Casio Celviano GP-310
Price Range: $2,500-$4,999
Casio’s recently upgraded pianos from the Celviano Grand Hybrid Digital Collection are an advanced pianist’s dream. The GP-310, produced in cooperation with the legendary European piano maker, C. Bechstein, comes as close as possible to sounding like an acoustic grand with six dynamic speakers, triple sensors and a sampled library of instrument voices that includes three of the world’s most highly regarded grand pianos from Hamburg, Berlin and Vienna. In performance it also delivers the authenticity of an acoustic grand piano with its revolutionary Natural Grand Hammer Action keyboard. Full-length wooden concert grand piano keys made of Alpine spruce send a hammer along the same vertical path as a typical grand with the same weight and pivot points. The result is a true, unvarnished gravity-directed grand piano touch.
