Today, it has been a little more than one year since we bought our first (medium?) grand. My wife just cried when the GL30 finally arrived in our apartment!

I play now four / five hours a day and I enjoy its sound.
It Is very mellow in the middle section, I also like its bass section, only the last treble octave is not that great.

I decided to buy the GL30 mainly for its Millennium III action, I was convinced by the use of the same action consistently across the different Kawai models.


Had I the opportunity to buy a used Gx2 I for sure would have considered it, however, I am not sure how much higher the price would have been!

I am only an intermediate player so many years have to come until my skills will outperform the GL30!

Iโ€™m so glad you are really enjoying your piano๐Ÿ˜Š. If your upper treble octave is not as great, you are in very good company as this is a weak spot on acoustic pianos.

Nice!!

The MIII action is very cool, and super cool to look at! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

How is a grand in a apartment? Many members have a hard time with apartment pianos. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy it for many years to come! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
