Secondly, they raised the level of detailed piano sound to match this essential grand piano feel.
Casio’s new Celviano Grand Hybrid, model GP-300, reproduces the finest nuances of the grand piano experience, both in sound and feel. Casio collaborated with elite piano maker, C.Bechstein, to create this new instrument. The Natural Grand Hammer Action is a real wooden piano keyboard, real piano keytops, all connected to a piano action that replicates the weight, workings and geometry of a grand piano. The nuances of a grand piano’s touch, the responsiveness, the repetition, the feedback – it is all real.
Casio’s newest piano sound engine is the AiR Grand Sound Source. The AiR Grand Sound Source recreates 3 legendary concert grand pianos, the Berlin Grand, the Hamburg Grand & the Vienna Grand. The Berlin Grand, produced in collaboration with C.Bechstein, faithfully recreates the sound and nuances of the C.Bechstein D282 concert grand piano. The same processes were then applied to create the Hamburg & Vienna concert grand pianos.
Casio has painstakingly researched and analysed the unique characteristics of the world’s finest grands to provide the experience of owning three of the finest. Features such as Natural Grand Hammer Action, 3 distinct concert grand piano sounds (from 26 total tones), a Hall Simulator that recreates the acoustics of numerous world-class performance venues leave nothing to be desired for ambitious piano playing.
