KONSEI KATAGI RIM
A PERFECT BALANCE OF SMALL PORE AND LARGE PORE WOODS
The Konsei Katagi rim is made from a unique combination of distinct hardwoods that provide an exceptional balance of tone. Small-pore hardwoods with excellent brightness and projection characteristics are blended together with dense, large pore woods for warmth and fullness This combination of structurally different hardwoods has become the hallmark of Shigeru pianos and their wonderfully euphonious tonality.
Unlike many other manufacturers, Kawai’s rim production method prevents unnecessary stretching and compressing of the wood fibers in the material to make for the amazing tonal characteristics that the Shigeru Kawai piano has become well known for.
