The GL-10 is the latest incarnation of Kawai’s popular small grand piano model, and brings the Millennium III ABS Carbon grand piano action to the most affordable price point.
This affords the GL-10 a range of expressive control that makes it an option for a wider range of players, including more advanced players who, for technical work, need the level of responsiveness the extended key length brings.
The laws of physics dictate that baby grands have their limitations, but you’ll find the Kawai GL-10 can produce a fuller, stronger sound than you would expect from a grand piano of this size, making it a real pleasure for situations where you need a grand but have only limited space.
Practicalities have not been compromised either, with a music desk which is as fully adjustable as that on any Kawai grand: important for comfortable playing, and something you can’t take for granted on every grand of this size and price point.
If you can accommodate something slightly longer, the 166cm GL-30 (made in Japan) magnifies all the qualities of the GL-10, adding a greater sense of dynamic and tonal ease that comes with the increased string length and soundboard area.
The GL-Series is completed by a 188cm GL-50 model. For those wishing to add a self-playing system, the steel-reinforced keybed, precise action, and overall structural integrity make the GL-Series pianos ideal for professionally fitted after-market systems such as PianoDisc iQ.
