Featuring the Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action, beautiful SK-EX and EX concert grand piano sounds, and premium ONKYO audio technology, the piano-focussed CA49 offers many of the strengths of the premium Concert Artist models within a more compact and affordable package.

Grand Feel Compact wooden-key action with Ivory Touch key surfaces and ムLet-Offメ mechanism

The CA49 digital piano utilises Kawaiメs latest Grand Feel Compact keyboard action, which draws upon 90 years of acoustic piano craftsmanship to provide an exceptionally realistic playing experience. All 88 black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, with finely textured Ivory Touch key surfaces applied to assist playing control. As with an acoustic grand piano action, the keys rest on a metal balance pin and move with a smooth seesaw-like motion, while the extended pivot length ensures a consistent, evenly-balanced touch weight ヨ even when playing towards the back of the key. The Grand Feel Compact action also incorporates grade-weighted hammers, bass region counterweights, and let-off simulation for added authenticity, while its accurate triple-sensor key detection system allows rapidly repeated notes such as trills to be performed smoothly, without unnatural breaks in sound.

Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX instruments reproduced with Harmonic Imaging sound technology

The CA49 digital piano captures the magnificent tone of Kawaiメs flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert grand piano. Widely regarded as the ムpremier pianos of Japanメ, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity. In addition, the CA49 also features the distinctive sound of Kawaiメs highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which has frequently been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others.

Both instruments have been carefully recorded, meticulously analysed, and faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using Harmonic Imagingル sound technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo. The CA Seriesメ improved Virtual Technician feature simulates these refinements digitally, allowing performers to shape various aspects of the pianoメs tonal character and playability to suit their unique personal preferences, before storing favourite setups to memory for immediate recall.

Other Features

As with the latest CA99 and CA79 models, the CA49 incorporates technologies developed in collaboration with premium audio equipment manufacturer, Onkyo, and features a new motherboard and amplification system designed to deliver richer, higher quality sound.

The CA49 also boasts an improved cheekblock control panel that includes a modern OLED graphic display for easy operation.

The CA49 digital piano features a three song recorder, allowing performances to be recorded to internal memory and played back at the touch of a button. In addition, the convenient lesson feature allows aspiring pianists to learn the piano using a built-in collection of etudes from Czerny and Burgm�ller, or songs from the popular Alfred course books. The left and right hand parts for each piece can be practiced separately, while adjusting the tempo allows more difficult passages to be perfected.

The CA49 features song recorder capabilities that both enhances oneメs playing enjoyment and assists with piano study. The CA49メs useful recorder allows up to three songs to be stored in internal memory and played back at the touch of a button, serving as a convenient self-assessment tool for players of all skill levels

Improved Headphone Experience

The CA48メs Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology enhances the depth and realism of the instrumentメs various sounds when using headphones or earphones, while also helping to reduce auditory fatigue when listening for extended periods of time.

Bluetooth Connectivity

In addition to standard MIDI jacks for connecting to other instruments, the CA49 digital piano also boasts integrated Bluetooth MIDI technology that allows the instrument to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly. Once connected to a phone, tablet, or laptop, CA49 digital piano owners can enjoy a wide variety of exciting music-related apps that enhance their learning and playing experience without additional cables.

Adjustable Music Rest

As with a grand piano, the viewing angle of the CA48メs music rest can be adjusted to suit the performerメs playing position, or laid flat for convenience when notating scores.

Grand Feel Pedal System

The Grand Feel Pedal System accurately replicates the position and individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano to further enhance playing authenticity.
