🥰Hi all! Welcome to our second battle of the brand! A series of posts where we put two amazing pianos against each other and compare which one is better in certain aspects!
😃In today’s post, we will take a look at the amazing Casio Celviano Grand Hybrid GP-310 and the Kawai Concert Artist CA-79 Digital Pianos! And we will see which one has the better keyboard!
😊For an authentic piano touch, Casio has developed a new keyboard system called the “Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard”. This keyboard system features full-length wooden keys as well as hammers that follow the same path of motion as in a concert grand piano. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid features keys that are manufactured using exactly the same materials as acoustic grand piano. Careful attention is paid not only to finish of the surfaces of the keys but also to the quality of the wood employed for the key beds. This combination of an outstanding action mechanism and superior-quality key materials further enhances the sensation of playing an acoustic grand piano.
🥰The core of CELVIANO Grand Hybrid’s keyboard performance is created by Casio’s proprietary action mechanism. This mechanism includes a hammer movement modeled from a grand piano and three sensors, which accurately capture a performer expression from the keys. Since there are no physical strings, Casio’s action is able to exceed the performance characteristics of a grand piano, providing superior playability that enables pianists to perform such actions as trills and repetitive notes with ease.
😊Embracing many of the long-established principles associated with an acoustic piano, the Grand Feel III keyboard action utilized by the CA79 combines realistic materials, motion, and mechanism to recreate the exceptional touch of the finest concert grand pianos.
🥰All eighty-eight black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, with finely textured ivory and ebony-like surfaces applied to absorb moisture and assist control. Each wooden key pivots smoothly on a balance pin – the ends rising and falling to replicate the familiar ‘seesaw’ motion of an acoustic piano action. When pressed, the back of the key lifts, triggering a grade-weighted hammer to strike a pressure switch. The amount of force applied to this switch is then measured, and the corresponding note played with authentic tonal character and volume.
🎹For Piano Time, we really like the quality keyboard of the CA79, but the GP310 does come very close in terms of quality! So we really believe you won’t be missing out on too much no matter of your choice here!
