Casio CTK-2100 Learn to Play Keyboard

If you are looking for a popular 61 key portable keyboard then the Casio CTK-2100 has got plenty of positive reviews from customers with an average star rating of 4.

Amazon sell it as a package deal which includes quality closed cup headphones, an X-frame stand and a power supply. However it is best to purchase the items separately -find out why below underneath the Negatives heading).

What I like about this keyboard is that it gives the look and feel of an acoustic piano which is unusual for smaller keyboards. Also it is great for those learning the piano as it has a cool lessons feature.

Main Product Features

  • 61 keys in the same design as an acoustic piano making it look and feel more professional
  • 48 tone polyphony enables you to play a full sound without missing some of the notes
  • the sounds are not digital but use an AHL sound source software which stands for Acoustic Highly-compressed Large waveform – and therefore the sound quality is pretty good
  • Effects include reverb, auto accompaniment, layering,sampling and more
  • 150 rhythms and 400 tones
  • Built in metronome
  • It is easily connected to a computer via USB and also has a MIDI interface to download songs
  • lesson function where you can learn songs – while you learn if you seem to be finding it difficult there is a feature that will help you by saying what fingers you should be using. At the end of the lesson you get a score too!
  • the audio-in jack allows you to connect up to another device such as a radio and then you can play along with whatever song is playing

casio CTK-2100Now we will look at what customers are reporting back after their purchase of this Casio CTK 2100.

Positives

  • the learning program is really easy to use and really does help you to learn the keyboard – also teaches you how to read music
  • ideal for beginners and children
  • the keys are full size
  • lots of great sounds

Negatives

  • the power adapter supplied with the package deal at Amazon is a general one rather than a Casio brand and has caused quite a few problems with being faulty. Therefore people recommend buying the keyboard on its own and buying the power supply separately (this makes it approximately $10 more expensive which isn’t too bad)
  • the keys are not touch sensitive

I would definitely recommend the Casio CTK-2100 keyboard for anyone just starting out and wanting to learn to play really quickly. he learning program is very effective and ideal for children as being able to play a simple tune quickly keeps them motivated to learn more.
