The Yamaha GB1 baby grand piano is Yamaha’s best-selling baby grand piano. Yamaha manufactures the GB1 in Indonesia, making this piano a super affordable, starter baby grand piano. Measuring 5’ in length, it fits nicely in virtually any home, condo, or apartment.
The Yamaha tone is well known for being sharp, bright, and piercing; and is on full display even on this model. Rest assured despite its small size, it produces a clear, nearly glass-shattering tone perfect for jazz, bluegrass, and honky tonk!
If you are a higher caliber player and require a sostenuto pedal and a music desk, with mobility front to back you will want to look at Kawai’s GL-10, as the Yamaha GB1 only has a bass sustain as its center pedal and a fixed, non-movable music rack.
If you are a classical pianist a Kawai GL-10 is often the better option, as Kawai offers a warm, rich tone and a slightly firmer action, which more advanced pianists often prefer.
Additionally, the Kawai’s 12,000-part Millennium III action is made in Japan, not Indonesia. This translates to superior design, craftsmanship and ensures durability for several decades.
