Millennium III Action featuring ABS Carbon Action Parts

Most of our Grand Pianos now feature the Millennium III Action. This Action has been well accepted, as you can see from our success in many of the International Piano Competitions throughout the world. Next, our efforts were put into developing the Millennium III action for Upright Piano. The result is a strong, precise and powerfull action for the new “K-Series” models.

The Millennium III Action features components made of ABS-Carbon, a new composite material created by the infusion of carbon into our existing ABS Styran. ABS-Carbon is incredibly sturdy and rigid, which allowed Kawai to make the action parts lighter without sacrificing strength. The lighter design makes the Millennium III Action tremendously fast and effortless for the player. The repetition and responsiveness are superb.Every exacting detail of the action was exhaustively analysed to meet the stringent demands of the skilled pianist. One prime example of this effort was the addition of a microscopic surface texture on the jack at the point where it meets the hammer. The result of this subtle but important change is a dramatic increase in control during pianissimo playing.

  • “Soft Fall” Fallboard
  • Fallboard closing system that protects hands, fingers and the pianos finish from the harm that a jarring close may cause.
  • Non-lead weighted Keys
  • “We care about our world”. We have changed the weight used in keys from lead to iron.

NEOTEX™ Key Surfaces

NEOTEX offers the smooth, understated texture of natural ivory and ebony … and a semiporous silica-filled surface to absorb the hand’s natural oils and perspiration. It resists cracking and fading over years of use … and is static-resistant to prevent the build-up of unwanted dust. The result is a beautiful, long lasting key surface with exceptional playability.

Mahogany Hammer Moulding

Mahogany is a superior choice for hammer mouldings because of its high ratio strength to weight. Mahogany hammers are light-weight and extremely responsive.

Duplex Scale

The duplex scale enhances harmonics in the treble range adding brilliancraffe and richness to the piano’s tone.

Tonal Release

Boosts volume and improves tonal projection. The openings are inserted in the upper panel mouldings and in the lower panel.
