Kawai ES110 / Kawai ES110 Review / Kawai ES110 Best Price / Kawai ES110 Comparison & Function – Digital Piano Best Review
Kawai has released their newest ES series piano at the NAAM Show of 2017. Several things have changed from the previous model ES100: Bluetooth, new action, lighter weight, and effect control but keeping the unique sound of Kawai. Special thing about Kawai ES110 is that the key sensor is located under the middle of the key instead of under the tip of the key. This system allows Kawai ES110 to response faster than other similar priced digital pianos. They used their Kawai 9′ grand piano and they sampled individual keys.

|Weight||26 ½ lbs||33 lbs|
- People say that there is one distinct different between ES110 and ES100, which is key action. ES110’s new RHC key action feels more natural and less springy than ES100.
- And Kawai ES110 now has 1/4″ output port when ES100 did not.
- Layer | With this technique, you can play two different sounds simultaneously on one key with Roland FP 30. You will be able to play ‘piano and string’ sound or ‘piano and organ’ sound simultaneously on one key. You will be able to make the performance more beautiful and will give you more enjoyment.
- Split | You can play two different instrument sounds on each hand within a keyboard. For example, left hand can play vibratone, right hand can play piano; it gives effect of one person playing two different instrument sound.
- Duet mode | You can divide the keyboard into two separate pianos with the same chromatic scale. This is will become playing two of 44-keys pianos; it is fit for performance or a lesson between a student and a teacher. Transpose Function | You can easily harmonize with different instruments.
