GEWA Says…“The intuitive operating concept of the UP 405 is designed for user-friendliness through and through and completely dispenses with unnecessary elements. Quick and direct access to all settings via the elegant touch display leaves room for what really matters when playing the piano.

The UP 405 features an innovative 3-way speaker system with a total of 6 high-quality VISATON speakers (2 each bass, midrange and tweeter), whose signal flow is controlled and balanced by a digital sound processor. The sophisticated alignment of the loudspeakers results in a sound impression that approximates that of a real concert grand piano.

Our proprietary Concert Pianist II keyboard gives you the finest control over touch response via mechanical pressure point simulation – even in very quiet passages. The zone-weighted hammered keyboard is equipped with wooden elements and a pleasant Ivory Touch surface. Real sound – real playing feel.”
