NAMM 2019 | The New Casio PX-S is the World's Slimmest Digital Piano!
The brand-new Casio PX-S range of digital pianos is now the world's slimmest with 88 weighted keys. With Bluetooth and a touch interface panel, these new instruments see "beauty and substance combine".
The Casio Privia digital piano family has become the embodiment of compact design with full-featured performance. Perfect for the rehearsal room, home, studio, and stage, Privia pianos are streamlined, yet provide a Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard and incredible piano sounds for a truly immersive feel. As Casio says, " Their stylish slimline designs contain inspiring features and exceptional capabilities without compromise."
It is with great interest, then, that Casio has made the Privia line even more slimline for 2019! The brand-new PX-S series is being touted as the world's slimmest digital piano, albeit with a weighted keyboard and built-in speakers. Nevertheless, we had just started to grow accustomed to the amazing performance that the Privia family packs into its miniscule designs, and to learn that Casio has scaled this design down even further is nothing short of revelatory!
In addition to the new super compact and stylish design, the PX-S ("S" for "slimline" perhaps?) series features Bluetooth compatibility and a stunning touch interface panel. The result is a new range of super-modern instruments that will fit into almost any space and guarantee an immersive piano performance.
Two PX-S Pianos for 2019
Casio has announced two models in the new PX-S series; the PX-S1000 and the PX-S3000. Both models feature Bluetooth Audio for syncing with your mobile device to play music, as well as a battery power option to perform in any location. The two pianos feature an enhanced version of Casios's AIR Sound Source ii for immersive sounds, as well as a textured key touch and 88 weighted keys. The keys also feature a scaled hammer action which reproduces the way an acoustic piano feels 'heavier' on the lower keys.
The affordable PX-S1000 includes 18 instrument tones with enhanced dynamic range, offering enough sounds to cover many different musical genres and performance situations. The fully-featured PX-S3000 ups the number of instruments to 700(!) and also includes 2000 revamped auto-accompaniment styles, an Auto Harmonizer, a range of effects and Chordana App compatability; perfect for practice and rehearsals. An enhanced 8w 8w stereo speaker system is packed into this slimline piano making it the ultimate portable, all-in-one instrument.
With stock due from April 2019, the new Privia PX-S looks set to become a very popular solution for players who want portability without compromise.
