Minster GDP-500 Digital Grand Piano Launched
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.
Jonathan Meager, Marketing Manager at Gear4music.com, commented, "we're really proud of the Minster GDP-500 Digital Grand Piano - it's a fantastic combination of stunning grand piano looks, traditional piano sounds and feel as well as the best in modern technology."
"We've paid particular attention to the key bed, which features real weighted, hammer action keys just like an acoustic piano."
"Priced at Â£1,099 we feel the GDP-500 gives musicians opportunity to access a realistic grand piano without the hassles of tuning and maintenance."
"Considering the quality of the features on board, I don't think there is a better Digital Grand Piano at this price point."
"We can?t wait to release more Minster pianos in the near future."
The Minster GDP-500 Digital Grand Piano is available throughout Europe.
UK RRP has been confirmed at Â£1,099.00, including a one year warranty.Posted on 7 Jul 2011 10:02 to category : Instruments News
