Fortifying its place as a leader in the electronic musical instrument industry, Casio’s Celviano AP-270, as well as the Privia PX-770 and PX-870 offer a number of new features that will appeal to a variety of users, from beginners to advanced musicians. Casio’s latest models and full portfolio of electronic musical instruments were on display at the company’s booth (#5900) during Summer NAMM at Music City Center, from July 13-15, 2017.
“We are proud to launch the next generation of Celviano and Privia digital pianos, which appeal to musicians for their remarkable piano sounds and authentic piano feel,” said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instruments Division. “The new Celviano and Privia digital pianos deliver exceptional sound quality and are equipped with an abundance of new features, offering an enhanced performance for beginners and professionals alike.”
Casio’s new AP-270, Privia PX-770 and PX-870 boast a redesigned cabinet with all of the controls located on the side panel. These new models are equipped with a redesigned 88-key Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard with simulated ebony and ivory textured keys to reproduce the touch feeling of an acoustic piano while the weighted, scaled hammer action keyboard provides the depth and integrity of an acoustic piano.
