Responsive Hammer Compact II keyboard
The KDP-120 features the Responsive Hammer Compact II keyboard, with 88 graduated weighted keys. Thanks to the precise 3-sensor technology, pianists can expect a very natural playing feel. Designed to follow the principles of the Responsive Hammer III keyboard, you can enjoy a smooth attack, in a lighter and compact size, ideally suited to entry-level instruments like the KDP-120.
Grand Feel pedal system
The KDP-120 is equipped with the Grand Feel pedal system. In this system developed by Kawai, the resistance when using the three pedals (sustain, soft and sostenuto) corresponds to the playing feel of the pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano. The correct placement of the pedals was also taken into account.
Shigeru Kawai samples & Harmonic Imaging technology (HI)
The KDP-120 contains beautiful samples of the world famous Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano, which is played in many concert halls around the world and is often selected by professional pianists. Using Kawai's Harmonic Imaging sound technology, the sounds of all 88 keys are reproduced very faithfully and accurately. By recording each key individually in this way, the character of the acoustic grand piano is particularly well preserved.
In addition to acoustic piano sounds, the KDP-120 also offers a selection of other instrumental sounds, including electric pianos, organs, strings, acoustic and electric bass, and vibraphone.
Thanks to the Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology, the sound reproduction through the headphones is more realistic and spacious.
Premium speaker system and Low Volume Balance function
The KDP-120's stereo speaker system delivers a total amplification of 40W, spread across 2 speakers, filling the room very nicely with the warm Kawai sounds. The Low Volume Balance function intelligently adjusts the touch of the keyboard and the sound of the piano at a reduced volume.
Bluetooth MIDI connectivity
The KDP-120 features integrated Bluetooth MIDI connectivity that allow the instrument to communicate wirelessly with supported smart devices. So by connecting the instrument to a smartphone, tablet or laptop, you can take advantage of a wide range of interactive apps. You can also connect to Kawai's PianoRemote app, which allows you to adjust settings or sounds of the instrument through a user-friendly interface. The KDP-120 is also compatible with the PiaBookPlayer app, allowing you to view and listen to scores of many classical performances through the instrument's speakers.
