The GL-40 occupies an important spot in Kawai’s lineup, as the less expensive, utility version of their hugely popular GX-2. Despite the lower price point, the GL-40 incorporates many of the same premium features found in the GX-2, such as extended length keysticks for superior touch control, full perimeter rim design, and of course, Kawai’s now-legendary Millennium III Carbon Fiber action. At 5’11”, this Japanese-built, classic grand is a true institutional quality instrument, available for the price of an instrument traditionally meant only for home use.
