What Is A Hybrid Piano?
A Hybrid Piano usually refers to a digital piano that has the keyboard action and mechanism taken from a traditional acoustic piano. This results in a more authentic touch and musical experience for the player when comapred with traditional digital-only pianos. The sound is generated electronically, so Hybrid pianos never require tuning and the other regular maintenance associated with acoustic pianos.
Hybrid pianos such as the Kawai Novus NV10 allow the use of headphones for the times when you want ot practice without disturbing other people in the household or neighbouring properties.
Quite simply, the Novus NV10 gives you all the benfits of a digital piano, whilst retaining the delicate, responsive touch of a traditional acoustic grand.
Keyboard Action, Hammers & Dampers
The felt hammers in the NV10's action have been replaced with ABS equivalents, and are individually graded in weight form the bass register to the treble, resulting in long-lasting reliability without compromising performance.
Optical sensors take the place of the piano strings, and accurately measure the velocity and speed of the hammer movements to give a ensure a natural response is achieved by the performing musician.
The NV10 is the first Hybrid piano from any manufacturer to feature a real grand piano damper mechanism. Although there are no strings in the NV10, the inclusion of traditional felt dampers reproduces the weighting of a grand piano sustain pedal, and also eases the keyboard's resistance when the pedal is pressed. This particular feature is unique to the Kawai NOVUS NV10 and has not been included in hybrid pianos from other manufacturers.
The NOVUS NV10 features the sound of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano. This particular piano is one of the finest grand pianos in the World, and is authentically recreated in the NV10. This piano sound is used in other high-performance Kawai digital pianos, but in the NOVUS NV10, it is further enhanced by 1-bit processing, premium dual DACs, and DIDRC filter and amplification technology powered by Japan’s leading high-end audio manufacturer, Onkyo.
Quite simply, there is no other digital grand piano avialable that has the specification or performance of the Novus NV10.
More information will be released throughout the summer of 2017, with shipping expected Oct-Dec 2017
