Digital Piano Review – What you should know!
Compared to previous Casio models, we experienced that the PX-130 comes with significant improvement on sound quality. It beats the competition when it comes to the sound of digital pianos. Sounds that come from this model are perfect for classical pieces due to its classical piano pedals. When set to the Grand Plan, there are two settings – Classic for gentle sounds and Modern for more lively sounds.
As it goes for playing the instrument, you can record jam sessions up to 5,000 notes thanks to the sequencer. With its USB post, you can also connect you PC to the PX-130, allowing you to transfer songs back and forth. It is also excellent for learning and practice through the Duet Mode. A student and the instructor can play on the keyboard at the same time.
When it comes to the value, it’s surely worth every penny. The features you get for the money are all excellent. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, this digital piano is an excellent choice and the investment will be worth it.

Digital Piano Review finds the Casio Privia PX-130 to be an overall excellent digital piano, suitable for anyone, making it a great investment
Here’s what one of the owners had to say about the Casio Privia PX-130:“I didn’t know much about keyboards, but a respected piano teacher recommended the Privia PX-130. What’s not to like? It’s GREAT! I mean, it sounds great, it feels great, the keys are weighted and it really feels and sounds like a big nice piano. This is a serious piano that has classic good looks and will look good in your home years from now (unlike the gimmicky keyboards with lots of buttons). Anyway, if you need a piano for the first time or as an upgrade, this is it…” (Jon G.)
