Built on the success of the outgoing CTK-3400 the new CTK-3500 model has an improved sound quality, keyboard feel and the addition of DJ functionality for the first time on the CTK-3**** series model. You can also connect the keyboard to an iOS or Android device to use Casio's new Chordana app, an intuitive lesson system to help you learn to play a selection of 50 songs, in addition to the 3 step lesson system already built into the keyboard! Ideal for the beginner musician it is also an ideal classroom keyboard with USB connectivity for use as a controller keyboard. A great value and also quite compact keyboard that is sure to be really popular and a perfect starter instrument!
