Giving Beginners the Best Start.

Featuring Casio's acclaimed Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard, the CDP-S160 gives students of all ages the most authentic touch and sound of any starter digital piano.  

From the very first lesson through to advanced performances, this compact and easy-to-use piano will support them for years to come.

All the features you need. And more. 

Choosing a digital piano for beginners can be confusing.

Rest assured that the CDP-S160 has all the essentials covered and much more besides.

It has 88 touch-sensitive, weighted keys with a graded action. An elegant and sturdy wooden stand ensures that the keys are at the correct height.

Three fixed footpedals have the same functionality as a traditional grand piano: damper sustain (with half pedalling), sostenuto and una corda. 

Put simply, this digital piano has everything students need to develop the correct playing technique from the start.

This is the piano you're looking for.

For students of all ages.

The Casio CDP-S160 is the best digital piano for beginners of all ages.

Offering exceptional value for money and an excellent quality sound and touch, it is ideal for home study and for use in teaching studios and classrooms.

An Authentic Touch.

Over 80% of music teachers we surveyed* said that the most important thing about a digital piano was the quality of its touch.

It's important that a beginner's piano offers the same key feel as a traditional piano, otherwise students may find it off-putting when they play on an acoustic piano in exams or in concerts.

At Casio, we have over 42 years of expertise in designing excellent quality keyboards. The CDP-S160 has our latest Scaled Hammer Action II key mechanism inside, making it the class-leader in premium beginner instruments. 

What is a Scaled Hammer Action?

On a traditional piano, the lower keys feel slightly heavier to press compared with the higher notes. In fact, the keys get gradually lighter as you go higher up. Being aware of this difference in key feel is an important skill of any pianist, and it's why every good beginners instrumnent should have a Scaled Hammer Action, just like the CDP-S160 does.

Helpful Practice Functions.

There are some great features on the CDP-S160 that can help students practise more effectively and keep them motivated.

Song Recorder

The song recorder develops invaluable listening skills, allowing students to review their performance and spot areas that might need further study. No distracting screens are required, simply press the Record button and play. When finished, listen to your performance whilst thinking about the note accuracy, pulse and rhythm, fingering, dynamics and other musical elements.


A handy tool for exploring the tempo of your chosen piece, helping to develop and understanding of character, mood and style. Easily set with the Function button on the CDP-S160.

Integrated Stand Encourages Good Posture.

Usually, entry level digital pianos are sold without a stand, which can be a bit of a hassle.

With the CDP-S160, the stylish wooden stand comes as standard, supporting the keyboard section securely.

Why is a good quality piano stand important?

Having the keyboard sit on a specially-designed stand means that the keys will be at the same height as a traditional piano. This is essential for good posture and the development of proper fingering technique.

Three Fixed Pedals.

The control of the damper pedal is an essential skill that all pianists need to master. 

The CDP-S160 has three fixed pedals that offer the same capabilities as a traditional grand piano, namely damper (with half-pedalling functionality), sostenuto and una corda.

Having three fixed pedals is great, because it means that students won't outgrow the CDP-S160. With three fixed pedals, repetoire of the middle and higher grades of piano become accessible. You'll be surprised at what can be achieved on a Casio CDP-S series piano! 

In case you do want to try a Rachmaninov piano concerto or a Chopin Etude, rest assured that the sturdy stand and fixed pedals will be secure and stable throughout your performance.

Lightweight and Portable.

Need a portable piano for a rehearsal or performance? This piano can do that, too. 

Weighing just 10.5kg, the  CDP-S160 can be easily removed from its stand and placed in the optional SC-800P soft case. What's more, it can even be powered by 6 AA batteries (sold separately), so you can literally play the piano anywhere you choose. 

The optional SP-34 portable pedal unit gives the same functoinality as the fixed pedals, and the CDP-S160 will sit securely on any regular double-braced X-frame stand, giving you a great combination of portability and excellent functionality. 

Well Connected.

An ideal beginner's piano should connect easily to computers, tablets and smartphones, ready to explore the wide range of music learning apps available.

The CDP-S160 has a USB connection which is class-compliant. This means that it doesn't need any additional software or setting-up procedures to work with music composition and recording apps. It is simply plug and play (a standard USB cable and adapter cable will be required, purchased separately).

This simplicity of use, combined with the high quality weighted key action makes the CDP-S160 ideal as an 88 key MIDI controller.

Choose a Trusted Global Brand.

When investing in a digital piano, it's worth considering the level of support that the manufacturer provides.

Casio produced the world's first electronic keyboard in 1980. Since then, we've been proud to produce pioneering digital instruments that set the standard that others follow. 

The CDP-S160 comes with a 2 Year UK Warranty. This means that, in the highly unlikely event that your Casio piano requires the attention of a service engineer, we have a highly skilled UK-based team ready to help. 

We offer lifetime technical support to all customers, and are pleased to receive calls from customers that are enjoying vintage products from over 20+ years ago. This is a true testament to the longevity and reliablity of our products, and keeping with our company mission of bringing the joy of owning a high-quality instrument to the whole world.
