pianos were founded by Koichi Kawai, a talented inventor,
who pioneered many new techniques in piano construction.
This tradition has been carried on by three generations
of the family and is reflected in their high-tech
Pyuyo Grand Piano factory which opened 1980 and is
still recognised as the most advanced of it's kind
in the world.
pianos are all fitted with the revolutionary Millenium
III action which uses carbon fibre instead of wood
hence overcoming many problems with shrinking and
swelling and leads to a durable, troublefree mechanism.

range of acoustic pianos can be installed with their
"Vari-Touch" mechanism which allows you
to personalize the 'feel' of the piano to suit different
players at the touch of a button.
problem of finding private practise is solved by Kawai's
Anytime midi interface which mutes the acoustic
piano and allows silent playing through headphones.
It also allows midi connection to computers, sound
modules etc. The Anytime module can be added to models
K2, K3, K5, GE20 GE30 and RX2.
