Casio CDP-S350 Keyboard Review - Best Weighted Keyboard under $600? - Packed with Sounds & Features

The Casio CDP-S350 is an 88-key weighted keyboard with a ton of easy to use features. Including over 700 sounds and 200 rhythm tracks packed into this capable instrument, it will satisfy those looking for more features than other competing manufacturers at this price point. The CDPS-350 is more than 40% smaller than other brands and delivers piano authenticity in a slim unibody case that's barely larger than the keys themselves. Weighing only 24lbs and capable of running on AA batteries, the CDP-S350 provides unprecedented levels of portability and convenience.

It wasn’t very long ago that learning the piano meant investing quite a lot of money on an acoustic piano, but thankfully, affordable digital pianos have been improving in quality over the past decade and there are now plenty of options for finding a quality budget conscious option.

Casio is one of the big names in the digital piano space, and we previously covered their new slim form factor digital pianos, the  PX-S1000 and the PX-S3000. We liked these models and considered them worthy additions to the prestigious Privia line.

Much like the PX-S3000, the  CDP-S350 takes its less fully-featured counterpart, the CDP-S100, and adds on some extra bells and whistles to make it a more complete package.

The CDP-S350 has earned a title as a digital piano/arranger keyboard hybrid because it includes a large selection of sounds alongside a wide selection of rhythms and accompaniment features.
