Description



    Overview

    The Casio Celviano AP-260 digital pianos has been refined for those who demand an authentic grand piano experience. The traditional design houses stereo grand piano sounds and redesigned keyboard action. Utilizing a tri-sensor spring-less 88 note scaled hammer action, every nuance and detail of your performance is captured. A 4 layer stereo grand piano sound delivers a natural, expressive and dynamic piano experience.

    Key Features

    Piano Sound
    The grand piano sounds in the AP-260 deliver an unprecedented level of realism and expression. Four dynamic levels of stereo piano samples are integrated with Casio’s proprietary Linear Morphing System, for a grand piano sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. For added realism, the AP-260 simulates the sound of open strings when the dampers are raised by the pedal using Acoustic Resonance DSP.

    Education Features
    The AP-260 features a total of 18 built-in tones, with the ability to layer two sounds or split the keyboard to allow a bass sound in the left hand. It has a built-in library of 60 songs that can be practiced at any tempo utilizing the dual headphone outputs or the internal speaker system. Celviano’s Duet Mode allows student and teacher to practice at the keyboard simultaneously.

    Advanced Technology
    To complete the piano experience, the AP-260 features 128 notes of polyphony, enough horsepower to the most demanding musical passages and the ability to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without worry of dropped notes. In addition the AP-260 can connect effortlessly to your computer via USB without the need to install drivers.

    Concert Play
    High-quality audio data recordings of 10 live orchestra performances are installed. Pianists can play along with recordings and enjoy the feeling of participating in a magnificent performance. Musical scores of the concerts are bundled.

    Powered by AiR
    Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR (Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator) Sound Source Casio’s new AiR technology, redefines the Celviano digital piano experience with richer and more genuine sounds. The AiR sound source enables the new Celviano models to deliver first-class realism and detail by providing damper resonance, which enhances the sounds of the dampers lifting off the strings when pushing on the sustain petal. Casio’s AiR technology also compensates for the speed at which hammers strike strings at different velocities and key ranges, imperative for those who crave the authentic sounds and feel of a traditional grand piano.

    USB MIDI
    Casio continues the tradition or providing “class compliant” USB connectivity on Celviano digital pianos. This allows Celviano to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Celviano digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad by using Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money Good: The keyboard is not a synthetic ivory but a synthetic ebony, which feels pretty solid. The weighted key adds a nice touch to the playing. The sensor picks up the speed and intensity of key action quite well. The full-size pedal gives confident action. Bad: Sound kinda fizzes out rather than provide a shade of diminishing tones when the key is released. Final thought: If you are after an acoustic piano but can't get one due to space, weight, can't play at night and budget then this one is definitely one to consider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Piano - JB Hi-Fi Amazing Service I purchased the piano for our three children to start learning and practicing at home. The piano is well built, sound great and perfect for what we needed and especially given the price at J.B Hi-Fi was significant cheaper than their competitors to start with, getting a discount voucher sealed the deal. J.B Hi-Fi Service was amazing and it was delivered the day after I ordered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great at the start... For the first year, it was amazing! But now the pedals have started to get clicky and the keys are sticking :(
