Casio Celviano AP460 Home Digital Piano in Black
Casio's Celviano Range of pianos offer top of the line performance in both tone and playability; bridging the gap so that you get the true performance of an acoustic grand piano with the benefits that a digital piano can bring.
Not only that, but the Celviano Range has been designed with the style and elegance that you expect from a piano, and like a good piece of furniture, it will look fantastic in your living room or musical space.
The Celviano Digital Grand Pianos feature a new Tri-Sensor springless scaled hammer action, so that you have full control over dynamics and it will pick up every nuance of your performance. This is coupled with Casios excellent 4 layer stereo grand piano sound which offers a natural and expressive tone, fully reacting to the sensitivity of the keys being pressed.
The AP460 builds on the design of the Celviano AP260 with a larger cabinet containing a 4 speaker stereo set and an adjustable piano lid. It's stereo 5cm tweeters and 12cm woofers combined with dual 20 Watt amplifiers provide the power, depth and richness to satisfy the most demanding players. The Adjustable Piano lid gives the player a range of lightly muted and more open tones, just as you would get from lifting the lid of a real piano. The AP460 is an excellent choice for both the home environment and a medium sized performance space.
All built-in tones in the Celviano Pianos are created using AiR (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) Technology. The AiR processor utilizes grand piano samples recorded at four dynamics sampling to deliver grand piano sounds with long natural decays and remarkable expression.
AiR tones also feature the subtleties that form a piano's sound, including hammer response and something called natural string resonance which recreates the sound of the sympathetic strings when the damper pedal is raised. This gives the piano sounds it's classic rich tone and resonance.
