The Casio CTK-1100 Portable Keyboard is a lightweight instrument that boasts an impressive 61 full-size keys that are just waiting to be explored. Playing host to a range of high quality, authentic voices and rhythms, the CTK-1100 is perfect for newcomers to the keyboard, as well as those with a little more experience who are looking for a comfortable and versatile instrument to practise and perform on.
The Casio CTK-1100 is equipped with a pair of built-in 2-watt + 2-watt speakers, which produce a clear and warm tone that immerses you in music. You can perform for others, or simply belt out some tunes to yourself. However, for times when discretion or silent practise is required, the built in headphones output has you covered. When you're at home or in school, you can use an optional 9.5VDC power supply (sold separately) to power your performance. However, should you wish to take your talents on the road, the CTK-1100 can be powered using 6 AA batteries.
Casio's advanced learning system
Casio have also incorporated an advanced learning system allowing the isolation of left or right hand parts at the touch of a button. The clear LCD display provides information about selected voices and styles, but also facilitates the tweaking of sounds and accessing other settings, such as Transpose. The sound bank controls are similar to a CD player to make playing along to the 100 built-in songs as simple as possible.
The Casio CTK-1100 is an ideal keyboard for those wanting to learn piano or keyboard but who are also seeking a fun and enjoyable experience.

- CTK 1100 - good fast learning beginners
Both left and right-hand practise against stored songs is so useful for those that have persevered for 6 months to get their key-awareness levels up.
There's the usual collection of stored songs, tempo and monitoring information well displayed to assist you in your practise.
It offers the keen beginner many options for getting into the musical world.
This comes with a well-designed learning system. I've practised on this, alongside a CTK-300 model and preferred this model.
The usual Casio faux pas of "no included power supply" is true of this model, sadly...
