- Best Home Piano under 2k
It seems like there is a conspiracy among the other major digital piano makers. Yamaha, Roland, Kawai, Kurzweil: I’m looking at you. They utterly refuse to market a traditionally styled piano for under two thousand dollars MSRP. They have pianos in that price range that sound nice, but the “modesty panel” that takes the place of the traditional sound board only covers (at best) half the back of the piano. This tells the world, “look everybody, I bought a cheap piano.” Fortunately, Casio breaks this cartel and makes the Celviano Casio AP420 Celviano Digital Piano with Bench and AP620, Casio sells them both for well under 2k list. Both are traditionally-styled pianos, with good actions and good sound at a very competitive price. I bought the AP620 because it has more features at only a modest price premium, but the AP420 is a good value as well if you mainly care about the main piano voice.
- Attractive and nice sounding digital piano
We purchased our AP-620 from a local music store about a month ago. Our sons have been taking lessons for a few years now and don’t seem to be loosing interest in continuing with it, so we decided tho upgrade from the cheapo $100 electronic keyboard we had to something closer to a real piano. We also wanted something that would look nice in our living room.
They compared the feel of the Celviano AP-420′s keyboard to the comparable Yamaha digital piano. While both were nice, they prefered the lighter feel of the Celviano to the somewhat heavier key action on the Yamaha.
We decided to go with the AP-620 because while I’m not a musician, I am a tech/gadget person. For the extra $300, I liked all of the other instruments/sounds, rhythms, SD slot, having dedicated buttons for the features rather than holding down a function button and pressing a key on the keyboard, LCD screen, and more powerful amplifier. I also preferred the black of the AP-620 over the brown of the AP-420. However, the key action and standard piano sounds are identical between the 420 and the 620.
Assembly was pretty straight-forward, and took about 1.5 hours taking a leisurely approach and having the kids help. The keyboard portion comes full assembled, and you just need a screwdriver to assemble the stand and bench. The stand is made from the typical particle board w/wood vaneer that most furniture is made from today, with some metal crossbeams to add support and secure the front legs. Given the materials, the quality was high, with no warping or sepatation of the vaneer from the wood, no noticable gaps once the stand was assembled, as well as being quite sturdy once everything was screwed down.
The bench is all metal, with an easily adjustable height for the seat portion. This was a nice extra, as it really helps to enforce a more correct posture than the lightweight, non-adjustable folding bench we had before.
The sound of this digital piano is light-years better than the inexpensive keyboard we had before – to my untrained ear it is indistiguisable from a real piano. It is much more pleasant to listen to the kids practicing on it instead of the old keyboard which made everything sound like a bad ringtone. It makes the investment in lessons more worthwhile that they can actually practice the more nuanced parts of playing the piano rather than just getting the right notes.
Overall, I’m very happy with this purchase, and we’ve seen nearly a doubling in the amount of practice or just learning new songs since we’ve moved up to this full sized piano with a keyboard that actually feels like a real piano keyboard, as well as sounding like a real piano.
I’ll also upload some pictures that show the unassembled stand, the expansion ports underneath the piano, the piano itself, and the contols for all of its features.
- The Pictures Don’t do it Justice
I upgraded from a Casio Privia to the Celviano 620 and my first introduction to it was helping the UPS man heft it from the truck and into my living room. The package, which is as big as most freezers, weighed 137 pounds. Once it was in the house I unpacked it, a job in itself as the packaging seems to be designed to withstand being dropped from a cliff. Short of utter destruction, I don’t think any jostling or mishaps in route could penetrate the packaging enough to harm the contents.
So what of the piano? It was simple to assemble, and although the blurb says two people are needed to assemble it, I did it by myself with my cat supervising the operation. The wooden cabinet is quite nice. The pictures on the internet don’t do it justice, and the solidity and stability of the assembled unit is reassuring, especially if you engage in vigorous playing. This piano sits firmly in place and is going nowhere. I plugged it in and began playing with it. The feel of the keys is exquisite. My teacher has a Steinway, and the keys of the Celviano approximate the weight and feel of the keys. The sound is excellent, especially through headphones. The sampling seems superior to my year-and-a-half old Privia.
The pedals have a good push to them, actually a little heavier than my teacher’s Steinway so if you play a piece with a lot of pedal you’ll build up your leg muscles fairly quickly. All three pedals do what they’re supposed to, and to my ear the effects are identical to an acoustic piano.
The onboard music library has an excellent selection, and you get a book with sheet music for the music in the library. This is very handy if you happen to be learning any of these pieces–and I am, both Scott Joplin selections are pieces on which I’m working.
The SD chip recording feature is sweet, and if you want to connect to a computer you do so with a standard USB cable, not a MIDI cable. The stool/bench that came with it is metal construction, and would probably hold two of me with no problem.
I’m very pleased with it. I researched and tried out quite a few Digital Pianos before deciding on the Celviano and as others have said you simply can’t beat it for the money.
