            Great little keyboard. 76 keys, tons of sounds and 150 rhythms. Also comes with a power supply which is a plus! Midi capable which adds to its flexibility. I have one of these that I use as a basic drum machine/ midi controller when working in a small studio. Does the trick!

                  Lets face it. Casio has been around forever and they aren't going anywhere. As long as they keep making amazing entry level keyboards like this that is. This thing is perfect for kids starting out or anyone looking to learn how to play and all that without breaking the bank. Definitely recommend

                    Casio has done it again with the release of the WK425. With their new sound engine Casio has never been better, even the upgraded speaker system has helped in achieving their new sound. Come into Sam Ash King of Prussia to try it out!

                      A Workstation under $200? Are you kidding me? This is great! This allows you to get your feet wet in the world of music production and creation on a workstation board without having to drop $3500 on a Motif!

                      Comes with the power supply too!
