THREE LEGENDARY PIANOS

Celviano Grand Hybrid reproduces even 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.

  • Berlin Grand - A Balanced elegant sound. Ideal for playing impressionistic music. Notable for its clear, ringing tone across the entire range.
  • Hamburg Grand - A brilliant, rich sound. Loved by pianists for its wide range of expression. Well suited for various playing styles and genres.
  • Vienna Grand - 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.

SOUND DEVELOPMENT IN COLLABORATION

The Berlin Grand sound was developed in collaboration with C. Bechstein. Casio sought a clear, balanced and elegant sound for the Celviano Grand Hybrid piano. D282, C. Bechstein;s ultimate masterpiece, is the model Casio intensively studied to achieve the goal. Mr. Albrecht, Service Director and Master Piano Make at C. Bechstein, visited Casio R&D to supervise the sound development process throughout the final stages of production.

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 recognised as one of the world's leading piano manufacturers.

NATURAL GRAND HAMMER ACTION KEYBOARD

For an authentic piano touch, Casio has developed a new keyboard system called the “Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard”. This keyboard system features full-length wooden keys as well as hammers that follow the same path of motion as in a concert grand piano. Celviano Grand Hybrid features keys that are manufactured using exactly the same materials as an acoustic grand piano. Careful attention is paid not only to finish of the surfaces of the keys but also to the quality of the wood employed for the key beds. This combination of an outstanding action mechanism and superior-quality key materials further enhances the sensation of playing an acoustic grand piano.

1. Original Tri-Sensor action mechanism

The core of Celviano Grand Hybrid’s keyboard performance is created by Casio's proprietary action mechanism. This mechanism includes a hammer movement modeled from a grand piano and three sensors, which accurately capture a performer's expression from the keys. Since there are no physical strings, Casio's action is able to exceed the performance characteristics of a grand piano, providing superior playability that enables pianists to perform such actions as trills and repetitive notes with ease.

2. Keyboard surface materials

The use of acrylic for the white keys and phenol for the black keys — the same materials that modern grand pianos employ. This creates a welcome and familiar touch. Pianists will feel comfortable and confident on the keys of Celviano Grand Hybrid.

3. Fulcrum distance from keys

The position of the fulcrum with respect to the keys is exactly the same as with a grand piano. This contributes to stable playing performance, since the touch is never heavier or lighter depending on the position at which a finger strikes a key.
 

FEATURES

CONCERT PLAY

Playing with an orchestra is an extraordinarily thrilling event. Concert Play feature demonstrates orchestral performance for a pianist to enjoy an experience of playing as a soloist accompanied by a full orchestra. 15 pieces of music are built in. When you practice, a convenient playback function offers capabilities of play, pause, fast-forward, rewind and A-B segment repeat. Using a Slow Mode, the tempo of these pieces can be slowed to 80% of normal speed as needed.

AUDIO RECORDER

Celviano Grand Hybrid pianos have the ability to record performances directly to USB flash drive as stereo audio files (44.1 kHz, stereo .WAV format). Recordings can be stored or played back on a computer or transferred to CDs or other media. The piano’s built-in full playback function permits use of such features as pause, fast-forward, rewind and A-B segment repeat.

MIDI RECORDER

This function enables players to record their own performances freely in the Celviano Grand Hybrid’s memory. It helps users improve their playing skills by reviewing their own performances objectively afterwards.

Celviano Grand Hybrid includes 60 piano pieces in its “Music Library”. The scores for these pieces are included and Celviano Grand Hybrid’s features are ideal for learning. Left and Right hand parts can be practiced separately. Tempo can be changed and an A-B segment repeat allows you to practice a section of the piece. Each piece has a selected preset tone but players can enjoy their own choice from the Berlin Grand, Hamburg Grand and Vienna Grand tones.

DUET MODE

The keys to the left and right of center on the keyboard can be set to the same tonal range. This Duet Mode is convenient when two players, such as a parent and child or a teacher and student, practice together.

LAYER AND SPLIT

The layer function enables pianists to overlap two types of tones, while the split function lets them separate tones into lower and higher blocks.
