Hi,

I'm new to the forum and would need some help. I'm looking to purchase a used piano for my son who is just starting to learn. In my search, I ran across 2 models: KU-10 (48'), KU-20 (just a bit taller); both roughly about 10 years old based on their serial numbers. Can anyone help put these models into perspective? Are they similar to the new K3? And the diff between the 2 is just the height? Any idea how much these sold for when new (just to compare the asking price of about US$3300 KU-10/US$3500 KU-20)

Greatly appreciate any assistance!

I've had a couple preowned KU10(s)in the past. I believe they are gray market exclucive. They are newer as for vintage compared to most gray market Yamaha and Kawai(s)imported into the states. they are not of Kawai's artist quality level though they were manufactured in the Japanese factory. They are compareable to the nongray market Kawai CX21D which had the one piece top and a compromised cabinet structure. The ones I had were equiped with the Kawai Anytime silent system. Not bad but not one of Kawai's top of the line quality uprts. wink
