Each Shigeru EX Concert Piano is conceived as a next step in the evolving art of the piano. Fewer than twenty are crafted each year for all the world. With its magnificent tone and wonderfully responsive touch, the EX can best be described with one word—incomparable.
Premier Piano of Japan
A Shigeru piano is much more than the intelligent application of material, labor and design. It is an art form born not from the head, but from the heart. Thus, the craftsman does far more than simply “build” it—he brings it to life. The sensitive nurturing of every part, every joint, every subtle nuance vests each piano with an intangible quality—a soul—that lives on from generation to generation. And those who own a Shigeru piano know that they possess not merely an instrument, but a partner in the musical pursuit of dreams.
