CASIO Musical Instruments: from VL-1 to the Modern Hybrid Piano
Japanese electronics firm CASIO was founded in 1946 and has been operating as CASIO Computer Co., Ltd. since 1957. After the company made a name for itself in the 60s as a producer of electronic computers and desktop calculators, and causing a stir in the mid 70s with the development of multifunctional digital watches, CASIO began producing keyboards in the early 80s. The Casiotone 201 was the first electronic keyboard CASIO brought onto the market, while the VL-1 was the first mini keyboard with a synthesizer and sequencer function. This resulted in CASIO’s first market success, in 1981. Thanks to its distinctive sound, the VL-1 is still used by many musicians today for different sound effects. In 1991, CASIO introduced the AP-7, the first e-piano in the CELVIANO series. This was followed by the PRIVIA series of instruments in 2003, consisting of compact digital pianos with autoaccompaniment before the manufacturer presented the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid in 2015. Developed in collaboration with the famous builder of pianos and grand pianos, C. Bechstein, these are products with a vision to create a revolutionary piano, linking top digital technology with the perfect sound of traditional acoustic concert grand pianos.
