The Kawai CA-59 is a premium digital piano that guarantees a good touch and sound for an exceptional value to price. This model is part of the very popular and award winning Concert Artist series.

The Kawai CA-59 features the Grand Feel Compact keyboard with wooden keys and samples of the Shigeru Kawai Concert Grand. This model has an even fuller and richer sound than the Kawai CA-49 because of the higher quality sampling technology (Harmonic Imaging XL) and better amplification.

The Kawai CA-59 Digital Piano continues a legacy of authentic sound and premium features found in the CA-58 model. This updated model preserves the core Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action and acoustic piano sound of Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX Concert Grand Pianos, while also adding a new Shigeru Kawai SK-5 piano sound, providing a more natural and realistic playing experience. The Kawai CA-59 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.

Existing Bluetooth® MIDI functionality is complemented by the addition of Bluetooth® Audio, with aptX support providing high-quality wireless audio with minimal latency The KAwai CA-59 possesses an updated cabinet design, adopting the taller body and rounded edge details of the larger Concert Artist models, for a more impressive, premium experience. It also boasts a modernized OLED graphic display for easier visibility. The Kawai Concert Artist (CA) Series is one of the most award-winning lines of digital pianos available today, and the CA-59 is a model that will deliver players of all levels an exceptional playing experience.

TONE

The Kawai CA-59 digital piano captures the magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert grand piano. Widely regarded as the “premier pianos of Japan”, 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 CA-59 also features the distinctive sound of Kawai’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™ 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.

TOUCH

The Kawai CA-59 digital piano utilizes Kawai’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 – 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.

USB AUDIO & STORAGE

The Kawai CA-59 digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that not only allow this instrument to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This “USB to Device” feature allows instrument settings or recorded songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware.

USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favourite songs. It is even possible to record performances as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on the move, or for further editing using an audio workstation.

RICH SOUND SELECTION

The Kawai CA-59 digital piano also features an excellent selection of additional instrument sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar and church organs, to strings, human choirs, and even atmospheric synth-style pads, inviting musicians to add greater variety to their performances.

Furthermore, the Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections. The volume balances for each playing mode can also be adjusted quickly and easily using the real-time panel controls.

VIRTUAL TECHNICIAN

The Kawai CA-59 digital piano’s Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the selected acoustic piano, electric piano, or harpsichord sound to be shaped at the touch of a button, with settings to adjust voicing and regulation, string, damper, and cabinet resonances, and subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. It is even possible to adjust the precise tuning and volume of individual notes, before storing one’s personalized instrument configuration to memory.

USB TO DEVICE FUNCTIONALITY

The Kawai CA-59 digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that not only allow this instrument to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This “USB to Device” feature allows instrument settings or recorded songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware.

USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favourite songs. It is even possible to record performances as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on the move, or for further editing using an audio workstation.

BLUETOOTH® MIDI CONNECTIVITY

In addition to standard MIDI jacks for connecting to other instruments, the Kawai CA-59 digital piano also boasts integrated Bluetooth MIDI and Audio technology that allows the instrument to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly. Once connected to a phone, tablet, or laptop, Kawai CA59 digital piano owners can enjoy a wide variety of exciting music-related apps that enhance their learning and playing experience, or stream audio from songs and videos through the instrument’s speakers without additional cables.

LESSONS AND EXERCISES

The Kawai CA-59 Concert Artist comes with a lesson function allowing budding pianists to practice the piano using a selection of built-in song books and finger exercises. The left and right hand parts of each piece can be practiced separately, adjusting the tempo to perfect difficult passages, before being recorded for self-evaluation.

GRAND FEEL PEDAL SYSTEM

The Kawai CA-59 features three pedals – soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). The Grand Feel Pedal System reproduces the individual weighting of each of the three pedals of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano.
