Why Consider a Casio Celviano Piano?
We have mentioned it often on this site, that unless you are a die hard fan of other brands or have been playing the piano for many years, you should at least have a look at the Casio pianos before you decide to go ahead with any other brand.
The cost-to-features ratio offered makes the Casio digital pianos really attractive.
Casio now has a great line up of digital pianos, especially the Casio AP piano series. If you have always wanted to own a real piano but could not afford the cost, a Casio Piano from the Celviano AP series could be right for you.
Here are some of the important features and functions that are available on a Casio Celviano AP piano.
Elegant Design – An elegant and refined look, available in a brown rosewood or cherry finish, that would complement the decor of your room.
Superb Sound – Vastly improved sound source and samples provides all the rich resonance of a fine grand piano.
Authentic Piano Feel – A spring-less graded hammer action system that provides a keyboard touch that is similar to the one used by grand pianos.
128 note polyphony – Play the most difficult pieces, with high-speed passages, that require intensive damper pedal operations – all without any problem.
In addition you also find other features like Lesson play, Music Library, Digital Effects, and Metronome.
Things that Could be Better?
Connoisseurs will argue that the piano sounds are not of topmost quality and we agree with it to some extent. But the fact is that overall, the piano sounds are good and if you hear it through good headphones, the piano samples sound bit better.
There are very few buttons on a Celviano piano, and most of the functions on the piano can be selected using a combination of these buttons and the appropriate key on the piano. This can make it a bit difficult to remember the proper combinations until you have got a complete hang of all the functions. Until then, you will have to keep referring the user-manual.
The Casio AP220 Celviano piano is a great digital piano if you live in an apartment and want a compact piano that has nice piano sounds, minus the many other features which most digital pianos have. It is easy to assemble and is much cheaper than some of its counterparts. It may lack the finesse (only to some extent) but for the price you pay, the sounds on the Casio ap220 Celviano Digital Piano is very good.
If you are looking for more than just basic set of piano sounds and a better looking and more solid piano, then you can consider the Casio AP420 for more sounds, additional features and better sound/touch.

The Celviano ap-620 will give you the best of everything bundled in one powerful and aesthetic looking piano. Surprisingly for this package, things like pitch-bend and modulation wheel are missing, not a big deal if you are going to play the piano but it would have been a good addition. Compared to a Roland or a Yamaha digital piano, the keys are a bit lighter, which is not really a bad thing. Some people just prefer slightly lighter keys (they are weighted though).
The AP-620 costs more than the AP-420 but then you get several additional features like styles, more voice, SD slot, LCD screen, powerful amplifier and dedicated buttons for selecting most features. So if this is what you need, go for the Casio AP620 Celviano Digital Piano.
