Play music in style with Casio's CTK-2400 Keyboard

You know the shows that your kids watch, where they break out into song that oddly enough everyone knows every word and dance move to? Well, that’s my house minus the dance moves. We love music, especially myself and my 12 year old daughter. Mya has followed in my footsteps when it comes to playing musical instruments. She absolutely loves the piano. So when Casio contacted me to review one of their keyboards, there was no way I was saying no to that. I’m so happy to include this keyboard in my best of 2015 guide.

My mom has been storing my upright piano at her house. We have been meaning to get it over here, but just haven’t yet. The keyboard we have is nice but I Knew the Casio CTKS-2400 would be so much nicer and that Mya would like playing on it better. I was right about both, especially about Mya wanting to play on it. Upon taking it out of the box, she had to battle her 2 year old sister for it. For some reason Fallon thought it was “my present, for me”. Then again, everything that comes to the house now she thinks is for her.

One of the great things about this keyboard is that, it isn’t just for practice. You can actually create and record music on it. It comes with 150 rhythms that  you can use along with must haves like a built in microphone (no need to have one plugged in and hope it doesn’t get bumped (has happened to me before).

A few features:

  • Sound EFX Sampler
  • Built-In Microphone
  • Step-up learning system
  • 400 Keyboard Voices
  • 48 Note Polyphony
  • 110 Songs

I have seen so many keyboards that require the use of batteries, and to be honest, that gets expensive. I love that Casio has a AC adapter for their keyboard so I don’t have to worry about having a full set of batteries in the keyboard and on hand when those die. It makes super easy that you can take it right out of the box, plug it in and you are good to start playing.

For those who love creating your own music and putting it out there for the world to hear, you will love this. The CTK-2400 has a USB MIDI. “Casio continues the tradition or providing "class compliant" USB connectivity on Portable digital pianos. This allows Casio Portable digital pianos to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Casio digital pianos to be used as a controller with the Apple iPad simply with the use of Apple's Camera Connection Kit.”

This keyboard has everything you need to have fun playing, and do serious work making music. It’s also great that it saves space as it can be tucked away when not being used or stored on a stand. If you don’t own a stand you can buy from Casio on their site along with the keyboard, or check out their retail locations for a store near you.

  1. My son is interested in a keyboard. I would like to find one that is not too pricey but still has a lot of good features as well. I am just not sure how long he will use it before he tosses it aside. Casio is a good brand. I will have to check them out.

  2. This is very educational content and written well for a change. It's nice to see that some people still understand how to write a quality post.! White Noise for Sleeping
