Kawai CA48 Grand Feel Compact Action

Kawai CA48 Kawai Grand Feel Compact

Kawai CA48 has Grand Feel Compact Action (Wooden-key) which is smaller than the original Grand Feel action but still stimulates the same feeling. CA48 has Ivory Touch surfaces which absorbs moisture from fingertips, giving better control over playing the piano.


*Escapement –the mechanism that allows the hammer to clear the stringafter striking, so that the stringcan vibrate (TheFreeDictionary). Player can feel tactile feeling of notch when presses a key.

Hammers of grand piano positioned horizontally therefore get affected by gravity directly, which enables faster key recovery. Hammers of upright piano are positioned vertically with springs (jack).
