TOUCH – Your performance demands authenticity. It begins at the first touch.
The player’s movement is transformed into music with many important factors. The most tangible factor is the keys. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid delivers authenticity from the first touch. The revolutionary new Natural Grand Hammer Action keyboard is made with full-length wooden keys. Its new mechanism incorporates real hammers that follow the same path of motion as in a concert grand piano. When the lid is lifted, you can see the hammers in motion through a clear panel as you play. Going beyond a standard acoustic mechanism, this new action allows faster note repetition than acoustic pianos, while maintaining a true piano touch.
EXPERIENCE – The Grand Hybrid experience goes far beyond playing piano.
