CASIO500 - 750 euros | 700 - 1040 dollars

The ideal instrument for beginners and everyone who wants to give piano-playing a real chance. As an ensemble piano, the CDP-200R combines an impressive piano sound with the features of a modern keyboard. The digital piano enters new sound dimensions with the extensive range of rhythms and accompaniment functions, as well as additional tones. The hammer action keyboard also offers an absolutely authentic play feeling and makes interpreting piano and keyboard pieces a pure pleasure. With its wide range of functions – arpeggiator, sampling function, registration memory and much more – the CDP-200R leaves no wishes unfulfilled.

Dual-element AHL (Acoustic & Highly-compressed Large-waveform) sound source for exquisite tone quality

Newly improved high-quality tones, including piano and other acoustic instrument tones! The dual-element system uses waveforms of separate samples of the same notes at strong and light key pressures.

Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard for authentic grand piano feel

A spring-less hammer system that is similar to the one used by grand pianos provides a keyboard touch that is naturally firm. Lower notes play relatively heavier than higher notes, just like the keys on a grand piano.

Everything about the Privia is designed and built to produce true concert grand piano sound and feel.

Touch Response

Touch Response let’s you add delicate nuances to notes by varying how much pressure you apply to keyboard keys.

Digital effects

Use effects to add reverb for more depth and breadth in your music.
Bass-reflex speaker system for richer sound
