CA 18

Concert Grand touch and tone, Concert Artist affordability.

Featuring KAWAI's highly regarded wooden key action, and stunning 88-key piano sampling technology, the new CA18 offers an excellent introduction to Concert Artist quality at an attractive price.


KAWAI researchers understand that a responsive, tactile keyboard is essential for a truly satisfying playing experience. With this in mind, all black and white keys of the CA18 are crafted entirely from wood, allowing the weight of each key to accurately represent that of a concert grand piano. The AWA Grand PRO II design incorporates additional grand piano action characteristics, such as contrasting hammer weights - appropriately graded for each playing range, bass key counter-balancing and correctly located pivot points, providing a consistent, evenly balanced touch that satisfies the demands of even the most discerning pianist.



The CA18 captures the beautiful sound of KAWAI's highly acclaimed hand-built concert grand piano, with all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed, and faithfully reproduced using proprietary Harmonic Imaging™ technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original piano, while also providing the source for a selection of additional high-quality instrument sounds. Finally, reverb and damper effects are applied, delivering rich tones with breathtaking realism and authenticity.


The CA18 features two full-range speakers mounted discretely below the keybed, with two additional high-frequency tweeters offering greater clarity from the player's perspective. The four speakers combine, providing deep, rich bass tones and crisp clear treble frequencies, for an exceptionally vivid musical experience.
