“The Celviano digital piano provides everything desired to play a simple piano piece or compose a complete musical masterpiece, thus encouraging the beginner and inspiring the professional,” says Mike Martin, director of marketing, Electronic Musical Instruments Division. “The Celviano heirloom design and state-of-the art technology makes the digital piano a treasure for years to come.”

The Celviano models combine unprecedented sound quality and performance in a sleek, lightweight package. The new grand piano sound in the Celviano is comprised of four dynamic layers of stereo piano samples. When integrated with Casio’s Linear Morphing System, the Celviano delivers a more realistic sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. The models also feature a new Tri-Sensor 88-note scaled hammer action keyboard providing users with the weight, feel and resistance of a grand piano.

Equipped with 128-note polyphony, the Celviano models have the ability to handle the most demanding musical passages, to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without worry about dropping notes. In addition, an acoustic Resonance Effect simulates the sound of the dampers released off the strings by the sustain pedal, taking realism to a new level.

The perfect addition to any family – Celviano cabinet digital pianos come equipped with a piano bench, music stand and pedals, offering a complete piano experience featuring the sounds of grand piano heard throughout a home. The Celviano models will be available this spring with an MSRP of $899.99 – $1,399. For more information, visit www.casiousa.com.
