About the Product
10 tones, integrated metronome and excellent digital effects: The CDP-130 provides the perfect introduction to the fascinating world of the keyboard. The improved loudspeaker system ensures an impressive piano sound, which can be made even more spectacular using the built-in Hall effect button: At the touch of a button, concert hall reverb can be applied to the sound of the piano, adding authenticity to your own performance. The improved string tone ensures that each piece of music is a unique, memorable experience.
The successor to the popular PX-150, the Privia PX-160 utilizes Casio’s famous AiR Sound Source and its remarkable Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard. With several enhancements in sounds and features over the previous generation, the PX-160 continues to provide world-class features and style at an unbeatable price.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano
  • The keys feel like a real piano and get pushed down like one. Looks sleek and is well designed! It's a professional instrument that certainly keeps you motivated to keep on learning!
  • A nice keyboard to practise on. Perfect for DAW usage. The piano sound won't win any prizes, but its not bad especially with a little reverb on. The keys have a nice weight to them.
  • Beautiful-sounding piano and makes learning a real joy. Really pleased with the quality of the piano, the weighted-keys and sound is superb
  • Absolutely great for its price. The weighted hammer keys felt really natural and the sounds it produce are quite good. It has been nearly 9 months now and I still do not see any signs of deterioration.
  • Sounds great. Very nice weighted keys.
Casio PX-160 Privia Digital Piano
  • Keys have nice grip to them
  • The piano itself sounds excellent at this price point. I played several models at a music store, and this one beat nearly all of them. I think the Yamaha P115 sounded better, but only ever so slightly.
  • It has the weighted keys, which the piano teacher said was a must, comes with the stool, stand,-everything you see in the picture.
  • When I first got this piano, I thought it sounded great (especially through headphones) and the keys felt great. I felt like the keys would play a bit too loudly even when I was playing softly but not a big deal.
  • Unusually large gap between white and black keys, sometimes my fingernails get caught in there. Ouch.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano
  • It's full size, though still fairly lightweight and easy to move around. Not too many confusing buttons and settings, great sound and I love playing it.
  • I'm a guitar player trying to learn a bit of keyboard and music theory, and I wanted something simple, but with decent piano sound and a full size keyboard with a good feel to it.
  • Looks sleek and is well designed! It's a professional instrument that certainly keeps you motivated to keep on learning!
  • My only downside is the foot pedal doesn't have any feel of weight or presence to it, being a small, plastic sustain pedal.
Casio PX-160 Privia Digital Piano
  • Very easy to remove keyboard from stand and transport
  • Because of the size, this package will be sorted differently. It's called an irreg and its handled differently.
  • I'm sure I will upgrade the bench at some point to something with storage or a larger size, but right now it works just fine.
  • The digital piano is the perfect size for the space; the stand seems to be solid wood; the keyboard is a full size piano keyboard
  • Didn't expect it to be so big, but size didn't really bug me. Don't get me wrong, this is a solid piano, but I would just recommended to save up and buy a better one.

What customers say about "Features"
Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano
  • You should note of course, the lack of stand as most people tend to already have one and the Pedal is a little flimsy but still perfectly functional.
  • The sound is great and it looks fantastic on the Casio CS-44PC5 Piano Stand which I bought along with it.
  • Music stand works a treat. Spot on for anyone!
  • The headphones plug in point is effective to stop any disturbance to the family. Without waffling on, in my opinion, this is a cheap and basic digital piano for those eager to explore the idea of playing the piano without spending a great deal of money.
  • The pedal that comes with it is fairly cheap feeling but you can get a nice alternative very cheap.
Casio PX-160 Privia Digital Piano
  • The weight of the keys, the sensitivity of the pedals, and my parents telling me I need to practice more.
  • The pedals work great. (I haven't used the single pedal that also came with it as I got the package with the '3 pedals'.) It sounds gorgeous!
  • Comes with small clips to hold the pedal cord behind the right leg, and I tied up the power adapter behind the back board.
  • Piano wobbles while playing big passages. Makes it a little harder to impress your friends
  • Sheet music stand feels cheap and is not adjustable. Also can't be used if the keyboard is up against a wall
