The perfect form in sound and design : For those who want something more from their piano, the CEVIANO AP-420 is the perfect choice. The elegant, stylish and modern appearance of the AP-420 is a source of inspiration to any player. Combined with versatile modern features such as USB interface, SD Card slot and line-out, the CELVIANO is highly recommended as the ideal training instrument for piano pupils and sutdents.

The Celviano line of pianos has been refined for those who demand an authentic grand piano experience. The new AP-420’s traditional design houses new stereo grand piano sounds and enhanced “Ivory Touch” keyboard. Utilizing a new tri-sensor spring-less 88 note scaled hammer action, every nuance and detail of your performance is captured. A new 4 layer stereo grand piano sound delivers a natural, expressive and dynamic piano experience.

The AP-420 features a total of 16 built-in tones, with the ability to layer two sounds or split the keyboard to allow a bass sound in the left hand. Its built-in SD card slot allows you to load and save song files and the dual 20W speaker system delivers a sound that will resonate through your home. With 128 notes of polyphony, USB MIDI, Duet Mode, 1/4” audio outputs and more, Celviano’s advanced technology and sound will make the AP-420 the perfect addition to any home.

16 AiF tones

The excellent AiF Sound source produces 16 top-quality tones, which truly come into their own in both classic piano repertoire and many other genres.

AiF Linear Morphing

The innovative AiF Sound Source technology produces top-quality tones perfectly suited to both classical piano music and other genres and enables gentle transitions between individual samples and dynamic levels. Complex stereo recordings from a top-quality concert piano (samples) with four dynamic levels provide a particularly authentic sound and allow you to play across various intermediate stages from piano to forte without any sound discolouration or audible leaps.

128-voice polyphony

Guarantee an absolutely first-class piano sound. The expansion of the range of voices has made interpreting complex works a true pleasure and lets you play sweeping chords and make extensive use of the damper pedal.

"Tri-Sensor" scaled hammer-action keyboard

Tri-Sensor scaled hammer-action keyboardPiano feeling: The scaled hammer-action keyboard with 88 touch response, weighted keys is based on the keyboard of a concert piano and provides an authentic playing experience. A third sensor in the keyboard allows players to use particularly fast techniques without the notes sounding unnaturally cut off.

Sequencer (recorder)

With the sequencer (2 track/1 song), you can record your own ideas quickly and easily in real-time (capacity: 5,000 notes).

Two piano setting keys

Piano sound tailored to your own taste: The piano setting key switches to grand piano sound at the touch of a button. Two settings are available: "classic" for a soft, discreet sound and "modern" with a more lighter, brighter character.

High-quality DSP effects

High-quality DSP effectsThe AP-420 digitally reproduces the high-quality sound of a top concert grand piano complete with first-class reverb effects. The simulation of the resonating strings that is provided by the "Acoustic Resonance" CASIO effect rounds the sound experience off perfectly.

60 songs

Listen, sing along, play along: 60 top quality songs are stored on your AP-420.

8 digital effects

Live before an audience or at home in the living room: The sound diversity of your keyboard is enhanced by 4 reverb / 4 chorus effects.

88 Keys

The scaled hammer-action with 88 touch response weighted keys are based on the grand piano keyboard and make for an authentic playing feel.

Ivory touch keyboard

Both an audible and visual delight: The refined, matt keys with ivory touch not only look sophisticated and high quality, but provide a comfortable playing surface and additional stability to prevent your fingers from sliding. Enjoy a realistic playing experience!

Duet function

Ideal for lessons: the new duet functions allows teachers and pupils to play parallel to each other. The AP-420 can be divided into two keyboard areas, which can be transposed individually.

PANEL-Lock

Safe: With the PANEL-Lock function, the control panel is protected from unintentional moves while playing.

Metronome

Keep to the beat: The integrated metronome helps you keep to the rhythm.

2 headphone connections

Duet delight: two headphone connections are available.

3 pedals

The AP-420 features a 3-pedal unit with expanded damper capability.

Powerful speaker system

Impressive sound: The powerful two-way system with four speakers and 2 x 20 watts of output power ensures an exhilarating sound delivery. The sound is not only projected in the direction of the player but also to the rear or downwards, depending on the model. This creates a three-dimensional and more natural sound.

SD card slot

The innovative SD memory medium offers a simple but limitless way to expand the internal song memory of the AP-420.

USB Plug & Play/Song expansion

The USB/MIDI connection enables further Midfile songs to be loaded into the internal memory via the "Song expansion". The memory capacity is 65 KB, enabling up to 1 song to be saved.
