The K11 is a ROMpler and a keyboard version of the Kawai GMega, a General MIDI ROMpler. It was released after the Kawai K4 and before the Kawai K5000. It can be thought of as an update to the K4 that reflects that General MIDI standard created in 1991.

The K11's drum kits are a little bit terrible in that they suffer from an overuse of reverb.

It uses an external power supply (12V DC 500mA negative tip model PS121).
