Kawai 506 Upright Piano
The 506 is a wonderful piano for the money. Built tough enough to withstand the high demands of a music school, this piano is suitable for heavy playing. In many cases, this piano will out perform a number of used pianos similarly priced or even one's priced a thousand to two thousand dollars more.
- Ultra-Responsive™ direct blow action
- Solid spruce soundboard
- Extended scale design
- Sturdy "Toe-Block" cabinet design
The 506 features Kawai's exclusive Ultra-Responsive™ direct blow action that offers extraordinary touch. Hammer heads are made with 100 percent wool felt. Hammer shanks and mouldings are made with top-quality maple. To make the action resistant to climatic and seasonal changes in temperature and humidity, Kawai pioneered the use of aluminum action rails, aluminum hammer rest rails and precision parts made of stable, low-friction ABS Styran.
Kawai's wood technologists select only the finest spruce to ensure exceptional dynamic range and superb tone across the entire spectrum of sound. The exceptionally large soundboard area (2,015 sq. in.) found in the 506, produces great tonal power and resonance.
The cast iron plate is subjected to as much as 20 tons of string tension. Kawai uses state-of-the-art CAD technology to match the strength and natural tonal resonances of the plate to the require- ments of the plate design. The proper combination of plate design, back post structure and string tension provides enhanced tuning stability for decades of reliable performance.
Back posts support the plate and help maintain its structural integrity over the life of the piano. Kawai's laminated back post construction is designed for maximum rigidity to provide enhanced tuning stability and decades of reliable performance.
Kawai's exclusive Cast Brass Pedals are extremely rugged. Made with a permanently bonded brass layer over an aluminum core, they are significantly stronger and more durable than conventional “capped” pedals for lasting beauty and silent operation.
Stronger than conventional round levers, the square-tube pedal levers on the 506 provide a flat surface for pedal wing nuts to reduce the possibility of noise when the pedals are depressed.
To ensure your peace of mind and protect the value of your investment, every New Kawai 506 piano is covered by a Ten Year Fully Transferable Warranty. This warranty is the seal of Kawai's craftsmanship—and the assurance of your satisfaction for many years to come.
