The Casio GP-500 Digital Piano is part of the Celviano Grand Hybrid range and packs in some incredible features including 88 full length wooden keys, three European piano tones, a grand acoustic speaker system, Hall simulator and more. As with all in the Grand Hybrid range, the GP-500 also comes with a Casio 5-year warranty as testimony to the superb build quality.
Natural grand piano feel
The GP-500 features Casio's flagship Natural Grand Hammer Action keyboard that combines full-length wooden keys crafted from the finest Austrian spruce - as used by the C. Bechstein Piano company. This revolutionary keyboard system uses real hammers to provide a level of authenticity and touch that will not fail to impress even the most accomplished of pianists.
The finest Grands
Every Casio Grand Hybrid can emulate the qualities of three prestigious European grand pianos - Berlin, Vienna and Hamburg. Each have their own distinct qualities:
- Berlin: A balanced, elegant sound. Ideal for playing impressionistic music
- Vienna: A brilliant, rich sound. Loved for its wide range of expression
- Hamburg: An impressive low range. A warm tone great for both soft and vigorous playing
In addition, the GP-500 contains 32 additional instruments that can be split and layered to create some truly wonderful performances.
Grand Acoustic Speaker System
Do deliver a natural projection and to accurately convey the character of the AiR grand sound engine, the GP-500 uses a grand acoustic speaker system. This powerful but discreet system can help fill a room with sound without sounding forced. The speakers themselves are not visible so as to not get in the way of the elegant cabinet.
The speaker system really comes into its own when you activate any of the built in digital effects to create the illusion of playing in one of 12 concert halls.
Duplex Scaling Resonance
The GP-500 has a feature called Duplex scaling resonance that adds some extra character to the piano sounds. Action noise can also be mixed with the piano simulating the sounds that a grand piano can make other than what is intended - this adds another layer of incredible realism and is sure to impress.
Casio 5 year warranty
Such is the build quality of the Casio Celviano Grand Hybrid Piano range that Casio have included a 5-year warranty once you register your purchase with them.
