Leading musical instrument retailer and manufacturer Gear4music, has announced the launch of the Minster GDP-500 Digital Grand Piano.
The GDP-500 is the first in the company's new range of premium Minster Pianos, with more models set to be released later in the year.
With an ultra-realistic high-resolution sound source, and a beautiful gloss black finish, the GDP-500 is an impressive instrument that will prove a fantastic addition to any home or studio environment.
Priced at just Â£1,099.00, it's also one of the most affordable digital grand pianos on the market today.
Pianists will be impressed by 88 genuine weighted hammer action keys, ensuring solid playability and accurate response.
The real piano feel means that musicians can enjoy each of the 599 stunning voices, and over 200 accompaniment styles.
With further appointments including a 3 pedal board and 64 note polyphony, players of all abilities will be hard pushed to tell the difference between the GDP-500 and a conventional acoustic grand piano.
As well as having the best features of a traditional instrument, the Minster GDP-500 makes use of some of the latest technology too.
DSP effects and an on board mixer ensure that you can really get the most from your sound. An SD card slot allows for saving of your favourite compositions, as well as playback of MIDI files.
Musicians can also connect the GDP-500 to a computer via USB, allowing for control of advanced software based music solutions.
The Minster GDP-500 not only provides everything a demanding pianist could need, it caters for beginners too.
A chord dictionary allows for students to easily find the positioning they need, while on board lessons will easily see beginners through the basics and beyond.
Record and playback functionality lets the learner actually hear their progress, and where improvement is needed.
