Kawai Acoustic Hybrids begin with Kawai’s renowned grand and upright pianos that are equipped with digital technology, allowing them to operate as full-featured digital pianos that can be played silently with headphones. Dubbed the “AnyTime Pianos,” these hybrids are acoustic pianos that can be played anytime or anywhere without disturbing anyone.
In “Acoustic Mode,” AnyTime Pianos can be played in traditional fashion with full-bodied tone. In “AnyTime Mode,” the hammers never touch the strings. Instead, they activate digital components that produce Kawai’s award-winning digital piano tone through headphones. Ideal for apartment living or for homes where late night or early morning practice could disturb family members or neighbors, the AnyTime Pianos are the perfect hybrid solution for aspiring pianists who need “practice time” to be anytime.
Available models: K200-ATX3 and GL30-ATX2.

With the Kawai CS11, great digital features merge with acoustic piano characteristics to create a beautiful and incredibly capable hybrid instrument. Part of the appeal of the CS11 comes from its stunning ebony polished cabinet… the same one used with Kawai’s K-200 Professional Upright Piano. A traditional leg and toe block design along with a classic fallboard evoke timeless tradition. The finish is made with durable polyester, the same material used in Kawai’s acoustic piano finishes.
