Smart Hybrid Hammer Action Keys for Authentic Touch
A piano needs to feel right under your fingertips. Casio developed their Smart Hybrid Hammer Action Keys to provide the subtle dynamics and response of a grand piano action. The keys have a textured feel and feature a spruce and resin composite construction that replicates the individual behavior of an acoustic piano's hammers on each key.

The rich, complex nine-foot Hamburg instrument delivers a majestic presence with remarkable versatility, while the brilliant New York variant provides a clear, singing voice for a different personality. Damper and string resonance add the natural bloom and character of the original instruments. With 26 total high-fidelity sounds including essential electric pianos, organs, strings and more, the Celviano AP-550 digital piano offers a world of inspiration.
Visual Information Bar Guides Technique & Fuels Creativity
As you play the AP-550, keep your eyes on the Visual Information Bar. This display comes alive to enhance your practice and performance, as a metronome, it pulses to the beat with adjustable time signatures and patterns. Key and pedal indicators help refine technique by showing strike velocity and damper depth, while visualizations also react to music from the piano or Bluetooth devices. The bar can also disappear when not needed so you can focus entirely on the keys.
Sleek Cabinetry Houses Powerful Amplification
Within the AP-550's elegant console cabinet, a 40W, four-speaker amplification system envelops you in the rich piano sound. Discrete amplifiers and specialized resin-core speakers located beneath the lid project upward for the player as well as outward to fill the room. The sliding key cover protects the keyboard when not in use, while the top lid opens for a more immersive experience. Sit at the height-adjustable bench positioned perfectly for the keyboard and pedals.
For pianists seeking the acoustic grand mystique without sacrificing space, the Celviano AP-550 is an inspired choice. Its authentic keyboard feel and world-class piano tones will continually reveal new dimensions of your musicality. This digital piano invites a lifetime of artistic joy.
