Compact Digital Piano Performance

The Casio CDP family is forged around compact and lightweight design with no sacrifices in either tone or playability. The new CDP-S350 meets these criteria with ease and features a fully weighted, hammer-action keyboard, battery power capability, and a powerful range of musical functionalities, all packed into a compact chassis weighing just 10.9KG.

As Casio says, the S-350 is, "An ideal choice of instrument whatever your favourite style of music may be. The CDP-S350 combines a massive library of creative sounds and accompaniment styles in one of our smallest designs to date."

Superior Playability

Casio are keen to stress that, at its core, the CDP-S350 is a "brilliantly versatile digital piano, suitable for all ages and abilities." To achieve this, the CDP-S350 includes a brand-new Smart Scaled Hammer Action II mechanism with simulated ebony and ivory texture keys. This new keyboard recreates the key weighting inherent in an acoustic piano, giving players an authentic playing feel to develop their technique and perform as expressively as possible.

The optional SP-34 pedal unit also provides three pedals for players to recreate the una corda, sostenuto, and damper effects found in acoustic instrument, making even the most sophisticated performances possible. A pitch bend wheel is also provided, giving the potential for synth-style performance and the recreation of electric guitar bends/vibrato.

Versatile Sounds

The CDP-S350 is loaded with over 700 dynamic instrument sounds, including acoustic & electric pianos, synths, guitars, and ethnic instruments. 200 music track styles are also provided, giving you a realistic backing band to practise and play along with.

A built-in arpeggiator and 6-track song recorder gives the potential to record your own song arrangements, while a Lesson function is provided to help you hone your skills. Speaking of honing your skills, Casio has teamed up with Rockschool - a leading music examinations board - to offer free downloadable scores of some fantastic rock and pop tracks, all included with the purchase of your CDP-S350.

Portable Design
