Line Blurred
Kawai’s latest hybrid piano, the CS10, blurs the line between acoustic and digital instruments. The new model’s cabinet is the same as the Kawai K2 upright piano. Classic lines, traditional leg and toe block design plus an authentic fallboard create a traditional appearance. The CS10 features Grand Feel action with extra-long wooden keys.

Larger Tenor Piece
JodyJazz has added a 9* tenor model to its DV CHI range of saxophone mouthpieces. The 9* model provides a larger facing and now offers the widest tip opening in the range, which allows for the movement of more air and adds fullness of tone and volume. The actual tip opening size of the DV CHI Tenor 9* mouthpiece is .125 inches. It joins the DV CHI Tenor 7 ( .101 inches), 7* ( .108 inches) and 8* ( .116 inches) models.
