- Detailed description
- Technical information
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.
Kawai’s industry-acclaimed Millennium III Action is renowned for its state-of-the-art ABS-Carbon components which generate quick repetition and high power with less effort. ABS-carbon parts and Kawai’s aluminum action rails are impervious to changes in temperature and humidity, resulting in a more stable, trouble-free action. Millennium III Action is considered one of the best piano actions available, exciting both piano technicians and pianists alike.
Shigeru, the son of Koichi Kawai entered the piano business as a young man in 1946. Although he was a member of the Kawai family, Shigeru spent his early years learning the piano building process as a regular worker. He put in long hours laboring diligently in the manufacturing area, sometimes sleeping overnight in the factory as an expression of his dedication to the craft.
For all Shigeru Kawai owners, Kawai offers an inimitable experience. A Master Piano Artisan (MPA) from Kawai, will come to your home to provide a complete service-check and tuning regulation. This appointment will take place approximately 12-18 months after the purchase of the Shigeru, as the piano needs to settle in to the new setting. This service is provided in the spirit (and the art) of doing everything possible to optimize the sound and provide everything necessary to give the instrument life.
