The heart of Kawai has always been in the future of the piano!  Kawai are a very established acoustic and digital piano manufacturer, based in Japan.  With their quest for perfection, Kawai’s engineers pioneered the use of state-of-the-art materials and designs that advance the piano art form. 

  • Their actions incorporate ABS Carbon, an extremely sturdy and rigid composite material that allows these action parts to be stronger, lighter, and faster than their conventional wooden counterparts.
  • Extended key lengths provide greater control and a more even response from the front to the back of the playing surface.


  • As in a grand piano action. the action of the NV10S compromises of almost 10,000 individual parts.  Each play a crucial role in allowing the performer’s finger tips to express feeling and emotion through music.
  • Extended key sticks and individually weighted ABS hammers that trigger high-resolution optical sensors give unbelievable accuracy and therefore, control over the notes played. 
  • The action approach closely reproduces the mechanical flow of an acoustic piano, and allows rapid pianissimo passages with mordents or trills to be performed with greater fluency.
  • The NV10S also retains the damper mechanism behind the keyboard action, with graded weights attached to each damper lever replicating the load of traditional wood and felt parts, as the keys and pedal are pressed.  This innovation allows pianists to not only hear how the damper pedal affects the Novus’ generated sound, but also feel the various mechanical interactions through their hands and feet.


  • The piano sound that is triggered when the hammer presses against the sensors is that of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX Concert Grand Piano.  These are world class instruments, hand-crafted with the finest materials to ensure optimum touch, tone and artistic expression.
  • In order to reproduce the stunning tonal qualities of the Shigeru Kawai concert grand piano digitally, the Novus NV10S incorporates Kawai’s latest SK-EX Rendering technology.  This advanced piano sound engine combines the well-established process of sampling with the modern approach of physical modelling, to produce a piano sound that is both rich in natural acoustic character, and dynamically responsive to the player’s musical desires.
  • Developed in collaboration with Onkyo, one of Japan’s leading premium audio equipment manufacturers, the NV10S features specialist filtering and amplification components designed for high-resolution sound reproduction.  These technologies improve tonal clarity throughout the dynamic range, while helping to preserve the unique harmonic characteristics of the Shigeru Kawai piano.
  • This high-fidelity sound is delivered through the NV10S’ powerful 7-speaker output system, which combines a large 20 cm woofer enclosed within the instrument’s base, with four premium quality top-facing mid-range drivers, and two tweeters placed behind the upper board.  The result is a remarkably authentic playing experience that immerses the performer, and faithfully reproduces the three dimensional sound field of an acoustic grand piano.


  • The Touchscreen LCD is discretely embedded within the left cheek of the NV10S – from here sounds and settings can be easily adjusted by tapping or swiping the display.
  • The screen can also fade to off whilst playing so as to preserve the Novus’ classic appearance, and minimising any visual distraction to the performer.
  • Practice in silence using the Headphone jacks.
  • Transfer music data to a computer using the MIDI or USB ports.
  • Connect wirelessly to Apps via Bluetooth MIDI.
  • Utilise the incredibly powerful speaker system to play your favourite tracks through via the Bluetooth Audio function.
  • Use the PianoRemote App on your device to change sounds or enjoy the vast array of built-in music content.

Excellent piano repair service
Read More
My piano needed a repair to the polyester finish which I was very unsure about but Andy from the repair workshop was so friendly and helpful. The quality of the finish is perfect and I couldn’t be happier. The piano was collected from my home in Devon, repaired and delivered back to me in a very quick turn around time.
