Thoroughly Pursuing Expressive, Dynamic Resonance

The grand piano, with its large body and intricate structure, generates a rich and delicate resonant sound. CELVIANO meticulously explores this resonance through Casio's unique sound source technology. It captures the nuances of playing, expressing resonances based on your touch, achieving elongated harmonics, and delivering a vivid, well-balanced sound. This extends to complex tonal changes influenced by variations in the force applied to the keys and the passage of time, faithfully reflecting the subtle nuances of the performer and creating the rich expressiveness distinctive to grand pianos. Embedded in the AP-750 are three grand piano tones cherished by musicians worldwide: Berlin Grand, Hamburg Grand, and Vienna Grand, including C. Bechstein. To convey the enchanting beauty of these tones, Casio employs the "AiR Grand Sound Source," featured in the flagship CELVIANO Grand Hybrid Series. The AP-550 and AP-S450 also incorporate two beautiful grand piano tones using the "Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source." From delicate touches that are like taking a breath to dynamic and powerful expressions that convey the player's emotions, these instruments offer a natural, beautiful, and delightful grand piano playing experience.

A Diverse Palette of Piano Tones Depicting Timeless Traditions

The AP-750 offers the enjoyment of three grand piano tones—Berlin Grand, Hamburg Grand, and Vienna Grand—cherished by renowned musicians throughout the extensive history of piano performance. The sound of the Berlin Grand in particular, was developed in collaboration with the world renowned piano brand C. Bechstein, You can fully savor the C. Bechstein sound, characterised by elegant colour tones and the transparency of each note.

Immerse Yourself in a Vivid Acoustic Space, Embracing the Natural Resonance of the Entire Instrument

Instead of merely hearing the sound from the speakers, you can feel the delicate overtones and expansiveness as if the grand piano were right in front of you. Casio's unique acoustic mechanism secures pathways for sound throughout the instrument, producing the resonant tones characteristic of a grand piano. The AP-750 features a distinctive "Grandphonic Sound System," a 4-channel 8-speaker configuration. By carefully reproducing the resonance of a grand piano and ingeniously dispersing the elements of sound, it achieves a natural and immersive resonance, making it feel like the entire instrument is ringing. Incorporating a 2-channel 4-speaker system, the AP-550 also employs thoughtful design to ensure the sound naturally expands. Both the AP-750 and AP-550 feature a construction unique to Casio, allowing the top board to be opened, which enables performances with a bright, expansive sound reminiscent of opening the large lid of a grand piano. The slim AP-S450, equipped with a 2-channel 4-speaker system, positions two main speakers upward. Crafted to allow sound to flow from the speaker cases and stand, it delivers an unprecedented, expansive resonance. Moreover, all models undergo sound processing that ensures a natural, expansive quality even when listened to through headphones.

EXPERIENCE


CELVIANO focuses on the distinctive, expressive power and playability of grand pianos. With a hammer action and digital technology that ensures an authentic key touch, along with three pedals that capture subtle nuances, these digital pianos provide an unparalleled playing experience.

Seamless Integration of Musician and Instrument: A Masterful Artistry in Keyboard Touch Technology

Casio has thoroughly researched and independently developed the "Smart Hybrid Hammer Action Keyboard CELVIANO Edition," optimising it for the AP-750, AP-550, and AP-S450. This advanced key action meticulously considers the characteristics of grand piano key actions, significantly influencing the feel when playing. Combining physical mechanisms that utilise the weight of hammers, akin to grand pianos, with sophisticated digital technology that control the touch feeling and sound response for each key. This innovation allows for expressive performances that faithfully respond to the pianist's emotions, adapting to different playing ranges and techniques just like a grand piano. Moreover, the stability of the keyboard action has been enhanced to accommodate for the delicate nuances of advanced classical piano performances. The white keys feature a hybrid structure of spruce wood and resin, complemented by a natural ivory-like surface texturing. The black keys are finished with a matte like texture that reproduces the fine grain of ebony, providing a pleasant and natural playing experience in both texture and appearance.

Unlocking Expressive Possibilities From the Ground Up

Discover a new realm of expressive possibilities with the meticulously crafted pedals of the AP-750, AP-550, and AP-S450. These pedals are designed to capture the authentic feel and nuances of a grand piano. The damper pedal not only sustains the sound but faithfully reproduces changes in resonance, smoothly adjusting its effect based on how deep the pedal is pressed, allowing for delicate expressions in your musical performance. Additionally, the soft pedal, beyond controlling volume, now offers a more natural change in timbre, broadening the range of expressions in softer passages. In the AP-750 and AP-550, the pedals feature reinforced mechanical components, increased stability with two adjusters, and optimised pedal shape and spacing. This design allows for a deeper stroke when pressed. The AP-750 features continuously variable damper and soft pedals (the damper pedal on the AP-550 is continuously variable, and the soft pedal accommodates half-pedaling), providing the flexibility to freely express subtle nuances. Even the slim-bodied AP-S450 adopts a continuously variable damper pedal. This design allows for changes in lingering tones based on the depth of the pedal press, enabling delicate and nuanced musical expressions.

PLAYABILITY

The AP-750, AP-550, and AP-S450 redefine the piano experience, transcending the boundaries of conventional instruments.

A New Approach to Visualising Performance on the Piano

Introducing the "Visual Information Bar'' on the front panel, which lights up, allowing you to visually check your playing performance. As a metronome, it stylishly expresses beats through five light patterns, enabling you to feel the tempo and beat while your gaze is fixed on your hands or sheet music. Additionally, it graphically displays keystroke velocity and the amount of pedal depression. This visual representation allows you to observe nuances in your playing, such as the stability of variations in finger habits, the strength of repeated notes, and the timing and depth of pedal presses. It provides insights that might be challenging to discern solely through auditory confirmation. Moreover, this feature not only allows you to assess your performance but also facilitates objective evaluations and satisfying lessons during piano instruction. By visually and aurally analysing each other's performances, both teachers and students can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation. With Casio's unique functionality that visually captures performances, playing the piano becomes more than just a musical endeavor – it becomes a new and exciting way to engage with the instrument.
