The round shape of the tool allows you to place it in the center of the living space. According to the creators, the new model has the acoustic characteristics of a grand piano.
The 50th Anniversary Concept Model was developed in partnership with the Japanese furniture company Karimoku. The instrument was given a single body, resulting in a high-quality timbre and sound field. The piano was created using machine-cut wood technology using Japanese Nara oak wood from Hokkaido Island, as well as 3D printing.
The instrument has a large display that allows you to use different sound options and additional settings, as well as loaded notes. In addition, drones are controlled from the monitor. The description of the piano indicates that the flying speakers seem to "shower the player with a sound shower."
