Unlike other digital pianos, Kawai MP11se is for professional pianists that accept no compromise for digital pianos. When it comes to the pivot length of the digital piano actions, they are mostly shorter than acoustic pianos which can give sense of difference to sensitive professionals (for expression). MP11se has the same length of pivot length like acoustic grand piano’s.

Let off (escapement)

*Escapementthe mechanism that allows the hammer to clear the stringafter striking, so that the stringcan vibrate (TheFreeDictionary). Player can feel tactile feeling of notch when presses a key.

Hammers of grand piano positioned horizontally therefore get affected by gravity directly, which enables faster key recovery. Hammers of upright piano are positioned vertically with springs (jack).
