In 1980, Casio released the Casiotone (CT-201) electronic keyboard, designed to provide consumers of all ages with a simple and fun way to learn and play music without any special training or rigorous practice. At the 2019 Summer NAMM Show almost 40 years later, Casio has unveiled its revamped Casiotone series – including the CT-S200, CT-S300 and LK-S250.

Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instrument Division, told us, “We are excited to introduce the newest evolution of the Casiotone series to a new generation of music lovers. After almost four decades of successfully delivering musical products made with cutting-edge technology and musical artistry that create authentic piano sound quality, we couldn’t be happier to continue to bring music into the lives of enthusiasts of all ages."

Here’s more in Casio’s own words…

Revamped to hit a high note with music lovers of all ages, the new Casiotone series of keyboards consists of three models including the CT-S200 (black, red and white), CT-S300 (midnight blue) and LK-S250 (black). Weighing in at just six pounds, the new models offer a refreshed design including a slim chassis and 61 keys, ideal for playing at home or on the go. Each keyboard is jam-packed with 400 tones, 77 rhythms, 50 patterns for Dance Music Mode, USB Midi, a rechargeable battery, adaptor and more! Additionally, all three models are compatible with the Chordana Play app, while the LK-S250 also boasts Casio’s Step-Up lesson system.

Pricing and Availability:
The Casiotone CT-S200 (MSRP: $109), CT-S300 (MSRP: $139), and LK-S250(MSRP: $159) will be available at select music dealers nationwide later this year.
