CASIO to present latest generation of
PRIVIA digital pianos at NAMM Norderstedt/Anaheim, 24 January 2019– CASIO will be showcasing its new PX-S digital pianos at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, USA, between 24 and 27 January. The two models, the PX-S1000 and PX-S3000, form the latest generation in the successful Privia series. Taking their cue from the slogan “Slim. Stylish. Smart.”, they are extremely compact digital pianos with hammer action and 88 keys.
The PX-S1000 und PX-S3000 are the world's slimmest digital pianos with hammer action
These two PX-S models owe their low depth of 232 millimetres to the newly developed Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard, which provides the player with an authentic piano touch. The Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR sound source ensures lifelike reproduction of playing and sound properties of acoustic instruments. What’s more, the PX-S1000 and PX-S3000 also offer Bluetooth audio reproduction. This gives users the option of using the piano as a Bluetooth loudspeaker and playing along to their favourite songs. The newly developed loudspeaker system excels thanks to its powerful sound and impressive volume. Beyond that the „Chordana Play for Piano“ app is available for free for both models. It can be used as a practical remote controller or also as an interactive learning tool. The new PX-S models are flexible in their use thanks to optional battery-powered operation – perfect for practice and performance. The PX-S1000 (RRP 649. - €) will be available in black and white while the PX-S3000 (RRP 899. - €) comes in black.

CASIO also sought to improve the digital piano’s performance in terms of sound and piano touch. The first Privia, the PX-100, was launched in Europe in spring of 2004. Since then, the Privia series has produced a lasting, positive effect on development of the digital piano market. CASIO is setting yet another significant milestone in 2019 with the new PX-S models.
