Kawai EP-705m

 
 

A quite rare piece, the EP705m was an electric upright piano built by Kawai Musical Instruments in the mid-1980s, very much in the vein of Yamaha’s CP-60 amplified uprights. In stark contrast to a Rhodes’ hammered tines, the EP705 and related EP608 contain a full compact Upright frame with three sets of piezo pickups under the strings, with a full 73-key action from their upright pianos instead of a more compact design.
