In this brief comparison, we are going to be putting two products head to head. The Music Critic reviews can help point you towards models and brands that suit your needs. If you enjoy this article, you can also check out the full version here.
Contestant number one is the Yamaha P45.
The challenger is the Casio Privia PX-760. If you want to find a console digital piano that is a really good substitute for an acoustic piano, this might be the right piano for you. It has three pedals and looks like a proper piano, if you know what we mean.
The keys have an ivory feel and scaled hammer action so that it feels like playing an acoustic piano. It has a built-in metronome and a transposing feature and you can split the keyboard in half so that a teacher can demonstrate music in the right octave. You can also layer two sounds, for example, piano and strings.

|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|If you are one of those people who view a digital piano as the second best option and would rather have an acoustic piano if you were able to, then you will like this piano. It’s nice to play and doesn’t have a lot of extra features that you’ll never use. It’s light-weight and slim and easy to move around as you please.||This is about as close as you can come to an acoustic piano. It gives you that real piano feeling and both the sounds and the feel are very nice. It has a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty, which is nice and it’s available in three different colors.|
