Casio WK-3800 Keyboard Customer Review
Overall: 5 out of 5 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 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.

"Oh my God!!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
This economy-priced keyboard is NOT like others in it's price range. The sounds are highly competitive with those of the higher priced boards! Having had one for years, I have been approached with comments that people thought the music playing was a CD! With the ability to layer and split sounds, creating a new sound is incredibly easy. The organ sounds JUST LIKE a Hammond B3. Even the leslie is perfectly emulated. If you're playing through a house system, you better watch out! The true power of this instrument comes through. OH MY GOD!! I am particular when it comes to sound quality. The pianos, strings ( my favorite) , brass...impeccable! I especially love the trumpet/brass patch. You'd swear the LA Brass ensemble was in the house! This has a great number of other great features as well. If I detailed them all, I'd be writing a novel! Get this keyboard and you WON'T regret it!

"Really Nice For The Price!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
This is an inexpensive arranger workstation, great for quickly capturing what you have in your head into a rough sketch with accompaniment and if you need to save it (either on the unit itself or into a DAW), it's done.
Sound
For its price, it's an exceptional product. A consumer model that has realistic sounds and good internal speakers. Only downside, and it isn't a major one, is that the output on the stereo 1/4" outputs on the back is fairly low and you have to jack up the sound via the mixer if you're trying to crank it out.
Features
It covers almost every base except that it has a limited midi-controller features. Otherwise, it's great.
Ease of Use
Doesn't come any easier than this...set up...go, or change on the fly and go...love the lack of serious weight.
Quality
I've had it on the road for quite some time in a soft case and it travels well. Keep in mind that it is made with plastic and can be damaged, but being light, portable and it works on batteries...great if you're playing on the streets away from a power source.
Value
Best Bang for the Buck!
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to get help.
The Wow Factor
Sex appeal...can't answer that, but the finish looks good...but for certain setups, hard to beat.
