Kawai has been crafting musical instruments for 90 years, maintaining traditional processes while embracing the very latest technical innovations. These decades of experience afford our engineers a wealth of knowledge from which to create stunning digital instruments, in a quest to perfect the art of the piano. The ES110 is the latest addition to Kawai’s highly respected series of portable digital pianos, combining our class-leading authentic keyboard action and piano sound technologies within a lightweight, affordable package.
Featuring 88 grade-weighted keys, the ES110 keyboard responds just like a real grand piano, and is therefore an ideal choice for beginners seeking a starter instrument on which to learn. However, its realistic, acoustic-like touch will also appeal to more experienced players looking for a second piano for after-hours practise, or to simply enjoy a little music away from home.
Yet, regardless of playing ability, the ES110’s rich piano sounds are guaranteed to inspire and impress, with industry-leading 88-key sampling, advanced resonance effects, and Kawai’s unique Harmonic Imaging technology delivering a realistic and highly enjoyable musical experience.
Moreover, the impressive ES110 also offers a variety of useful features to complement its authentic keyboard touch and rich grand piano sounds. The built-in lesson function, with adjustable metronome and song recorder, is an invaluable tool for aspiring pianists, while additional instrument voices, Dual and Split playing modes, and 100 drum rhythms allow players of all levels to indulge their creative spirit. Live players will appreciate dedicated Line Out jacks for sound reinforcement, while integrated Bluetooth® and standard MIDI ports ensure flexibility when connecting with smart devices, computers, and other instruments.
Available in stylish black or elegant white finishes, the compact ES110 is suitable for the lounge, bedroom, or stage. And at just 12 kilograms (26.5 lbs.), this portable instrument is light enough to be carried around the home, school, or place of worship with comfortable ease.
The new ES110: an excellent introduction to Kawai’s portable digital piano line-up at an attractive price.
Acoustic piano key weighting— Just as acoustic pianos utilise heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers, the RH Compact keyboard action also employs different hammer weights, appropriately graded for each playing range. Such realistic details provide greater stability during fortissimo passages, while preserving delicate pianissimo control, to satisfy the demands of even the most discerning pianist.
Realistic touch, natural motion— The ES110’s brand new Responsive Hammer Compact keyboard action has been developed to reproduce the distinctive touch of an acoustic grand piano. Its spring-less technology and sturdy construction delivers consistent upward and downward motion for a smooth, natural, and highly authentic piano playing experience.
True character in every note— The ES110 digital piano captures the beautiful sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed concert grand piano, with all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed and faithfully reproduced using advanced Harmonic Imaging technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand piano, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo.
CONCERT QUALITY PERFORMANCE
Reverbs, noises, & resonances— Additional reverberation effects that simulate the acoustic environment of a recital room, live stage, or concert hall are also applied, with settings to adjust voicing, sympathetic resonance, and other acoustic characteristics. The result is a rich, vibrant piano tone that delivers breathtaking realism and authenticity.
Built-in lessons— The ES110’s convenient lesson function allows aspiring pianists to study classical piano using a collection of Burgmüller etudes, or learn timehonoured standards from the popular Alfred Basic Piano course books. The left and right hand parts of each etude or song can be practised separately, with the builtin metronome and adjustable tempo controls helping to improve timing and rhythm.
Variety of sound— Supplementing its realistic acoustic piano voices, the ES110 also offers a selection of additional instrument sounds, including electric pianos, organs, strings, acoustic and electric bass, harpsichord, and vibraphone. The Dual and Split playing modes also allow two different voices, such as an acoustic piano and a string ensemble, to be played together for a more complex sound that inspires even greater musical creativity.
Line Out Jacks— Weighing just 12 kilos, the ES110 is ideal for gigging musicians looking for a portable instrument with authentic touch and high quality sounds. Dedicated Line Out jacks allow direct connection to mixers and PAs, with the ability to leave the built-in speakers enabled for use as local monitors.
Bluetooth Connectivity— In addition to standard MIDI ports, the ES110 also boasts integrated Bluetooth MIDI, allowing the instrument to communicate with smart devices wirelessly. Once paired with a phone or tablet, ES110 owners can easily expand the piano’s functions using a wide range of music apps – without the need for any extra cables or adaptors.
Optional Stand & Triple Pedals— Transform the ES110 into an ultra-compact piano replacement suitable for any room with the matching HML-1 stand and F-350 triple pedal accessories.
