1) “The sound of the piano is really good”
I bought a Classenti GR1i digital baby grand.
The delivery guys were absolutely brilliant, they put the piano together and positioned it, they really could not have been more helpful, it made me feel that I have chosen the right product.
The sound of the piano is really good and I am so happy with the choice.
Thank you to all of you in the team!

Record and Play Back
This feature allows you to record your own music. All you need to do is press the ‘record’ button
and start playing. When you’ve finished playing, press the ‘play’ button and it will play back your song. The
recording feature is also compatible with PC music file formats. In other words, you can record yourself in a file
format that can then be transferred to other media (CDs, MP3 etc.)
No need to buy one, it’s built-in. Essential for learning how to play in time. You can adjust the
speed to suit the music you are playing.
The Classenti GR1i has a built-in transformer which allows you to use the piano in any country.
It automatically adjusts to your country’s voltage.
AC mains adaptor with standard UK plug.
3 Pedals: Sustain, Soft and Sostenuto (gold colour)
Sustain pedal. This is the pedal on the right. On upright pianos it is sometimes
referred to as a ‘damper pedal’. This pedal allows you to sustain any note, or notes, without having to hold the
Soft pedal. This is the pedal on the left. Pressing this down makes the sound a lot
quieter. It’s very useful when you’re required to play something very delicate.
Sostenuto pedal. This pedal is in the middle. Used mainly by experienced pianists. The sostenuto pedal sustains
only notes that are depressed at the time the pedal is depressed. More proficient players use it when a note, or
notes need to be sustained without being disturbed when the right pedal comes into play.
Three, attractive grand piano style legs. Just like a real acoustic grand piano.
The GR1i has a prop. The prop allows you to have the lid up. Having the lid up increases the
volume and richness of the tone. The prop is in chrome to match the other fittings.
Key Weight Control
Prefer a heavier or lighter touch? No problem, just use the key weight control button to select
from three settings: Standard, heavy and light. The piano’s default setting is standard. The keys remain touch
sensitive on all settings.

Japanese engineers created the Classenti sound by combining a multitude of tones from the world’s
finest concert grand pianos. These engineers didn’t just take the sound from one grand piano they took the richest,
most vibrant ones; enhanced them, then came up with a digitally sampled version that’s quite unique. I don’t know
exactly how they accomplished this, but the result is a clean, piano sound that’s incredibly realistic.
2 x Headphone jacks to connect headphones. Two players can play with headphones at the same time.
128 Note Polyphony
This allows you to play up to 128 notes simultaneously (I know you only have 10 fingers, but this
includes notes held down by the pedal).
Connect straight to your computer.
You can connect to your computer and other MIDI compatible hardware. Allows interaction with
piano tuition PC software, and music notation software such as Sibelius, Finale, NotationComposer, MagicScore, MusicTime, QuickScore and many more. If you’re into composing
them the MIDI In/Out is a must.
Audio In (also known as ‘Line in’ or ‘aux in’)
The Audio-in allows you to connect external music sources (with RCA outputs) such as your PDA or MP3 player.
Audio Out (also known as ‘Line out’ or ‘aux out’)
If you want to give a live performance, connect your Classenti piano to your hi-fi system through
the Audio-out (or auxiliary-out).
Change your piano’s pitch to play along with other instruments such as trumpet, clarinet, etc. Or
make some musical pieces more comfortable for singers.
This produces a slight echo on each note to mimic the sound a grand piano makes in a concert hall.
Choose any two sounds and merge them together… A very nice combination is the piano voice
combined with strings.
Make your piano sound brighter or more mellow.
Master Volume Switch
You can turn the sound right down for late night playing, or up to its maximum for loud
You can turn your piano on or off without having to reach for the mains socket.

Polished ebony is a highly polished, mirror finish. It’s vastly superior to any satin finish.
Polished ebony is harder wearing due to there being no edges or joins. Fingers marks and
scratches appear more pronounced though. Polished ebony looks exceptionally smart and
professional. And it will go with practically any colour scheme in your home. It looks
particularly good against wooden floors or oak furniture.
Polished white is a highly polished, mirror finish. It’s vastly superior to
any satin finish. Polished white is harder wearing due to there being no edges or joins.
