Built in 1992 in Japan. Really nice Kawai 48" Ebony Polish Upright. A Kawai CX-2D is a popular model for those in need of volume a full sound, all at an affordable price. If you're considering a Yamaha U1 but find the tone a bit bright then the Kawai pianos should be a perfect choice for you. It's comparable to today's K3 model and offers terrific bang for your cash. This hugely successful instrument is 122 cm tall, giving you great power and sound control.
