Hello Again All,

Very quickly jumping in and asking for things, but as my screen name suggests I AM a neophite in the relms of piano playing. And so, need quite a bit of assistance smile.

As it is right now, I don't even have a piano. I've been relegated to studying(sp?) sheet music reading and music theory without practical application. Sad eh?

But I HAVE been looking at getting a Casio WK, and was wondering if there are any of you out there that have any experience with this keyboard beings that all of the shops around where I live seem to not carry Casios.

Thanks for your time all.


Regards,
Rob Easter

The only thing with the WK's is that they do not have weighted keys. I have an older WK and it always takes me a few minutes when I switch from my acoustic to that (or the other way around) to get used to the feel again. If you are just starting out, and want to eventually move to an acoustic, you might want to look at a more piano oreinted keyboard, with weighted keys.

as menchened that model dosn't have weighted keys and so it will take a little bit to ajust to a real piano. It would be a good idea since you are a beginner to get a piano with weighted keys so that you won't have to ajust that much.

Good luck in finding a piano thumb

Thank you very much fr your input folks. The information blurb said that it had touch responsive kays (referencing 3 sterio samples per key and all of that) and in the pictures the keys look full. Does the weight of the keys really add/remove all of that much from the learning experience? (ie, finger memory of where the keys are, knowledge of chords, and learning to read music).

The trouble is, I only have the $ to spend so I'm very interested in getting the best bang for my buck. With the WK, I see the learning opportunity (obviously) but I also see the chance to mix it up a little bit later on with its mixing capabilities and general midi support.

What I made clear as mud in my first post was that I'm interested in opinions of yes, how it feels to play as opposed to acoustics, but also how it sounds! smile. The unaugmented sound of whatever piano I end up with is far more important to me than the feel of the keys. (Note: I'm not trying to soot down your(plural) input .. I am VERY appreciative of it and Thank you.)

The difference in weighted v. non-weighted keys will not affect you learning- music, notation, how to play, where the keys are, etc- unless you did get something with not full size keys, but that's not an issue with the WKs. It will (probably) affect your ability to easily adjust to the heavier keys and action of an acoustic piano at a later date. My own opinion is that it is easier to go from weighted to non-weighted keys than the other way around. It may not matter to you and in that case, yes, go for the WK. I agree it has some nice features in addition to the piano ability. The voices on mine (WK from a couple years ago) are decent, not great. If I am playing it as a piano, I usually run it thru my MicroPiano modules just to get a better sound.

i would suggest you get one with weighted keys. although you could learn notes and place your fingers on such a keyboard, but you'd miss some important development on your techniques, if eventually you want to play on a real piano some day. the proper techniques of piano playing depends on the weight of keys, that's the whole point. i know that because i did the same, playing on a keyboard without weighted keys first, until finally i got a digital piano. my real progress on piano only happened after that.
