The smallest and most compact grand piano in the Kawai range
The Kawai GL-10 is the smallest model in Kawai's grand piano lineup, delivering superb value for money while benefiting from the same high build and component quality Kawai pianos are known for.
While only 5'1 in length, the piano benefits from a solid spruce soundboard, making it class leading at its price point. The GL10 is also fitted with the Millennium III ABS-carbon action making the piano incredibly responsive with superb balance and control.
The ground-breaking Millennium III Action utilises components made of ABS-Carbon—a composite material infused with carbon fibre. ABS-Carbon is incredibly strong and rigid, meaning that GL Series action parts can be made lighter without sacrificing strength. The result is a stronger, faster action that offers more power, better control and greater stability than conventional all-wood actions.
The purpose of the soundboard is to transform the vibrations of the piano’s strings into a rich, resounding tone. Kawai uses only straight-grained, quarter-sawn solid spruce for GL Series soundboards. Each one is strategically tapered to provide the optimum degree of resonant movement in each region. Only soundboards that meet or exceed our demanding resonance standards are selected for use in the GL Series grand pianos.
While the entry-level model in the grand piano range, the Kawai GL-10 also benefits from a soft-closing lid or fallboard. A luxurious feature previously only high end instruments and means no more trapped fingers!
SOLID construction creates an exceptionally rigid foundation to support string tension. First, the pinblock is fitted to the plate. Then, the pinblock and over-lapping stretcher bar are integrated into a single structure and solidly anchored to the rim. The extraordinary thickness of the stretcher bar highlights the structural integrity of this framework designed to ensure stable tuning and powerful tone.
