NAMM 2019: Casio launches CDP-S100, CDP-S350
Two compact digital pianos with new sound engines and key action.
The Casio CDP-S100
Casio has unveiled the CDP-S100 and CDP-S350, two compact digital pianos perfect for entry-level pianists.
Both pianos are designed for a smooth, dynamic and expressive sound. This is achieved via a Dynamic Stereo Sound Engine – that uses four times the sample size as previous engines – and a dual 8W built-in speaker system.
Additionally, both models are designed to mimic the feel of playing on an actual piano. A new Scale Hammer Action II mechanism – with simulated ebony and ivory textured keys – emulates the authentic weighting usually found on acoustic pianos.
There is a difference, however, in the software department. The CDP-S100 comes loaded with a selection of 10 sounds, while the CDP-S350 is stacked with 54 registration memories and 700 instrument tones.
Rounding out both pianos’ features is a lightweight, ultra-compact design, which greatly enhances portability.
