Casio are a company that are currently celebrating their 30th Anniversary and for me were best known for their home keyboards. In my opinion, they have always been great value for money quite often providing some very innovative ideas but keeping everything sensibly priced. For many musicians, thinking about them from a professional gigging point of view, I think it would be fair to say that they would not be a name near the top of their list when thinking about buying a synth or piano. Today however the world is a different place and if you have read some of my recent reviews you will find that especially where keybeds and keyboard action are concerned, even the companies that we love and trust do not necessarily provide us with a good keybed that is a pleasure to play but they still charge us an arm and a leg for the product. If it does have a great keyboard with touch-sensitive hammer action full size keys with after-touch then the chances are the weight of carrying around may put you off.

I know many people like me would wish it was a more of Synth and Piano but it is not. I therefore intend to concentrate this review on what it is rather than what it is not. I will be looking at the 73-note version which is a lovely rich burgundy colour with black rounded ends.
