The Lounge Piano

An intimate Kawai upright with felt on. 2 dynamic layers....

The story

We acquired this piano from a former coworker about three years ago.

It sits in our lounge and is played lovingly by anyone who wishes.

The piano is a Kawaii upright, not old, not brand new, somewhere in-between.

We mostly leave it with the middle pedal down, which brings a layer of felt between the hammer and the strings.

We sampled this piano with two velocities – quiet and medium-loud.

We hope you enjoy this piano.

  • A weird piano sound not meant for everyone

    I am personally not a fan, but I can tell you it has some character into it. I don't really like the attack of it, since I find it very distracting and not that piano-like sound I am looking for. You might disagree, and please do so! It is very quiet though, so if you try to play a little louder you might start building up some white nose that I noticed when testing it.

  • Weighty bottom end with a lovely softness and personality at the top

    Certainly useful in more gentle scores. The low octaves have a brilliant weight to them while mid to upper octaves retain this lovely characterful olde sound with rather nice string harmonics in places.
