The Kawai CN Series Digital Pianos share an award-winning legacy for excellence. Built upon that heritage is the CN301, with its impeccable piano samples, a large selection of authentic instrumental sounds, and innovative sound system. With a keyboard touch that is considered by many to be the very best in its class, the CN301 sets a new standard for mid-range digital pianos.

  • Depth: 17 1/8” / 435mm
  • Width: 55 1/2” / 1410mm
  • Height: 34 1/4” / 870mm
  • Weight: 105 lbs. / 47.5 kg

The CN301 is the latest addition to Kawai’s CN series of mid-range pianos.  Building on the popularity of its predecessor, the CN39, the new CN301 has features normally found on top-of-the-line instruments.  The renowned Responsive Hammer III action has been upgraded to reduce action noise and improve stability. The Shigeru concert grand piano has been refined, resulting in the best concert grand sound in a mid-range digital piano. The CN301’s crisp, clean sound system delivers unmatched tonal clarity and superior sound. New diffuser panels mounted to the top-facing speakers project the sound in all directions for a more acoustic piano-like effect.  The unique ‘Low Volume Balance’ feature intelligently adjusts the characteristics of the piano for the most favorable expression when playing at low volumes. Both Bluetooth MIDI and Bluetooth audio are incorporated for a variety of wireless applications.   The CN301 joins other Kawai models by supporting Kawai’s PianoRemote and PiaBookPlayer apps which allow settings, sounds and lesson scores to be accessed from an iOS or Android smart device.  The redesigned control panel has a more intuitive layout which compliments the large OLED display.

A highly detailed acoustic piano portrait, employing Kawai’s proprietary Progressive Harmonic Imaging sampling technology, is offered in the CN301. This ensures smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range.



Responsive Hammer III
Responsive Hammer III

The category-leading Responsive Hammer III keyboard action on the CN301 is now new and improved.  The RHIII authentically re-creates the exceptional touch of an acoustic grand piano. With a triple-sensor key detection system that enhances responsiveness and accuracy, the 301’s realistic movement and rigid “springless” design provide a smooth, natural piano playing experience.


Kawai’s highly regarded Ivory Touch key surfaces are an impressive feature of the CN301. Greater piano control is realized with this finely textured material that gently absorbs fingertip perspiration and oils to avoid slipping. Moisture is absorbed without dirt or grease permeating the key surfaces, allowing them to be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.

The CN301 features sound diffusers that closely mirror the 360-degree sound projection characteristics of an acoustic piano. Lower-range frequencies emanate through the underside of the instrument, while top-mounted speakers project mid and high frequencies. This, along with a premium speaker and audio system delivers improved tonal clarity and superior sound that is unrivaled in this category. 


With a 10 song (two track) internal recorder, the CN301 offers record and play with the touch of a button.  To further support hand independence players can use the two tracks to record left- and right-hand parts separately.  Play back the left hand and practice the right-hand part live-or practice the left-hand part live over the right-hand recording.

Grand Feel Pedal System
Grand Feel Pedal System

Reinforcing the CN Series' reputation as the most authentic digital pianos in their price range is Kawai's Grand Feel Pedal System. This unique feature accurately replicates the position and individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano to further enhance the CN301's acoustic piano-like authenticity.


The viewing angle of the CN301 music rest, as with a grand piano, can be adjusted to suit the performer’s playing position or laid flat to provide a level surface for notating scores.
