Casio Music UK has announced the release of two new 88-key digital pianos to their Privia range, available from September 2021.
The expansion of the range sees the addition of the PX-S1100 and the more advanced PX-S3100, which covers a variety of genres due to its 700 tones and 200 rhythms. The more expensive piano also boasts an auto-accompaniment feature, pitch bend wheel and live controllers, which can be manipulated mid-performance.

Two years on from the introduction of the Privia series, these new models have had a revision of the internal structures to provide an overall richer sound, improved sound expression and audio system.
They include a Wireless MIDI and Audio Adaptor, allowing users to stream audio from their phone or computer and use the instrument as a Bluetooth speaker. The digital pianos are also compatible with Casio’s ‘Chordana Play for Piano’ app, ideal for those wanting to learn new pieces at their own pace or those wanting to control the piano’s functions remotely via the app.

Portability is a key feature too: both products have a slim depth of 232mm, weigh just over 11kg and have built-in battery power support, allowing the pianos to be carried on the go.
Neil Evans, Head of Casio EMI, adds that the two new additions “deliver a much more expressive playing style” and “truly offer any musician the best in performance”.
The PX-S1100 will retail for £615, whilst the PX-S3100 will be available for £839.
