The Casio WK-200 personal keyboard is packed with lots of great features which we will cover below, and is an affordable option for anyone looking for a feature rich keyboard but in the budget price range. The wk 200 keyboard comes with 76-standard size keys that have two sensitivity levels, giving you a more piano like experience when playing.
For anyone who wants to get experimental and creative with different sounds the Casio WK 200 keyboard comes with 570 built in tones (for example tones such a strings, woodwinds and many many more). You can also layer two different tones together for great effects or split the keyboard down the middle for an ensemble approach. Along with this you can add depth and shimmer to your performance using the selection of 10 different reverb and 5 different chorus effects.

The Casio WK-200 will help you master these songs with the in-built ‘Step Up Lessons’ feature. This feature will help you learn the songs by breaking them down into shorter parts (phrases), so when you master the phrases you master the song.
The USB port on the back of the keyboard allows you to connect to any computer and exchange MIDI data. In this day and age, many musicians use a computer as their music making centers. So the Casio WK 200 will allow you to send data from your keyboard to your computer (using some kind of music software), or send MIDI data from your computer to the keyboard allowing you to playback the sounds.

Our Casio WK 200 Review Summary
The Casio WK 200 keyboard is ideal for home personal use, but it is also suitable for education/classroom applications, studio use or even open-mic performances.
A few people have expressed a few minor disappointments with this keyboard; It doesn’t always come with a power supply so depending upon where you buy it you need to purchase this additionally. The Casio WK-200 doesn’t come with a standard MIDI input/output, however the USB port allows for easy exchange of MIDI data via a computer, but all in all these could be classed as minor irritations rather than real big issues with the model.
In summary, this is a fantastic keyboard that produces great sounds and at good quality too. It is a budget priced keyboard, but don’t let put you off until you have at least played and heard the Casio WK-200 for yourself. For the price, this feature rich keyboard is great value for the money.
