Kawai’s GX-2 BLAK Grand Piano has received a 2017 Product Excellence Award from Music Inc. Magazine. Product Excellence Award winners are selected by votes from music retailers that recognize outstanding achievement among the music industry’s manufacturers and suppliers. Only 30 products are chosen from the many thousands of musical items offered by the global music products industry.
The GX BLAK Series is a collection of six grand piano models offering one consistent level of professional quality. Like all models in the Series, the GX-2 includes the exclusive Millennium III Action featuring components made of ABS-Carbon, a composite material created by the infusion of advanced carbon fiber into Kawai’s ground-breaking ABS Styran that has been used successfully in Kawai pianos for nearly 45 years. ABS-Carbon parts are lighter without sacrificing strength, which produces an action that is faster and more stable than conventional piano actions.
Other defining features include extended key lengths that make playing easier and provide more even response from the front to the back of the playing surface, maple key buttons that are doubled in length to add stiffness to the keys and provide greater power, and Kawai’s new Konsei Katagi rim that uses a blend of distinct hardwoods to achieve an ideal balance of tone.
