anyone else a fan of the casio mt-11 toy keyboard?

I was looking for something portable to practice theory and i found this thing, i thought it sounds pretty great, nice feature is that the headphone output is 1/4" not 1/8" so its easy to run into guitar pedals,

i could not find any mods online, does anyone by chance know any nice circuit bends that are possible on this thing?

Yeah they're awesome, great Casio square wave clarinet and a piano that sounds anything but like a piano 8-)

...and polyphonic too which is nice, don't mod it tho they're great as they are :geek:

yeah i was worried i might ruin the whole thing. but some pitch bending or distortion would be nice, i was thinking maybe its possible to expand the tune trimpot to a wider range.

I have a stack of Casios but not this one. Time to hit the thrift stores and flea markets again...

I agree, don't mod it. I used to run mine into a rack with half a dozen effects and it's high harmonic content made for some awesome moments. Need to pick up another...
