The MP8 was the former flagship of Kawai’s acclaimed MP range of digital stage pianos. It followed the exceptional MP9000 and MP9500 that were known worldwide for their outstanding wooden-key AWA Grand weighted keyboard action. The MP8 and its successor, the MP10, paved the way for the current MP11 which, together with the MP7, was named “Pro Digital Keyboard Line of the Year” by the readers of MMR Magazine in 2018.
The Kawai MP8 was an outstanding stage piano with 256 built-in sounds, 192-voice polyphony, Kawai's exclusive wooden key AWA PRO action and great effects and controller functions. Now discontinued, the MP8 was a true professional stage piano that laid the foundation for Kawai's current award-winning MP Series instruments.
