Class Piano Lab Pianos: Casio

Casio now has a complete line of 88-note, weighted key, digital pianos that are comparable in quality and features to those of the "traditional" companies: Roland, Korg, and Yamaha. Please visit Casio's homepage for a full listing of their products. Casio digital pianos are in a class by themselves in both features and cost. Although Casio has been making inexpensive keyboards for quite some time (just go to Walmart or Target), they are a relatively "new-kid-on-the-block" where class piano lab pianos are concerned. In true Casio fashion, they have chosen to give the customer as many features as is possible in a comparably priced keyboard. Casio has an impressive line of pianos, most of which would work OK for a traditional class piano lab. However, several of Casio's top-of-the-line pianos have features that might make them unsuitable or might drive the teacher to distraction. For example, several models have keys that LIGHT UP WITH DIFFERENT COLORS and flash randomly like a virtual DISCO BALL -- WOW!!

Seriously however, Casio is not manufacturing several models of digital pianos that are suitable for a class piano lab and have demonstrated reliability on the same level as Roland, Yamaha, and Korg. See Reliability.
