Redefining Tradition Through

Innovation from the first glance, the AP-550's elegant design captivates the imagination. With a wealth of new features inside, the new Celviano digital piano is available in three beautiful colours that lend an air of sophistication to any setting, with all models featuring a reflective front panel that recalls the familiar characteristics of a polished acoustic grand.

 

Smart Hybrid Hammer Action

Keyboard Casio’s new Smart Hybrid Hammer action represents a breakthrough in digital piano technology, seamlessly merging the authentic feel of an acoustic piano with the versatility of a modern digital instrument. Crafted with precision using resin and Austrian spruce wood, the same materials as an acoustic piano, this innovative key action combines the nuanced touch of acoustic piano keys with smart sensor technology, providing players with a responsive and expressive playing experience.

 

2 Concert Grand Piano Tones

The AP-550 boasts 25 tones in total, including 2 Concert Grand piano tones: Hamburg (newly sampled for this model) and New York. The Hamburg tone exudes richness and lyrical warmth, while the New York tone offers a brighter sound, characterised by resonant overtones.

 

New 4-Speaker System

The AP-550 features an advanced 4-speaker system strategically positioned for optimal sound projection. Supported by two channels of amplification, it delivers a seamless and dynamic audio experience. The addition of an opening lid enhances the immersive acoustics, faithfully reproducing the sympathetic resonance reminiscent of a traditional grand piano.

 

New Pedal Design

The pedal design of the AP-550 mirrors the dimensions of those found on an acoustic grand piano, providing continuous variability for the damper pedal. This precise control unlocks possibilities for the most demanding performance techniques, elevating your musical expression to new heights.

 

Visual Information Bar and Touch Controls

New touch controls offer quick access to the most common functions but disappear when not in use to minimise distractions. The Visual Information Bar displays key velocity, damper pedal depth, or a silent metronome, offering insights into your playing for more productive and informed practice sessions.

 

Bluetooth Audio and MIDI Capabilities

Seamlessly integrate the AP-550 into your digital world with Bluetooth Audio and MIDI. Stream audio from your smart device and play along to your favourite songs. Connect to online tutorials (including free lessons from the Casio Music Academy) or use Casio’s free Music Space app to control the functions and settings of the AP-550 wirelessly

Delivering your new piano

How are you going to get your new instrument home? Digital pianos are supplied to us flat-packed in boxes and we offer a number of options for you:

Collect from our loading bay

Our Newcastle store has a vehicle loading bay outside. At the checkout, simply select ‘in-store collection’ and we will contact you with directions to the collection point.

A note on box sizes: All digital piano collections will require the back seats of a car to be folded down. Portable stage pianos fit relatively easily in most cars. Small cabinet pianos also fit in most cars. Larger digital pianos generally come in one big box that can be up to 100kg. These pianos would only fit in larger cars and small vans. 

Box dropoff

This is our default delivery option. When we deliver boxed items we will use DHL, our own driver, or occasionally a specialist piano mover (Griffin Transport UK).

If you choose this option for delivery, please be aware that this is a ground floor delivery service only and where possible the box will be delivered inside the ground floor of the house. If there are stairs up to the front door, or if you live in a flat, it is at the delivery driver’s discretion as to whether they can help bring the box inside the front door. Ultimately, the responsibility lies with the customer in this instance to bring the piano into the address. If you want to house the piano in an upstairs room, the driver will not carry the box upstairs for you, the responsibility for moving the piano inside the house remains with the customer.

Boxed digital pianos can range in weight from 12kg to over 100kg. There are some models of piano that are either too bulky or too heavy to delivery via a drop off service. Delivery options for these pianos are restricted to a specialist installation to ensure the safe arrival of the item.

If you have any questions about our box drop off service or would like any advice regarding how best to deliver your piano please give us a call on 0191 2602915.

Premium delivery and installation

If you are buying a ‘cabinet style’ piano rather than a ‘portable’ instrument many customers feel that the best option is specialist installation. We use the services of Griffin Transport UK. This is a specialist piano removal company that we have worked with for many years, we hear nothing but great reports about the service they provide. Once you have selected your piano, we will forward your contact details to Griffin UK who will then contact you directly to arrange a mutually convenient delivery slot. They will unbox and assemble your new instrument and dispose of all packaging materials. This will give you the peace of mind that your precious instrument is handled with care and assembled correctly; the mountain of cardboard and polystyrene will also be taken care of!

Local piano deliveries are usually completed within 7 – 10 days and piano deliveries elsewhere in the UK usually within 2 – 3 weeks.
