This is Takanori “Terry” Otake from Kawai in Japan at the famous Juhl-Sørensen piano store in Copenhagen. Terry is a Kawai Artisan, and when you buy a Shigeru Kawai, a personal visit by Terry within two years is included.
Terry goes through the mechanics and fine tunes the intrument to perfection. Shigeru Kawai are most exclusive instruments made by Kawai due to the precise mechanics with the built in ABS carbon fiber that Kawai introduced already in the seventies.
In this photo essay, you see Terry work on the brand new Shigeru Kawai SK-7 in the Juhl-Sørensen store on Brofogedvej in Copenhagen.
