What we think of the Casio WK-7600 portable keyboard:
This model has the same high specification as the CTK-7200 portable keyboard, but has 76 keys which immediately makes it more piano like. It is touch sensitive and has really good quality sampling throughout. The additional functionality such as an onboard audio recorder and organ drawbars makes it a great choice for the gigging musician or for the studio.
This model is always on display in our Haslemere showroom and it is certainly worth making the time to try out some of the extended functionality.
