Building upon decades of experience and tradition, our celebrated technology delivers extraordinary touch and tone that produces lasting enjoyment and peak performance.

In the Shigeru Kawai Research and Development Laboratory in Japan, the Shigeru Kawai renowned Master Piano Artisans patiently craft one of the world’s finest musical instruments scale design—the GL-10 Classic Baby Grand Piano. Combining time-tested methods of origin with today's most sophisticated piano design tools each GL-10 Classic Baby Grand Piano is conceived as a “next step” in the evolving art of the piano. The scarcity of materials used and the painstaking attention devoted to each GL-10 Classic Baby Grand Piano make these instruments rare indeed. A limited number are crafted each year for all the world. But to truly understand the GL-10 is to play it. Only then, in its transcendent tone and incomparable touch, will you fully sense the passion, the devotion... the tradition and innovative spirit of Kawai.
The Kawai Master Piano Artisans... The Kawai GL-10 piano is perfected by an elite brand of artisan craftsman. Each Kawai Master Piano artisans is at the pinnacle of his profession.

Applying his own unique musical personality, the artisan transforms each Kawai GL-10 5'0" Classic Baby Grand Piano into a distinctive work of art, ready to discover its true and lasting voice at hands of the artist.
Purity of Tone that Fills the Room... In order to produce Kawai’s special tone, a broad range of woods are meticulously analyzed for quality and character, before being selected as the finest materials for each specific purpose. 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 Kawai Artisan Craftsmen in order to achieve rich, deep bass tones, and bright, colorful, sustaining treble tones.

The synergy of the selection of the finest structurally divergent hardwoods produces a powerful, well-rounded richness of extraordinary tone that is the hallmark of the GL Series. This focus creates an incredibly strong “core” foundation that maximizes the reflective capabilities of the inner rim for outstanding tonal power and sustain. Select precision tapered permanently crowned soundboards made of only straight-grained, quarter-sawn solid spruce, with bridges made of solid maple or beech, are carefully set and matched to the iron plate for correct string pressure and optimal enhanced energy transfer, which empowers the GL-10 with exceptional energy transmission and tonal projection for life, breadth, and depth of extraordinary tone that lasts from generation to generation.

Touch Texture. Responsive Fast Action.
Beautiful Quality of ‘Singing Strings’. Brilliant Rich Harmonics and Depth.

 

Playing the piano is as much an experience of "touch" as it is of tone. Day after day, the musician's hands come in contact with the piano keys. The piano's responsiveness can make a critical difference that can affect the player's performance, confidence and overall playing enjoyment. Consistent, ultra-responsive touch is a Kawai tradition.

 

The extraordinary combination of strength and stability allows the GL-10 piano action to transfer energy to the underfelted maple hammers with unparalleled efficiency, power, precision and nuance for a superb playing experience, leaving more energy in the strings for increased tone production that will last over time better than any other piano.


A Rare Treasure… A limited number of all Kawai instruments will ever bear the name GL. The rigorous degree of handwork and use of specially chosen materials keeps these instruments rare in both character and quantity. Each GL piano is a limited edition treasure numbered by year of creation.
