CASIO launches new Casiotone keyboards at Summer NAMM

The new Casiotone models with practical carrying handle 

Norderstedt/ Nashville, 18 July 2019 – CASIO will be showcasing its new CT-S digital pianos to music experts at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville between 18 and 20 July. The four models – the CT-S300, CT-S200, CT-S100 and LK-S250 – come in a modern design and truly impress thanks to their magnificent sound. They all also feature a carrying handle for convenient transport. 

 

Thanks to a compact size (930 mm x 256 mm x 73 mm) with a reduced overall volume (about 30% less than current models) and optional battery operation, the new Casiotone models offer keyboard players total flexibility when making music. At a low weight of 3.3 kilogrammes (CT-S300, CT-S200 and CT-S100) or 3.4 kilogrammes (LK-S250), the keyboards are very easy to transport thanks to the practical carrying handle

The Dance Music Mode* allows Casiotone players to arrange drum, bass and synthesizer phrases and create dance music effortlessly. The twelve different Dance Music Voices* also add more creative touches and make playing even more enjoyable.  The Casiotone models CT-S300, CT-S200 and LK-S250 can also be connected to CASIO’s free Chordana Play app via a smartphone or tablet, which keyboarders can then use to practice and play their favourite music very easily. The two new oval loudspeakers (13 cm x 6 cm) create a magnificent sound which you’d never expect from a compact keyboard of this type. Another great feature in the Casiotone LK-S250, key lighting with touch response, allows keyboard players to learn their first pieces of music on their own step by step.

About Casiotone

CASIO brought the first portable digital keyboard onto the market in January 1980 thanks to its innovative digital technology. Back then, the Casiotone 201 set benchmarks for the future with its 49 notes. Its launch also marked the company's beginnings in the musical instruments sector. Almost 40 years and numerous innovations later, CASIO is again launching instruments onto the market which will further the company's mission to give many people access to music making with the new Casiotone keyboards.
