Product Description

Amazon.com

Take your talents to another level or embark upon a lifetime of music making with Casio's LK-43 keyboard. Its 61 full-size keys cover five octaves and light when touched, making them especially fun for either learning or playing. The keyboard's Song Bank offers 100 inspiring tunes to help you along: turn the melodies on or off and cut parts to suit your interests and ability.

Instructional features include a three-step teaching system. Use any key to advance a melody. Then try playing along on the keys--the accompaniment will wait for you. Last, you can play the melody in time along with rhythmic accompaniment.

Enjoy up to 12-note polyphony (simultaneous sounding tones) for complicated chords and fingerings. You can choose from 100 different PCM (pulse-code-modulated) keyboard tones and 50 rhythm patterns with the Casio/fingered chord auto-accompaniment system. The Song Bank Controller consists of CD player-like controls--play/pause, stop, rewind, fast forward--to give you instant familiarity with it.

The keyboard's built-in 76 x 42 mm LCD shows the current tone, rhythm, song, volume, melody off status, and tempo, as well as fingering and the built-in voice fingering guide. Separate Right and Left buttons let you practice left-hand and right-hand parts independently.

Built-in stereo speakers let you listen in style, while a headphone jack affords private practice, which may be advisable when you're just starting out! (Headphones are not included.) When you're ready for it, you can take advantage of the keyboard's five-channel, multi-timbral MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) output and input to hook the unit up with other devices for more sophisticated performances and/or recordings.

You can run the keyboard off of an optional AC power adapter or six AA batteries (not supplied). You can also hook the unit up with a sustain pedal through a dedicated jack.

A Kid's Review on January 4, 2003
I asked santa for a electric keyboard for Christmas this year. When I saw that he left me a Casio LK-43 electric keyboard it was way more than I expected. My grandma and I have been playing it all the time together. It is easy to learn because it has voice and lighted key instructions on it and it shows which fingers go on what keys making it easy for me to learn and sound like a pro. My keyboard also has 100 songs on it that helps me learn how to play it. My grandma liked my keyboard so much that my mom returned my grandmas gift and bought her a Casio LK-43 electric keyboard just like mine. Now we both have one just alike. My Casio electric keyboard is the best present I have ever gotten from Santa, it is the BOMB of keyboards. I must have been pretty good last year huh? I can't wait to tell my music teacher when I get back in school.

It took me about a day to get used to the sound difference between this and piano. The sound was good, it was just obviously different. But now that I have gotten a little more used to the differences, I love it. It came with a stand and an adaptor and a music book to get you started with songs ranging from very easy to more difficult. There is a learning mode that includes 100 songs you can learn to play on 3 different levels. The keys light up to let you know which button to hit next. (This feature can be turned off). And there's a voice that tells you which finger to use. (This can also be turned off.) The learning feature is fun to play around with and as with all keyboards, there are many different sounds you can choose from. Also the Demo mode, plays all the 100 songs for you so you can see how fast they are and how they are supposed to sound and it's fun to sing-a-long to.

Dad got it for me around 10, i stopped playing for about 6 years now and i feel bad.
I'm mostly doing this review, i doubt anyone will read this for the upcoming rock band 3. I hope to take this out, buy an adapter for the game and rock out without using that small fake rb3 keyboard.
Love this keyboard, i never learned to appreciate the hard earned money my dad paid for it at full price years back, quick google says you can get this keyboard used for about $60, i still think thats a lot and thats about 3 times as less my dad paid.
Love my dad thank you to introducing me into music, i didn't appreciate it as a kid, i've missed my music opportunity with the keyboard but i hope to play it recreationaly along with the guitar, violin, heck maybe the flute as a successful adult!

We bought this for our granddaughter who is just starting out playing and taking lessons (age 5). It has worked flawlessly so far and she really seems to like the lighted keys.
