PURE ACOUSTIC PERFECTION.
The GP-500 Grand Hybrid captures every nuance of a concert grand piano in an award-winning, stylish design. Thanks to its combination of digital innovation and time-honoured principles of acoustic piano manufacture, this instrument is recognised as the pinnacle of digital piano production.
To produce a refined sound and an accurate touch that is worthy of a class leader, Casio have collaborated with prestigious acoustic piano manufacturer, C. Bechstein. The result is the Celviano Grand Hybrid: an exquisite instrument which incorporates the best elements of an acoustic grand piano, such as a Natural Grand Hammer Action, with the unique benefits of perfect digital sound.
Natural Grand Hammer Action
At the heart of the GP-500 is the revolutionary Natural Grand Hammer Action, combining full-length wooden keys (manufactured using the same Austrian spruce as that used by C. Bechstein) with moving hammers to provide an authenticity of touch that is far beyond any other digital piano.
The GP-500 has added duplex scaling resonance, simulating the brilliance and tonal character of the largest concert grand pianos. Action noise can also be mixed with the piano, providing those extra elements of nuance that breathe life into piano music.
The unique ‘Concert Play’ feature gives you command of an entire symphony orchestra, with an expandable library of favourite classical pieces to play along to.
A six-speaker Grand Acoustic system delivers the power of an acoustic grand piano, whilst a Headphone Mode optimises the piano tone for silent practice.
Imagine having a wealth of historical pianos at your fingertips: perhaps those used by the great composers such as Chopin, Beethoven or Debussy. Scene Settings let you configure the Grand Hybrid to match the characteristics of these famous instruments, or design your own.
Using real acoustic measurements, the Hall Simulator recreates the ambience and character of 12 famous concert halls. Experience the thrill of listening to your performance in any of these unique acoustics.
USB Audio Recorder
All Grand Hybrids are equipped with USB Audio Record and Playback. This means you can make audio recordings of your performances and play back commercially-available backing tracks via USB memory stick.
