Bai Liping, the CL36 utilises the RH action and is also relatively compact.

However I do not believe this model is available in China.

Kind regards,
James

Just out of curiosity, why this model is not sold in China? Is that a restriction from the company side or the dealers decided not to import this?

I'm afraid I do not know. This decision is made by Kawai's Chinese subsidiary in Shanghai.

For more information please use the contact form below:

I am very happy with my CL-36. If all you need is very nice action/sound in compact design and don't need thousands of other functions, I can strongly recommend. For 800€ I paid, nothing can beat it.

Just curiosity, I am wondering:
1- There are some local Digital Piano makers in China. How Chinese Kawai can compete with them? Does Kawai offer lower prices for better quality?
2- Does anyone see any Chinese Digital Pianos being sold in the US? If not, why?
3- General discussion: how about American digital Piano makers doing business in China, and how Chinese digital piano makers doing business in the US?
