Among pianos, each size possesses a unique character with distinctive tonal qualities. The impressive tone of the 5'2″ GL-20 baby grand piano is enhanced not only by its longer scale design that provides more bass response, but also by the addition of Dual Duplex Scaling that allows the extreme ends of the piano's strings to vibrate and produce additional harmonics that enliven tone. Dual Duplex Scaling is an important design element that helps make possible the beautiful singing quality of the GL-20.
We invite you to experience this extraordinary instrument, an important member of the renowned GL Series line of grand pianos that was named Global Music Industry "Product of the Year" by MMR Magazine in 2016.
