Description

The GX-1 classic grand piano is an instrument that always exceeds expectations. Seeing its 5′ 5″ frame, one might assume that it was not designed for for high-performance situations. But the GX-1 should never be underestimated. It was built, first and foremost, to be a “performance instrument.” Fitted with the same high-end enhancements found in all the GX BLAK Performance Series pianos – including the revolutionary Millennium III Grand Action with Carbon Fiber Composites and exclusive NEOTEX™ key surfaces – the GX-1 delivers superb touch and an extraordinary range of tonal expressiveness that rivals any grand piano on the market today. In addition, its flexible size allows it to adapt admirably to a wide range of performance spaces.
