Play a piano ready for the highest levels of performance. The Casio AP 470 digital piano is one of Casio's revolutionary new Celviano pianos. This range has blown musicians away with two 9-foot concert grand piano voices, sampled to perfection thanks to impressive AiR technology. These two tones give you the ideal piano for both classical and contemporary styles. Play every piece the way it was meant to sound.
Play with your heart. Your AP 470 will pick up on your every nuance and expression with an incredible dynamic range and string resonance. Your fortissimo will be powerful thanks to a 20W amplification system which recreates the spread of an acoustic by diverting the sound in different directions. This spread is increased even more by the opening acoustic lid. For quieter moments, plug in your headphones and practise in peace.
