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.

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.

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.
Excellent value for the money, and VERY portable. Former pro pop/jazz, I've been using it to do some volunteer playing at homes for the elderly for more than a year, and it does well with just the included amplifier for sing-along up to 30 people, and quiet background music for up to 100. the keyboard sounds better through a quality external keyboard or pa amp. Piano sounds are very natural when done that way and rivals true pro keyboards. the included amp sound is a little thin, esp when volume is pushed. Sound decays faster than a real piano,only important for the slowest music. (this is not adjustable, as it would be on some professional digital pianos.)Some of the included instrument sounds are mediocre. weighting is fine; i've felt real pianos that were actually lighter touch. Very light wt. carry compared to competitor, soft case is fine for this piano. Be careful when hooking up to externals though, the jacks are plastic, not unique in this price range.
I find the privia 330 a great product for the price. Better then expected keyboard feel. Light but well made.
I used this keyboard extensively with my last band, and found it to be an amazing unit for the price. I am currently looking for another one as the last one was owned by the band, and as it turns out, a year later, I still can't find anything better on the market, and it appears I will be re-purchasing the same keyboard. Phenomenal sound, amped or not... Never had a problem with it reliability-wise in the year or so that we humped it to and from gigs. Do yourself a favor and get a custom case/bag for it -- we spent $300 on a generic airline case for it, the thing was so bulky and heavy it made it not worth bringing the keyboard to smaller gigs... Would have been much better with the Privia 320 gig bag that other reviewers talked about. The keyboard is only 25 lbs by itself, so don't go saddling yourself with a 50 lb case that makes it unwieldy.... I cannot say one bad thing about the keyboard itself tho... And I have two grands and two studio pianos.... You can't come near the sound on this thing for less than twice the price, and the weighted keys are perfect (and adjustable with a push-button!). Bottom line, if this is in your price range, buy it, you cannot get a better keyboard for the price.
Got this Piano Last week. I looked at every Digital Piano I could find in Central Ohio for over a month. I was very hesitant to buy Casio just becasue of the name....but the more reviews I did and the more Piano's I played, I just kept coming back to this one. It is by far the Best Digital Piano that you can buy for under 1200 bucks. I tested about everything out there. It does Everything. Keys feel awesome, very touch sensitive which I love. Plugs into CPU easy, you can use at as a Midi Controller, has a ton of sounds to play with...just blows away the competition in my opinion. I bought the Furniture stand and the three pedal board with it and it looks awesome in the living room. People have came over & can't how realistic it is when thumping on the keys. I'm very happy with my buy!
I bought my PX330 back on Cyber Monday in 2009. I wanted to replace my small Yamaha keyboard for a full-sized digital piano for both the range and the weighted-key touch. I have compared the prices, features, the layouts, and the "feel" of many of the top brand digital piano makers. Despite the fact that most reviews I have read praise Yamaha and Korg, I ended up buying the Casio. Why? Pros: - To me, the keys felt heavier than the Yamaha YPG/DGX series. In a good way, or course. In other words, the Yamaha keys were too light for me. Also, Yamahas' speakers seemed to be too quiet. - There are a lot of extra features that you get without paying over $1,000. - To me, the piano voices are great: from mellow to bright, and in between. A huge difference from my old Yamaha keyboard (granted, it was really old). - Tons of voices! Some I will probably never use. - Built-in speakers = I don't have to throw down more cash for an amp! Cons: - No dust cover. Had to buy one separately. Not that big of deal though. - Some features are hard to get to or activate, so I keep the manual at hand. - Some features may seem superfluous or under minded (i.e. guessing which key makes which drum kit noise) - I wish the speakers were louder. Too loud (max) and the piano may rattle and the sound quality diminishes. Yet, I would rather have higher quality softer sound than lower quality louder sound, which is what I got with the PX330. Overall: Very Satisfied. I would buy it again, especially from Guitar Center. They were very helpful, indeed. Closing thoughts: My best advice would be to do research. Read reviews. Go to a retail store and test different pianos out. Ask them questions. Ask yourself which one satisfies your taste in sound, feel, and features. I did, and the Casio PX330 was the winner.
I bought one of these keyboards. Took it home into my studio. Hooked it up to my Yamaha PA system, that outputs thru JBL speakers. Piano sounds were terrible. Tweaked the EQ and checked everything that I could to find the source of the "awful" piano sound. After much pain-staking attempts at locating the source of what was making the piano sound like it was under water, I concluded that it was the keyboard sound source itself. Then I looked at the name again. Casio. That explained it. Took it back to Guitar Center the next day and bought a Yamaha YPG 635 instead. Much better. Sorry Casio, but I just cannot support your products whern it comes to true sound. Yamaha wins, hands down. look at what professionals are playing. Doubt you will see Casio logos up on stage much of the time. Better luck next time.
I wanted to buy my daughter a nice entry level digital keyboard.At first only knew wanted weighted keys.Then began to research narrowed down to this or yamaha ygp 635 I had a friend of mine with years experience in music business rythe two out side by side. sound wise even or perhaps an edge to casio. key feel even features that you get with Casio that you don't with Yamaha midi connection, speaker output connection both in and out, slot memory card 16 track recorderbest over all by far
An excellent keyboard for the money. Easy to play and the keyboard action is very good. The classical piano sound is awesome. I looked at other pianos like Korg, Roland and Yamaha, but for the money you can't beat Casio Privia. The price is very reasonable as well and the customer service from Guitar Center is excellent. I am using this digital piano to teach my grand-daugther how to play the piano.
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.
