Casio LK230 61 Key Personal Keyboard; The epitome of music education and entertainment!
The LK230 features one of the most helpful learning systems in Casio's own Step-Up music education system. Casio makes it easy to learn by breaking lessons down into small learning units that are then learned step by step; it also inspires musical creativity: The Voice Pad function makes it really simple to play back voice samples and other sounds and effects using the pads. And that's not all; the LK230 has plenty more to offer, including the AHL sound source boasting 48 notes, 150 rhythms, an extended automatic accompaniment feature with ON-bass chord and a large, easy-to-read display.
