An amazing and unique piano has just arrived in our used inventory!
It is essentially the “Holy Grail” of used baby grand pianos: Made in Japan, polished ebony, and in like-new condition….
But what’s particularly special is that a new piano like this from Kawai or Yamaha doesn’t actually exist. New Yamaha/Kawai baby grands are now made in Indonesia. The consensus in the technical and musical community (along with the judge & jury called “The Internet”) is that the Indonesian-made Kawai and Yamaha pianos aren’t as desirable or as valuable as genuine Japanese-made pianos.
To sweeten the deal, this Kawai has been installed with a PianoDisc QuietTime silencing system which allows for all sorts of possibilities:
–Private practicing with headphones
–128 instrument tones
–8 drum kits
–28 ensemble factory presets
–Audio in/out connections
–Dual-function headphone jacks
Comparing this piano to the current Yamaha GB1K with SG2 Silent system, this used Kawai wins by a landslide. It has over 10 times the number of sounds than the Yamaha, way more functionality, and it’s Japanese-made. The Yamaha SG2 Silent system that is installed on the Yamaha GB1K baby grand piano also doesn’t even have a metronome (let alone layering capabilities, preset/user instrument setups, drum kits, transpose, or even an LCD screen.)
Now, when you also consider that it is much more affordable than any new Yamaha Silent grand piano, the choice becomes very clear. Come check out our Kawai Silent Piano at Cordogan’s Pianoland or give us a call at 630-584-5000 (toll free 877-242-9944).
