OVERVIEW

Contemporary digital piano with a grand feel.

The CDP-130 is a graded-hammer action 88-key digital piano with Casio's AHL sound source and a rich hall reverb effect. Simple, yet straightforward, the CDP-130 has everything you need to sit down and play. The AHL sound source has built-in tones including piano and acoustic instrument tones that sound better than ever before. The CDP-130 is also equipped with a warm, lush reverb with the acoustics of a grand concert hall. The keyboard features a spring-less hammer system that is similar to the one used by grand pianos that provides a keyboard touch that is naturally firm. Lower notes play relatively heavier than higher notes, just like the keys on a grand piano.

For songwriting, every instrument "contains" different songs and styles. I miss the old upright piano I used to have, but this digital piano has a feel and sound that come very close to what I rememember. Although mainly a guitarist, I like to write "piano songs" sometimes, and the Oxygen 49 keyboard I use for recording synth parts etc. doesn't quite do it. There may be better pianos, but this one sounds, feels, and works great for me. And for an amazing price.

I started using this after using a 72 key for about 10 years with all kinds of sounds and rhythms, etc. The pressure I had to use with this one was much stiffer, and it took me several weeks to get used to the sound. I tried putting it through speakers, but it was louder by itself than with the speakers. I like it mainly because it has the full 88 keyboard, but as far as sound and ease in operating, it's not what I expected. It's sound is more "tinny" than I wanted. The demo sounds wonderful, but I can't make it sound that good!!

      Comments about Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano:

      I bought this because I wanted to learn piano, and it is exactly what I needed. Simple interface (Power, Demo, Function, metronome, and hall buttons)
      I'm sure it isn't as nice as the more expensive models, but the action is nice, and it is velocity sensitive.

        Comments about Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano:

        My sister-in-law has the CDP-120, and I love that one, but when I married my wife, the keyboard stayed. I searched far and wide reading a lot of descriptions and reviews, and this is the best deal out there for acoustic-piano grade weighted keys. I grew up with our family acoustic piano, and this has the feel, and for 700USD less than the competing brands. As for the poor sound and lack of selections, the speakers fill a room with sound, the volume is adjustable, and if you want more sounds, run it through ableton or protools. Love this keyboard.

            Comments about Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano:

            I bought this for my wife as a surprise gift for Christmas. It arrived early and of course, she was the one home to receive the package. I think she was a little overwhelmed and greatly surprised! I also added the M-Audio S~2 sustain pedal per another review I had read -excellent choice.
            The piano has a great tone, all 88 keys rather than the 61-key keyboard she had, so she can play all the classical pieces. It is a lot easier to move around than her upright piano, and I LOVE that part too! She has begun practicing more and getting more involved all the time. The piano is a great relaxation for her at the end of a busy day as a scrub nurse.

            I will keep it short, long time sound engineer and performer here.

            For 400 the CDP-130 has the best feel of any controller out there with the hammer action it is a whole different feel over a standard velocity sensitive keyboard. It plays as good as some weighted boards that cost 700 or more.

            The internal sounds are okay the piano sounds decent.

            I use in studio for recording usb out to my internal synths and piano in my PC. All I can say is it's huge!!!

            Great piano very satisfied so far!!!!

                Comments about Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano:

                I recently started looking for a digital piano for my own personal use at home. Being a moderate budget, a $1000+ DP was out of the question. I looked around and decided on the CDP 130 and I am not disappointed one bit. The grand piano sound is incredible and the lack of 100+ instruments and sounds does not bother me. I wasn't looking for a toy, just a great sounding piano and this has made me very happy.

                      Comments about Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano:

                      I've been looking for a MIDI controller with the action of an acoustic piano. The CDP-130 was on sale so I decided to go for it. So far, it has exceeded my expectations. The hammer-type action feels wonderful, like that of the baby grand at my parents' house. I didn't expect much from the onboard sound, but it's actually quite good - good enough that I haven't even used it as a MIDI controller yet! The internal speakers aren't phenomenal, so if you want to get the most out of the onboard sounds, hook it into a home stereo or studio monitors.

                      This is so so so so so good for the price. I hardly ever write reviews but this instrument deserves recognition.

                        Once a year, I visit family for a week or so. During that time, I don't have access to a piano, so it really puts me off my practicing plan. I bought this and had it shipped to my family's house so I could have something to practice on. I'm pleased with it for that purpose. The action isn't going to trick anyone into thinking it's a real piano, but the keys are weighted and touch-responsive, and so plenty good for keeping my chops up. The sounds are adequate, especially considering the mediocre speakers. It's also portable enough that I could box it up and stick it somewhere out of the way until I visit again next year. I would definitely recommend this as a secondary practice instrument, but not for much more than that.

                          I purchased this digital piano because I had to get rid of acoustic due to space. I did a lot of research and did not have a huge amount of money to spend. I wanted something 28th weighted keys and a full keyboard. The Casio is great. I didn't want a digital keyboard with hundreds of sounds, so this works well for me.
