Millennium III Upright Action features components made of ABS-Carbon, a composite material created by the infusion of carbon fiber into our renowned ABS Styran. ABS-Carbon is incredibly sturdy and rigid, which allows the creation of action parts that are lighter without sacrificing strength. The result is a stronger, faster action that offers more power, better control and greater stability than conventional all-wood actions.
ABS-carbon action parts The use of ABS-Carbon makes the action parts tremendously strong and consistent. ABS-Carbon is many times stronger than wood and is virtually impervious to shrinking and swelling due to humidity. This extraordinary combination of strength and stability allows ABS-Carbon action parts to transfer energy to the hammers with unparalleled efficiency, power, precision and nuance for a superb playing experience.
ABS Carbon flange & Serrated rail surface The action rail surface is finely serrated in three strategic area to secure the hammer, wippen and damper flanges in places for optimum action alignment and a more precise hammer strike.
Dual-Beam Aluminum HAMMER Rail The action rail is the “spine” of the piano’s action. K Series action rails are made of durable extruded aluminum with our advanced Dual-Beam design for strength and stability.
Die-Cast Aluminum Action Brackets Made from a custom mold, die-cast parts are formed exactly the same every time. The K Series pianos feature three aluminum action brackets that are die-cast to provide an added measure of strength, uniformity and stability for accurate touch over time.
Mahogany wood core & T-stapled, double felted hammers Mahogany hammer mouldings are lightweight and extremely responsive. Found on only the finest pianos, mahogany is used for the hammer mouldings on the entire line of K Series Professional Upright Pianos. All K Series hammers are T-Stapled to preserve hammer shape and fitted with an added interior layer of underfelt to support the creation of exceptional tone.
Tuning Pins K Series tuning pins are made from the finest steel, machine-threaded for maximum bidirectional torque and nickel plated to enhance beauty and provide long-term protection.
Energy-Reflecting Contour Bars Contour Bars reshape the speaking area of the soundboard to resemble the contour of a grand piano soundboard while reflecting sound energy back into the center for increased tonal power and sustain.
Strong, Balanced Back Assembly K Series pianos are designed with tremendous strength to ensure stability of tone and touch over time. On all K Series models, the soundboard is supported by exceptionally strong multi-laminated back posts and our proprietary “matched strength” iron plate. This philosophy ensures a sturdy, well-balanced back assembly that supports string tension and provides a solid foundation for outstanding tone.
Tapered Soundboard made of Solid Spruce The soundboard is the heart of a piano. Its purpose is to transform the vibrations of the piano’s strings into a rich, resounding tone. Kawai uses only straightgrained, quartersawn solid spruce for K Series soundboards. Each soundboard is strategically tapered to maximize its tone producing capability. Only those that meet or exceed our demanding quality standards are selected for use in our professional upright pianos.
Soft-Fall Fallboard Closing System The ultra-slow “Soft-Fall” closing system protects hands and the piano’s finish from the harm that a jarring close might cause
