Casio Celviano AP-700 Digital Console Piano
Casio Celviano AP-700 Digital Console PianoThe storied tradition of the piano, an instrument with a long history going back to the 1700s, lives on today in three superb pianos. CASIO exhaustively researched and analyzed the tonal characteristics of these three full concert grand pianos, made in Berlin, Hamburg, and Vienna. We drew upon the full range of our digital technologies to express the tone color of these grand pianos in the newly developed AiR Grand Sound Source. It is now possible to enjoy to the fullest the magnificent sound of these historic pianos, beloved by Liszt, Debussy, and other musical giants, in a single digital piano.
When speaking of the C. Bechstein piano, Claude Debussy declared, “Piano music should only be written for the Bechstein.” This history of C. Bechstein pianos begins with the company’s founding by Carl Bechstein in Berlin in 1853. Now, Casio has joined in collaboration with this renowned piano maker to develop the “Berlin Grand” tone, a balanced, elegant sound with a clearly defined shape. To create its exquisite clarity of tone and vibrancy, we analyzed the tone color of the ultimate C. Bechstein masterpiece, the D282. The resulting sound, which meets with the approval of even C. Bechstein master piano maker Werner Albrecht, has been incorporated into the CELVIANO AP-700 as “Berlin Grand.”
Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II, with a grand piano's unique sounding timing
The difference between the sound structures of a grand piano and a digital piano appears as a difference in timing, from the moment the instrument is played until the sound is audible. The new Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II responds by incorporating a system with three sensors that detect touches of the keys sequentially.
