The Casio AP470 is designed to provide an authentic digital alternative to an acoustic piano. Perfectly accustomed to a beginner or intermediate player, will bring out the very best potential for fulfilling musical expression for even the most ambitious player. Although slightly larger than the AP270, the added size delivers a bigger sound with a speaker system three times as powerful plus an additional opening lid giving a grand piano feel for enhanced clarity.
Enhanced Piano Tone
The AP470 brings the very best in your potential by offering two new grand piano sounds and an additional 20 tones. Grand piano sound 1 is a European style emulating rich and resonant sounds expressing a multitude of tonal contrast seen in classical styles. Grand piano sound 2 is an American style perfect for Jazz and Pop with its own tonal colouration.
A new feature is the Hall Simulator. Placing your piano in a virtual concert space, you sound like your playing in some of the most famous venues in the world including a French cathedral.
The AP470 now features an acoustic opening lid just like an acoustic grand piano. Giving a wider sound projection and more power overall volume. For quiet practice, there is the option to use the improved headphone mode. The sound is remixed to sound more natural and lifelike through headphones making silent practice a lot more enjoyable.
Incredibly Realistic Feel
The authentic touch and response are just like an acoustic grand piano allowing for fast repetition of notes. The newly refined texture of the 88 ebony and ivory keys have an incredibly realistic feel and even reduce slippage, ensuring you'll always play your best.
The scaled action in the piano supports your playing developing good technique. The AP470 even recreates the mechanical sounds of grand piano keys, drawing you deeper into the piano experience.
There is a duet mode splitting the keyboard into two equal pitch ranges allowing the student and teacher to sit side by side at the same time.
