Second-hand Kawai Pianos
When purchasing a pre-owned Kawai piano, it is imperative to ensure that the instrument has not been badly reconditioned using non-correct Kawai parts. There are many Kawai pianos imported into the UK from the Far East which are sold as ‘reconditioned’ but contain low-grade, non-genuine parts. Whilst they aesthetically look good, they are an unwise investment and acoustically are deficient in tonal qualities due to poor workmanship and incorrect parts. It is very important to keep the feel of the original key touch weight and action, hence the emphasis on buying from an approved Kawai supplier.
Coach House only supply second hand Kawai pianos that are either in first-class original condition or correctly overhauled using Kawai authentic materials. All pre-owned Kawai pianos are covered by the Coach House warranty.

Kawai Serial Numbers
The age of a Kawai piano is determined by its serial number. This is found in black lettering on the iron frame. Grand pianos will have the number near the front centre of the frame whilst the upright piano numbers will be at the top middle or top right.
