Kawai CN29 Digital Piano

The award-winning Kawai CN Series Digital Pianos embodies over 90 years of piano building heritage. Working alongside Onkyo, the surveyor of audio electronics, Kawai produces a new motherboard and speaker system for the CN29 and CN39. The CN Series includes six different reverb simulations, allowing pianists the flexibility to position themselves within different acoustic environments.


The Responsive Hammer III keyboard action supports players with a consistent playing experience. Triple sensor detection registers repeated notes with precision, excellent for playing rapid, soft trills. The durable reinforced action ensures stability when played with force, while the Ivory touch key surfaces aid in finger control with its matte finish. The 88-keys counterweight gives the CN Series a realistic piano touch.

The Kawai CN29 Digital Piano uses the progressive Harmonic Imaging sound engine. This allows the CN29 to emulate the incredible piano tones of the famed Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX grand pianos. The two output system performs with exceptional clarity without distortion. The Grand Pedal system of the CN29 supports the three-pedal functions: Damper, Soft, and Sostenuto. All these improvements give the CN39 a realistic acoustic piano tone.

The CN29 showcases versatility through its digital functions. The CN29 has all of the Kawai standards, such as USB capabilities, SHS headphone settings, and wireless Bluetooth MIDI. The SHS headphone jack is great for those who wish to practice privately or quietly. Programmed lesson books and songs range from Alfred books for beginner/adult beginner to Chopin Waltzes for advanced players. Metronome features included, with nineteen authentic instrument sounds. All functions are accessible through the OLED display tucked neatly into the left side panel.


With extraordinary sound quality and engaging digital functions, the CN29 exceeds all expectations. Matching bench and power cable included.

ToneThe CN29 offers a highly detailed acoustic portrait, employing Kawai’s proprietary Progressive Harmonic Imaging sampling technology to ensure smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range.




The new class-leading Responsive Hammer III keyboard action on the CN29 re-creates the exceptional touch of an acoustic grand piano with its realistic movement and rigid “springless” design working together to provide a smooth, natural piano playing experience. A triple-sensor key detection system enhances responsiveness and accuracy. 


Ivory Touch Key SurfacesThe impressive CN29 features our highly-regarded Ivory Touch key surfaces This finely-textured material gently absorbs fingertip perspiration and oils to avoid slipping and provide greater playing control. Moisture is absorbed without dirt or grease permeating the key surfaces, allowing them to be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.



CN29 Speaker Output

The new CN29 features a premium speaker and audio system developed by audio equipment specialist Onkyo delivering improved tonal clarity and superior sound. Lower-range frequencies are delivered through the underside of the instrument, while mid and high frequencies are projected outward via top-mounted speakers, closely mirroring the sound projection characteristics of an acoustic piano.


The recorder on the CN29 allows up to three songs to be stored in internal memory and played back at the touch of a button. These recordings can serve as convenient self-assessment tools for players of all skill levels.




CN Series Bluetooth

In addition to standard USB and MIDI ports, the new CN Series also boast integrated Bluetooth MIDI technology, allowing the digital piano to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly.




Concert Magic

This exclusive feature lets anyone enjoy the thrill of playing the piano, even if you’ve never played before.



Alfred Lessons

In addition to Alfred Publishing’s Basic Piano Course 1, Premier Course 1 and Adult Course 1 lessons, the new CN29 now comes with the Chopin Walzer (1-19) lessons book built in. The CN29 also includes printed music and recordings for time-tested finger exercises such as scales, arpeggios and Hanon songs.


Virtual Technician


A skilled piano technician can personalize an acoustic piano’s sound and touch response. Kawai’s exclusive Virtual Technician app does the same for the CN29 digital piano.




Grand Feel Pedal System

The CN29 features three pedals – soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). The new Grand Feel Pedal System reproduces the individual weighting of each of the three pedals of the Kawai EX concert grand.


As with a grand piano, the viewing angle of the CN29 music rest can be adjusted to suit the performer’s playing position or laid flat to provide a level surface for notating scores.
