Kawai ES8 Portable Piano Custom Package; Black

The Kawai ES8 is one of the best portable pianos on the market - a beautiful sound, realistic touch and plenty more sounds for all styles of music. The built-in speaker system is excellent and ideal for small band/choir rehearsals and more than enough for practice at home.

Packaged With Everything You Need From Bonners Music

This Kawai ES8 "custom`22; package is ideal for the best quality accessories to go with their piano. The keyboard stand is sturdier than the one supplied with our value package. The keyboard seat is larger, and can be set at a higher playing position, and the deluxe carry bag has 18mm thick padding. To top it off, we've included the Yamaha HPH50 headphones to compliment your piano. Included in this Kawai ES8 Package are the following items:

  • Kawai ES8 Black Piano Keyboard
  • Music Rest
  • Piano Sustain Pedal (metal)
  • Premium Quality Double Braced Metal XX Stand
  • Premium Quality Adjustable Height Keyboard Seat
  • Yamaha HPH50 Headphones
  • Deluxe Carry bag with 18mm padding all round
  • Power supply

The new Responsive Hammer III (RHIII) action recreates the distinctive touch of an acoustic piano, with its realistic movement and accurate 3-sensor technology providing a smooth, natural, and responsive playing experience. The weight of the keyboard is graded to mirror the heavier bass and lighter treble hammers of an acoustic piano, while reinforcements within the assembly ensure stability during fortissimo and staccato passages. The ES8 digital piano also features Kawai’s Ivory Touch key surfaces that gently absorb finger moisture to assist the player’s performance, while let-off simulation recreates the subtle ‘notch’ sensation felt when softly playing the keys of a grand piano, satisfying the expectations of the discerning pianist.

Shigeru Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, and Kawai EX instruments reproduced with Harmonic Imaging XL sound technology

The ES8 digital piano captures the rich, expressive sound of the Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, and EX grand pianos, with all 88 keys of these exceptional instruments meticulously recorded, analysed and reproduced using Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound technology. This process accurately recreates the dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an excellent level of expression ranging from the softest pianissimo to the boldest fortissimo. The instrument’s built-in Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of these acoustic sounds to be shaped at the touch of a button, with settings to adjust string and damper resonance, in addition to subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. This personalised sound is enhanced with reverberation effects, delivering a vibrant tone with breathtaking realism.

Strong selection of additional instrument sounds

The ES8 features a strong selection of additional instrument sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar and church organs, to string, choir, and mallet instruments. Furthermore, the Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two sections. The volume balances for each playing mode can be adjusted quickly and easily using the real-time panel controls.

Professional accompaniment styles

Featuring a variety of styles ranging from pop and rock ballads, to jazz-funk, dance, and latin flavours, the Rhythm Section function of the ES8 provides solo performers with professionally arranged accompaniment at the touch of a button. In addition, the 100 preset chord progressions and One Finger Ad-lib™ solo phrases allow musicians to breathe life into their repertoire, while maintaining control over each performance.

USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback

The ES8 is equipped with USB to connect to a computer for MIDI use, and load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This USB to Device feature allows registration memories and songs recorded and stored in internal memory to be saved to USB, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware. USB memory devices can be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn a new piece, or simply play along with their favourite songs. It also saves performances as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on a smartphone, or further editing using an audio workstation.

Responsive Hammer III’ weighted-key action, with Ivory Touch key surfaces and Let-off simulation

The new Responsive Hammer III (RHIII) action recreates the distinctive touch of an acoustic piano, with its realistic movement and accurate 3-sensor technology providing a smooth, natural, and responsive playing experience. The weight of the keyboard is graded to mirror the heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers of an acoustic piano, while structural reinforcements within the assembly ensure stability during fortissimo and staccato passages. The ES8 digital piano also features Kawai’s Ivory Touch key surfaces that gently absorb finger moisture to assist the player’s performance, while let-off simulation recreates the subtle ‘notch’ sensation felt when softly playing the keys of a grand piano, satisfying the expectations of the most discerning pianist.

Shigeru Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, and Kawai EX instruments reproduced with Harmonic Imaging XL sound technology

The ES8 digital piano captures the rich, expressive sound of the Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, and EX grand pianos, with all 88 keys of these exceptional instruments meticulously recorded, analysed and reproduced using Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound technology. This process accurately recreates the dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an excellent level of expression ranging from the softest pianissimo to the boldest fortissimo. The instrument’s built-in Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of these acoustic sounds to be shaped at the touch of a button, with settings to adjust string and damper resonance, in addition to subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. This personalised sound is enhanced with reverberation effects, delivering a vibrant piano tone with breathtaking realism.

Strong selection of additional instrument sounds

The ES8 also features a strong selection of additional instrument sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar and church organs, to string, choir, and mallet instruments. Furthermore, the Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two sections. The volume balances for each playing mode can also be adjusted quickly and easily using the real-time panel controls.

Professional accompaniment styles

Featuring a variety of styles ranging from pop and rock ballads, to jazz-funk, dance, and latin flavours, the Rhythm Section function of the ES8 provides solo performers with professionally arranged accompaniment at the touch of a button. In addition, the 100 preset chord progressions and One Finger Ad-lib™ solo phrases allow musicians to breathe life into their repertoire, while maintaining control over each performance.

USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback

The ES8 is equipped with USB connectors that allow connection to a computer for MIDI use, and load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This USB to Device feature allows registration memories and songs recorded and stored in internal memory to be saved to USB, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware. USB memory devices can be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn a new piece, or simply play along with their favourite songs. It also saves performances as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on a smartphone, or further editing using an audio workstation.
