Kawai CS 8 Digital piano

Luxurious, elegant, classic – nothing says piano quite like the refined beauty of polished ebony with silver hardware parts. The evocative character of a silky smooth, rich black cabinet elevates the musical instrument to that of a piece of fine furniture, while simultaneously raising the artistic aspirations of the performer.
