Kawai MP Series
Kawai MP11SE Stage Piano Overview!
The flagship Kawai MP11SE piano is unique in that it features the very best grand feel wooden key action with ivory feel key surfaces, long key-length, simulated hammers, and a pivot-point (fulcrum) in the correct place to give an authentic grand piano experience. The MP11SE builds on it�s popular MP11 predecessor with the addition of high quality Shigeru Kawai Concert Grand piano samples, upgraded GFP3 grand-feel triple piano pedal, and a new premium case design with high-gloss polished ebony end cheeks.
We LOVE This Piano!
Other manufacturers may have great sounding instruments, but the MP11-SE delivers a pro-quality sound with undoubtedly the best keyboard feel of any stage/studio piano currently on the market. Weighing in at 34kg, it�s pretty heavy, but this is simply because it contains the closest replica of a traditional wooden acoustic piano keyboard in any �portable� instrument. Many experienced players will confirm that the keyboard feel is just as important (sometimes more important) than the piano sound, which is why the MP11 series has proven to be a Worldwide success for Kawai.
The Kawai MP11SE deserves to be at the heart of your studio or on-stage rig, and we would advise you to come and try the MP11-SE in our specialist keyboard centres for yourself � you won�t want to stop playing it!
At Bonners we LOVE this piano, and we invite to you try the MP11SE in our stores which are in Surrey (Reigate) and Sussex (Eastbourne). Call for current in-store availability of this instrument before visiting.
The Very Best Acoustic & E.P Piano SoundsKawai are manufacturers of extremely high quality concert grand pianos. They have meticulously sampled every single one of the 88 notes of their flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX instrument for the MP11SE and the result is absolutely stunning. The Shigeru SK-EX sound is responsive and expressive, as well as being powerful and bold when required. The combination of the wooden Grand Feel key action along with the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX piano sound means it�s easy to lose yourself for hours when playing the MP11SE � the same experience you would get from playing a high-end acoustic grand.
In addition to the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX piano voice, the MP11SE is equipped with the sound of two other popular Kawai acoustic pianos � the SK5 (a studio size grand piano which is ideal for pop and jazz styles), as well as the Kawai EX concert grand sound which gives a brighter tone than the Shigeru Kawai sample.
There are multiple samples of various vintage electric pianos including Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzers and even modern FM ballad pianos. These can all be customised using the virtual technician feature, and effects can be applied such as chorus and amp simulator to give an authentic vintage sound.
40 Sounds In TotalAll the important keyboard sounds are present and correct in the MP11SE, including acoustic pianos, electric pianos, clavs, harpsichords, synth pads, orchestral strings and more. The MP11SE does not have solo instrument sounds (such as sax, flute & brass) because all the focus is on the piano & keyboard tones. The synth pads, choirs and string sounds provide excellent layer options and it�s possible to create some really lush textures that will inspire you to play and play and play!
