GE-20 Grand Piano
Drawing upon years of intelligent engineering and technical artistry, Kawai has created two superb instruments in the GE Series offering the rich, fullbodied tone that one might expect from much larger grand pianos. Both instruments combine beauty, style and high performance to offer a fulfilling musical environment for your home and family.
The GE-20's petite frame allows it to adapt to virtually any home or studio environment.
Millennium III ActionThe revolutionary Millennium III Advanced Piano Action represents the third evolution of piano touch. Combining modern material science with innovative new design concepts, Kawai has developed an action with a touch and consistency that is unmatched. We cordially invite you to experience the preeminent piano action of the third millennium.
The Millennium III Action features components made of ABS-Carbon, a new composite material created by the infusion of carbon into our existing ABS Styran. ABS-Carbon is incredibly sturdy and rigid, which allowed Kawai to make the action parts lighter without sacrificing strength. The lighter design makes the Millennium III Action tremendously fast and effortless for the player. The repetition and response are superb.
Every exacting detail of the action was exhaustively analysed to meet the stringent demands of the skilled pianist. One prime example of this effort was the addition of microscopic surface texture on the jack at the point where it meets the hammer. The result of this subtle but important change is a dramatic increase in control during pianissimo playing.
Premium SoundboardsKawai wood technologists use all the senses ... sight, smell, touch and sound ... in the selection of the finest woods. The soundboard is made of solid quarter-sawn spruce that is carefully chosen and scientifically tested to exceed Kawai's demanding resonance standards for superior tone.
Duplex ScaleThe duplex scale enhances harmonics in the treble range adding brilliance and richness to the piano's tone.
AgraffesAgraffes insure accuracy in string alignment, spacing and angles to produce greater uniformity of tone and consistent "speaking length" for each note.
"Soft Fall" Fallboard
Our ultra-slow, "Soft Fall" fallboard closing system with dual-damping mechanism protects hands and the piano's finish from the harm that a jarring close might cause.
"NEOTEX" Key SurfacesGE Series weighted and balanced keys feature Kawai's exclusive NEOTEX key surfaces formulated with cellulose fiber. NEOTEX offers the smooth, understated texture of natural ivory and ebony ... and a semi-porous silica-filled surface to absorb the hand's natural oils and perspiration. It resists cracking and fading over years of use ... and is static-resistant to prevent the build-up of unwanted dust. The result is a beautiful, long lasting key surface with exceptional playability.
