PLAY AS YOU PAY
The Casio LK-280 keyboard may weigh just under 10 pounds, but it packs a metric ton of value for beginning pianists. The "LK" in LK-280 stands for "Lighted Keys." That's right, this keyboard will light up and flash each key to show you where to play next. Follow the lights and turn on the gentle simulated voice that calls out finger numbers...3 2 1 2 3 3 3...2 2 2...3 5 5! And you're off to the races on the lighted, touch-responsive keyboard, while the LCD displays musical notation and correct hand positioning.

Learn At Your Own Pace

The Casio LK-280 61-key lighted USB keyboard includes Step Lessons -- songs broken down so you can learn them phrase by phrase, at your own pace, while the keyboard saves your progress and scores your performance. As each phrase is mastered, you'll learn to play any of the 152 built-in songs. There's a 5-song, 6-track recorder on-board for your own compositions, and with 600 built-in tones (including stereo grand piano), you've got a whole band at your fingertips. Use the built-in metronome to learn to play in tempo, and choose one of 180 built-in rhythm patterns to learn to play with "feel." There's a port on the back to plug in a microphone, so you can sing along with your own accompaniment. You can even plug your MP3 player to the standard 1/8-inch audio input, and listen to your tunes out loud on the dual 2.5-watt stereo speakers.

Add Your Own MIDI Files

Plug the LK-280 into your computer via its USB port to use it with any MIDI-compatible music education or composition software. Load MIDI files onto an SD card and pop it in the LK-280's SD card slot to listen to any song you can find in MIDI format. Hundreds of MIDI songs will fit on a 16 MB card. Give the small-capacity SD card that came with your digital camera a new life! Slow down the tempo of songs and play along -- as the keys light up magically. And of course, you can easily turn off the flashing keys anytime.

You've Got the Power

The Casio LK-280 comes with an included power supply, but it can also run on six size-D batteries. With a light-up keyboard in such a lightweight package, students just might not want to stop when the lesson is over. It's just too much fun to play a keyboard that glows in the dark!

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent!!"
Sound: Great sound. Good volume controls. Touch sensitive keys work great. Works great in different settings. Different sounds (drums, flute, organ, ect) work great. Sounds good. Light up keys work perfectly. And def help. Ease of Use: So far the keyboard is easy to use. Def have to read instructions. Bunch of buttons and different features. Pretty easy once you know what your doing. Haven't hooked up MIDI cable yet. So I'm not sure how easy it is to download more songs. Quality: Seems pretty sturdy. Seems like it will last a long time. Doesn't feel flimsy and cheap. Overall: Everything about this transaction was terrific! I brought a blemished keyboard. Can't even tell where a blemish is. Works perfectly! Worth the price. Great product. Fast shipping. Would gladly do it again. Thanx zzsounds!! :)

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
