I asked this on the piano forum but haven't got much response, so thought I'd ask you techs if you know about this piano.

A friend of mine is interested in a Kawai RXA. I've never heard of them and details are scant on the net. Apparently they were the handmade forerunner to the Shigeru SK5, made in the 80's and 90's.


I was wondering if anybody has ever played one and what your impressions were? Action weight/speed, touch, tone, sustain. etc. Do they have composite actions like RX series, or wooden actions? Is there anything special about them?

Anything anyone can tell me would be great. They are almost unheard of, it seems. I don't want my friend to blow his money.

I just tuned two of these. The customer had TWO! He belongs to the "Two Pianos Group" here in Port Charlotte, FL and frequently practices with a partner for upcoming performances. These are amazing instruments. Both tone and touch. The touch IMPROVES with time. Good luck!
