A very affordable 88 weighted key digital piano from a reputable company.
The PX-160 Privia 88-Key Digital Piano from Casio features the innovative AiR sound source, which provides multi-dimensional sound production and a natural reproduction of a grand piano's playing and sound properties. The Tri-sensor scaled hammer action includes real hammers that have a scaled weight, which when combined with the Damper Resonance simulator, give the user a closer feel to an acoustic piano. The 88-note keyboard is made from simulated ebony and ivory textured keys, and features three sensors per key to capture the dynamics of a performance, while the variable hammer mimics the timing that occurs naturally inside of an acoustic grand, relative to the attack velocity.
The PX-160 offers 128-note polyphony and includes 18 built-in instrument tones including pianos, electric pianos, strings, organs, a vibraphone and a bass. The keyboard offers a duet mode, which splits the keyboard into two equal ranges so a student and teacher may play together. Additional functions include splits, layers, and 17 preset scales. The PX-160 also has 60 built-in songs that may be used for practicing or for your listening pleasure. The song recorder allows you to record a song via MIDI with up to 2 tracks.
Class compliant USB connectivity also allows the PX-160 to be used with Mac or Windows and function as a MIDI controller. The optional SC-67 stand puts the PX-160 at the proper height, while the optional SP-33 pedal system provides the same 3-pedal functionality as a grand piano. The PX-160 ships with an AC adapter, sustain pedal, music book, and music stand.
