Conclusion and score
This Casio piano provides a lot of bang for the buck, coming in at a lower price than the company’s other “grand” pianos. We give it a 4.5 out of 5 thanks to its weighted and touch-sensitive keys, its dedicated button for grand piano sound (which makes it easy for students to find that sound without having to play with the touchscreen), its realistic-feeling keys, and its moderate price. It also looks good both in home or on a stage. Check best price.
