The Celviano AP-550 delivers a traditional acoustic piano experience empowered by Casio’s musical innovation. The AP-550 is much more than a digital piano; It is a thoughtful fusion of design and musical expression which will inspire your best performances for years to come. Take in the AP-550’s beauty for a moment, open the sliding key cover, and raise the top lid. See your hands reflected on the front panel, and feel the textured keys at your fingertips. Now simply close your eyes and play, and smile as your notes greet your ears, sounding even better than you expected.

The AP-550’s brand-new 9-foot Hamburg concert grand piano Tone delivers a sought-after pinnacle of musical expression. Captured using dozens of exceptional microphones and meticulously matched to the AP-550’s keys and speaker system, this stunning piano tone is incredibly rich, detailed, and versatile. Damper and string resonance add the natural “bloom” of a full-size grand, along with subtle mechanical sounds that complete the sonic atmosphere of one of the world’s most coveted and majestic pianos. In addition to the Hamburg grand, the AP-550 also boasts a distinct New York variant of the same marque, voiced with the same painstaking attention to detail. This brilliant recreation completes a tapestry of the most famous acoustic pianos ever played. In your hands, it represents a completely different piano personality that will take your playing in new directions. The AP-550’s 26 onboard Tones also cover essential instruments like electric pianos, organs, strings and more, inviting a lifetime of musical exploration.

The Celviano Edition Smart Hybrid Hammer Action keys deliver a gratifying touch-to-sound connection, drawing you ever deeper into the immersive feel of playing a concert grand. These award-winning keys have been refined to harmonise not only with the instrument’s sound source, but also with its unique cabinetry and acoustic structure. Made from a combination of Spruce and resin, they provide the dynamic and natural response you'd expect from a well-regulated grand piano, including replicating the individual hammer behaviour of each of the 88 individual keys. Using fine-grained Spruce as opposed to coarser-grained wood adds resilience, density, balance, and a familiar and stately aesthetic. Advanced damping materials make the keys whisper-quiet, and the playable surfaces are subtly textured to provide extra comfort and confidence. Select Tones and adjust various settings with the illuminated touch sensor controls on the left-hand panel. While playing, these controls vanish in order to provide a natural, distraction-free piano experience. Simply touch the panel to activate them again.

Get comfortable on the included adjustable bench, adjust the volume, and let the AP-550’s four-speaker amplification system envelop you with natural, evocative, and powerful sound. Rich and clear at any level, the AP-550’s speakers are an integral part of its piano authenticity. Two discrete amplifiers and four resin-core speakers simultaneously project sound upwards from beneath the lid, towards the player, and downwards, mimicking the audible behaviour of an acoustic grand. Connect headphones to keep it all to yourself, with an automatic Headphone Mode accentuating bass levels at lower listening volumes. The AP-550’s advanced Hall Simulation places your dream piano in your choice of four dream venues, be it an NYC club, a Berlin concert hall, or a British stadium. Add the Surround effect to place yourself right at centre stage, enjoying your chosen piano and ambience from all sides.

Above the keys is the Visual Information Bar, a unique and innovative visualiser that reacts to and empowers your playing. As a metronome, it facilitates practice by displaying a pulsing beat in your choice of patterns. By displaying playing strength and pedal depth, it also helps teachers to better help their students to refine their technique. It can even react to incoming Bluetooth audio, providing beautiful and customizable visualisation to match any mood. The Visual Information Bar can also be disabled, keeping the front panel distraction-free as you play.

With a piano this inspiring, you’ll find musical ideas flowing faster than ever, leading to those inevitable “I wish I’d recorded that” moments. The AP-550’s new Instant RePlayer allows you to go back in time and reclaim your best performance. At the touch of a button, you can immediately hear the last few minutes of your performance, even if you forgot to begin recording. As you review your playing, the Visual Information Bar serves as a timeline, allowing you to pinpoint the musical memory you want to revisit.

The AP-550’s generously-sized pedals are based closely on the design and operation of grand piano pedals. Freedom of expression is preserved with a continuously variable damper pedal and two-level soft pedal, allowing you to select your desired amount of sustain and soft effects at any given time. The AP-550 is a graceful and luxurious addition to any space in your choice of Black, White, and striking Rosewood finishes. With its handsome cabinetry, gentle curves, and thoughtful details such its reflective front panel and gold-trimmed soft-close key cover, the AP-550 lends traditional piano elegance in a fraction of the space of a full-size grand. The included WU-BT10 Bluetooth Audio and MIDI Adapter opens up a whole world of wireless communication with your favourite apps. Use the Casio Music Space app to adjust your piano's settings, view and annotate sheet music, work with audio files, and much more. With Bluetooth audio, the AP-550 becomes a powerful, rich, and clear speaker system that easily fills any room, and begs you to play along.
