Casio Privia PX 760 Features
The ebony and ivory feel keys also enhances the full sized weighted
PX 760 has 88 graded weighted hammer action keys which means they are a little heavier on the left and as you move upward they gradually become lighter.
This is the true resemblance of acoustic grand piano as well.

The keys are also Tri sensor keys which means they has 3 levels of sensitivity which can also be either completely turned off.
Also the keys are full sized with ebony and ivory texture. These textures makes play ability more comfortable and makes the fingers less slippery even when played for long hours.
Sound Of Casio PX 760
To change the sound all you need to do is hold the function button on the front panel of the keyboard and strike the required note.
The sound are simulated via the Casio patented AiR technology which makes the sound crisp and immersive.
Overall the sound is quite nice even on full volume and their is no room for improvement when sound is considered.
The Duet Mode
760 also features a duet mode which splits the piano in half.
Splitting the piano will change the total number of notes from 188 to 244 essentially giving you two middle C’s .
One of the feature that I really liked is the 2 headphone jack connectivity option.
This comes handy when you are not going to practice out loud but want some private practice.
So you and your partner can connect their individual headphones and start practicing together.
The speakers will turn off automatically as soon as any of the jack gets engaged.
Another common yet important feature PX 760 provides is the layering option.
Layering allows you to layer two sounds over one another on each keys.
A very common combination is like a piano sound and the string sound.
So after layering both sounds every time you touch a note you will hear both of those instruments sounds simultaneously.
To layer two sound you need to hold the function button and then strike the first note and then the next note and it’s done.

You can also adjust the balance of the two tones by holding the function and then striking the C.
The more you strike the C (the function button needs to be hold) the second sound will gets heavier.
Striking the B will result in vice versa.
This is the function of layer and it opens a whole new world of creativity.

The concert play function
A distinctive feature that PX 760 offers is the concert play function.
This function allows you to play along with the high quality audio recording of 10 live symphony orchestra performances.
To use the feature simply press the function button and choose the song you want to play.
PX 760 consists three pedals just like you would find on a real acoustic grand piano.
The 3 pedals are the soft, sostenuto and the sustain pedal.
It also features a built-in metronome, a song recorder and a transpose feature.
The piano is also equipped with the proper port to connect to your home computer.
You might want to use software whether it’s educational software, notation, or recording software.
One of the pain point for any type piano are the dust they accumulate shortly.
And I am personally not a big fan of plastic keyboard covers.

But PX 760 comes with hard sliding key cover to protect your keys. (the key cover is assembled in the stand which comes with selected bundle.
The bundle offers matching furniture stand, 3 pedal boards and music rest.)
My Experience with Casio PX 760
Overall I can say that Casio Privia PX 760 is a good home piano for intermediate level pianist with a genuine price tag.
The tri sensor scaled hammer action keys are quite admirable. It really leaves a wonderful feel and increase the overall authenticity.
The multi directional sound is also loud and clear. No doubt the AiR sound engine also increase the overall quality a lot.
