History of Casio
A parts processor from an early age, Tadao Kashio set up his own business in Tokyo in 1946: Kashio Seisakujo (Kasho Factory in English).
Then after creating the the world’s first compact all-electric calculator, the 14-A, Tadao and his brothers created Casio Computers Ltd in 1957, Tadao becoming the president three years later.
This was the first watch released by Casio, and it was the first to have a calendar that accounted for each month having different days — and even leap years!
Casio then continued making many more multi-functional digital watches, integrating much of the tech they developed making calculators.
Toshio Kashio developed a sound engine that recreated 29 sounds such as piano, organ, harp and trumpet.
When Casio put it inside their Casiotone 201, it became the first time anyone could recreate the sounds of other instruments with a keyboard.
This was also the beginning for making musical instruments at Casio.
Throughout the late 20th century, Casio kept on inventing new technologies for keyboards such as easy sampling and light-up keys.
They had also released their Celviano series: the high-end of their keyboards and a few bulky digital pianos.
Launching the new Privia “Private Piano” series, Casio’s PX-100 aimed at replicating an acoustic piano inside a compact and affordable digital for the first time.
As far as keyboards and digital pianos go, few brands today are as well-known as Casio.
They’ve continued to try to make it easy for anyone to enjoy making music.
They’ve also continued to push the boundary for what a digital piano can be, as seen in their latest Privia digitals which boast the slimmest and most-modern designs in the industry.
