Customer Comments and Questions
Hi there. Thank you for your articles. What is your opinion on the kawai CA15?
We are a small, brand new primary school in central Manchester, opening in
temporary accommodation in two weeks before moving into a new build school
nearby in Sept 14.
I want a piano which will be good for assemblies in the hall, for our specialist
music teacher to use and also for beginner lessons for year 3 children (7-8 year olds).
Any others you can recommend?
Reply/ Hi George
I would like to recommend you the Yamaha CLP430.
Most schools use Yamaha.
Yamaha pianos are more suited for school use than
Kawai. They’re also more widely used.
The CLP430 has a clearer, more realistic piano tone.
This is to do with the original sampling and speaker sizes.
The Kawai has 2 x 20 watt speakers. The Yamaha
has 2 x 30 watts. So the Yamaha CLP430 will carry
its sound a lot better in a school hall.
The Kawai does has a nice responsive key action,
but the Yamaha feels firmer and more like a real piano.
Let me know if you would like more information.
