KAWAI GX-5

The GX-5 BLAK Series Chamber Grand is the artist’s “grand for all seasons.” With resplendent tone and superb power in a flexible 6’7″ size, it adapts to an exceptional range of musical requirements and performance venues.

Description

With outstanding tone and power in a flexible 6’7″ size, the GX-5 BLAK Series Chamber Grand Piano adapts to a range of musical requirements and performance venues. Equally well-suited for the smaller recital hall or larger teaching studio, it combines our exclusive Millennium III Grand Piano Action (with carbon composite parts), our moisture-absorbent NEOTEX™ key surfaces, extended keysticks for greater control, and mahogany hammers for a lighter, faster keystroke. Together, these attributes provide unparalleled tone and responsiveness allowing the performer to communicate the intimate musical nuances of the heart with precision, passion and ease. The GX-5 Chamber Grand Piano is part of the GX Series grand piano lineup.
