The second model in the popular and excellent value GL series
At 5'5 the Kawai GL-30 is a step up in the range from the entry level GL-10, offering longer string length and a larger soundboard area. As the first model in the range to have duplex scaling, these combined enhancements enable the GL-30 to produce a superior sound quality.
The GL-30 benefits also from Kawai's Millennium III ABS-carbon action, delivering an incredibly responsive touch 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 Kawai's demanding resonance standards are selected for use in the GL Series grand pianos.
While the entry-level grand piano series, the Kawai GL range 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.
