Kawai GX7 Grand Piano
The flagship model within Kawai's GX Series of Premium Grand Pianos combines state of the art technology with traditional design and workmanship, culminating in a rich, expressive tone, and a responsive touch usually only experienced by the very best concert pianists.
As well as incorporating Kawais ground-breaking Millennium III Action, the GX7s key length has been increased considerably. The fulcrum distance is greater than in typical Grand Pianos, and as such the key pivot length is extended. In simpler terms, this keyboard allows for the most expressive control imaginable, whether you are playing at the very tip of the key, or towards the back. This consistent touch feels light, and extremely responsive, allowing for the slightest nuances in playing to be heard and felt.
The woods used in the production of the GX7 go through a rigorous selection process, with only the very finest being selected. For the soundboard, woods selected will generate the rich and deep bass tones as well as the resonance and sparkle in upper registers, whereas woods used for the bridges, ribs and even inner-rims are carefully considered before selection to ensure maximum durability and power.
Premium Grand Piano hammers are used in the production of the GX7, made with felts from the best Oceanian wool. The delicate, soft exterior allows for easy pianissimo playing, while the tough, rigid interior is saved for fortissimo playing, giving you the best of both worlds across a vast range of dynamics. The hammers are also under-felted, which adds resilience and also means the hammers can be voiced in a way that maximises the tonal output of the instrument.
Improvement to the overall rigidity of the GX7 thanks to an increased thickness in the wooden beam connected to the outer rim gives the piano a more immersive sound, along with exceptional tensile strength, supporting even the most expressive playing with ease. The strength of the carbon steel tuning pins also means the piano has excellent tuning stability.
