In the late 1980s, Steinway got a clue that not everyone could afford an ultra-expensive American or German-made piano. In 1991, they chose a company in Japan known for producing warm melodic sounding pianos, which are terribly consistent and durable. That company is Kawai. Since 1927 Kawai has constructed some of the finest pianos the world has ever seen.
Like any specialist such as an ophthalmologist, cardiologist, neurologist, etc., Kawai is, and has been a piano-building specialist for nearly 100 years! They do not allow themselves to be distracted by the production of motorcycles, outboard boat motors, or band instruments.
Kawai’s uncompromising approach to quality of materials and attention to detail are likely among the chief reasons why Steinway selected them to build their entire Boston piano series. A 30+ year relationship still going strong today, which has proven equally beneficial for both Steinway and Kawai.
