A quick first post to say that after lurking for a while reading this forum and playing as many pianos I could get my fingers on over the past month or two my new Kawai CN-43 has been ordered and will arrive on my 30th birthday next month as a present from friends and family.

4 long weeks to wait...

Hi,

I found out by chance that baby tissues (the ones you use to clean their bottom) can be very good for cleaning my piano keys.

They come already damp from the packet, and I guess they are made of some kind of microfiber.

Ciao,
Paolo

Sorry if this has already been answered, but is the CN33 always sold with a bench ? I just bought this model (the one shown in store) in Austria, and it doesn't come with a bench.

Only if the store includes it as part of the deal.

Congrats on your purchase. Any chance of pics?

spannishbuddha : Thanks for the answer. I had a doubt because in the french and english user manual, in the "safety instructions" chapter, there is a mention of a bench ("the chair must be used properly, do not play with it or stand on it", etc.), but not in the german user manual, so I thought maybe the piano is delivered by Kawai with a bench only in some countries.
I'll definately upload some pictures when I can (I'm on vacation on a very slow connection).

Kawai Cn-33 is a fantastic instrument. Congrats to all owners.

Some day I'll get one. But I prefer the compact size of CN-23. I'm not sure.

As we are all Kawai owners, lovers, fanatics, or, "want to be" owners, lovers, fanatics, on this thread I thought some UK residents may be interested in getting one of these T SHIRTS.

Gosh, that is bloody horrible!
Who on earth is making these things?

If folks are really keen on acquiring a Kawai t-shirt, I'm sure they can contact the chaps at Kawai's overseas offices and receive the official version.

Personally, I've got one of these on order:



Cheers,

Hi James, Are the official Kawai T Shirts Free? I'd bet Gyro has one of those Williams shirts.

bluebilly, I'm not sure to be honest. I believe they're typically used by staff at sales events/exhibitions etc., however I expect the KUK chaps would be prepared to make them available to Kawai customers...perhaps for a small fee?

Cheers,
James

Hello guys,

May I introduce you my new CN33 =D :





Got it delivered last friday. I'm very happy with it. I want to thank all of you who helped me with buying the CN33.
Now I got one question:
Are there any downloads for the CN33 ,like extra sounds etc. ?

Kind regards,

Nashwan

Yay, congratulations NSA.

Interesting that the trim at the front of the fallboard looks metallic and different to mine. Mine is the same colour as the rest.

I don't know of any sound updates, but there is a firmware download available at http://www.kawai.de/downloads_de.htm , although I expect yours is already at the latest level.

I've chosen the satin black version, as it fits with the room. I think you got the rosewood finish? Well, it was a whole job to lift the 73kg heavy box up the stairs, but the endresult is great!

Kind regards,

Nashwan

I am thinking of getting a CN33. Around my area (metro Atlanta, US), dealers ask for $2200, which is the same as the price on Kawai's web store. Does anybody know a place (internet or local) where I can get a better deal? I am looking for $1800 or less, according to the price paid thread.

Ditto!

Also, for NSA: where did you get that cool adjustable bench?

Copperx, the set I bought included this bench and headphones. I think the mark of the bench was Stagg. According to the store owner the value of the bench was €150,-. That's quite much, but it's a high quality bench.

Kind regards,

Nashwan

I know it's not a CN-33 but my CN-43 arrived yesterday after too long a wait. I hope I can still be part of the club? It was after all you guys that got me looking at Kawai pianos in the first place. smile

As an aside (and happy to take it to a different topic if need be) does anyone know what the current firmware version for the CN-43 is? And how to check it?

Congrats Simma on your CN43. On the CN33 you can see the firmware version by pressing and holding down buttons: piano2, drawbar, harps&mallets, then turning it on. I don't know if this is the same for the 43. Maybe the 43 is too new to need a firmware update.

Congrats Simma!

As spanishbuddha notes, there have not been any firmware updates released for the CN43 yet.

Cheers,

Hi,

I have my CN-33 for many months now, and I really love it. But there's one thing that I don't like: For my taste, the E-Pianos need a very light touch response (LT2), the dark acoustic Piano (variation 3 of the 1st preset) is best with LT1, and the brighter pianos need normal touch sensitivity.
It's grea to *have* that choice in the fist place. But why can't I store it? I would like to store the touch respose, just as I can store the FX setting, individually for each preset.

I guess I'm not the only one who would love to have this - maybe it's part of a firmware update?

Kind Regards,

JH.

Yes this is handy as well as aesthetic. I practise with the cover hiding the controls to avoid ingraining any visual clues.

Guys, I need some help:

Today I had the plan to record a song on the CN33 and save it on my usb-stick and then save it on my laptop. But the sound quality is so bad.. It doesn't sound like a piano...
Is there any program to solve this problem?

Regards,

Nashwan

NSA, I assume you are playing the MIDI file saved by the CN33 on your computer. On Windows, the default MIDI playback sounds are not very authentic, therefore I suggest using a dedicated software piano such as Pianoteq to 'render' the .MID file to a .WAV.

Kind regards,
James

Thanks for the reply. So when I install pianoteq, will the notes sound 'normal'?
And is pianoteq for free?

Kind regards,

Nashwan

Well, the notes will sound like Pianoteq - a modelled software piano.

Pianoteq can be downloaded for free trial from www.pianoteq.com, however there are two important restrictions:

- 8 notes are disabled (silent): F#1, G#1, A#1, C#5, D#5, F#5, G#5 and A#5.
- Must be restarted after 20 minutes.

Kind regards,
James
