GL Series


It’s an extraordinary occurence when a piano line is voted “the best in an entire industry.” After all, the music products industry is composed of much more than just keyboard instruments. It is an enormous product category that has been dominated for past 30 years by guitars and software-based gear, not to mention band instruments, string instruments, drums, basses, amplifiers, DJ equipment and so much more. That’s why the worldwide musical world took notice when the Kawai GL Series line of grand pianos was voted Dealer’s Choice “2016 Product of the Year” for the entire industry. Think about that for a moment. The GL Series was selected “Number 1” over every other music product line on the planet. And that should speak volumes to every piano buyer. It proves that the GL Series Grand Pianos are truly exceptional, with a rare combination of tone, touch and stability that rises far above all other instruments in its price range. See and hear the GL Series pianos for yourself. An entire industry of voters can’t be wrong.


One of the most coveted attributes of a fine piano is dynamic range—the ability to play not only thundering fortissimos, but also the most delicate and sensitive pianissimos. The technological superiority of the Millennium III Action is most evident in its extraordinary ability to produce the perfect pianissimo. It is ironic that GL Series technology speaks loudest when it whispers.


The centerpiece of Kawai technology is our
ground-breaking Millennium III Action featuring components made of ABS-Carbon—a composite material infused with carbon fiber. Because ABS-Carbon is incredibly strong and rigid, 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.


Long-term consistency of touch can only be achieved through an intelligent design approach that embraces the most advanced methods and materials.


Kawai grand pianos are renowned for their expressive tone and expansive dynamic range that allow pianists to communicate with ease and passion.


Strength allows a piano to perform with integrity and authority over time. GL Series pianos are built with remarkable strength to thrive amid the rigors of long-term use.


Excellence extends into the details of the GL Series. Every element is carefully conceived to optimize long-term performance and satisfaction.
