Impressions: “The Shigeru SK6 is an incredible piano to sit and play. The tone is dark and rich – solid and silky. The bass and mid ranges contain more of this warmth while the top end has a bit more sparkle. Touch is tapered so that at soft levels, it is delicate, almost like breathing. As you step up to mezzo forte and then fortissimo, it gradually moves to appropriate firmness matching the force of the keys. One thing I found interesting is that the SK6 retains the lovely dark tones even at highest volumes.” ~ Glen Barkman

History: The Kawai company was formed in 1927 by a group consisting of Koichi Kawai and 7 of his colleagues. By 1955 Shigeru Kawai led the company into modern manufacturing and by 1963 launched Kawai centers around the world. In 1989, Hirotaka Kawai took on the presidency of the company and for the first time expanded production outside of Japan. Shigeru Kawai is the hand crafted premium grade grand pianos that are manufactured in their own factory.
