The Casio PX-750 is a digital piano with touch-sensitive keys and the ability to connect to a computer via USB. It’s a mid-range model in Casio’s Privia lineup of digital pianos. The PX-750 features 88 keys at full size, so people searching for something similar to the size and feel of an acoustic grand piano will find the PX-750 meets their desires. Models are available in black, white and brown with oak styling. This model features all three foot pedals common on American grand pianos, the soft, sostenuto and sustain or damper pedal.

Overview

This model is noted for the realism of its grand piano sounds, which Casio boasts as an improvement over lower-end and earlier models. The PX-750 offers 18 different tones, recording in 2 tracks, MIDI out via USB, and 8 watt speakers on each side. The piano has the ability to split the keyboard into two tones as well as to layer multiple sounds, such as piano and violin, when pressing one key. It also features a key cover that slides down over the keys when the piano is not in use.

Major Features

This model uses a powerful sound engine and more memory than its predecessors, which allows it to feature more realistic tones than previous models. Casio uses its proprietary AiR sound source system to offer rich, realistic tones. Like many other digital pianos in its class, the PX-750 has hammer action keys, which imitate the feel of playing a grand piano, where a hammer literally strikes the piano’s strings. Additionally, the keys have been made to feel like traditional ivory and ebony, and the PX-750 uses three sensors to match the speed and velocity of playing on a real grand piano.

Pros

Many user reviews of this digital piano mention that it’s a great value. Users felt that the sounds offered by the PX-750 are as realistic as one could expect from a digital piano at this price point, and some users even felt that the sounds were even more realistic than they expected. Players liked the weight and feel of the keys and felt that they also met their expectations or were above them for a digital piano at this price. Overall, those who bought or tried this piano rated its sound and feel as its best features and the reason they bought or would buy one.

Cons

The main criticisms users had of this piano were about the housing and construction, citing that the keys sometimes made a bit of noise or that the piano began to show signs of wear after awhile such as the corners chipping. A number of users felt that they made a trade-off in the construction for the high-quality sound and feel, and that, for the price, it was a worthwhile trade-off. Some other users disliked that the piano didn’t allow multi-track recording using more than two tracks or that it didn’t have a line out other than via the headphone output, but these kinds of criticisms were frequently specific to the user’s individual need.

Conclusion

Overall, Casio’s PX-750 is an above average buy, especially for musicians who want the feel of a grand piano but don’t have the space or the money for one. If you want to spend less and still get realistic sounds from your digital piano, this is also an excellent choice. Musicians who want the versatility of multi-track recording might want to consider a workstation keyboard instead, however, and people looking for a piano with a more durable exterior may want to consider a more expensive model.

    Casio PX750 sounds great but to be honest all pianos in this price range sound great. The differences are in the details. What annoys me about this keyboard is that keys make a clicking sound when pressed. You can’t hear it at higher volume or headphones on so it’s not a big problem. Other minor problems: it only has one track memory, other keyboards in this price range have at least 5-track memory. Also, this keyboard doesn’t have a dedicated line out, you have to use the headphone jack – apparently this keyboard is not designed for live performances with stereo speakers or PA system. It’s more of a home piano.

    After reading many glowing reviews I decided to put my skepticism aside and go for it. I recently moved to a smaller home and was unable to bring my pride and joy, a beautiful upright grand. I felt unsure and uneasy about making the jump to digital as I have played a “real” piano my entire life. My hesitation was unfounded! I really enjoy this piano and cannot say enough good things about it. The sound this keyboard offers is outstanding and the feel of the keys is, I don’t know, just “right”. I would wholeheartedly recommend this keyboard to anyone who is reluctant to make the switch from acoustic to digital.
