Shigeru Kawai Grand Piano's Dual Pivot Damper System
EXCEPTIONAL CONTROL FOR DELICATE TONAL EXPRESSION
Experience the remarkable fusion of innovative design and expert craftsmanship in Shigeru Kawai grand pianos. Every element of our instruments has been meticulously crafted, embodying the needs of professional performers in each detail. A shining example of this dedication is the unique Dual Pivot Damper system, initially developed for our Shigeru Kawai Ex Concert Piano, now a fundamental component of all our grand pianos.
A piano's damper system plays a critical role in shaping its tonal expression, and in the hands of a master performer, it brings a piano's soul to life. In conventional pianos, damper control - especially during delicate half-pedal maneuvers - can often be challenging. This is where the Shigeru Kawai Dual Pivot Damper design stands apart.
Our innovative Dual Pivot Damper system introduces an unprecedented level of control, particularly during half-pedaling techniques. By incorporating a dual-pivot design, the dampers move smoothly and more efficiently, allowing for nuanced tonal variations that simply cannot be achieved with traditional systems. This offers musicians greater expressive control, enabling them to craft their sound with precision and subtlety.
Shigeru Kawai grand pianos' Dual Pivot Dampers are precision-engineered and meticulously adjusted by our master technicians, ensuring the optimal balance between the damper and the strings. This process results in dampers that respond seamlessly to the softest touch, providing a broader spectrum of tonal expression.
Moreover, the improved damper control aids in a smoother decay of sound, a critical factor in creating a rich and resonant tone. The dual-pivot design allows for a more balanced interaction between the damper and the strings, contributing to an expanded tonal palette that professionals will find indispensable in their performances.
But this innovation does not stand alone. At Shigeru Kawai, the Dual Pivot Damper design is a part of an integrated approach to piano-making, where each component works harmoniously to deliver superior sound and an unrivaled playing experience. It's just one of the many ways Shigeru Kawai continues to push the boundaries of piano innovation, drawing on our long-standing tradition of craftsmanship while embracing forward-thinking design principles.
