The CA48 is the first Kawai 88-key digital piano to utilise the Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action.

Featuring the brand new Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action, beautiful SK-EX and EX concert grand piano sounds, and modern Bluetooth® connectivity, the piano-focussed CA48 offers many of the strengths of the premium Concert Artist models within a more compact and affordable package.

Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action
As its name suggest, the GF Compact action has been designed to reproduce the authentic touch weight characteristics of the industry-leading Grand Feel keyboard actions, within a smaller form factor. The new action retains the long wooden keysticks used for all 88 black and white keys, and the familiar ‘seesaw’ mechanism employed by acoustic grand piano actions for centuries.  However, despite its smaller unit size, GF Compact features an extended key pivot length, providing a more consistent touch weight when playing towards the rear of the keyboard.  This crucial detail ensures the CA48 delivers the most realistic playing experience in its class, surpassing even the venerable RM3 Grand actions utilised by its predecessors.

Triple sensor key detection
The Grand Feel Compact keyboard action utilises an accurate triple-sensor key detection system for enhanced playing realism.The added third sensor improves responsiveness when playing the same key repeatedly, and unlike conventional two sensor keyboard actions found in many digital pianos, allows the sound of a single note to be gradually ‘layered’ without the previous tone being lost. In addition, Kawai’s action technology also monitors the speed at which each key is lifted, influencing the release character of piano sounds, and providing a greater range of expression between staccato and legato playing.

Built-in lesson function
The CA48’s convenient lesson function allows aspiring pianists to learn piano with classical Czerny, Burgmüller, and Beyer etudes, or collections of songs from the popular Alfred’s Basic Piano course books. The left and right hand parts of each etude/song can be practiced separately, using the adjustable metronome feature to perfect timing in difficult passages, before recording the completed piece for self-evaluation.

Couldn't be happier with SamAsh


This is literally the only place I could find this digital piano. It is bar none the best digital piano you can get in the states for less than $2000. Incredible action and sound. This is as close to a real piano you're going to get for the money and SamAsh is the only place you'll find it. Fast shipping as well. Couldn't be happier.
