Hi all,
I am looking into a Kawai KL703 which was made in Japan. It's rarely seen in Australia so I just wonder if there is anything wrong with dampers or hammers.... Is this easy or difficult to replace/ fix them?
Are all dampers/ hammers the same for all Kawai models?

Thanks for your advice.

Alice,

In general, they probably are pretty much the same though larger instruments will tend to have larger/longer dampers, and to some extent larger hammers (but not a lot larger).

It's pretty difficult to tell much of anything about a piano unless we can see it's parts and how much wear might be on them. The deeper the grooves in the hammers from hitting the strings, the more usage it has received.

Are you able to get any pics of the inside?
