Kawai CA48SB Overview

  • 1Description

The satin black CA Series CA48 Digital Piano from Kawai is an addition to Kawai's digital piano lineup that features Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action, the SK-EX and EX concert grand piano sounds, an internal recorder, and modern Bluetooth connectivity. It offers many of the strengths of the premium Concert Artist models in a more compact and affordable design. The instrument is suitable for the home or studio and can be used by beginners, teachers, or professionals to deliver a realistic grand-piano touch, tone, and feel.

In addition to the acoustic piano voices, the CA48 also features a modest selection of additional sounds, ranging from electric pianos, drawbar or church organs, to strings, human choirs, and synth pads, inviting beginners, students, and musicians to add greater variety to their performances. The CA48 is equipped with a metronome and an internal recorder offering a 3-song, 10,000-note capacity, which can be used as a learning tool to monitor your own performance.

Built with a 40W stereo amplifier and two 5.1" woofers with 2" tweeter speakers, the digital piano also features a sliding key cover, a three digit LED display, a collapsible music rest, and is equipped with a selection of lesson songs by classical composers. Also, Alfred's Basic Piano Library lesson books are included.

With its natural tone and wonderfully responsive touch, the CA Series CA48 Digital Piano is fully equipped to get you playing, practicing, and composing immediately.

Touch
The CA48 utilizes graded Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action. The GF Compact action has been designed to reproduce the authentic touch-weight characteristics of Kawai's industry-leading Grand Feel keyboard actions in a smaller size.
Tone
The expressive sound of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX concert grand pianos is at the heart of the CA48 digital piano. Both pianos are faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using advanced Harmonic Imaging sound technology to establish the digital piano tonal quality.
Additional Sounds
Supplementing the acoustic piano voices, the CA48 also features a modest selection of additional sounds, ranging from electric pianos, drawbar or church organs, to strings, human choirs, and synth pads, inviting musicians to add greater variety to their performances.
Bluetooth
In addition to standard USB and MIDI jacks for connecting to computers or other instruments, the CA48 digital piano also features integrated Bluetooth MIDI technology that allows you to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly. Once paired with a phone, tablet, or laptop, the CA48 digital piano allows you to enjoy a wide variety of music-related apps that can enhance your learning and playing experience.
Concert Magic
Concert Magic is a feature that allows everyone, even non-players, to experience the thrill of playing real music. It is an intelligent, interactive system that makes playing songs incredibly simple and fun. Just tap any key and Concert Magic will take care of playing the correct notes. You can control the song's rhythm and expression.
Lessons and Exercises
The CA48's convenient lesson function allows aspiring pianists to learn piano with classical Czerny, Burgmüller, and Beyer etudes, or collections of songs from the popular Alfred's Basic Piano course books.
Virtual Technician
The skill of an experienced piano technician is essential to bring out the best of a fine acoustic piano. In addition to tuning, the technician also performs numerous regulation and voicing adjustments. The CA48's Virtual Technician 'Smart Mode' simulates these refinements digitally, with ten preset configurations that intelligently adjust various characteristics of the grand piano to match different musical styles.
Grand Feel Pedal System
The CA48 features three pedals: soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). The Grand Feel Pedal System accurately replicates the position and individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano to further enhance the CA48's acoustic piano-like authenticity.
Superior Headphone Experience
The CA48's Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology enhances the depth and realism of the instrument's sound when listening through headphones or earphones. You can select one of three different acoustic presets that adjust the spatial positioning of the sound, while also helping to reduce auditory fatigue when using earphones or headphones for extended periods of time.
