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.

Same mechanical principles as a grand piano including wooden, full-length keys that provides distinguished touch and responsiveness.

Hammer Action derived
from the response of a grand piano

To achieve the level of responsiveness of a grand piano, CASIO intensively researched the action of grand piano hammers. The result is a newly developed mechanism with the same principles as a grand piano. A real hammer rises when a key is pressed. Using precise measurements in conjunction with wooden keys, this mechanism delivers the exact response you would expect when playing a concert grand. Every nuance of the player’s touch is conveyed.

CASIO's new hammer mechanism accurately reproduces the motion of a hammer found on an acoustic grand piano.

Precision-made wooden keys,
faithful to traditional designs

The materials and manufacturing processes adopted to make the keyboard are those used for grand pianos. Higher-quality wood was carefully chosen, dried, machined and finished. The finish was completed at the same level as acoustic grand pianos, providing a welcome and familiar touch. The feel of these keys contributes to players’ comfort and confidence.
