High-quality components that make up a Japanese piano

In our opinion, the Kawai K15 is a functional and practical model that is a combination of timeless design and modernity. The spruce soundboard and four laminated slats, located in the back of the instrument, provide adequate support for tuning stability, and the universal size of the piano works well in both spacious and smaller rooms.

The Japanese model also has the advantage of a reliable hammer system created from carefully selected pieces of wood that meet the sound expectations, maximising the enjoyment of playing the instrument. The ability to play with headphones, thanks to the silent system option built into the K15 ATX piano, allows you to practice smooth movements with even greater concentration.

About the brand

The founder of the company, Koichi Kawai, set as his primary goal and dream to build the best piano in the world. Thanks to constant development and obstinacy, KAWAI instruments gained newer and more spectacular solutions. After the founder’s death, Shigeru Kawai was left at the helm and, thanks to his passion and extraordinary intelligence, he built a network of Kawai Music Schools and the Kawai Music Academy, which enabled him to train the right teachers. The prestige of the brand was constantly growing. This was largely due to the warm, deep sound that every instrument bearing the Kawai mark guaranteed. Today, its pianos are recognised all over the world.


  1. I agree, six months ago I bought this piano for my daughter when the keyboard was no longer enough. We were considering a Yamaha b1 and just a Kawai k15. After playing both, my daughter chose the Kawai. She plays it every day and is very happy with it 🙂 We both recommend the Kawai k15 to young pianists and their parents.
