A Gotta-Get for the Gigging Keyboardist!You're a gigging keyboardist, right? So you want a digital piano that sounds awesome when you plug it in... but one that doesn't take three roadies to haul into the show. And Casio gets that. That's why the Privia PX-350 gives you the playing touch you demand (88 keys with responsive, piano-like weighted scaled hammer action), plus the sound quality you've got to have (Casio's best stereo grand piano sound), all built to be light enough for you to carry yourself. Yes, the PX-350 weighs right around 25 lbs. - that's less than most college kids' backpacks. And you'll be surprised to hear that there are stereo speakers included in the PX-350's light weight.
More than that, though, the Casio PX-350 gives you a huge selection of sounds plus built-in 17-track recording support. That way, you've got the sounds to inspire new ideas... plus the ability to record the ideas when the come. And you can do all of that without having to go find your computer. Say you're in the middle of rehearsals... awesome song idea strikes the band. Preserve your part on the PX-350, no problem. And if you're jamming on your own, you can use the 180 built-in rhythms as launching-off points for tracks.
So, what else can we tell you? Sure, the PX-350 is perfect for the gigging and rehearsing musician. But anyone taking lessons is going to love this one too. The affordable price gets you a full-size instrument that plays like you want it to (like a piano!!) and it sounds just as awesome. More than that, with the speakers... it's a self-contained performance instrument. But you can always plug in headphones - one or two pairs - so teacher and student or whoever can listen in on what's going on. Flip on Duet Mode and you'll split the keyboard in half so both of you can play the same notes at the same time, instead of having one person jamming up on those high notes while the other plays an octave below.
Other fun stuff onboard the PX-350 include the four reverb effects and four chorus effects - essential for enhancing your sound before you hit the stage. There's 128-note polyphony, so you know. That means you can play passages that are full of notes, full of sustain... and not worry about the keyboard crapping out. It'll hang in there... plenty of notes can be played at once.
We'll go ahead and make the long story short here. For this low price, the PX-350 is a total steal. No wonder so many keyboardists (and even non-keyboardists!) have been snatching this one up.
