HT-700 rock on!AdamAnt316 wrote:+1. Oh, so much +1. I've been accumulating Casios for the past decade-plus. My first keyboard instrument ever was a PT-12, which was basically a PT-1 in a different box, which was basically a VL-1 in a different box. I got it when I was a kid, and I was never a huge fan of it since it seemed extremely limited (monophonic, only four cheesy presets, and several cheesy rhythms which were hard to trigger). I goofed with it for a number of years, and then put it away.Walter Ego wrote:All things Casio.
I have three CZ-101s, now, so I just need one more. I have a CZ-5000 and an RZ-1. I even have the TB-1 MIDI thru box. There's just something about that drab color scheme and framed rectangular LCD screen that has become a part of me.
And then there's the toys...MT-68, CT-410V, SK-1, SK-5 and VL-1(X2) and a Rapman. I even got a Casio mini-tv just for looks.
So...yeah, I have a soft spot, you might say.
Several years later, I found an SK-8 at a flea market for $5, and not only did it have sampling capabilities, It had five-note polyphony! Soon after, I acquired an SK-5 from another flea market, and it's been downhill from there. The nice(?) thing about Casio keyboards is that they're still fairly easy to find at yard sales, flea markets, and whatnot; many of them are newer models which I don't find too interesting, but there are still a few pseudo-diamonds in the rough, often for fairly cheap money. Here is a listing of the models I've acquired as of this writing:
