The Casio PX-150 Privia Digital Piano was designed to recreate the full, sophisticated sound of a grand piano in a lightweight digital package. With 88 full-sized and weighted keys, the PX-150 offers a natural, responsive feel that classical pianists will love. If your priority is a fantastic grand piano sound for a competitive price, you've found your next instrument. And with the built-in metronome, plus the ability to record your performances for review, this is the perfect digital piano for players of all levels.
Grand Piano Sounds in Under 25 Pounds
From rich stereo grand piano to organs, electric pianos, strings and bass, the PX-150 has 18 built-in tones that are reproduced in full, detailed fidelity thanks to the built-in twin 8-watt speakers. When you sit at the keyboard, you'll hear high notes from the right of center and bass notes from the left, just as you would on an acoustic piano. Plug in an optional piano-style sustain pedal, and the PX-150 simulates the sound of open strings when the dampers are raised, adding a layer of dynamics and exceptional detail for a powerful performance. While some digital pianos have a damper function that merely mutes the notes, the Damper Resonance Simulator mimics what happens in a real piano: a shift in the a resonant characteristics of the modeled acoustic chamber. It's a subtle effect, yet it contributes tremendously to the keyboard's organic sound.
Realistic Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer-Action Keyboard
For authentic performances, the way an instrument feels is every bit as important as how it sounds. A grand piano's mechanics consist of a complex system of levers, joints, hammers, and strings. The PX-150's keys recreate an acoustic piano's natural playing resistance, so it feels like you're playing the real deal. "Scaled" means that this resistance gets heavier as you move towards the bass end of the keyboard -- just like on a real piano, where hammers hitting heavier-gauge strings result in heavier-feeling keys.
128-Note Polyphony: Hear Every Note
Polyphony determines how many notes your digital instrument can produce at one time. A real acoustic piano has no polyphonic limitations. When you play a digital piano with limited polyphonic ability, you'll see why high polyphony matters: if you play more notes than the keyboard's processors can handle, some notes will be cut off. To avoid this problem, the PX-150 is capable of 128-note polyphony. In other words, it can produce more notes than there are keys on its keyboard -- so cut-off and muted sounds will never be a problem, even when playing along with yourself on the on-board 2-track recorder.
The Privia Digital Piano as a Learning Tool
The PX-150 sports a few instructional tools that make this keyboard a good choice for students or piano instructors. In particular, the "Duet Mode" is an invaluable tool for students and teachers. By splitting the keyboard down the middle into two parallel halves, the PX-150 allows two people to play on opposite sides of the piano in the same note range. It's like having two pianos right next to each other. No duet partner? There's onboard two-track sequencer, so you can record and play along with yourself -- plus a Lesson function that lets you mute each hand's part.
No student should be without a metronome, so there's one included onboard the PX-150. You can dial in the tempo of any piece of music you want to play, and solidify your sense of time as you practice. Learn to play along with the built-in library of 60 classical and popular songs, or when the lesson is over, just kick back and enjoy some classy background music.

When performing at concerts or recitals, pianists must often rely on whichever instrument the venue provides -- no matter what shape it's in. You can't play at your best when the piano you're playing is old, unmaintained, or untuned. Because of its lightweight design, you can carry the PX-150 to your gigs -- so you can be confident that your performance will sound well. And with Casio's proprietary AiR sound source at the heart of the PX-150, this digital piano is an incredible value that's worthy of the Privia name.

The Casio PX-150 represents a significant step in the continuing evolution of the Privia digital piano line. A combination of balanced keyboard action and a powerful sound engine provide a level of detail, nuance, and expression for a superior grand piano experience in the lightweight and stylish design that Privia is known for.
The award-winning grand piano sound in the Privia has been dramatically improved. The PX-150 utilizes more than three-times the memory of the previous generation for a more natural piano tone. In addition, Casio's proprietary sound source "AiR" (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) provides unmatched realism and detail. This engine provides seamless dynamics for a remarkably expressive and powerful performance. For further realism, the Damper Resonance simulator provides the rich sound of the strings when the sustain pedal is used.
The PX-150 also features a redesigned 88-note Tri-sensor scaled hammer action keyboard. This action features simulated Ebony and Ivory textured keys for a incredible feel, and its three sensors capture the dynamics of a performance with unparalleled speed and accuracy. To further enhance the experience, the action and the sound engine take into consideration the speed at which different-sized hammers move inside an acoustic grand relative to velocity the keys are pressed.
In additional to grand piano, the PX-150 has many other instrument tones including strings, organs, electric pianos, and bass. The PX-150 provides split and layer capability, allowing you to play bass with your left hand and have two layered tones with your right hand. Duet mode splits the keyboard into two equal ranges, allowing a student and their teacher to use the piano simultaneously. A two track recorder can even record and play back your practice and performances. The optional CS-67 stand puts the PX-150 at the proper height, and the optional SP-33 pedal system provides the same 3-pedal functionality as a grand piano.
Casio continues the tradition or providing "class compliant" USB connectivity on Privia digital pianos. This allows Privia to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Privia digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad, with the use of Apple's Camera Connection Kit.
NOTE: Power Adapter is included.
