ES8

A portable powerhouse, ES8 is made for the road, with everything you need to take on the next gig – including Kawai’s trademark tones and expressive touch.

Why ES8?

Simplicity with deep control. Fine-tune your perfect piano sound with dozens of powerful Virtual Technician controls, set splits, zones and layers, record, playback and much more, all from a clean, simple panel.

ES8 features one of the most sophisticated action mechanisms we’ve ever created: Responsive Hammer 3. With triple sensor key detection, counterweights, let-off simulation and many more features derived straight from our legendary grand pianos, ES8 is designed to make your fingers sing.

With a focus on versatility, ES8 includes our SK-EX concert grand, EX and SK-5, plus dozens of legendary electric pianos, string, synths and other sounds, all tied together with our silky smooth HI-XL sound engine.

Deceptively big speaker sound, plus connectivity options for the stage, rugged steel chassis, RH3 action – every part of ES8 is designed to the highest standards, and built tough enough to get there, work hard, and get home in one piece.
