The M3W digital piano combines value and affordability with 200 of the best sounds ever developed for Kurzweil professional keyboards and sports features specifically engineered for sound, convenience, and control.
Fusing traditional spinet piano design and styling, the M3W is available in two professional finishes: a fine Simulated Rosewood finish and a classic Elegant White. The powerful 50-watt stereo amplifier and 2-way 4-speaker sound system with downward-facing 165mm woofers and partial back panel provides excellent sound dispersion to complement the instrument’s broad sound set. With tweeters placed directly behind the keys, a wide stereo sound field is created, optimized for both player and audience. The M3W’s simple and intuitive control panel is angled for improved visibility/use and features an easy-slide key cover.
The M3W uses Kurzweil’s exclusive Mara sound chip and VAST architecture to create the most realistic and playable instrument sounds available. The digital signals are then realized through hand-matched amplifiers and speakers to produce a beautiful yet intimate sound field.
The M3W sonic pallet features the famous Kurzweil Triple Strike Grand Piano along with a diverse array of top notch and categorized instrument selections – electric pianos, organs, orchestral, drums, basses, horns, winds, guitars, percussion and more – are all available for creating entire musical productions in the comfort of your own home.

The M3W’s easy Split and Layering features offer yet another dimension of performance while it’s “Favorite” buttons provide instant recall of your most needed presets and custom combinations.
Great piano control starts with the keyboard action and the M3W has Kurzweil’s best “wood embedded” graded hammer action. Hammer motion, not key motion, is sensed to provide the most accurate dynamic control possible. The new M3W keyboard grades the hammer weight through 4 gradual zones from light in the treble end to heavy in the bass end.
Complimenting the key-action, the M3W features all 3 standard acoustic piano pedals built-in (sustain, sostenuto and soft).
