Casio Privia PX-850 Review

The Casio Privia series has been so poplar, and now their latest versions have come along.

At the top of the line is Casio Privia PX-850 which is a digital piano that has that Casio sound which I have tried to describe in these various reviews.

I feel the Casios have a really good sampling instrument.

The grand piano sound it produces is rich and has very good overtones, from its lows to mids and highs, and I would go so far to say that the highs especially, the octaves above C above middle C sound like they have a full compliment of overtones, which means they sound real.

Casio PX 130 Privia Digital Piano REVIEW

My Overall Rating: stars

If you’re looking for a digital piano with a superb piano sound but with a price that is way under pianos which have similar quality and features, then you’ve got to look at the Casio PX 130 Privia Digital Piano.

I have been looking at many digital pianos and keyboards with 88 keys, and compared the Yamahas, Rolands and Casios amongst others, and have found that the Casios have improved so much in their latest models that they are really quite impressive.
