KAWAI'S EXCLUSIVE SHIKO SEION HAMMERS
Shiko Seion hammers are made and voiced entirely by our Master Piano Artisans with a select blend of New Zealand and Australian long-fiber wool. They are hand-pressed, reinforced and formed without artificial hardeners to deliver unmatched dynamics and expression for the artist.
Welcome to the world of Shiko Seion Hammers, a testament to the ultimate expression of tonal perfection, crafted with an unwavering dedication to the finest of details. Deriving its name from the Japanese words signifying "ultimate voicing," each Shiko Seion Hammer carries within it a promise of unparalleled sound.
Created exclusively by our Master Piano Artisans from a select blend of New Zealand and Australian long-fiber wool, the Shiko Seion Hammers embody the perfect blend of tradition, technique, and artistry. Our artisans take immense pride in their creation, imbuing each hammer with their passion, skill, and years of experience.
HONORING THE MATERIALS
Defying conventional methods, our process shuns the use of heat or artificial hardeners. Instead, we champion an organic approach. Each Shiko Seion Hammer is hand-pressed and voiced, honoring the natural properties of the material and respecting the sanctity of the sound it is designed to produce.
The culmination of this careful process creates a unique tonal quality – a well-balanced tone that sings with clarity and warmth. It brings forth the full richness of each note, offering an acoustic experience that is at once delicate and powerful.
