Three Legendary Pianos. Their individual character and tone faithfully recreated.
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 analyzed 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.
Your performance demands authenticity. It begins at the first touch.
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.
Same mechanical principles as a grand piano including wooden keys that provides distinguished touch and responsiveness.
Hammer Action derived from the response of a grand piano
To achieve the level of responsiveness of a grand piano, CASIO intensively researched the action of grand piano hammers. The result is a mechanism with the same principles as a grand piano. Using precise measurements in conjunction with wooden keys, this mechanism delivers the exact response you would expect when playing a concert grand. Every nuance of the player’s touch is conveyed.
Precision-made wooden keys, faithful to traditional designs
The materials and manufacturing processes adopted to make the keyboard are those used for grand pianos. Higher-quality wood was carefully chosen, dried, machined and finished. The finish was completed at the same level as acoustic grand pianos, providing a welcome and familiar touch. The feel of these keys contributes to players’ comfort and confidence.
The Grand Hybrid experience goes far beyond playing piano.
Play a legendary space
Celviano Grand Hybrid includes a Hall Simulator featuring numerous world-class performance venues. Using advanced analysis and signal processing, CASIO has recreated the acoustic characteristics of renowned concert halls, opera houses, cathedrals and other performance spaces around the world. You can instantly select one of these settings, creating an immersive atmosphere for your performance..
Play with a symphony orchestra
Celviano Grand Hybrid’s Concert Play feature gives you the role of solo pianist with an orchestral performance. The sound system plays the orchestral part accompanying you. Works by Tchaikovsky, Pachelbel, Smetana and others are featured. The tempo of these pieces can be slowed down to facilitate practice.
Play a moment in time
The GP-510BP model has an additional feature allowing the player to design or select Scenes. You will enjoy customizing your own Scenes by selecting a type of piano, a Hall Simulation and any desired effects. CASIO has also created several inspirational preset Scenes. These thoughtfully designed examples let you interact with the history of piano music. Select the name of a famous composer, and you will be presented with an instrument customized to suit their music and a venue where their music might have been performed.
The Perfect Combination of Innovation and Tradition
For 40 years, CASIO’s vision has always been the same – creating musical instruments that everyone can enjoy playing. Some notable milestones include;
The Future of Tradition
The rich history of piano spans over 300 years. It has been embraced around the world as a vehicle for artistic expression. The piano’s design has evolved over time, but the fundamental structure is still true to tradition. As a modern musical instrument manufacturer, CASIO desired the development of an instrument that could bring traditional piano to a new level. CASIO’s expertise in digital technology made it possible to create a new world of instruments. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid is a futuristic musical instrument with legacy of classic piano that will satisfy the most demanding piano purists.
Sound Development in Collaboration
The Berlin Grand sound was developed in collaboration with C. Bechstein. Casio sought a clear, balanced and elegant sound for CELVIANO Grand Hybrid. The D.282, C. Bechstein’s ultimate masterpiece, is the model Casio intensively studied to achieve the goal. Mr. Albrecht, CTO and Master Piano Maker at C. Bechstein, visited Casio R&D to supervise the sound development process through the final modification.
About C. Bechstein
Since Carl Bechstein founded the Pianoforte production facility in Berlin in 1853, the name C. Bechstein has stood for the highest class of upright and grand pianos. C. Bechstein pianos have been appreciated by many famous composers and artists for their finest quality of sound and touch for many years. In the 21st Century, C. Bechstein is still recognized as one of the world’s leading piano manufacturers.
