Tony any patent they had would be long expired by now. But I don't believe they ever had a patent on this stuff.

Yamaha vs. Kawai; is any comparison made more often?
Myself, I had a clear preference for Yamaha - sound, feel, looks, etc. Others make the opposite choice, for the same reasons. What's best for you? Only your hairdresser knows for sure.

I have had baby grands of both and liked them both. The Kawai was mellower in tone and the Yamaha more bright. But each piano is different and it depends on what you like. Play many, then select.

Agreed: not on the material itself.

Otherwise, the manufacturers of all sorts of injection-moulded rubber-toughened thermoplastics (crash helmets, car bumpers, protective cases, pipes and even Lego blocks) would have to pay royalties to Kawai. Somehow, I doubt that.;)
