In the GE-20 Baby Grand Piano, Kawai has designed a superb instrument offering the rich, full-bodied tone that one might expect from much larger grand pianos. The GE-20's petite frame allows it to adapt to virtually any home or studio environment. Now equipped with the revolutionary Millennium III Action, it will provide many years of satisfying musical enjoyment.
A grand piano is made up of over ten thousand precision parts – wood, metal, fiber and many other materials. Just assembling them into the mere form of a grand piano is, by itself, and immense undertaking. But the process of crafting them into a precision instrument capable of translating the dynamic expressions of the soul into the language of music, creating an instrument that can truly sing... is an art.
The Kawai grand piano transforms craftsmanship into artistry. Here you will find the most advanced pianos of the modern age—instruments that combine the latest technology with the time-tested principles of old-world craftsmanship to provide a sublime musical experience. From our renowned EX Concert Grand Piano to the strikingly beautiful RX BLAK Series Artist Grands to our high-quality GE and GM Series instruments, the Kawai commitment to excellence is evident in every note, every subtle nuance, every soulful expression of the mind and heart. Imagine the possibilities.
Drawing upon years of intelligent engineering and technical artistry, Kawai has created an exceptional instrument that offers the rich, full-bodied tone of a classic grand in a flexible size. With its resonant tone, classic good looks and advanced Millennium III Action.

The Exclusive Millennium III Action
The 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.
NEOTEX™ Key Surfaces
Kawai's exclusive NEOTEX keytop material made of cellulose fiber 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. Since NEOTEX is used for both the sharps and naturals, the feel of the keys is consistent across the entire keyboard. NEOTEX resists cracking and fading over years of use – and is static-resistant to help prevent the build-up of unwanted dust. The result is a beautiful, long-lasting key surface with exceptional playability.
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.
Full Duplex Scale
The full duplex scale enhances harmonics in the treble range adding brilliance, richness and sustain to the piano's tone.
Hard brass agraffes – positioned through precise CNC drilling of the iron plate – ensure accuracy of string alignment, spacing and angles for the greatest uniformity of tone. They also allow the most precise measurement of “speaking length' for the strings and provide smooth string movement for ease of tuning.
'Soft Fall' Fallboard
The GE Series fallboard is designed with a dual-damping mechanism so sensitive that it was dubbed 'soft fall.' The ultra-slow closing system protects hands, fingers and the piano's finish from the harm that a jarring close might cause.
