The Casio Privia PX150BK Digital Piano was just recently introduced to the Amazon marketplace. It’s a followup to the popular PX130 model, with more refined technology and a few more features.
The Casio Privia PX150BK is suitable for pianists of any skill level. It’s easy for novices to use, but it also offers the quality that intermediate players expect from a digital piano.
- Authentic piano tones
- Nicely weighted keyboard
- No rhythm patterns
- Stand not included
Casio’s full-sized, 88-key Tri-sensor scaled hammer action keyboard was already good. But in the PX150BK, it has been redesigned to look and feel even more like an acoustic piano. On the outside, you’ll notice the new simulated ebony and ivory textured keys. They add to the elegant appearance fo the keyboard and provide a lovely that look elegant and feel nice under the fingers. The inner workings of the keyboard have been refined to simulate the speed of hammer action in an acoustic piano. What this means for musicians is a more realistic and gratifying keyboard experience.
Casio has made dramatic improvements in its digital piano sound engine, as well. It uses three times the memory of its predecessor for more detailed and natural piano tones. Casio’s Acoustic and intelligent Resonator (AiR) sound source provides dynamic, natural instrument sound that reflects all the nuances in your playing. Even experienced acoustic pianists will be pleased and amazed by the authenticity of the grand piano sound.
The Casio PX150BK provides 128 notes of polyphony. This lets you play complicated pieces of music with layered voices and sustain pedal, and still hear every note – with no unnatural sound cutoff.
In total, there are 18 built-in tones, as well as duet, layer, split, and octave shift keyboard modes. Sixty demo songs are included.
The piano doesn’t have accompaniment features or rhythm patterns, but many people aren’t interested in those extras. They just want high-quality piano sounds, and that is exactly what the Privia PX150BK offers.
The PX150BK has a built-in metronome. There is a 2-track song recorder, a feature that both beginners and advanced pianists can enjoy. The piano has USB connectivity and 2 headphone outlets (2 outlets are better than 1 because it allows for duets or lessons). If you want to share your music with the world, the two 8-watt speakers will output plenty of volume.
The Casio Privia PX150BK weighs about 26 pounds. The piano comes with 1 pedal, but you can get three pedals with the optional stand.
What is the difference between this model and more expensive Casio pianos? One of the primary differences is simply the cabinet (or lack thereof). Let’s face it – you’ll pay more for a cabinet-style piano with exactly the same sound engine. Some folks prefer a musical instrument that resembles a piano. Other folks find the portability of the Casio PX1S0 to be an advantage. It’s really your choice.
The Casio Privia PX150BK is a moderately priced digital piano that does a great job delivering the essentials – authentic piano sound and feel.
