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.
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.
