Kawai GX BLAK Series Grand Pianos


Kawai GX BLAK Performance Series

Grand Pianos

The pianos for those who demand high performance.  Sometimes the discerning pianist needs more from a piano. More dynamic range, more assertiveness, more sensitivity, more control… more of everything that makes possible the full range of human emotions in musical terms. That’s why we created the GX BLAK Performance Series Grand Pianos. They provide more to the artist. And, accordingly, we invest more — more time in the design process, more costly materials, more effort and attention in every stage of the crafting process. It takes a great deal more to produce a GX BLAK Series piano. But the results speak for themselves… and for the player. The GX BLAK Series pianos provide everything an artist needs to achieve and express at the highest level.




GX BLAK Series grand pianos are endowed with important enhancements that elevate performance and optimize touch and tone. Together, these attributes expand the range of artistic possibilities and help to explain why the GX BLAK Series instruments are counted among the finest pianos in the world.


Our exclusive NEOTEX key surface material made with cellulose fiber offers the smooth, understated texture of natural ivory and ebony. Its semi-porous, silica-filled surface absorbs the hand’s natural oils and perspiration that can cause slipping. NEOTEX resists cracking and fading over years of use and is used for both the sharps and the naturals for a consistent feel across the entire keyboard.


Mahogany is a preferred choice for crafting the highest quality hammers due to its light weight and high strength-to-weight ratio. Mahogany hammers produce a lighter, faster keystroke and release from the strings faster, leaving more energy in the strings for increased tone production. GX BLAK Series models are the only Kawai grand pianos featuring mahogany hammer mouldings.


The spruce keys on the GX Series are designed with extended length to make playing easier and provide a more even response from the front to the back of the playing surface. A slightly taller profile and concert-length maple key buttons make the keysticks more rigid to provide exceptional energy transfer and optimum power.


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 GX Series technology speaks loudest when it whispers.
