The Kawai Concert Artist (CA) Series is one of the most award-winning lines of digital pianos available today. As a beneficiary of this successful legacy, the CA48 offers a truly powerful best-in-class piano experience. At the heart of CA48 is the acoustic piano sound of the celebrated Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX Concert Grand Pianos. Our proprietary sampling and modeling techniques capture all 88 keys individually to provide the most discerning player with the very best in digital piano tonal quality. Working hand-in-hand with these authentic sounds is our “Grand Feel Compact” wooden-key keyboard action, the most refined keyboard touch available in a high-end introductory model. The elegant modern-meets-classic appearance of the CA48 digital piano is reinforced by the subtle placement of the compact control panel in the keyboard side panel, maintaining a graceful cabinet design that enhances any home décor. Drawing deeply from over 90 years of piano building expertise has created an introductory model of the CA Series that is capable of inspiring players of all levels for years to come.

The knowledge and 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 SYSTEMrand Feel Pedal System
The CA48 features three pedals – soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). The new 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. The player 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.
