Here's What Casio Say:
Simply the Best Keyboard for Beginners.
A musical instrument should be intuitive and inspire you to want to play, wherever you may be. This design philosophy is at the heart of the CT-S1 and it’s what sets it apart from other keyboards. With 61 full-size, touch sensitive textured keys, you’ll be enjoying your style of music anytime, anywhere.
Compact Size, Incredible Sound
Using Casio’s advanced AiX sound technology, the CT-S1 boasts an expressive grand piano tone that sounds like an instrument twice its size (not to mention twice the price). Newly developed Bass Reflex speakers and Surround Sound mode mean a richer, more dynamic tone that complements the excellent sound quality. The CT-S1 is an entry level keyboard that you’ll enjoy playing and listening to over and over again.
Hassle Free Connections - Every Time
Learning online at home is very popular and the CT-S1 has been designed with this in mind. Connect your phone, tablet or computer directly with USB and enjoy music learning apps and games.
Learn with Chordana Play
Compatible with Android and iOS devices, Chordana Play connects via USB or optional Bluetooth dongle and teaches you to play in a fun, visual way. Select from a library of over 50 traditional songs or import any MIDI file you choose. Follow the music score or piano roll notation at your own pace, with the app guiding you through each step.
Interactive Online Learning Included
The CT-S1 comes with a range of features to help you get the best from learning the keyboard at home. Your purchase includes FREE unlimited access to the Casio Music Academy. Designed by music teachers, this online portal combines video tutorials with an app that connects to your keyboard via USB (cable required) or Bluetooth dongle (optional purchase), analyses your playing and shows you how to improve, step-by-step.
Stylish and Easy to Use Anywhere
Available in three colours, the compact CT-S1 fits into any space. The intuitive controls allow quick access to any of the 61 tones and you can capture your inspiration quickly with the built-in Song Recorder. Weighing just 4.5kg, the CT-S1 can be powered from 6 AA batteries, which is perfect for making music on the move.
Get Creative with Vintage Tones.
If you love creating music with vintage Electric Pianos, Synths and iconic sounds from pop music history, there’s lots to like in the CT-S1. New Advanced Tones use studio-grade digital effects to add amp simulation, phaser and more without the need for editing or time-consuming programming. Just select and play!
Go Wireless with Bluetooth
For the first time in an entry-level keyboard, the optional WU-BT10 Bluetooth dongle allows you to add Bluetooth Audio and Bluetooth MIDI capabilities to your CT-S1. This means you can stream music through the keyboard’s speakers and play along to your favourite tracks, or use the CT-S1 as a wireless MIDI controller with your music apps (purchased separately).
