The GX Blak Series of Performance Grand Pianos from Kawai
For over ninety years, Kawai has dedicated themselves to producing the very finest pianos possible. The GX-Blak Series of performance grade grand pianos are some of the finest pianos available today. The successor to the world renowned RX-Series of pianos, GX Series grands offers the latest in piano technology fused with time-honored craftsmanship. This series of instruments range from the 5’1″ GX-1 to the 7’6″ Semi- Concert GX-7. Each of these pianos features tapered solid spruce soundboards, Kawai’s Millennium III Action, multi-grip maple pinblocks and much more.
Kawai GX Series grand pianos feature the company’s exclusive Millennium III Action. Constructed utilizing parts made of carbon infused ABS, these actions offer incredibly high responsiveness and lasting durability. Exclusive NEOTEX key surface material is designed to carefully mimic the subtle texture and feel of real ebony and ivory. This material is utilized on both the naturals and sharps to create a beautifully consistent feel across the keyboard.
Kawai instruments are beloved for their warm, full quality of tone. This is made possible thanks to high-quality solid spruce soundboards, dual duplex scaling, a vertically laminated bridge design, brass agraffes and precisely pressed wool hammers. The Konsei Katagi rim utilizes a blend of hardwoods to achieve an ideal balance of tone. We have found that a number of our clients prefer the fullness of a Kawai over the brightness of their primary competitors.
The overall structural design of a Kawai GX-Blak grand piano is one of focused strength and lasting durability. Features such as the Stretcher Over-Lap Integrated Design, a steel reinforced keyboard, steel reinforced key slip, a V-Pro cast iron plate and a hard maple multi-grip pinblock mean each of these fine instruments will last for decades to come. The Millenium III Action (thanks to its use of ABS-Carbon) stays in regulation. We have seen these actions stay in incredible condition even during hard use in institutional settings.
Presence of Character
Each GX Grand is crafted to be not only a wonderful instrument but a beautiful one as well. The round arm European cabinet design rests on subtle spade legs and solid brass casters. The top lid edge is beveled and sits on three separate lid props which allow you to adapt the piano to various acoustical requirements. These pianos are available in finishes ranging from polished ebony to figured Sapeli mahogany.
Peace of Mind – Protected Value
Kawai stands behind their pianos with a Ten Year Fully Transferable Warranty. We have found that Kawai pianos stand up to the most intense use and these pianos have some of the best service records in piano industry history. You can rest assured that your investment in a new Kawai piano will serve you well for both now and the future.
