"Casio's genius collaboration with C. Bechstein provides an authentic wooden key touch which feels natural to play" - Laura Mvula, Ivor Novello Award Winning Artist.
AUTHENTICITY FROM THE FIRST TOUCH
The new Natural Grand Hammer Action keyboard features full-length, wooden keys. This revolutionary mechanism incorporates real hammers that follow the same path of motion as in a concert grand piano. Lift the lid and you can see even the hammers moving as you play. Going beyond what has been possible before, this new action allows faster note repetition than acoustic instruments whilst maintaining a true piano touch.
A TRUE GRAND
the response of a grand PIANO
To achieve the level of responsiveness of a grand piano, CASIO intensively researched the characteristics of traditional instrument designs. The result: a newly-developed hybrid mechanism based on exactly the same dimensions and proportions as a grand piano. All Grand Hybrids use real hammers that rise and fall when a key is pressed, to deliver the exact response of a concert grand.
using traditional materials
The comfort and confidence afforded by the feel of each key is of utmost importance. For this reason, the materials and manufacturing processes adopted to make the keyboard are exactly the same as those used for grand pianos. The highest quality wood (Austrian spruce, the same found in C. Bechstein Acoustic Pianos) is carefully chosen, dried, machined and finished to precise standards, providing a welcome and familiar touch.
THREE SOUNDS ONE PIANO
BERLIN, VIENNA, HAMBURG IN ONE
Every Grand Hybrid can emulate the sound of three prestigious European grand pianos:
A balanced, elegant sound. Ideal for playing impressionistic music.
A brilliant, rich sound. Loved for its wide range of expression.
An impressive low range. A warm tone that suits both soft and vigorous playing.
