CASIO DIGITAL PIANOS

There are a lot of options for portable digital pianos under $1000.  For parents, the choice can be overwhelming.  Here at Merriam, we’ve tried them all – at trade shows, showrooms, head offices, and in actual performance.  

Our clear and first preference is Casio.

When compared with the wide range of no-name, white-label, or store brand products out of China, Korea, or Indonesia, the Casio pianos deliver a more authentic action, a complex and satisfying tone, and the right blend of function and portability.

Models like the PX160 or CGP700 offer exceptional quality for the price, meaning that students and parents alike can set a reasonable budget, and get a great instrument for the first few years of lessons.

C. Bechstein – A Unique Partnership

In addition to Casio’s recent progress in creating truly world-class entry and mid-range digital pianos (which are unapologetically competing with some of Yamaha / Kawai / Roland’s entry level product), Casio teamed up with C. Bechstein to create one of the world’s most realistic digital piano actions.  

Using action design and key sticks straight from Bechstein, Casio’s GP series of digital hybrid pianos become only the second digital piano in the world to use both a full-length key, as well as a true whippen action model to simulate the feel of a real piano.

They also worked with one of Germany’s most advanced recording studios to accurately sample and capture the essence of 3 of the world’s top 9 foot grand pianos, as well as the concert spaces that they are typically played in.
