The sleek, compact design of the AP-S450 embodies the ethos of Casio’s new Celviano Slim series: Redefining Tradition Through Innovation. Packed with cutting-edge features, the AP-S450 digital piano comes in three exquisite colours that add sophistication to any setting, including a new luxurious Rosewood finish in addition to the classic Black and White. Each model features a reflective front panel reminiscent of the timeless elegance found in a polished acoustic grand piano.
Smart Hybrid Hammer Action Keyboard
Casio's new Smart Hybrid Hammer Action represents a breakthrough in digital piano technology, seamlessly merging the authentic feel of an acoustic piano with the versatility of a modern digital instrument.
Crafted with precision using resin and Austrian spruce wood, the same materials as an acoustic piano, this innovative key action combines the nuanced touch of acoustic piano keys with smart sensor technology, providing players with a responsive and expressive playing experience.
2 Concert Grand Piano Tones
The AP-S450 boasts 25 tones in total, including 2 Concert Grand piano tones: Hamburg (newly sampled for this model) and New York. The Hamburg tone exudes richness and lyrical warmth, while the New York tone offers a brighter sound, characterised by resonant overtones.
New 4-Speaker System
The AP-S450 features an advanced 4-speaker system strategically positioned for optimal sound projection, producing an immersive experience that belies the instrument’s slimline dimensions.
Supported by two channels of amplification, it delivers a seamless and dynamic audio experience.
New Pedal Design
The AP-S450 has three pedals, providing the same functionality as a traditional grand piano, including a continuously variable damper pedal. This precise control unlocks possibilities for the most demanding performance techniques, elevating your musical expression to new heights.
Visual Information Bar and Touch Controls
New touch controls offer quick access to the most common functions but disappear when not in use to minimise distractions. The Visual Information Bar displays key velocity, damper pedal depth, or a silent metronome, offering insights into your playing for more productive and informed practice sessions.
Bluetooth Audio and MIDI Capabilities
Seamlessly integrate the AP-S450 into your digital world with Bluetooth Audio and MIDI. Stream audio from your smart device and play along to your favourite songs. Connect to online tutorials (including free lessons from the Casio Music Academy) or use Casio’s free Music Space app to control the functions and settings of the AP-S450 wirelessly.
