That's a very competitive price, especially if you're buying from a local independent dealer.

Assuming you've played-tested the instrument and enjoy its touch, tone, and features, I'd say go for it!

Cheers,
James

Yes, that's a great deal from a local dealer. Thomann is a few quid cheaper, but it's not worth the hassle of ordering online and dealing with warranty back in Germany etc.

Please post a pic and a mini-review when receive it.

Best of luck!

Cheers,
James

If its a local dealer I guess they're (more or less) price-matching Thomann.

An Australian dealer tells me that Kawai are about to release the CA 65, which may explain the prices on offer and the low stock in Australia.

Perhaps Kawai James could confirm this?

Sorry chaps, but I'm afraid I cannot comment on instruments until they have been formally announced.

That is a good price. I was quoted $2900, which is about £1800. And in my opinion Kawai is the best one out there, specially when it comes to touch. Some say Roland has better sound, but I don't think so. As long as you love it though, that's what matters

Recieved my Kawai CA-63 last night, delivered and setup by keysound.co.uk. Very pleased now I have to learn how to play it properly.

Well done, did you use the Thomann price to beat them down, as their website says c. £1,950

Yes I asked if they would match the price. As I was local to the sore they agreed to do it for the same price. Very happy with the piano I am experimenting with the sound setup but a realy nice piano to play.
