Today, Kawai acoustic pianos are a top choice of pianists, teachers, churches, students and piano enthusiasts around the globe. Their skillful blending of traditional piano craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology and materials has brought about the finest selection of grand, upright, digital and professional stage pianos available today.
Measuring 150cm in length, the GL-10 offers the same attention to detail and quality found in Kawai’s larger pianos – in a petite size to fit any room. The action design and components are comparable to those in our GE and RX Series pianos to provide outstanding touch and playability. With it’s resonant tone and classic good looks, the GM-10 will be an impressive addition to any home.
Exclusive Ultra-Responsive Action
Kawai’s “Ultra-Responsive Action” stands alone in providing the finest combination of strength, stability, precision and reliability. Hammer heads are made with 100% premium wool felt. To make the action resistant to climatic and seasonal changes in temperature and humidity, we pioneered the use of aluminium action rails, aluminium hammer rest rails and precision parts made of extremely stable, low-friction ABS Styran.
Full Sostenuto Pedal
Unlike many baby grands that have only a bass sustain pedal, the GM-10 Grand allows you to sustain the first played notes, then play staccato over the rest of the keyboard. This is a function normally found only on larger grands.
Steel reinforced, Anti-Warp Keyslip
The GM and GE Series keyslips are reinforced with a heavy-guage steel inside liner that prevents warping or bending in any direction. Keys move freely with virtually no possibility of rubbing or sticking against the inside of the keyslip.
Steel reinforced Keybed
The GM and GE Series keybeds are made of extremely strong, laminated hardwoods. Kawai also reinforces each keybed with an underside steel support beam for maximum stability.
Laminated beams of Matoa
All GM and GE Series beams are made of Matoa, one of the world’s hardest woods. Our cross-banded LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) construction method creates beams that are many times stronger and more durable than beams made of solid wood.
GL and GE Series pinblocks are laminated with a minimum of 11 cross-banded layers of hard rock maple. Lamination provides more strength, greater pressure and more balanced torque on the tuning pins for superior tuning stability.

Your piano will arrive in your home in tune, and ready to play. Over the course of four to six weeks, the instrument may drift out of tune as it settles into its new environment. To keep your piano pitch perfect, it should be tuned twice a year by a professional tuner.
We offer a complimentary first free tuning to be taken within two months of your piano purchase. Montague Pianos manages Piano Tuning Services, serving Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Greater London.
We will be delighted to offer you six monthly tuning reminders.
