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 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.
- 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.
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.
The timing of a grand piano’s sound varies subtly depending on which keys are being played, even when the keys are struck with the same force. To achieve optimal authenticity, Casio has installed appropriate settings for each of the three grand piano tones. The sound production timing can also be adjusted to suit the player.
GRAND PEDAL SYSTEM
By continuously sensing and detecting the position of the damper pedal, Casio’s Grand Pedal System enables fine-tuning of the damping volume and note length depending on the degree of pedal depression. In addition, the Half Pedal Position function permits adjustment of the depression position at which the damping effect comes into play according to the player’s preference. The Action Sound System’s Damper Noise reproduces even subtle operating sounds like that experienced with an acoustic grand piano.
