Affordable, Realistic-sounding Digital Piano!Casio knows something about you. They know that you want a digital piano that sounds like the real-deal, yes. They also know that you want keys that respond and play like the real deal. That's why the Privia PX-850 gives you the playing touch you demand (88 keys with responsive, piano-like scaled hammer action), plus the sound quality you've got to have (Casio's best stereo grand piano sound). It has an "Ivory Touch" keyboard, so it even feels like that old piano you used to play. And the keys are weighted, so the lower octaves require more force while the higher notes are light and airy under your fingertips - just like a great acoustic piano. Factor in the stunning grand piano sound, reinforced by a dual 20W speaker system, and what do you get? A grand piano experience, at an unmatched price. New pianists, old pianists, schools... take note: the Casio Privia PX-830 is a stellar choice!!
What else can we tell you? Sure, the PX-850 is perfect for the gigging 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-850 include the four reverb effects and four chorus effects - essential for enhancing your sound before you hit the stage. There's 256-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. Finally, once you have a genius moment, you can use the built-in 2-track recorder to get it down so you don't forget it.
