Casiotone Special

Leaving behind preconceived ideas about how musical instruments must be played from a fixed location, the next generation of Casiotone instruments offer a new style of keyboard that can be freely carried anywhere, designed for making music, anytime, anywhere.

Make Music, Anytime, Anywhere.

Our goal has been to bring the enjoyment of music and of performing to more people. It was in January 1980 that we first delivered on this goal by offering our first electronic keyboard — the Casiotone CT-201 — to the world. To address this, Casio co-founder and inventor Toshio Kashio, who was a music lover, thought it would be wonderful to reproduce the sounds of instruments that are typically difficult to play, just using his own hands on a keyboard. This led him to develop a system of vowel-consonant synthesis. By modifying and combining the “vowel” and “consonant” elements that sound is composed of to create a single sound, he succeeded in recreating the sounds of 29 different instruments, making them playable on a piano style keyboard. The Casiotone CT-201 came into being as an unprecedented new form of musical instrument.

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND DESIGN

An extremely slim & compact design
By pursuing smaller speakers and adjustments to the layout of the circuit boards and switches, the new Casiotone models have been made even more compact.

Body design that minimizes impact shock
By rounding the corners and centering the locations where the top and bottom of the case come together, we have designed a chassis that minimizes the effects of the kinds of impacts that are commonly received when transporting a portable instrument.


A grip that makes the keyboard easy to carry with you
The grip is the result of repeated examination and analysis to ensure that it is both easy to grasp and highly durable.

Special attention to sound
The Volume Sync Equalizer correction function allows players to clearly express the characteristics of even soft sounds, imparting quality in both portability and the keyboard as a musical instrument.

Unique Casiotone features
