Hi there

I'm currently considering purchasing the Kawai ES-7 with the F-301 3 pedal unit.

Does anyone know if I can use an X stand with this set up or does the F-301 require the HM-4 piano stand?

I've seen two ES-7 bundles which I'm trying to weigh up. One bundle is the ES-7 with the HM-4 piano stand and the F-301 pedal unit. The other is the ES-7 with the Kawai soft case. While I really like the look of the DP on the HM-4, as I am planning on using the DP for occasional gigging, I'm thinking it might make better sense to get the soft case bundle and buy the pedal unit along with an X stand separately.

My thoughts would be just buy the ES7 and the sustain pedal that comes with it, if you intend gigging, My experience is a platform folding stand is far more stable. Of all the different digital pianos with built in speakers that I have owned over time, the ES7 is by far the best....my only major complaint is that you have to stop playing to transpose, unlike Technics, and most Yamaha which have a two button one up/one down function.

I have the ES7 with the furniture stand and the 3-pedal unit. I removed the 3-pedal unit and just use the sustain pedal that comes with the ES7. I did that because, in my opinion, the 3-pedal unit attaches in a position which is too near to the front of the piano. I cannot find a relaxed position for my ankle when using the 3-pedal unit.

Now ... having said that ...

The 3-pedal unit attaches to the furniture stand so you could not use it without the furniture stand.

Check out Ebay Item No300441522317 to see the platform style stand....more stable and leg room to operate sustain pedal
