Introducing the Kawai GX-2 ATXII Anytime Grand Piano

Fitted with Kawai's ATXII Anytime system, the Kawai GX-2ATX2 measures 5'10 in length and is a perfect compromise for those who require the aesthetic, response and tonality of an acoustic grand piano, but also might need to practice at unsociable hours.

It is compact enough to fit in a medium sized home but large enough to produce a much better bass than a smaller, baby size grand, and has very similar dimensions to the Boston GP178 and Steinway Model O grands.

The GX Series grand pianos benefit from the groundbreaking Millennium III ABS-carbon a+ction, delivering an incredibly responsive touch with superb balance and control.

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 GX 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.

Specially selected tonewoods

In order to produce Kawai’s unique tone, a broad range of woods are meticulously analysed for quality and character. The soundboard has arguably the most significant influence over a piano’s individual tonal elements. Therefore, woods that conform to the most rigorous gravity and propagation velocity standards are carefully selected by experienced craftsmen in order to achieve rich, deep bass tones, and bright, colourful, sustaining treble tones. The bridges, ribs and the inner-rim are also carefully considered, resulting in a broad range of sound which allows even greater expressive power.

Soft-closing fallboard

The Kawai GX range also benefits from a soft-closing lid or fallboard, lending a luxurious air to the elegant cabinetry and also resulting in no more trapped fingers!

Premium, underfelted grand piano hammers

In order to realise the pianist’s infinite range of expression, the GX Series utilises premium mahogany hammers with felt prepared from the finest quality long-haired New Zealand and Australian wool, for a soft, delicate exterior, but tight and rigid on the inside. When playing pianissimo, the strings are struck by the delicate exterior felt to produce a soft and gentle tone, while fortissimo passages utilise the tighter, harder interior felt, thus producing a louder, more powerful sound. Moreover, all hammers are under-felted in order to further improve their resilience.

Quality control and bespoke setup

With fantastic build and component quality, the Kawai GX-2 is tuned, regulated and toned several times before leaving the factory to ensure a perfect technical setup and superior tonal quality
