I've been playing Kawai pianos for a long time, but I'm very new to the GL 40. So far that's the only one I've played from the GL series. It seems to have a slightly heavier action compared to pianos in this price range. I like heavy actions so that's a plus for me. It has a very warm and inviting type of sound. I recorded my arrangement of an iPhone ringtone called 'Peculiar Reflections' which is the default ringtone with the latest iPhone.

I used a pair of Neumann KM184 and the Zoom F4.

Here's my recording:





and this is the original ringtone which is this composition is based on. It's a very tasteful/musical melody!




What's your experience with the GL40 so far?

Thanks.
