Overview

The Casio Privia PX-330 redefines the digital piano category with unprecedented sound quality and performance in a sleek digital keyboard that's supremely portable. Featuring the latest grand piano samples and a Tri-Sensor 88-note scaled hammer action keyboard, the Casio Privia PX-330 is versatile enough for any home, studio, or stage.

Realism, expression, and dynamics
The PX-330 keyboard's grand piano sounds deliver an unprecedented level of realism and expression. Four dynamic layers of stereo piano samples are integrated with Casio's proprietary Linear Morphing System, for a grand piano sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. For added realism, the PX-330 simulates the sound of the open strings when the dampers are raised by the pedal using Acoustic Resonance DSP (digital signal processor). The Casio PX-330 also has 128-note polyphony, enough horsepower for the most demanding musical passages, and the ability to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without the worry of dropping notes. The result is a digital grand piano experience that is unsurpassed at this price.

Truly expressive touch
The Privia PX-330 features a Tri-Sensor 88-note scaled hammer action keyboard. Casio's superior engineering results in an authentic piano touch that captures every detail and nuance of your performance. This scaled hammer action provides the weight, feel, and resistance of a piano without sacrificing the portability of the instrument.

Performance, studio, or stage

The superior keyboard action, piano sound, and built-in USB MIDI interface make the Casio PX-330 the perfect music keyboard to integrate into your studio. When you're ready to take your Casio PX-330 to a gig, the built-in registration memory instantly recall splits, layers, and combinations of sounds. The Casio PX-330 also has 1/4" outputs for great live sound from your amp or the house PA system.

A 16-track recorder, pitch bend wheel, and more
While it's easy to connect the Casio PX-330 keyboard to your computer, you can easily create and compose music using its internal 16-track recorder. Use the Casio PX-330 digital keyboard's 250 on-board sounds and 180 rhythms to record up to 16 tracks. The Casio PX-330 keyboard accepts SD (secure digital) memory, so you can save your songs and take them with you or load standard MIDI files that you've downloaded from the web. With these flexible tools, you can capture moments of creativity and remember your song ideas.

The Casio PX-330 also works great as a practice tool. A built-in metronome and optional accompaniment mean you can practice in time and listen later to what you've just played. A pitch bend wheel gives you full expression for 250 tones. Plug in other instruments or an MP3 player and hear them through the Casio PX-330 keyboard's internal speakers and headphones.

Professional, versatile, and portable design
Whether you're at home, working at a studio, or out on stage, the Casio PX-330 88-key digital piano was created to tackle it all. With its light weight, you can easily take your Casio PX-330 from home to rehearsals to the gig and back with no worries. Connects your Casio PX-330 effortlessly to your computerwith USB or just as easily to a live mixer for use onstage.

The portable Casio Privia PX-330 includes the latest grand piano samples and a Tri-Sensor 88-note scaled hammer action keyboard. Features four dynamic layers of stereo piano samples, 128-note polyphony, authentic piano touch, and the ability to layer sounds. Comes with a built-in USB MIDI interface, built-in registration memory, 1/4" outputs, an internal 16-track recorder, 250 on-board sounds and 180 rhythms. The Casio Privia PX-330 keyboard also includes secure digital memory, a built-in metronome, optional accompaniment, a pitch bend wheel, and internal speakers and headphones. The Casio Privia PX-330 is an extremely lightweight digital piano keyboard that is eminently portable and connects easily to PCs using XP, or Vista, to Mac computers, and to live audio mixers through a USB connection.

Ease of Use: I had played this in the store for the first time and I found it fairly easy to get the basics piano sounds called up without using the manual or asking for help. It was not hard to get a basic drum rhythm going either or to do a keyboard split. Once I got home I found most tasks easy to accomplish. Sometimes I used the manual, sometimes I didn�ۡ���t. When I did use the manual I found it was really laid out well. Features: This is an 88-key semi-weighted action digital piano that weighs only 25 lbs. A drum machine type accompaniment is on board as well as decent sounding built in speakers. Also included is a 16 track recorder, metronome, power adaptor, LED screen, 2 headphone jacks, USB port, MIDI IN and OUT, stereo 1/4�ۡ�ݕ�_ line outs, auto accompaniment, music presets (these can include chord progressions/songs that you can sequence, save and play along with), registration presets (sound related settings), duet mode for teaching, an attachable music stand and an SD memory card slot for saving data. Not to be missed is a great feature that allows you to plug in an external source (2- 1/4�ۡ�ݕ�_ jacks) to be heard through the instruments speakers. I�ۡ���m thinking maybe an Ipod, another keyboard or a microphone perhaps. Nice. My PX-330 is made in a black finish and it looks nice. It�ۡ���s very professional looking. Some sleek lines also. The rhythms/beats are a joy to play along with. There are 180 of them and you can also write your own. Any beat you might need for most circumstances is available. And there is a layer feature. By the way there�ۡ���s 128 note polyphony. No note dropping. Expressiveness/Sounds: I�ۡ���ve mostly been playing the acoustic piano sounds since I got this. It�ۡ���s not as good as the more expensive instruments but I honestly don�ۡ���t feel I�ۡ���ve compromised because of the price at all. Privia talks about acoustic resonance and 4 layer piano sounds, etc. The bottom line is that this piano sounds great-very comfortable, realistic and satisfying to play. I am mostly gonna use it at home to practice. But I will take it to most, if not all, my jazz gigs. For the jazz gigs I probably will not bring an amp. The PX-330 built in speaker system sounds that good! I can even bring my Nord Electro 2 and plug it into the Line In inputs. At some point I might even add the PX-330 to my stage setup for my main gig which is with a High Energy Dance band. My main concern would be limited sounds. I could add a module though and be good to go. I was somewhat impressed with the non-piano sounds. They are not spectacular but then again this is a digital piano not a synthesizer. I found at least one decent Rhodes sound, bass, synth, string patch, clav (not great but useable) and organ that I liked enough to use in a pinch. It�ۡ���s nice to be able to do some jazz organ, electric piano for variety during a cocktail hour or jazz gig. Did I mention there�ۡ���s a pitch wheel? Reliability: This product is made by Privia which is a division of Casio. Yes ladies and gentleman, this is a Casio keyboard. I don�ۡ���t know the reliability history of either company. We�ۡ���ll see how it holds up. The input jacks on the back of this instrument seem rather flimsy and I am going to plug in and unplug very gingerly. The rest of the instrument seems pretty solid. But I believe it�ۡ���s mostly plastic. Customer Support: I�ۡ���ve already been on the phone with Casio once already to find out if the gig bag they sell for the PX-320 will work for the 330. I called rather late on Friday and they said they would probably get back to me on Monday because they close on weekends. It�ۡ���s still Sunday and I haven�ۡ���t heard back from them yet. But they definitely responded professionally on the phone and I am confident they have decent customer service. But I had called Guitar Center earlier that day to see if they had the case in the store and could measure it, etc. My guy there, Tommy, said he would get back to me about which case might work for me. He did call me back and told me the 320 case would work. I didn�ۡ���t ask Tommy but I assume Casio gave him the right answer at some point and did it fast. Kudos to Tommy and Guitar Center for good service. Overall Rating: Yamaha digital pianos seem to always get the best reviews for the most part. They make some great digital pianos. I almost bought one myself a few times. But they always seemed too heavy or they didn�ۡ���t have the features I wanted. And they were too expensive. The same goes for piano products made by other companies. Privia has gotten a lot of great buzz lately and rightly so. They�ۡ���ve been gaining ground on Yamaha in quality if not market share for this price point/price range. I don�ۡ���t think Yamaha or any manufacturer has anything near the price range, features and low weight that can touch the PX-330. I would recommend this piano to professional musicians for stage, home studio and/or home practicing use. And students/hobbyists who are looking for an inspirational home digital piano should give this instrument a hard look (as well as the more basic PX-130). With the PX-330, Privia has knocked one out of the park.

I think Casio has a serious design flaw with the sound and that needs to be fixed. The keybed feel and sounds are top notch. Unfortunately, as a live musician, I can't use them. It's a shame. I need to return this board.
The sound configurations are down right strange. Plugging in a 1/4" out does not disable the internal speakers. In order to do that, you have to insert a 1/8" plug into the headphone jack, which seemed to cut the decibal level coming out of the 1/4" line out. The display is fine, but the labels surrounding the buttons are extremely difficult to see. I would have to bring a stage light on stage to read them.
Solid, no issues.
Good value.

Poor reliability

By Spudd

from The Villages, Fl

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

I bought two of these because I am a professional and needed a backup, because these units fail electronically after relatively little use. The circuit board on both of these units failed after a short time. I originally bought them for their light weight and sound and piano action. But, you get what you pay for. Cheap price, cheap construction. This would be a good unit for an amateur in a home but totally useless to a demanding professional. I now will stick to my reliable (but heavy) Roland.

Unexpected Benefit of Built-in Speakers

By PhilBast

from Cypress, CA

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

Another review complained that the internal speakers continue to be active even when the 1/4" output is in use. I wanted to counter that this was an unexpected benefit for me when I gig with the keyboard. The active speakers create a very subtle resonant vibration in the keyboard that creates a "feel" very similar to my acoustic grand at home. I noticed an uptick in the expressiveness of my playing as a result of this. The effect is almost subconscious, but I really do notice its absence when I use other keyboards.

This is an amazing board, especially considering the reputation Casio has had in past. Highly recommended.

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

Have owned this keyboard for a year and a half, and am very happy with it. Amongst other things, the light weight makes it very portable (some other keyboards feel like they must have an inch or two of concrete in them--for ballast??--don't know, but they're heavy!) A few minor criticisms and suggestions to the manufacturer: 1)The labels for the function buttons should be back-lit to allow one to see them in low-light conditions (they're hard to see--need a flashlight if ambient light is low); 2)the organ sounds leave somewhat to be desired--they're not nearly as good or realistic as the piano sounds; 3) I wish I could independently adjust the relative volumes of the individual voices with the preset layered options (example: the strings of the Strings-Piano option need to be toned down as they tend to dominate, or almost dominate the piano sound)
All in all, the piano sounds are great and have had a fun time with the instrument--would recommend it to anyone, beginner or accomplished musician, who wants a variety of quality sounds, along with the portability it allows.

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

wife is very happy with keyboard and will be using it at home and gigs for a long time.

very nicely set up and solid working keyboard.
best value for money, you are getting a very high value grand piano for a fraction of cost of other over priced pianos.

Such a deal!!!

By BigStan

from Chicago-area

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

i
I give a little less than a top score because the print is small and dark gray against black for describing button effects. Also I would love to have seen more demo songs in the built-in memory. However the action on this keyboard is terrific. If you hit the key less you have a soft sound and pound the key and it rings out loudly. It is like having a real piano. SUCH A DEAL!!! For people who want this to be a gig keyboard it really wasn't meant for this and a gig keyboard sells for way more. But it is great some guys are able to still use it as such.

Great buy...I can't say it enough. I am very pleased with the keyboard.
Exceptional piano sound and feel for a keyboard in this price range.
Relatively light keyboard that looks and feels well made.
An exceptionally great buy for the money. Are there better products available for purchase? Absolutely, but be preparred to spend three to fours times more for them.

Very Good !

By Juan Gomez

from Puerto Rico

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

This is a very good digital piano for the money. The feel is excellent and the sounds are pretty good too. I have to get mine checked because it makes strange noises sometimes, ususally when I play big chords or when I play heavy "tumbaos" (im a salsa pianist). But besides that, you get more than what you pay for. It's also really light weighing only 30 pounds or so.
The features are good, but the controls could be easier...
Good quality...
Excellent Value!

Casio Privia PX 330

By Shannon Via

from D.C. area

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

I am not a Casio fan in general, but I needed a gig piano and took a chance on this. I am so glad I did. As a bit of an accoustic snob (I have an accoustic baby grand in my home) I was really worried about the responsiveness of the keys and the feel. This is a fantastic keyboard, I can switch between this board and my $15,000 accoustic at home with almost no akward readjustment at all. Get a decent and amp and you will get the tones you need. The lower octaves and deep and soulful, the high octaves are like gorgeous soprano descant notes - to trilling bells on the baby. I like this set of keys so much I'm going to buy one for my church to replace their board. Casio has changed their game in the last few years I guess because this board competes with the big boys in my opinion!

Super value - missing a few things

By David Lovrien

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Casio Privia PX-330 88-Key Digital Keyboard:

Amazing price for a really nice keyboard, but I had to return mine for one simple reason: it is impossible to adjust the volumes of the different sounds in Split mode. The manual is misleading - Layer mode has a setting but not Split mode. Verified this with Casio support. I need acoustic bass in the left hand and piano in the right, and the volumes didn't not match. I exchanged my PX-330 for a PX-3 and I am very happy now, although I really miss the internal speakers.
