Our pianos and our prices will make you smile. . . but you'll need to visit our showroom first. Price quotes (on new pianos) cannot be provided by email or over the phone as this is a policy of the quality manufacturers we represent.

The very latest in hybrid piano technology comes from Casio in their new Celviano Grand Hybrid digital pianos.  What makes them hybrids?  Casio collaborated with famed German piano maker, C.Bechstein to create both new sound and action technology.  The action pairs a real wooden key and a grand piano action with the AiR Grand Sound Source.

The sound and feel must be experienced to be appreciated.  This is a blockbuster product because of the value even among high-end digital pianos from other famous brands.  Visit us to learn more.


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 song.

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.

Polyphony
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.

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

Headphones X 2
Possibility to connect standard headphones. When headphones are connected, no sound will be released through the instrument’s speakers.

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

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