Casio WK-3800 Keyboard Customer Review
Overall: 10 out of 10 stars
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
I will buy the Casio wk-8000. That is how much I like the WK series. I will never part with this keyboard. It is a classic.

Sound
I have to say it one more time: exceptional. Unfortunately most musicians are misled by brand names. I have several Korg and Roland professional keyboards, and let me tell you that this Casio wk-3800 challenges the sound of most of them, I mean pure sound. For example, the piano sounds on this Casio rival Korg's Triton. Go into the effects section and tweak and you will see what I mean. There are keyboards that cost $ 1000 or more and cannot produce better sounds that this marvelous Casio wk-3800. I am not talking about analog or weird sounds. I refer to stock sounds: sax, electric pianos, trumpets, etc. It is a very special keyboard and what else can you ask for $ 350 average? You want egg in your beer too? Anybody who has doubts feel free to email me at brownysweet@hotmail.com I will be happy to talk about this marvel.

Features
Enough features for this price. The organ sounds are fantastic with the drawbars. You get key click, harmonics, etc. The leslie is really good. I wanted to buy the Nord Electro, but changed my mind and got this beauty. I saved up money and bought an Alesis Micron (exceptional too) and more Roland expansion cards for my beloved Roland Juno-G (great keyboard).

Ease of Use
So intuitive. Why can't other manufacturers try read more to copy the layout of this keyboard and offer us a Korg or Roland with exceptional features at the same price? You know, the Casio guys deserve an award for this keyboard. At last a great keyboard for everybody without breaking the bank.

Quality
I take care of mine. I bought a hard case for it. The reason: you take care of the instruments you love! Great quality for the price.

Value
The King of all keyboards at this price and more. It rivals keyboards that cost over $ 1000. If anybody disagrees just email me and we will talk. You will be convinced on one condition: get the keyboard, take it home, play it for at least 2 weeks, tweak it and you will be hooked!

Manufacturer Support
They know their products and will answer your questions promptly and efficiently.

The Wow Factor
Beautiful, sexy, excellent,a great buy.

Musical Background:
Active musician

Musical Style:
