PianoBroker, come on now. I have worked for Kawai for a long time now, and legs are always solid hardwood construction. MDF foam injection in a piano leg? I doubt any company would risk that - and certainly Kawai would not.

I am puzzled by this continuing topic, and can't tell if this piano just wiggles a little, which isn't too unusual, or if something is really wrong with the legs. Someone who has seen the piano needs to contact our office and talk about it. Speculation in a forum is not going to find the solution.

I received an e-mail from someone with the forum posts copied to me, but no information about what was being asked for. If Kawai is able to help, it will be by one of the technicians who has seen the piano calling to discuss the piano. Then perhaps Mark or I can give some guidance.

I’m sorry to reply to such an old thread, but I’ve bene struggling with the same issue in the past weeks. Did you solve the problem somehow?

Interesting thread. Just tried to "shake" my 140-year-old Bluthner - it's rock solid. Maybe this results from having turned legs of large diameter.

Put a finger on the upper glue joint, between the leg top section and the lower tapered section, and shake the piano. Usually that glue joint has become loose. It can be repaired by someone with woodworking experience, and it's not too expensive.
