Realistic touch, natural motion
ES100’s Advanced Hammer Action IV-F (AHA IV-F) keyboard action has been developed to represent the distinctive touch of an acoustic grand piano. Its springless technology and sturdy construction delivers consistent upward and downward motion for a smooth, natural, and highly authentic piano playing experience.
Acoustic piano key weighting
Just as acoustic pianos utilise heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers, the AHA IV-F keyboard action also employs different hammer weights, appropriately graded for each playing range. Such realistic details provide greater stability during fortissimo passages, while preserving delicate pianissimo control, to satisfy the demands of even the most discerning pianist.
True character in every note
The ES100 digital piano captures the beautiful sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed concert grand piano, with all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed and faithfully reproduced using advanced Harmonic Imaging technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand piano, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the
strongest, boldest fortissimo.
Reverb and resonance
Additional reverberation effects that simulate the acoustic environment of a recital room, live stage, or concert hall are also applied, with settings to adjust voicing, sympathetic resonance, and other acoustic characteristics. The result is a rich, vibrant piano tone that delivers breathtaking realism and authenticity
The ES100’s convenient lesson function allows aspiring pianists to study classical piano using a collection of Burgmüller etudes, or learn time honoured standards from the popular Alfred Basic Piano course books. The left and right hand parts of each etude or song can be practised separately, with the built-in metronome and adjustable tempo controls helping to improve timing and rhythm.
Variety of sound
Supplementing its realistic acoustic piano voices, the ES100 also offers a selection of additional instrument sounds, including electric pianos, organs, strings, acoustic and electric bass, harpsichord, and vibraphone. The Dual and Split playing modes also allow two diﬀerent voices, such as an acoustic piano and a string ensemble, to be played together for a more complex sound that inspires even greater musical creativity.
Optional stand and triple pedal
Transform the ES100 into an ultra-compact piano replacement suitable for any room with the matching HML-1 stand and F-350 triple pedal accessories.
