Although a relatively small piano, the superb design of the K-2 gives it a very complex and expressive tone, with an excellent base register.
The K-3 is arguably the best piano in its class. It has won the Acoustic Piano of the Year Award in 2008, 2009 and 2010. It has a precise and very controllable touch with a clear and powerful tone. This piano is extremely versatile and will meet the highest expectations of home or professional pianists.
At 132cm the K-6 is rated as a professional level upright. It includes features from grand piano design, for example, aggraffes and a treble duplex scaling. Given the size of the piano it is a viable alternative to a baby grand.
