    A breathtaking stage piano with an impossibly low price that weighs only 23.6 pounds.

    Casio Privia PX-3: Until now, if you wanted an awesome-sounding piano, that actually played like a piano, you had to haul around a 75-pound monster that cost almost two grand. No more! You can easily lift Casio’s new PX-3 keyboard controller with one hand, pay for it with a weekend of gigging, and use its 250 high-end sounds on your next club date or scoring project.

    You get dazzling vintage and cutting-edge EP’s, authentic B-3’s with dial-in rotary effects and tons of MIDI control at a fraction of the cost and weight of any other stage piano.

    Even though it’s amazingly light and affordable, you don’t have to compromise one note. The piano sound rivals keyboards costing (and weighing) three times as much. Casio’s Ivory Touch, Tri-Sensor scaled hammer action actually recreates the nuances of playing a top-tier acoustic grand. This proprietary mechanism triggers four levels of stereo piano samples in Casio’s award-winning Linear Morphing System. 128-note polyphony. Half-pedaling. Acoustic Resonance. And it’s thrilling to play through tiny combo amps and stadium PA’s.

    But the piano is just the beginning: the PX-3 offers a full-complement of stage- and studio-ready sounds: Powerful brasses, winds, basses and synth leads with switch-on portamento, plus a composer’s grab-bag of great-sounding, non-western instruments and percussion. Full editing. Sophisticated DSP.

    And the MIDI control is all there as well: The PX-3 controls four internal and four external zones. So during the performance you can play up to four additional instruments or a digital workstation right from the keyboard via MIDI or USB. Plus, you can instantly edit every internal sound with a comprehensive menu of filters, envelopes and 64 insert effects like rotary speaker, auto-wah, phasers, choruses and overdrives.

    There’s so much more: SD card and USB storage. Internal velocity maps for instant touch control. Four bands of parametric EQ. But the bottom-line is this: 88-notes of scaled-hammer, real-life acoustic grand piano in a stunning, feather-light, impossibly priced keyboard.

          I already own a px 150. I had high expectations for the px3, and they were all met. It's used, but it plays like it's new.

          Stunning. Finally Something Exists!

          By Nate Z

          from Indianapolis

          Comments about Casio Privia PX3 Digital Stage Piano:

          After having been convinced all 'Fully Weighted 88 Key Boards' are junk, here comes along Casio. I've always been a Roland junkie, but if you get a chance, play this board. I learned on a real piano, and still prefer it, but that's beginning to change. Wonderful touch, just enough resistance and utterly delicious presets. Don't know how much ROM the board has, but honestly, gigging musicians know you don't need 200 gigabytes of piano samples, as this accuracy is lost in most venues. That said, the PX-3 delivers incredible and reproduceable piano layers, and never leaves you without just a little more expression if necessary. I can finally 'deliver' to listeners what's 'inside' my head. 9/10 acoustic pianos can't even do this, and this board's only 24LBS!Might be a little weak being she's all plastic, but once again, gigging musicians know to take care and be fastidious in transportation. Get a good ATA case, and all should be well. A spilt beer or viscious drop will kill any board :)Cheers

          Old Guy - New Keys

          By BabyGrand

          from Cleveland

          Comments about Casio Privia PX3 Digital Stage Piano:

          I have played numerous electronic pianos in the last 40 years. Kurzweil, Alesis, Roland..etc. The sound of this keyboard is AMAZING. But beyond the sounds, this keyboard FEELS like a grand piano! Not just the weight, the finish on the keys is something I didn't think too much about until this board. Plus it only weighs 23lbs. This unit will change your mind about Casio. Try one out for yourself and be ready to be blown away!

          Exceptional value. Really good instrument.

          By Garrett Miller

          Comments about Casio Privia PX3 Digital Stage Piano:

          I bought this for my daughter - who is a gigging keyboardist (as am I) and cannot lift her stage piano by herself. I am very impressed by (a) the weight - 24 lbs.and (b)the piano/ep/b3 sounds and piano feel. Casio has taken the PX-330 - which I gigged with for a year - and turned it into a more than serviceable pro stage piano. My reservations (and they are few) all have to do with some of the controller features (thus 4 stars rather than 5): It's tricky to control MIDI volume on other MIDI devices from the PX3 and you cannot label the registrations. That said, this 24 pound keyboard has a better stereo piano sample and piano feel than my 75-pound main axe which costs almost three times as much. Unless I have to do a theater gig, with alot of external devices, I'd much rather take this than my big stage piano. There are some other low priced, low weight keyboards on the market (like the PX330) but none come close to being a pro keyboard. The PX3 lets you dial-in effects like phaser and wah and there's a Leslie button that dials in that effect for the b3's. Not as much editing as most pro controllers, but more than you need for 90% of your gigs. (Again, unless you are doing theater work or really accurate cover arrangements.)I'm going to buy one for myself (so my daughter will stop complaining that I'm taking hers) and if it works well I may get another for my studio set-up. Well done, Casio.

          Great action, solid controller and good sounds

          I'm currently using a PX-3 as my controller for Ivory and other assorted sounds for Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience. It's holding up great on the road and feels fantastic for piano.Great value for the money.

          Simply Amazing

          By Ox0FSuxYc

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Casio Privia PX3 Digital Stage Piano:

          After reading the reviews in Keyboard Magazine and Electronic Musician I decided to give the PX-3 a try. I am not disappointed at all. First the weight. I can't believe how awesome this keyboard action feels for a piano that is this light. Don't let the weight fool you, this is a great fully weighted action. Compared to the Yamaha P95 and even the much higher priced Roland, this feels much better.The piano sounds are very good. Unlike other pianos in this price range the Privia PX3 is really expressive. I gig regularly and so far I've got nothing but compliments on its sound. The vintage EP sounds are good too, luckily you can edit them quite a bit, with some tweaks they great for me. There are a lot of other sounds on here, I haven't had a lot of time to mess with but there are some good brass and synth sounds too. It works great as a MIDI controller in the studio - just plugged in USB, doesn't even need drivers. I just signed up for the Free gig bag that Casio is offering. Hopefully it will here soon.For anyone looking for an 88 note board - at this price its a no brainer.

          Nice and light, but...

          By not you

          from Boston

          Comments about Casio Privia PX3 Digital Stage Piano:

          The "limited edition" Privia PX3 arrived today, its box looking like it fell off the truck. I pried it out, set it up, checked out its sounds and feel. I love the keyboard action, but it's very light. If you're looking for a "real piano" feel, either keep looking or play one before buying. It's so easy to carry that I'm willing to make some compromises. I hate moving gear. If I had a road crew, I'd use a Kurzweil... Alas, the PX-3's volume knob will likely break off someday. The whole piece- except for the actual keys themselves- feels shoddy, cheesy, Casio-y. It's all plastic, but that's why it's light. The stringy two-prong electrical plug and its transformer are just insulting. A junkyard dog could easily eat the toy-like plastic sustain pedal without getting sick, but I'm not going to trust it on a gig. Sounds: The acoustic and electric piano sounds are decent. The organs and all other sounds fall (landing with a thud) between so-so and stinky. I got it for live piano only. Adjusting the 'verb, etc. at gigs will be a complete pain in the neck. I'll eventually program two or three piano presets and live with them. I say "eventually" because I just noticed a chipped key, and am sending this one back. Oh boy! This light piano won't survive the rigors of the road- no way- but wrapped in a well-padded gig bag (We'll see if the free one from Casio fits the bill), on my local car gigs, it should be okay... if I'm careful. You probably know the deal without reading any reviews: it's under a grand (in more ways than one...).
