What do people think?

Is it worth spending 115 pounds on the proper stand and the three pedal set for a PX-330, or would you recommend a sturdier generic stand (currently using a cheap X-stand) and three pedal set.

If so do you know what three pedal sets might fit the Privia's three pedal plughole?

I think you HAVE to use the Casio stand, if you want the 3-pedal set to be properly mounted. The 3-pedal set is not designed to be placed on the floor. (I'm pretty sure of this because I contacted a shop, and they actually got a 3-pedal unit out and had a look at it for me.) It would be great if this limitation could be addressed!

Having a look at the manual, it appears that the 3-pedal unit plugs into a single connector - presumably proprietry.

I was hoping that the proprietriness was illusionary, as it would probably be cheaper for manufacturing if everyone had the same three pedal connection.

Certainly I don't think Casio's 3 pedal kit would be all that stable without the stand.

I have both of them. Stand is nice, I like it. The pedal unit however is crap. First it looks horrible and second pedals are too much heavy to push them (personal opinion). I think the pedal that comes with the keyboard is just enough as you will mostly use only one pedal most of the time.

Unfortunately, the only pedal that will work on the Privia if you want the half-pedal option is the Casio pedal. Another good option is the m-audio SP2 pedal which will work with Casio but no half-pedal option which only works with the casio pedal connected to the jack under the piano.

Ive seen a couple reports of how these pedals work. It is not complex. three pedel units tend to be just a simple network of resistors and switches and yu an figure it out with an ohm meter. But I'd only bother doing that If I wanted to make something I could not buy.

There is an industry standard for single pedals but not for three pedal units.

I thought it might be that the only choice was Casio's three pedal set up, but it was worth asking.

How well would you say the left pedal simulates una corda?

The PX330 is good value for money, but the stand and pedal unit is not. The stand is just cheap MDF (MFI type) boards, plus a metal bar for support, the pedal unit is OK'ish but I've only ever used the right pedal so far and half pedalling is way beyond my current skill.

I do have the stand and pedal but it was included in the deal I got.

Due to the hiatus I've had I've ended up with two of the cheap pedals that come with it, so I've just played for a bit with both plugged in.

From the sound of it, it just quietens things down a little - like an upright's piano pedal. I suppose a proper implementation of a grand's piano pedal would require a whole separate set of sampling, just out of interest are there any that actually do this?

I did wonder if Casio's stand was just a bit of MDF, and if so that does make it expensive (but then all the other manufacturers seem to be much the same in this regard).

In which case, has anyone tried Stagg's table style stand MXSA1? I know the Privia is about as light as they come but I can't find anything about the maximum weight for this stand (I'm sure it would be fine with the Privia, its just handy to know for future reference). Alternatively there's a Tiger KYS21-BK but I can only find that from one retailer.

Re: soft pedal samples, I'm not sure about digital pianos, but I'm pretty sure the Pianoteq software simulates it, and the East West Quantum Leap Pianos definitely has separate soft samples. (these samples are very nice indeed) These are the ones I am aware of, anyway.

The Privia stand is indeed made of MDF, but it is well designed and far more stable than a generic X-stand. I have a dark coloured one and it actually looks very smart. I can't comment on the 3 pedal option as I only have the single casio pedal.
