Product Highlights
  • Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard

  • Damper Resonance Simulator
  • Onboard Digital Effects
  • Class Compliant MIDI over USB
  • Ebony and Ivory Textured Keys

The black PX-150 Privia 88-Key Digital Piano from Casio features the new AiR sound source, which provides accurate instrument modeling with a high level of sonic detail. The Tri-sensor scaled hammer action, combined with a Damper Resonance simulator, gives the user a closer feel to an acoustic piano.

The 88-note scaled hammer action keyboard features simulated Ebony and Ivory textured keys. Three sensors per key capture the dynamics of a performance. The PX-150 mimics the variable hammer timing that occurs naturally inside of an acoustic grand, relative to the attack velocity.

The PX-150 has many other tones, including strings, organs, electric pianos and bass. It also provides split and layering capability. Duet mode splits the keyboard into two equal ranges, allowing student and teacher to use the piano in unison. An integrated two-track recorder can record and playback your practice and performances.

Class compliant USB connectivity allows the PX-150 to be used with Mac or Windows. MIDI over USB functionality allows PX-150 to also function as a MIDI controller.

          Comments about Casio PX-150 Privia 88-Key Digital Piano (Black):

          I did a fair amount of research before buying this. I' m not a professional player by any means. But I can play several instruments including piano by ear. The sound reproduction is great. Great that it also has other sounds apart from piano and various versions of piano. Nice and heavy. The touch and feel of keys are great just like real life piano. Only thing I would have liked a bit more volume on the concert piano. I feel like the max volume is not sufficient (just on certain instruments) if you like a bit more loudness or larger audience or area in the home. But again some prefer it the way it is. But for the price , it's excellent.

          I'm not much of a pianist, but the pianist I play with has used it and said it was a nice improvement over his current Privia, and compared favorably with other electric pianos he has used. We like the way the Function key is employed; it makes selecting the various tonal effects intuitive.

          Comments about Casio PX-150 Privia 88-Key Digital Piano (Black):

          These are but first impressions, after 3 days of practicing 4 hours each day.I am an advanced highly skilled player. The good:- *** For the price ***, mechanism, key response, weighting are excellent compared to other electronic pianos, 6+ times pricier I had in the past. I was accustomed to play the Petroff concert grand, which is a very big (long) piano with a very heavy mechanism. But that was in college and I can't afford to buy one. So when it comes to pianos, for my hard fingers the mechanism cannot be heavy enough. From Scarlatti, through Mozart, and to Art Tatum, run-ups, grace notes, mordents, etc., sound very crisp with each note distinct, with clear attack.- The number of instruments is adequate for a player. If one wants to write music, he/she better had a controller.- Light enough for gigs. But you'll need a bag. Some people use a light (aluminum) dolly. Make sure it has larger wheels for a smooth ride. Now the lesser aspects:- Samples uneven, especially black notes in the mid register. In contrast to the crisp white keys, the black keys sound more like a very thick spinet. Luckily, these black keys are not so great in number. The difference is noticeable though, at list to me. Some samples also buzz, in stead of sympathetic vibration noise. And yet some (about two) have an added mechanical noise, sort of a clack plus a 'ts' sound layered on top, as if they were broken, but in fact it seems to be sample imperfection. These are minor enough gripes, nevertheless the issues become annoying after lots of playing. - I played all of the instruments. Some are better than other. For instance, the harpsichord has its high frequencies somewhat attenuated, with tone color somewhat muffled. I heard better ones on comparable pianos. - The vibraphone would be excellent ton color wise, but some notes are badly out of tune.- Pipe organ is only so-so, again I heard much better ones. - As many people mentioned, speakers are mediocre, but in my case this is irrelevant, for I use professional grade earphones. - No speaker output jacks. In case of a gig, one will also need an amp. This makes the gig all the more heavily laden with gear, especially for a cocktail gig. I am not sure whether the amplifiers are of 8W each, but if so, when one has sensitive enough speakers a lot bigger ones could be fed by those 8Watts (per channel). Overall though, I am satisfied, especially because of the mechanism's weighting. John.I also bought the OnStage KS3750 Z stand and the M-Audio SP-2 Universal Keyboard Sustain Pedal which I'll review at the pertinent places.

          Comments about Casio PX-150 Privia 88-Key Digital Piano (Black):

          When the product came in the box, I was very impressed with the weighted key action. I was also surprised on the width of the unit, very nicely compact.
          The reason I would give it 4 out of 5 stars is that yes the onboard speakers are very mediocre. I have an older portable grand from Yamaha, and boy what great sound that has. This piano dosn't do much with sound, even with good headphones, the sound is still a little weaker than I expected (perhaps I'm just used to great sounds). So if you want to use the piano just as, well, a piano, its fantastic for the price, but if you want something with a little more kick to the sound, probably not your best pick.

          Having that in mind, I don't use the onboard sound at all. I have Eastwest's complete composer's collection, and all I can say is that it is a fantastic controller to work with these sounds. I've used it with Cubase, Digital Performer, and Logic. While the hammer action is great, the textured keys take a little time getting used too. I've looked around at other midi controllers/ keyboards, and this is perhaps the best alternative to a controller like from M-audio. I found that a lot of controllers that are in the same price ranger are very low quality, and the alternative is to spend a lot on a great controller. This is a great alternative.

              I bought this for myself to play and so I could teach my kids to play the piano. We did not have a large budget so i knew i would not be getting a top of the line model, but I believe it is a good value. It is easy to use, although I haven't taken the time to figure out al the functions. I am no expert pianist. I took lessons for 10 years and just wanted something for me to practice and keep up my skills. Also, so I could start lessons for my kids. The only complaint - and this may be the case for any digital piano - is that the keys make a noise after you strike them. It is not super loud and does not drown out the sound of the music, but it can be annoying. Overall, I am happy with the purchase!

                This is my first foray into playing the piano seriously. The hammer action and feel as well as the resonance and dampening when using the pedals, make it a very real experience for the space conscious consumer. You have to play on one of these whether you are a beginner or doing serious gigging. Amazing sound for the money!!

                    I bought this piano after a couple of years without one, and only having had experience with an acoustic before. I was a bit anxious but after playing the PX-150 for a week I'm in love with it. As with any instrument it takes a little time to adjust to the tone and voice. PX-150 gives you a number of options and I find most of them great. The touch sensitivity is as good as anything I have played, the sound is fantastic, and the ivory feel of the keys just makes the experience of playing special. I considered buying PX-750 and ended up with the PX-150 because of its portability and with headphones, the sound is ultimately the same. The keyboard is 16kg, so not very portable but I can imagine moving it on occasion. And as I've ended up using headphones most of the time (so that I don't disturb family at night or early in the morning when I'm playing) I think the PX-150 was indeed the better choice for me. The PX-750 definitely has better speakers - you can listen to the two on youtube. The speakers of the PX-150 are perfectly adequate though.

                    One unexpected bonus was that the piano came with the scores of the pre-programed music - 60 mostly classic pieces, including some of my favorite Chopin, Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, and Debussy.
