Introducing the Kawai GL-50 Baby Grand Piano

The Kawai GL-50 sits at the very top of the GL series, Conservatory size at 6'2 yet remains excellent value, with a huge specification for the money.

The piano has such refinements as duplex scaling for an enhanced treble, Kawai's Millennium III ABS-Carbon action for superior touch and control, while its size certainly delivers the quality of tone required of a performance instrument.

A great value piano which is a perfect choice for the school performance space and has a lockable lid too.

Dominic Barnett – Chamberlain Pianos

Millennium III Action

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.

Tapered, solid spruce soundboard

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.

Soft-closing fallboard

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!

Stretcher Overlap Integrated Design (SOLID)

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.

Quality control and bespoke setup

With fantastic build and component quality, the Kawai GL50 is beautifully set up by Kawai's technicians prior to delivery and ready for a lifetime of service.
