Casio Day! Ultra rare beautiful pink Casio SK-1!

Here’s something you don’t see every day. Apparently when Casio made the famous SK1, they briefly manufactured one in light pink with light blue keys. Here’s some incredible photos of one from our pals over at Matrixsynth!

Casio SK-2100 Sampling Keyboard | 1987 incredibly rare | demo video

I consider myself a Casio keyboard aficionado, but I must say I somehow never knew about this one before I saw this video. Imagine the famed Casio SK-1 on steroids combined with the rhythm sequencer of the HT-700 and you’ll get an idea of what this synth is.

Released in 1987, a year after the SK-1, the SK-2100 has full sized keys, stereo speakers and 4 sample slots that will even save when the unit is powered off (as long as batteries are installed or it’s plugged in). The same is true of my HT-700, which is also why I know the rhythm section is the same as the HT. I have one and in fact was just playing with it right before seeing this vid, the sounds are identical.

This is definitely a cool and odd piece of history. Casio always made such fun stuff in the 80s.
