In addition, the new Damper Resonance and Hammer Response simulator adds more texture to the sustain pedal. The result, quite simply, is beautiful, natural sound that even experienced pianists will love.
The Casio PX-760 offers 18 instrument tones, including grand pianos, strings, organs, electric pianos, and bass. The split and layer options let you do interesting things with the keyboard.
