Kawai Acoustic Hybrids begin with our renowned grand and upright pianos that have been the choice of discerning pianists for generations. These instruments are equipped with digital technology, allowing them to operate as full-featured digital pianos that can be played silently with headphones. Dubbed the “AnyTime Pianos,” these hybrids are acoustic pianos that can be played anytime or anywhere without disturbing anyone.
In “Acoustic Mode,” AnyTime Pianos can be played in traditional fashion with full-bodied tone. In “AnyTime Mode,” the hammers never touch the strings. Instead, they activate digital components that produce our award-winning digital piano tone through headphones. Ideal for apartment living or for homes where late night or early morning practice could disturb family members or neighbors, the AnyTime Pianos are the perfect hybrid solution for aspiring pianists who need “practice time” to be anytime.
