🥰Hi all! We’re gonna compare one of our best selling piano series – the Casio Privia PX-S digital pianos! Which include 2 amazing pianos – the PX-S 1000 and PX-S 3000!
😋With the PX-S series, Casio attempted to merge innovation with some choice risks to make a piano that could be both slim and immensely playable, the results of which are impressive on paper. Some features new to the Privia-series were also incorporated from Casio’s acoustic-digital hybrid Celviano series, giving the PX-S series enhanced acoustic simulation and sound quality.
So what are you getting for the upgrade to the PX-S 3000? Let’s look at some details of the pianos first.
😃The biggest difference when compared to the PX-S1000 is the inclusion of two assignable knobs. These make the PX-S3000 much more suited for performances, since you can modify performances on the fly. Furthermore, there’s also a pitch bend wheel that makes synth sounds a lot more expressive.
🤩The updated engine includes new sample sets. When comparing these to the ones found on the Privia PX-560 (and other older Privia instruments), it shows a definite improvement.
🤩This can be attributed to the improved reverb, space, and resonance simulation algorithms available on the PX-S3000. These algorithms help bring the sounds to life quite nicely by placing them in a simulated space.
🤩Some have described the PX-S3000 as a digital piano/arranger hybrid, and the fact that you’re getting 700 sounds here is a huge upgrade over the 18 sounds on the PX-S1000.
😀The true strength of the PX-S3000 over the PX-S1000 are the other sounds on offer.
Electric pianos include both synthesized and amped-up variations of classic sounds.
😀Whether you’re going for the 70s-style Wurlitzer and Rhodes sounds or the famous FM-synthesis sounds of the 80s, there’s a lot of authentic tones available here.
Harpsichords and vibraphones also come with many variations, including a pretty good music box and xylophone emulation.
😀However, organs are where the PX-S3000 really excels. The responsive, not overly heavy keys make glides and organ-specific playstyles easy to do, and the knobs mean you can simulate drawbar effects to a certain degree as well.
