The jewel in the crown of the Casio piano range is the Celviano Grand Hybrid. The premise behind this instrument was to merge the finest elements of an acoustic piano’s authenticity with the benefits of innovative Casio digital sound technology. A unique collaboration with the esteemed acoustic grand piano manufacturer C. Bechstein, has resulted in a stunning hybrid instrument. Each Grand Hybrid is equipped with a Natural Grand Hammer mechanism, full-length, wooden grand piano keys and an exquisite selection of three world-renowned acoustic grand pianos tones.

Casio CELVIANO Grand Hybrid Pianos offer a full range of functions that provide meticulous support for music lessons such as recording functions, Hall Simulator, Headphone Mode, USB and MIDI connections and Line input and output connections.

Unlike acoustic instruments, no tuning is required and the keyboard mechanism does not require any adjustment, which can mean significant savings in terms of maintenance costs.
