Casio LK-175 – Key-Lighting Keyboard With EFX Sound Sampler
The LK-175 from Casio is a portable keyboard with 61 full-size keys, onboard stereo speakers, and more. Lighted keys and the company’s Step Up Lesson System provide instruction and assistance allowing you to gain experience and eventually play on your own. It features 400 tones and a fully featured auto accompaniment section includes 150 rhythm patterns and 150 One Touch presets.
You can sample sounds either from the built-in microphone or via an optional external microphone and trigger the samples. For beginning keyboardists, the LK-175 offers extensive learning features. Its Step Up learning system includes a Voice Fingering Guide, a Note Guide, and Performance Evaluation along with lighted keys. It teaches songs phrase by phrase, and keeps track of your progress.
Over one-hundred built-in songs provide additional practice material, and you can turn off one of the “hands” as the song plays, so you can play its part. The keyboard comes with a detachable music stand and is powered by an AC adapter. Alternatively it can run on six AA alkaline batteries (not included) which typically provide about three hours of continuous operation.
