Hi all,

Just thought I'd post that Adorama.com has a temporary price drop on the Kawai ES8 (black or white) for $1199 with free shipping (no sales tax for me in Texas)... Great price for anybody in the market!... Cheers!

Wow, that is a good deal.

...and no, the ES8 is not being discontinued any time soon.

Thanks for the heads up Go Lobos! I think my local store will price match any legit quotes. (I prefer to support the local store since I am in there testing these things). I had been deciding between the Kawaii ES8, Yamaha P515, and Roland FP90. I was having a terrible time deciding, narrowed it down to preferring the Kawaii just enough more to maybe choose it, then found out how LONG it had been out. (New back to looking at the DP world). So it had me wondering if I should wait for an ES9, but I can see no one knows for sure when it would be coming out. This is enough of a discount to feel safe I believe, but I would still hate to jump and have a replacement come out this summer or fall---

Just out of curiosity does anyone recall the original selling prices?

Sweetwater is quoting $1649 for the "bare" ES8 -- single sustain pedal (w/ half-damper), no bench, no stand.

I saw that in the prices paid thread and literally thought "Holy smokes!" too. I'm thinking it's a one-off, cause if $1200 is the new normal, that'd be bad news for the ES110, let alone the ES8's competitor brands.

And again, props to Kawai James for giving us a little insight into the Kawai product release timeline wink It's refreshing not to get Glomar'd by a company with every single question!
