The Casio Privia PX-350 digital piano is a portable instrument with excellent piano sound and feel, plus a large selection of instrument voices and options. It was introduced to the Amazon marketplace this past summer.
This digital piano may not be the best choice for novices for a few reasons. It’s a bit pricey . You will also need to buy a separate stand and seat to go with it. Perhaps the biggest drawback is the number of instrument sounds and extra features that might distract novices from learning to play piano.
However, the PX-350 could be the perfect digital piano for musicians, performers, and composers who want a lightweight instrument for studio use or live gigs, as well as for personal entertainment.
- Excellent piano sound and feel
- 17-track song recorder
- Need to buy stand and bench
- Comes with only 1 pedal
Casio’s award-winning grand piano sound is incorporated into the Privia PX-350 digital piano. The proprietary “AiR” sound engine offers natural and detailed piano tones. In fact, the PX-350 uses three times the memory of its predecessor to store a more dynamic range of sounds. With so much sound detail available, you can perform every piece of music with full expression and power.
A new Damper Resonance simulator enhances the sound of the sustain pedal. By the way, this model comes with one pedal but if you want the full piano experience, it’s recommended that you buy an optional three-pedal unit.
The redesigned Tri-sensor scaled hammer action keyboard reproduces the feeling of playing an acoustic keyboard. The weighted keys respond in the same way as the keys on a regular piano, allowing pianists of all skill levels to play more sensitively and comfortably. The keyboard and sound engine are coordinated to mimic how quickly different-sized hammers in an acoustic piano move and produce sound. This attention to natural velocity results in the most nuanced and realistic piano sound. With 128 notes of polyphony, you’ll hear every note to its natural conclusion, no matter what type of music you are performing.
The keyboard can be split and layered for duets or for playing more than one instrument voice. You can also save your favorite keyboard splits and layers for later use.
The Privia PX-350 was designed with the needs of songwriters and performers in mind. The instrument provides 180 drum patterns and auto accompaniment. In addition, there’s a 17-track recorder, a great help when composing your own music or creating arrangements for live performances.
The PX-350 is easy to connect to amps, storage devices, or sound equipment, with two headphone outlets, input/output lines, and MIDI and USB connections. The keyboard is light and portable, weighing 25 pounds without a stand.
The Casio Privia PX-350 digital piano offers a great combination of sound, feel, features, and portability. It’s a good choice for home, studio, or stage use, particularly if you’re going to take advantage of the instrument’s full capabilities.
