New Kawai NV 10 Hybrid Piano
The NOVUS NV 10 is the first digital piano to incorporate Kawai’s leading acoustic grand piano keyboard action technology, renowned for its extended spruce key sticks, and innovative ABS Carbon components that are stronger, lighter, and more dimensionally stable than conventional wooden parts.
The specially adapted Millennium III Hybrid keyboard action utilised by the NV 10 replaces traditional felt hammers with new ABS equivalents that are individual graded in weight from bass to treble, while high-precision optical sensors take the place of metal strings, accurately reading the subtle movements of each hammer as the corresponding keys are played.
GRAND PIANO DAMPER MECHANISM FOR AUTHENTIC PEDAL CONTROL
In addition to featuring a full acoustic grand piano keyboard action, the NOVUS NV 10 is the first hybrid instrument to also incorporate a real grand piano damper mechanism. While there are no strings inside the NV 10 to require physical damping, this unique feature replicates the true weighting of a grand piano damper pedal, while also mechanically easing the keyboard action’s touch weight as the pedal is pressed.
