By 1980, after making the Casiotron wristwatch and the first card-sized calculator, Casio moved into music, releasing the Casiotone 201, a small, portable and fun electronic keyboard with synthesized piano, organ and guitar sounds that was easy to play and learn. Since that time, Casio has gone from making musical toys to becoming a major force in serious musical instruments, always keeping a certain amount of fun in their keyboards.
The Test of Time: Sam Ash & Casio
Throughout that journey, Sam Ash Music has been there, longer than any other music retailer, introducing revolutionary products like the CZ-101 Synthesizerin 1984 and the PG-380 guitar with built-in synth in 1988.
