That's why the "LK" in the name of Casio's LK-165 portable keyboard stands for "Lighted Keys." Choose one of the 110 built-in songs, and watch as the first note of the song glows and flashes on the keyboard. It's impossible not to want to play this keyboard!

Step-Up Lesson System

A light-up keyboard does more than just look good -- it's the heart of Casio's exclusive step-teaching system. Turn on Step-Up Lessons, and the keyboard will step through "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" (or any of 109 more built-in tunes) as the student learns and plays at their own pace. A gentle simulated voice calls out finger numbers, and the full-size keys light up and flash red to reveal exactly where to play next, as the LCD screen displays musical notation. When it's time to impress the family with a formal recital, you can easily turn off the voice prompts or flashing keys.

Plug and Play

read more Youngsters delight in playing the LK-165. But there's plenty to love here for grown-ups, too: the built-in USB port is a MIDI interface for your computer. Simply plug-and-play with any MIDI-compatible music education or composition software, such as GarageBand on the Mac -- no drivers necessary. Choose from 400 onboard tones (including stereo grand piano), play along with any of 150 rhythm patterns, and spice up your sound with 10 types of reverb effects. Much more than just a toy for the kids, the Casio LK-165 has a full 48 notes of polyphony, the most in its class. And the LK-165 comes with an AC adapter power supply, but you can also power it with six size-D batteries for ultimate in portability.

Something for Everyone

There's a 1/4" microphone jack built right into this keyboard, so you can plug in a mic with a separate volume control and sing along with yourself -- or accompany a vocalist as they sing through the onboard twin 2-watt speaker system. There's even a sampling system, so you can record 1-second voice or percussion sounds, loop them, and jam along with yourself on the keyboard. The LK-165 also has five "voice pads" which play back sound effects or your sampled sounds. And when it's time to practice silently, plug in a pair of standard headphones. With all these features, the LK-165 is one entry-level portable keyboard that you -- and the piano student in your family -- will want to keep playing for a long, long time.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Bought at a great price, had a small scratch and that's the way the item was advertised. Grandson is nine and asked him a month ago while he was watching a teen band if he would like to be in one when he is older, that's why I got it for him.

Only listen and enjoy.
