Kawai MP-5 Stage Digital Piano

$1,995.00 $2,995.00


Start with 192 notes of polyphony, 256 editable sounds and 4 effects processors. Add the class-leading Advanced Hammer Action (AHA IV-E) and a new generation of superb sounds including the highly-respected Kawai EX Concert Grand Piano, and you begin to see the core elements that made the Kawai MP5 Professional Stage Piano one of the finest portable instruments for the performing stage or studio. The new AHA IV-E action featured “Acoustic Reaction” technology that added more resistance to each keystroke for greater dynamic control and expression. In the sound creation process, the Kawai EX Concert Grand was placed in an anechoic (echoless) chamber to provide the essence of pure grand piano tone for the MP5 digital piano.

The built-in Virtual Technician function allowed the user to digitally alter (or “voice”) the piano sound to suit specific musical preferences and situations. In addition to its outstanding piano tone, the MP5 offered 256 high-quality instrumental sounds including electric pianos, organs, pads, strings, brass, basses, drums and a host of other useful instruments to inspire musical creativity. Although the MP5 is now a Kawai Legacy Product, it played an essential role in the technological innovations that led to the current generation of MP Series instruments which have been named “Pro Digital Keyboard Line of the Year” by the readers of MMR Magazine in 2014, 2018 and 2019. See why today’s MP Series models are so highly revered.
