IVORY TOUCH KEY SURFACES

The impressive CN27 features our highly-regarded Ivory Touch key surfaces This finely-textured material gently absorbs fingertip perspiration and oils to avoid slipping and provide greater playing control. Moisture is absorbed without dirt or grease permeating the key surfaces, allowing them to be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.

VIRTUAL TECHNICIAN

Virtual Technician

Virtual Technician

A skilled piano technician can personalize an acoustic piano’s sound and touch response. Kawai’s exclusive Virtual Technician does the same for the CN27 digital piano.

GRAND FEEL PEDAL SYSTEM

IThe CN27 features three pedals – soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). The new Grand Feel Pedal System reproduces the individual weighting of each of the three pedals of the Kawai EX concert grand.

ADJUSTABLE MUSIC REST

As with a grand piano, the viewing angle of the CN27 music rest can be adjusted to suit the performer’s playing position or laid flat to provide a level surface for notating scores.
