ES 100 Portable Piano
An excellent introduction to Kawai’s portable piano line-up.The ES100 is the latest addition to Kawai’s highly respected series of portable digital pianos, combining our class-leading authentic keyboard action and piano sound technologies within a lightweight, affordable package.
Kawai has been crafting musical instruments for over 85 years, maintaining traditional processes while embracing the latest technical innovations. These decades of experience afford our engineers a wealth of knowledge from which to create stunning digital instruments, in a quest to perfect the art of the piano.
Realistic touch, natural motionThe ES100’s Advanced Hammer Action IV-F (AHA IV-F) keyboard action has been developed to represent the distinctive touch of an acoustic grand piano. Its springless technology and sturdy construction delivers consistent upward and downward motion for a smooth, natural, and highly authentic piano playing experience.
Featuring 88 grade-weighted keys, the ES100 keyboard responds just like a real grand piano, and is therefore an ideal choice for beginners seeking a starter instrument on which to learn. However, its realistic, acoustic-like touch will also appeal to more experienced players looking for a second piano for after-hours practise, or to simply enjoy a little music at the holiday home.
True character in every noteYet, regardless of playing ability, the ES100’s rich piano sounds are guaranteed to inspire and impress, with unique 88-key sampling, advanced resonance effects, and proprietary Harmonic Imaging technology delivering a realistic and highly enjoyable musical experience.
Inspiring featuresMoreover, the impressive ES100 also offers a variety of useful features to complement its authentic keyboard touch and rich grand piano sounds. The integrated lesson function, with adjustable metronome and song recorder, is an invaluable tool for aspiring pianists, while additional instrument voices, Dual and Split playing modes, and 100 drum rhythms allow players of all levels to indulge their creative spirit.
Reverbs, noises, & resonancesAdditional reverberation effects that simulate the acoustic environment of a recital room, live stage, or concert hall are also applied, with settings to adjust voicing, sympathetic resonance, and other acoustic characteristics. The result is a rich, vibrant piano tone that delivers breathtaking realism and authenticity.
At just 15 kilograms (33 lbs.), this portable instrument is light enough to be carried around the home, school, or place of worship with comfortable ease.
Optional stand & triple pedalsTransform the ES100 into an ultra-compact piano replacement suitable for any room with the matching HML-1 stand and F-350 triple pedal accessories.
