The new Kawai GL- 10
The GL Series of Grand Pianos possess all the essential qualities that have made Kawai pianos a preferred choice of pianists and educators for generations. Conceived with one goal in mind—to provide exceptional touch and tone that endures. Extraordinary touch and tone that is respected worldwide for its remarkable stability. This is the Kawai difference that you will hear and feel for years to come.
The Millennium III action
The Millennium III Action features components made of ABS-Carbon, which is incredibly sturdy and rigid. The result is a stronger, faster action that offers more power, better control and greater stability than conventional all-wood actions.
Longer keys make playing easier and provide a more even response from the front to the back of the playing surface.
The power of pianissimo
One of the most coveted attributes of a fine piano is dynamic range— the ability to play not only thundering fortissimos, but also the most delicate and sensitive pianissimos.
Tapered soundboard made of solid spruce
The soundboard is the heart of a piano. Its purpose is to transform the vibrations of the piano’s strings into a rich, resounding tone. Only soundboards that meet or exceed our demanding resonance standards are selected for use in the GL series grand pianos.
Bridges transfer the vibrations of the strings to the soundboard. Made from solid maple or beech they are carefully set and matched t for correct string pressure and optimal tonal transfer.
Strength allows a piano to perform with integrity and authority over time. GL Series pianos are built with remarkable strength to thrive amid the rigors of long-term use.
The tuning pins are made from the finest carbon steel, machine threaded for maximum continuous torque and nickel plated to enhance beauty and provide long-term protection.
Steel-reinforced, anti-warp keyslip
A piano’s keyslip is the long, horizontal piece of wood that covers the front of the keys. Because it is made of wood, a keyslip can warp or bend with changes in humidity, causing keys to stick. To avoid this problem, the GL series keyslip is reinforced with a heavy-gauge steel liner that prevents warping or bending in any direction. Keys move freely with virtually no possibility of rubbing or sticking against the inside of the keyslip.
“Soft Fall” Fallboard
The ultra-slow, “Soft Fall” fallboard closing system protects hands that a sudden close might cause. Of course, it helps protect the piano finish too !
