Kashio Tadao established Casio in 1946. Originally a small subcontractor factory that made parts and gears for microscopes, Casio built Japan’s first electric calculator in 1954, which began the company’s transformation into the consumer-electronics powerhouse it is today. Perhaps best known for its calculators, digital cameras, and watches, Casio entered the musical instrument business with the launch of the Casiotone in 1980.

Casio’s current line of digital pianos consists of nine vertical and five slab models. The Privia line’s PX-160 slab is the least expensive ensemble model, and four of the five Privia slabs offer an optional stand-and-pedal module that turns them into three-pedal pianos with support for half-pedaling. At a mere 24 or 25 pounds, they are also some of the lightest digital pianos available. The AP and GP models are marketed under the Celviano label. All Casio digital pianos use a three-sensor, weighted, and scaled (graded) Tri-Sensor hammer action with ebony- and ivory-feel keys. Casio digital pianos are available at music retailers, consumer electronics stores, warehouse clubs, and online.
