SOUND

AiR Grand Sound Source

Three legendary pianos -

Their individual character and tone faithfully recreated.

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.

AiR Grand Sound Source

Casio’s AiR Grand Sound

Source is designed to convey every

aspect of the grand piano sound.

Damper Resonance

Duplex Scale

Open String Resonance

Improved resonance system

Resonance system of the current PRIVIA and CELVIANO models generates damper and string resonance sound for each of 88 keys.

Improved resonance system

More bright and resonating sound due to the addition of the open string resonance. The result is a much more natural sonority. Additionally the duplex scale brings more authenticity to the sound.

Damper Pedal

Press the damper pedal, and hear the sound of the felt as it lifts away from the strings.

Grand Acoustic System

The Grand Acoustic System.

Casio's exclusive and innovative technology reproduces 

the subtle nuances of the world's finest grand pianos.

Ordinary digital pianos

Due to the conventional loudspeaker arrangement the sound spreads back and forth - similar to an upright piano, but not comparable with a grand piano. 

Grand Piano 

The sound radiation of a Grand Piano within its nearfield is mainly up and down.

CELVIANO Grand Hybrid

Using an exclusive six-speaker amplification system, CELVIANO Grand Hybrid recreates the three-dimensional sound field that an acoustic grand piano generates.

TOUCH

Wooden Grand Piano Keys

The new “Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard”

for the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid features keys manufactured

using exactly the same materials as acoustic grand piano keys.

High-quality keyboard materials 

The keyboard is made of the same high-quality Austrian spruce as keyboards in C. Bechstein grand pianos. Its surface (acrylic and phenol) creates a comfortable fingertip fit.

Grand Hammer Action

The “Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard”

contains also an action mechanism with a dynamic

structure equivalent to that of a grand piano. 

Dynamic Characteristics 

The dynamic characteristic is the dynamic force that can be felt on the finger while pushing the key. Changes in the weight placed by the fingers are precisely reconciled with a grand piano. 

Grand Hammer Action

The revolutionary keyboard is made with full length

wooden keys and a hammer action for ultimate authenticity

mechanical structure

For the “Natural Grand Hammer Action” the weight and the mechanism of a Grand Piano were precisely recreated. The structure is 100% designed for a digital piano – the necessity of mechanical maintenance is drastically reduced.

Same position design
Same physical characteristic of the hammer

Experience

Concert Play

CELVIANO Grand Hybrid’s Concert Play

feature gives you the role of a solo

pianist with an orchestral performance.

Play with a symphony orchestra

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.

Expanded Concert Play Contents

Listening to and accompanying songs downloaded from the internet using ordinary USB flash memory is also possible. 

Hall Simulator

CELVIANO Grand Hybrid includes a

Hall Simulator featuring numerous

worldclass performance venues.

Scene Setting

The GP-500BP model has an additional feature

allowing the player to design or select scenes.

Play a moment in time

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.

Example of scence „Debussy“ 

When you want to play Debussy's tune, select the setting named "DEBUSSY". The GP-500BP will automatically set.

GP-500BP

Acoustic sophistication meets digital excellence

The GP-500 is the revolutionary new model from CASIO, capable of producing the most subtle nuances of the world’s most respected pianos. The landmark Natural Grand Hammer Action keyboard is made with full-length, wooden keys for ultimate authenticity. Add numerous next-generation functions such as Concert Play mode which gives you the role of a solo pianist within an orchestral performance and the Grand Hybrid experience goes far beyond playing piano. 

Features

Technical Specifications

Layer

This function layers two timbres, such as soft piano sounds combined with bowed string instruments, perfectly suited for ballads as well as slow and romantic songs.

Split

Possibility of dividing the keyboard into two zones playing differing timbres, e. g. bass with your left hand and piano or vibraphone with your right hand when playing jazz or swing.

Duet mode

This feature is designed, just like “Split”, to divide the keyboard into two zones. However, in this case, the range and the timbre are identical. This feature allows two musicians to play a piano duet or to practice together on one instrument.

Transpose function

The transpose function shifts the scale on the keyboard by a set interval, e.g. so that an F would be played with the C-key.

Octave shift

This setting shifts the octaves on the keyboard to the more comfortable middle zone when playing pieces of music which require the musician to play on the very low or high zone of the keyboard.

256-note polyphony (max.)

Number of voices (tones) that a musical instrument can generate at the same time. Polyphony reflects a digital instrument’s capability. This is particularly significant when playing on an advanced level, using the pedals or using several timbres at the same time.

Touch response

Enables dynamic playing by differing sound intensity and sound behaviour in response to the keystroke. A light, slow stroke sounds soft and gentle while a hard stroke sounds loud and powerful.

Damper Resonance

The nuances generated by pressing the damper pedal are authentically replicated.

Lid-Simulation

The Lid Simulator simulates the different sound characteristics (brighter/duller) when playing with an open or closed piano lid. There are four simulation levels to choose from depending on personal taste: open, removed, half open or closed.

Brilliance

Digital effect that is used especially with piano timbres; the sound becomes brighter and more powerful (brilliance).

Chorus

Digital effect used to double the timbre, making the sound more vibrant, broader and much livelier. This effect is used especially for digital piano or organ timbres.

DSP Effects

Digital signal processor; provides high-quality effects and sound shaping.

Concert Play

Audio recording function

The audio recording function enables the user to record in professional CD quality onto a USB storage medium or SD card (depending on the instrument). The recording can be burnt or played back on every common medium.

Metronome

The metronome keeps the beat in the preset time signature as an orientation guide for tempo.

USB flash memory port (storage medium)

Port used to connect customary USB storage media to your instrument for the purpose of data transfer.

LC display with backlit

Headphones (2x)

Possibility to connect standard headphones. When headphones are connected, no sound will be released through the instrument’s speakers.

Line-In (L/Mono,R)

Input (L/R with standard sockets) to connect an audio source with line level (e.g. another instrument or sound card) to an instrument.

Line-Out (L/Mono, R)

Audio output on line level to plug the instrument into other professional devices such as PA or mixer console.

MIDI (In, Out)

Input and output socket for 5-pin MIDI-plugs to connect MIDI compatible devices to each other.

GP-400BK

Perfect combination of innovation and tradition.

The GP-400 is the latest - and the most elegant - model in the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid lineup. Like the GP-300 and the GP-500 comes the GP-400 with the three historically popular grand piano sounds and the keyboard is made of the same high-quality Austrian spruce as keyboards in C. Bechstein grand pianos. The new look and haptic makes you feel like playing an ordinary piano.

GP-300BK

Refined Sound, Accurate Touch, New Experience

Like the GP-500, the GP-300 reproduces the finest nuances of the grand piano sound experience. 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 26 tones, a Hall Simulator that recreates the acoustics of numerous world-class performance venues leave nothing to be desired for ambitious piano playing.
