Casio AP-500 88-Key Digital Piano
This piano comes with all original documents and was purchased new from Same Day Music for $1099. It is in pristine aesthetic condition and rarely used (no sratches, wear and tear). It was listed as a B-stock option, which is certified by the manufacturer as perfect sound quality except for a cosmetic blemish. There is a 3-inch ding in the back of the piano that occurred during production. This is why we purchased the piano for less than the $2,899 retail price.
New York City customers are welcome to view and play the piano at our home.
The AP-500 includes 88 Full-Size Weighted Scaled Hammer Action Keys, AIF Sound Source, 128-Note Polyphony, Touch Sensitive, 164 Tones, General MIDI, 74 built-in songs.
A new AIF Sound Source delivers all the sound quality and playability of a fine grand piano. High-precision stereo sampling of a grand piano combines with an original new filter system to produce sounds that modulate naturally from the moment a key is pressed until the note decays. A Tri-element system uses three different waveforms of each note, which makes it possible to produce realistic sounds in response to different key pressures. In addition, an original AIF Sound Source system communicates each delicate nuance to the sound source so everything from pianissimos to fortissimos is reproduced with the same richness of expression as an acoustic grand.
Advanced Casio exclusive AIF sound chip
AIF (Acoustic & Intelligent Filtering System) Sound Source
Precision, large-volume sampling of waveform data combines with the latest in waveform processing technology to produce natural, amazingly realistic grand piano and other acoustic musical instrument sounds.
Notes reverberate naturally without being cut off during high-speed passages and pieces that require intensive damper pedal operations. It also provides plenty of playability for four-hand duets as well.
Tri-element for piano tones
Three separate samples of a grand piano are employed for strong, light, and medium keyboard pressure. The result is an amazing range of expression for a digital piano.
An acoustic resonance system reproduces the resonant effect of a grand piano damper pedal for more realistic piano performances
