Kawai GL-40 Classic Salon Grand Piano - Satin Ebony
The GL-40 Classic Salon Grand offers the dignified presence of a classic grand with a tonal character that is unmatched by any comparable piano.

A popular choice for homes, schools, churches and teaching studios, the GL-40 is a superb choice for the sensitive musician.
Featuring the exclusive Millennium III Action with ABS-Carbon composites, the GL-40 Classic Salon Grand Piano offers the perfect combination of precision and nuance that will inspire the most passionate expressions of musical artistry. In addition to the wide range of advanced features that made the GL Series of instruments MMR Magazine's global music industry "Product of the Year (https://kawaius.com/pianos/grand-pianos/gl-series-mmr-award/) " in 2016, the GL-40 features the Kawai CORE System. CORE is an acronym that refers to the way the piano's strength centers (the rim, plate and underside beams) all focus on one central point at the heart of the instrument to maximize the reflective capabilities of the inner rim and provide greater tonal sustain and power. The CORE System enhances the total musical experience for the player. Play the GL-40 grand piano to understand how it can transform your music for years to come.
