The Coming-of-Age of the Electric Piano

There comes a time in the development of a digital technology when it matches and then outstrips its analogue predecessor. Consider the movement from vinyl to streaming; it might have taken time, but the outcome was inevitable. That same phenomenon took place with the electric piano about a decade ago. While the grand piano will always have its place in the rich tapestry of music, modern electric pianos are so versatile and excellently made that you can replicate the sound in the comfort of your own living. There are many reasons why they have become the smarter choice, but here are three to get you started.


  1. Smart

In days gone by, electric pianos lacked some of the nuance of a full piano. But with the advent of the hammer action keyboard, those days are well and truly gone. Each key in the Privia PX- S7000 is counterweighted so that it feels and plays exactly like a grand piano. Casio’s signature dual sensor and digital processing technology means that you can caress a melody from your instrument as though you were on a full grand piano in the Royal Albert Hall or the Sydney Opera House. The cutting edge technology offers you a limitless playability. There is nothing to get in the way of the music flowing from heart, to fingers to the keys. All you need to do is play.


  1. Stylish

Music has never, and never will be, about how you look. It is all about the soul and the heart. However, there is nothing wrong with a bit of inspiration from the beauty around us. After all, Gustav Holst composed a symphony inspired by the beauty of the celestial bodies. With that in mind, the Privia range is purposely designed to inspire you towards greatness. The PS-S6000 is a truly sleek instrument, with walnut side panels and a gloss black top that feels Scandinavian in its minimalism. Of course, none of this compromises the playability or the power of the processing. It should just help ease you into that moment of flow, where anything becomes possible the moment your fingers meet the keyboard.


  1. Slim

Gone are the days of the ‘spare room’ in your house. This is a luxury few can afford. As a result, we need to be more considerate with how we fill what little space we have. At a mere twenty-three centimetres deep, the Casio Privia PX-5000 is the world’s slimmest digital 88 key piano. To put that in perspective, the average person’s hand is 19cm. Housing the latest of Casio’s patented audio processing units, a world of music is at your fingertips. This electric piano doesn’t need much space, but it is incredibly powerful.


In this day and age, the reasons not to own an electric piano are becoming fewer and fewer. With the development of audio processing technology, they have become truly powerful instruments in their own right.
