Introducing the Kawai CN39…
The award-winning heritage of Kawai’s CN Series Digital Pianos embodies over 90 years of piano building excellence. The design of CN39 captures the incredible piano tone of the famed Shigeru Kawai SK-EX Concert Grand Piano with stunning accuracy using Progressive Harmonic Imaging technology. The Responsive Hammer III keyboard action, considered to be among the best available today, delivers unrivaled touch response. Nestled neatly to the left of the keyboard, the OLED display offers exceptional visual clarity. Playback audio from mobile devices can connect through CN39's sound system using built-in Bluetooth, which also allows for wireless MIDI connection with other devices. With standard features like Grand Feel Pedal System, Spatial Headphone Sound selection and USB capabilities, CN39 is one of the most popular digital pianos available.

CN39 offers a highly detailed acoustic portrait, employing Kawai’s proprietary Progressive Harmonic Imaging sampling technology to ensure smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range. Harmonic Imaging is a blend of technology and techniques aimed at producing a realistic recreation of Kawai's 9-foot concert grand piano.
The class-leading Responsive Hammer III keyboard action on CN39 recreates the exceptional touch of an acoustic grand piano with its realistic movement and rigid 'springless' design working together to provide a smooth, natural piano playing experience. A triple-sensor key detection system enhances responsiveness and accuracy.
Ivory Touch key surfaces
CN29 features Kawai's highly-regarded Ivory Touch key surfaces. This finely-textured material gently absorbs fingertip perspiration and oils to avoid slipping and provide greater playing control. Moisture is absorbed without dirt or grease permeating the key surfaces, allowing them to be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Unrivaled in its class, CN39 features a premium speaker, delivering improved tonal clarity and superior sound. Lower-range frequencies are delivered through the underside of the instrument, while mid and high frequencies are projected outward via top-mounted speakers, closely mirroring the sound projection characteristics of an acoustic piano.
CN39 can record and play digital audio files using a USB memory device in either MP3 or WAV formats. Record your live playing or Internal Recorder songs or play along with your favorite recording artist. Transfer your finished MP3 to a computer for emailing to family and friends.
Complementing the Bluetooth MIDI functionality introduced on previous CN Series instruments, CN39 also supports Bluetooth Audio, allowing the audio from a smartphone or tablet to be streamed through the piano’s speakers wirelessly.
This exclusive feature lets anyone enjoy the thrill of playing the piano, even if you've never played before. Concert Magic is an intelligent, interactive system that makes playing songs incredibly simple and fun: all you need to do is tap any key and Concert Magic will take care of playing the correct notes. You get to control the song's rhythm and expression, which are the other two elements of playing music. With Concert Magic you can experience a world of musical styles: Children's Songs, Christmas Songs, American Classics, Favorite Hymns, Classical Piano Selections, Patriotic Songs, International Songs and music for Special Occasions.
The recorder on CN39 allows up to three songs to be stored in internal memory and played back at the touch of a button. This functionality is expanded with 2-track recording that allows left- and right-hand parts (or two different voices) to be recorded separately. Players can play back the left-hand part while practicing the right-hand part live – or vice versa – to strengthen hand independence.
Lessons and exercises
In addition to Alfred Publishing’s Basic Piano Course 1, Premier Course 1 and Adult Course 1 lessons, CN39 comes with the Chopin Walzer (1-19) lessons book built in. CN39 also includes printed music and recordings for time-tested finger exercises such as scales, arpeggios and Hanon songs.
A skilled piano technician can personalize an acoustic piano’s sound and touch response. Kawai’s exclusive Virtual Technician app does the same for the CN39 digital piano.
Grand Feel Pedal System
CN39 features three pedals: soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). Kawai's Grand Feel Pedal System reproduces the individual weighting of each of the three pedals of the Kawai EX concert grand piano.
Adjustable music rest
As with a grand piano, the viewing angle of CN39's music rest can be adjusted to suit the performer's playing position or laid flat to provide a level surface for notating scores.
