Casio has updated its line of digital pianos with the Privia PX-S1000 and PX-S3000, 2 variants of what the company claims is the "world's slimmest grand piano". The new models use Smart Scaled Hammer Action to replicate the tactile feedback of real grand piano keys. This up-to-date type of digital keyboard also has Bluetooth and an iOS/Android app.

A number of us may remember the good old electronic keyboards we had as kids with fondness. However, Casio also has a much more extensive range of digital instruments, which extend to whole grand pianos. Most recently, the company has released what it calls the world's slimmest digital full grand piano. It is only 232 milimeters in depth, which means its thickness is reduced by 20% compared to its predecessor.

This ulta-thin Casio digital piano comes in 2 variants: the Privia PX-S1000 and Privia PX-S3000. The former has 18 different tones with 192 notes of polyphony, whereas the latter has 700 tones as well as 200 different accompaniment rhythms. Like many electronic keyboards, these Privias can also split their keyboards between tones and to support duets. Casio claims that their keys act like those of real grand pianos, thanks to Smart Scaled Hammer Action and Key Off Response.

The new Privias also feature fulll 88-Key Digital Scaling. They are also up to date in terms of wireless connectivity, with Bluetooth for audio playback through the piano's own speakers. This line of digital pianos also has a free iOS/Android app, which allows the user to save music files, adjust them for background noises such as voices and read scores. Finally, the Privia PX-S1000/PX-S3000 even has headphone jacks - 2 of them, in fact.
