An improved touch response offers greater control of sound and more dynamic contrast. The award-winning Celviano Grand Hybrid pianos feature full length wooden keys and a moving hammer mechanism, as found in acoustic pianos, combined with the benefits of digital technology. Pianists can choose from three traditional grand piano sounds: Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna. The new models require no maintenance of their sounds or action.
