Casio Privia PX-130 Review
Casio Privia PX-130 – The grand piano sound in the PX-130 delivers an unprecedented level of realism and expression. Four dynamic layers of stereo piano samples are integrated with Casio’s proprietary Linear Morphing System, resulting in a grand piano sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range.Learn more click here How To Buy a Piano.
Features of Sound and keys:
For added realism, the PX-130 simulates the sound of the open strings when the dampers are raised by the pedal using Acoustic Resonance DSP. The PX-130 also has 128-note polyphony, enough horsepower for the most demanding musical passages and the ability to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without worry of dropped notes. The result is a grand piano experience that is unmatched at any price.To read more about Casio AP420 review.
The keys are made of solid construction and feel very much like the keys of an acoustic piano. This model comes with several features not typically seen. In addition to the typical variety of sounds, this model offers split sounds with one sound coming from the low pitched keys and another sound coming from the high pitched keys. There is also a built in USB port for transferring your recorded songs to your computer.To read more about Casio CTk-2100 review.
The two 8 watt speakers offer rich sound and are some of the best we have seen in the 8 watt range. Another speaker feature is that the lower pitched sounds from the keys on the left come from the speaker on the left and the higher pitched sounds from the keys on the right come from the speaker on the right. The lightweight of the PX130 and high quality sound makes this a good option for professional musicians to bring from gig to gig.To read more about Yamaha YPT-220 review.

Below, please take the best-rated pianos on Amazon, and how they stack up against the Casio PX-130:
Casio Privia PX-130 Features :
- 88 weighted, scaled hammer-action keys
- 128-note polyphony
- 16 tones (with layer and split)
- Reverb (4 types), Chorus (4 types), Brilliance (-3 to 0 to 3), Acoustic Resonance
The weighted action on each key gives, I’d say – 90% of the feel of a real acoustic piano. Of course, this is a lot smaller and cheaper than new pianos. Low notes have a stiffer keyboard feel than higher notes, like a “real” piano. The sounds are excellent as well, based on sampled acoustic pianos.Learn more click here How To Play violin.

Summary: The Casio PX130 has exceptional action and decent touch response. It offers a wide variety of features and accessories (some sold separately). This model excels in its price range.
