Since the development of the first digital piano, instrument makers have strived to create an instrument that could provide the experience of playing an acoustic grand piano.
For years, CASIO has refined its technologies with this goal in mind. CASIO derives a significant advantage in reaching this goal since it does not manufacture acoustic pianos. This position has allowed CASIO to research the finest acoustic pianos from around the world and develop groundbreaking music technology that recreates the piano experience.
The result is a revolutionary line of digital pianos. These digital pianos incorporate tones developed from three world-famous grand pianos, a keyboard system employing the same materials and dynamic mechanisms as grand pianos, and a sound system that delivers the rich, natural tone quality and sound field of an acoustic grand piano. CASIO's CELVIANO Grand Hybrid represents this convergence of acoustic and digital technologies.
With the new GP-510BP and GP-310BK/WE, CASIO has succeeded in expanding the range of musical expression even further. This is the crystallisation of 40 years of instrument making at CASIO.
CELVIANO Grand Hybrid reproduces even the subtle nuances of the world’s most respected pianos. Three pianos that originate in Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna were chosen for this project. CASIO has painstakingly researched and analysed the unique characteristics of each piano.
CELVIANO Grand Hybrid delivers brilliant sound of these pianos reproduced with CASIO’s advanced technology. It will provide the experience of owning three of the finest pianos on earth.
A balanced, elegant sound. Ideal for playing impressionistic music. Notable for its clear, ringing tone across the entire range.
A brilliant, rich sound. Loved by pianists for its wide range of expression. Well suited for various playing styles and genres.
Noted for its impressive low range. Great for both soft and vigorous playing with its warm tone. An ideal instrument for music from the classical period.
The player’s movement is transformed into music with many important factors. The most tangible factor is the keys. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid delivers authenticity from the first touch.
The revolutionary Natural Grand Hammer Action keyboard is made with high-quality wooden keys. Its mechanism incorporates a hammer action that follows the same path of motion as in a grand piano. When the lid is lifted, you can see the hammers in motion through a clear panel as you play. Going beyond a standard acoustic mechanism, this action allows faster note repetition than acoustic pianos, while maintaining a true piano touch.
Celvanio Hall Simulator based on careful analysis of the acoustic characteristics of a world-famous concert venue. Each space has a total of four Listening Position settings. For example, the pianist can simulate the experience of hearing the piano from a seat in the audience, as opposed to the playing position.
