Casio CTK-3400SK Keyboard
Designed specifically for schools and education, Casio are bringing you the new CTK-3400SK Keyboard. It is crafted with students and teachers in mind, eliminating distracting and unnecessary features of other standard keyboards. This leaves you with all the necessary components wrapped up in a colour coded, simple and accessible layout. I have had a chance to try out this great little keyboard and will be describing it in more detail.
One of the most important features when learning to play is touch sensitivity of a keyboard. The new Casio CTK-3400 provides you with a great response to best reflect whatever piece of music you are playing. I was also pleasantly surprised with the natural and pure piano sound of this instrument, which I am usually particularly picky about. Maximum polyphony of 48 eliminates the possibility of muted notes.
