NEOTEX key surface with extended length
The exclusive NEOTEX key surface material combined with the cellulose fibre offers the smooth and understated texture of natural ivory and ebony. This creates a semiporous, silica-filled surface to absorb the hands natural oils, reducing the possibility of slipping. NEOTEX also resists cracking and fading, allowing for years of use and a sustained consistent feel across the entire keyboard.
The longer keys provide an even response from the front to the back of the playing surface, meaning you can play with more control, power and projection, all with great ease.
In other pianos, the keyslip simply consists of a long, thin piece of wood which is liable to warp and bend with changes in humidity. However, to eliminate this problem, the Kawai K-700 contains a heavy-gauge steel angle iron, allowing keys to move more freely with virtually no possibility of rubbing or sticking against the keyslip.
