The Kawai BL-31 was a competitor to the Yamaha U1, U2 in the 1980’s. Very similar in looks, size, and sound, it is often hard to tell these two pianos apart. Its voiced a little darker in tone than most Yamaha pianos, but still very clear and clean. It is an all around responsive and fun instrument to play. They are great pianos that sell for less than pianos of similar quality under the Yamaha name. This is a fantastic instrument for a fraction of the new price of a Kawai Piano. Purchase includes matching bench, free local delivery, and one free in-home tuning.
