Introducing the Kawai ES-120 portable digital piano

The latest addition to the highly respected ES range, the ultra-portable ES120 features an improved Responsive Hammer Compact keyboard action, beautiful Shigeru Kawai grand piano sounds, and built-in Bluetooth® MIDI and Audio connectivity, delivering gig-friendly grand piano touch and tone at a remarkably affordable price.

These stylish instruments are ideally suited to musicians seeking a piano that provides an authentic keyboard action and a selection of inspiring sounds, yet can still be moved easily, or placed on an attractive furniture stand without occupying too much space.

The ES-120 is also an excellent choice for gigging musicians, academic institutions, and places of worship, thanks to their lightweight body, powerful speaker systems, and great audio connectivity. And with a slew of customisable settings, Bluetooth MIDI and audio, and engaging apps, the ES Series instruments are also extremely personal pianos, that players of all ages and abilities can take pride in owning.

Plays like a grand piano

The ES120’s Responsive Hammer Compact keyboard action has been specially developed to allow portable instruments to reproduce the distinctive touch of an acoustic grand piano. Based on the highly-regarded RH action design, its spring-less technology and sturdy construction delivers consistent upward and downward motion, while improved cushioning material helps to reduce keyboard noise, resulting in a smooth, natural, and highly authentic piano playing experience.

Sounds like a grand piano

The ES-120 captures the magnificent tone of the flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano. In addition, the ES-120 also features the distinctive sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which has been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others.

Both the SK-EX and EX are faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using advanced Progressive Harmonic Imaging™ sound technology, to establish a new standard in digital piano tonal quality, and allow musicians to appreciate the contrasting properties of each.

Adding more to your sound

Alongside the classically voiced SK-EX and EX grand piano sounds, the ES120 also showcases a selection of Jazz, Pop, and Modern variations suitable for a range of musical genres. In addition, the ES120’s powerful digital effects engine further enhances the instrument’s core sounds, applying reverberation effects that simulate the acoustics of a recital room, live stage, concert hall, and other environments, bringing performances to life.

Make yourself heard (or not!)

The ES120’s stereo speaker system delivers an impressive 20W of output, providing enough power to fill a medium-sized room with it's beautiful Shigeru Kawai grand piano sounds. And when you want to play through speakers at a reduced volume, the ES120’s Low Volume Balance feature intelligently adjusts keyboard touch and piano tone characteristics, allowing pianissimo passages to be played smoothly and more naturally.

Variety and flexibility

The adjustable metronome and song recorder are invaluable tools for aspiring pianists wishing to improve the technique, while additional instrument voices, Dual and Split playing modes, and 100 drum rhythms allow players of all levels to indulge their creative spirit.

Live players will appreciate Registration memories and dedicated Line Out jacks for sound reinforcement, while integrated Bluetooth® MIDI and Audio, and a standard USB-MIDI port provide flexibility for connecting to smart devices and computers – either with, or without cables.

Integrated Bluetooth connectivity

Once paired with a phone, tablet, or laptop, ES120 owners can enjoy a wide variety of exciting music-related apps that enhance their learning and playing experience, or stream audio from songs and videos directly through the instrument’s impressive speaker system without the need to connect additional cables.

The PianoRemote app

The ES120 is compatible with Kawai’s latest PianoRemote control app for iOS and supported Android devices. This app connects to the piano wirelessly via the instrument’s integrated Bluetooth feature, providing an effortless way to change sounds or adjust settings from an attractive user interface.

Great for gigging

Lightweight and compact, the ES120 is ideal for gigging musicians looking for a portable piano with authentic touch and high quality sounds. Registration memories provide a quick and easy way to recall adjusted sounds and settings, while the dedicated stereo Line Out jacks allow direct connection to mixers and PAs, with the ability to also leave the instrument's built-in speakers enabled for use as local monitors.

Optional fixed stand and pedal board

Available to purchase in addition to the ES-120 portable digital piano is the HML-2 fixed designer stand and the F-351 triple pedal board. Crafted from wood, The HML-2 is the ideal solution for ES120 owners seeking a modern, attractive alternative to uninviting keyboard stands. And the pedal board replicates the damper, soft, and sostenuto functionality of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX Concert grand piano, further enhancing the ES120's acoustic piano-like authenticity. Both are available in matching black or white finishes.
