GRAND IMPRESSION, COMPACT FOOTPRINT

A modern digital piano that leaves a grand impression – this is the bold concept behind the new DG30.   This striking instrument combines Kawai's authentic digital piano keyboard and sound technologies and marries them with a contemporary grand piano-like cabinet, finished in luxurious ebony polish.  Like a piece of fine furniture, the DG30 will surely complement the interior of almost any room, while its compact size and shape allows this impressive instrument to occupy less space than even the smallest baby grands.       

THE TOUCH OF A GRAND PIANO: RESPONSIVE HAMMER III KEYBOARD ACTION           

The DG30's Responsive Hammer III keyboard action recreates the supreme touch of an acoustic grand piano, with its realistic movement and rigid, springless design providing a smooth and natural piano playing experience.  The instrument's triple-sensor key detection system enhances responsiveness and accuracy, while structural reinforcements throughout the action assembly help to minimise noise and key wobble during staccato and fortissimo passages.

The weight of the keyboard is appropriately graded to mirror the heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers of an acoustic piano, while let-off simulation recreates the subtle 'notch' sensation felt when softly playing the keys of a grand piano.  These important characteristics allow discerning pianists to practise their expanding repertoire with confidence, and ensure that there are no unpleasant surprises when called upon to perform using the finest acoustic grand pianos.

IVORY TOUCH KEY SURFACES                  

The impressive DG30 features Kawai's highly regarded Ivory Touch key surfaces as standard.  This finely textured material gently absorbs fingertip perspiration and oils to assist playing control, and possesses a natural, matte finish that is smooth but not slippery.

Furthermore, this moisture is absorbed without dirt or grease permeating the surface, allowing the keytops to be wiped clean easily using just a damp cloth.

LET-OFF SIMULATION

As the most authentic digital piano keyboard action in its class, Responsive Hammer III even reproduces the 'let-off' characteristic of acoustic piano actions. 

This subtle 'notch' sensation can be felt when playing the keys of a grand piano very gently, and may be used by experienced pianists to aid control when playing pianissimo passages.            

AUTHENTIC 88-KEY COUNTERWEIGHTS

In addition to grade-weighted hammers, the Responsive Hammer III keyboard action also features counterweights embedded within each black and white key.

As with an acoustic piano, these finely balanced weights help to lighten the touch of the keyboard during pianissimo passages, while adding a feel of greater substance when playing with force.

TRIPLE SENSOR KEY DETECTION

The Responsive Hammer III keyboard action utilises an accurate triple-sensor key detection system for enhanced playing realism.

The added third sensor improves responsiveness when playing the same key repeatedly, and unlike conventional two sensor keyboard actions found in many digital pianos, allows the sound of a single note to be gradually 'layered' without the previous tone being lost.

In addition, Kawai's action technology also monitors the speed at which each key is lifted, influencing the release character of piano sounds, and providing a greater range of expression between staccato and legato playing.

THE SOUND OF A GRAND PIANO: THREE WORLD-CLASS INSTRUMENTS

Earning a reputation as the 'premier pianos of Japan', Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their outstanding tonal clarity and exceptional dynamic range.

The new DG30 captures the magnificent tone of two premier Shigeru Kawai instruments: the flagship SK-EX Concert and mid-sized SK-5 Studio grand pianos, allowing musicians to enjoy the contrasting properties of each.
In addition, the DG30 also features the distinctive sound of Kawai's highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which has frequently been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others.

All three instruments are faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using proprietary Harmonic Imaging™ sound technology, to establish a new standard in digital piano tonal quality.

FULL 88-KEY STEREO PIANO SAMPLING

The rich, expressive sound of the SK-EX and EX concert grand pianos is at the heart of the DG30, with all eighty-eight keys of these world-class instruments painstakingly recorded, meticulously analysed, and accurately reproduced as high-fidelity digital waveforms.

Recording each key individually in this way – as opposed to stretching the same tone over several different notes – preserves the grand pianos' unique harmonic character, and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any one of the DG30's weighted keys is a faithful representation of the original acoustic source.             

HARMONIC IMAGING TECHNOLOGY

When playing a fine piano, the amount of pressure applied to the keyboard affects not only the volume of the sound produced, but also the unique tonal character of each note.  Therefore, in order to construct a realistic acoustic portrait of each grand piano, not only is each key recorded individually, but also at a wide variety of different volumes, ranging from gentle pianissimo to thunderous fortissimo.

The DG30 offers a highly detailed acoustic portrait, employing Kawai's proprietary Progressive Harmonic Imaging sampling technology to ensure smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range.

PERSONALISED PIANO ADJUSTMENTS

The knowledge and skill of an experienced piano technician is essential to bring out the best of a fine acoustic piano. In addition to tuning each note, the technician also performs numerous regulation and voicing adjustments that allow the instrument to truly sing.

The DG30's powerful Virtual Technician function simulates these refinements digitally, allowing discerning musicians to shape aspects of the selected piano's character to suit their personal preferences.

Perform touch weight and voicing adjustments, regulate hammer and key release noises, and fine-tune string, damper, and cabinet resonances.  It is even possible to adjust the precise tuning, volume, and character of individual notes – all in real-time.

PREMIUM SPEAKER DRIVERS

The DG30's premium speaker drivers have been selected for their flat frequency response and ultra-low distortion characteristics, ensuring the most accurate reproduction of the original Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE 4-SPEAKER OUTPUT SYSTEM

The DG30's 4-speaker output system is designed to reproduce the harmonic spectrum of an acoustic piano. Lower-range frequencies are delivered through the underside of the instrument, while mid and high frequencies are projected outward via the soundboard-mounted speakers, then reflect against the polished topboard.  The result is an expansive tone that closely mirrors the sound projection of a grand piano.

THE VARIETY OF A DIGITAL PIANO: CONVENIENCE & FLEXIBILITY

Complementing the instrument's class-leading Responsive Hammer III keyboard action and Progressive Harmonic Imaging piano sounds, the DG30 also offers a strong selection of digital piano features that further enhance one's musical enjoyment.

Wireless Bluetooth® connectivity, USB audio record/playback, Dual, Split, and Four Hands keyboard modes, and a rich assortment of instrumental voices add greater variety to players' performances, while the convenient metronome function and integrated lessons ensure that regular practise is both productive and engaging for aspiring pianists.

INTEGRATED BLUETOOTH® CONNECTIVITY

In addition to standard USB and MIDI jacks for connecting to computers or other instruments, the DG30 also features integrated Bluetooth® MIDI and Audio technologies that allow the instrument to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly.

Once paired with a phone, tablet, or laptop, DG30 owners can enjoy a wide variety of exciting music-related apps that enhance their learning and playing experience, or stream audio from songs and videos directly through the instrument's premium amplifier and speaker systems without the need to connect additional cables.

RICH SOUND SELECTION

Supplementing the beautiful acoustic piano voices, the DG30 also features an excellent selection of additional sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar or church organs, to strings, human choirs, and synth pads, including a full palette of GM2 compatible instrument and drumkits.

The Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections.

The latter feature is particularly useful in learning environments, allowing teacher and student (or student and student) to play together at the same time using a single instrument.

FLEXIBLE USB CONNECTIVITY

The DG30 is equipped with modern USB connectors that not only allow the instrument to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly.

This latter USB to Device functionality allows favourite instrument registrations, and memorable recorder songs stored within internal memory to be safely preserved on USB flash drives, or for 16-track standard MIDI files (SMF) to be recorded, played back, and enjoyed using the instrument's superb Progressive Harmonic Imaging sounds.

MP3/WAV PLAYBACK & RECORD

USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favourite songs.

It is even possible to record and overdub entire performances directly as MP3 or WAV audio files for emailing to family and friends, or casual listening away from the piano.

GRAND FEEL PEDAL SYSTEM

Reinforcing Kawai's reputation as a leader in digital piano realism is the Grand Feel Pedal System.  This unique feature accurately replicates the position and individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano to further enhance the DG30's acoustic piano-like authenticity.

SUPERIOR HEADPHONE EXPERIENCE

The DG30's Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology enhances the depth and realism of the instrument's sound when listening through headphones or earphones. The player can select one of three different acoustic presets that adjust the spatial positioning of the sound, while also helping to reduce auditory fatigue when using earphones or headphones for extended periods of time.

In addition, the DG30 also allows players to select a variety of headphone types (Open, Semi-open, Closed, In-Ear, Canal, etc.) for an optimised listening experience.

BUILT-IN LESSON FUNCTION

The DG30's convenient lesson function allows aspiring pianists to learn piano with classical Czerny, Chopin, Burgmüller, Beyer, Bach, and Beethoven etudes, or a collection of songs from the popular Alfred's Basic, Adult, and Premier course books.

With a strong emphasis on acoustic piano realism, the DG30 also features traditional finger exercises, scales, and warm-up drills, and includes companion books for all classical scores to further aid one's piano development.

GRAND PERFORMANCE WITHIN A MODERN, PREMIUM CABINET

The DG30's attractive, grand piano-like cabinet is finished from top to toe in luxurious Ebony Polish, with silver-chrome fittings completing a modern, elegant look.  Its flat fascia and tall upper board give the instrument a traditional yet minimalist quality, that elevates the artistry of the pianist as their hands reflect in the mirror-like surface.               

Opening the instrument's sturdy topboard reveals a beautifully polished wooden soundboard, complete with a decorative braid trim lining the piano's polished inner rim.

Despite its grand appearance, the DG30 is a surprisingly compact instrument, occupying a depth of just 87 cm (34 1/4 inches).  This relatively small footprint allows the piano to be enjoyed in smaller spaces that may struggle to accommodate an acoustic grand piano, while still presenting a sophisticated, professional character.                  

TWO-POSITION TOPBOARD

The DG30 features two lid props, allowing the topboard angle to be adjusted depending on one's preferred visual aesthetic, or tonal character.

Using the longer prop sets the topboard to the regular, fully-open position, allowing the instrument's sound to project fully for a bright and clear tonal character.  However, the shorter prop sets the topboard in a partially closed position, resulting in a darker, more mellow quality.

BROAD, ADJUSTABLE MUSIC REST

The DG30's broad music rest is engineered to accommodate the most ambitious musical works, with a high-quality surface and attractive round design.

As with a grand piano, the viewing angle of the instrument's music rest can be adjusted to suit the performer's playing position, or laid flat for convenience when notating scores or sketching musical ideas.

PREMIUM AUDIO TECHNOLOGIES, POWERED BY ONKYO

Developed in collaboration with Onkyo, one of Japan's leading premium audio equipment manufacturers, the DG30 features advanced motherboard, amplifier, and audio delivery systems.  These premium components combine to deliver superb audio quality, producing an extremely rich, clear sound with minimal distortion.

ONKYO DESIGNED SOUND HARDWARE

The DG30 motherboard and sound hardware is designed for precise signal conversion and optimum sound quality.  Onkyo's unrivalled knowledge and experience in producing premium audio components ensures clear, high-fidelity sound with minimal distortion.

Good service and fair selection of instruments. The sales pitch was a little bit much for me, (as a pro musician I don’t need to be told and shown how hammers and sustain works…!) but the sales staff were very knowledgeable nonetheless, and you could definitely put this down to over enthusiasm which isn’t a bad thing. I was left alone to try instruments for some time though which I really appreciated and I feel I made the right decision, and I’m really happy with my new piano. Delivery was prompt and careful and I’m overall very happy.

Had a most pleasant and informative time with Steve at Keysounds. Not having played an instrument before, especially a piano, my only knowledge of what instrument to purchase was derived from the internet. Steve, built upon that and directed me to my ultimate purchase. I am absolutely delighted with my Casio and look forward to meeting Steve again when I have progressed with my learning.

It’s been about 30 years since I played a keyboard and so much has changed. I explained what I wanted to do and was guided to a product that fitted my requirements better than the item I originally saw on YouTube. Having had a month with it, I see that it was the right choice. An amazing instrument.

Lovely dealing with Keysound. Good advice was given freely and delivery with assembly was quick. I've been invited into the shop when I can get to
Leicester so I can be shown the things the piano can do. I also got a follow up phone call the day after delivery to check everything was ok. I bought a Kawai CA79. Excellent instrument that sounds wonderfully rich when played at low volume which suits my arrangements perfectly.
