This is a Kawai K500 piano is made in Japan, so it is one of the product lines of high quality (some newer Kawai's are made in Indonesia... not so good...) . The Kawai K500 is the same size as the Yamaha U3 - Over the last 30 years Kawai has found its way into most practice rooms at schools and conservatoires of music, teachers studios, concert halls and the home. The reason for this mass appeal is because of the no nonsense approach to design, and quality of production to meet the demands of affordability and performance. The Kawai K500 delivers high performance sound and playability, it is also a very nice designed piece of furniture that looks beautiful in any situation.
This Kawai K500 is the AT32 model and is fitted with Kawai's Anytime Silent system that allows the pianist to choose between playing the piano normally, listening to the piano through headphones, and using a conventional practice pedal system that reduces the volume of the piano in acoustic mode by approximately half the volume. The Kawai Anytime system can play in piano, harpsichord and vibraphone modes. It is also able to be adjusted in reverberation settings for room, stage or hall. The system is midi compatible, and also has a line in and line out function to enable the piano to be connected to a computer for recording purposes, or to be used through a PA system.

At Shackleford pianos, we offer a guarantee on all of the pianos that we sell.
The length of this warranty will vary dependant on the piano, but the minimum will be five years. You will be advised of the length of your warranty. Our guarantee covers any technical fault that you may encounter with your piano however, any fault due to misuse, problems encountered from not having the piano serviced regularly and any problems caused due to excess or inconsistent heat, cold or moisture will not be covered by our warranty.
To ensure that your piano is covered by our warranty it must be serviced by a representative of Shackleford Pianos, along with this, please follow our tips on how to take care of your piano:
Even if your piano is not used it will go out of tune. Make sure you have your piano tuned every six months.
Avoid humidity. The best humidity level to keep a piano at is around 60%
Avoid placing your piano near a radiator or against an outside wall, near open fireplaces or log burners.
Avoid water damage. Keep vases, pot plants, cups of tea etc away from the piano.
When you clean your piano use a micro fibre cloth. Do not use furniture polish.
The best temperature to keep your piano at is between 21 - 24c The worst thing you can expose a piano to is extremes of heat and humidity. For example, if you go away for a few days and let your house freeze, then come home and put your heating on high, expect piano problems. Instead, slowly introduce heat into the room.
Our beginner's pianos are all at A440 concert pitch, respond to a grade 5 playing standard, and are guaranteed for three years against any technical problems. These are ideal pianos to get started on. If you then decide within the first three years that you love the piano so much you want to upgrade to a better model, we will give you what you paid for your beginner piano (less transport costs) as a trade in value on your upgraded piano. All we ask is that you follow the guidelines above and this will maintain the warranty.
