Casio Privia PX-S1000 Review

Casio Privia PX-S1000 Review

Marketed as the world’s slimmest piano, the target audience for the Casio Privia PX-S1000 is very clear. This digital piano is mainly meant for the musician who is on the move constantly and does not want to lug around something massive and heavy. The flip side of these “ultra-portable” devices is that they often come with some compromises on the feature front. This can often be a deal breaker for musicians as most musicians would prefer a better instrument even...

The Yamaha P115 is meant to replace the P105 and has some rather large shoes to fill. Yamaha had the tough choice of making this digital piano both feature-rich and high-quality. We gave...

There is a unique problem facing the digital piano market. If you are looking for a digital piano that has fully-weighted hammer action keys then you have to sacrifice portability.

Roland has come out with an answer to this conundrum in the form of the RD-64. It is a...
