Phenomenal

By The Sloth

from USA

Pros

  • Awesome speakers
  • Light, easy to carry
  • Loads of instruments
  • Lots of controls/effects
  • Realistic sound
  • Smooth playability
  • Wallet-friendly price

Cons

  • 1/4 output has slight static
  • A little too bulky
  • Could use better rhythm presets

Best Uses

    I have used this keyboard as part of my home gear for recording video game soundtracks, I have used this live and in private band sessions, and I've even used it sitting in bed. The realistic sounds and controls of the instruments is awesome (especially with headphones), and it's super light and a breeze to carry around between gigs and to and from your house. For my home setup, it's a little too long so unless you're sitting straight in front of it, it feels a little too big. But that's just my preference. This keyboard is bound to please anyone (especially because of the price).

    WORLDS BEST KEYBOARD

    By Swordfish10-4n3lO

    from El Paso, TX

    See all my reviews

    This keyboard is super cool. It is amazing, with all of its features. The one thing I cannot get over is the realistic sounds that come out of it. It is like no other I have ever heard of, I am not joking. Other keyboards you can tell sound like they are digital, but this one, it sounds real, like if the instrument was actually there. It is amazing!! A++++

    More features and better sound quality than the comparable DGX model Yamaha. Mod wheel and Smartmedia storage really set it apart. Sounds are stunning!

    It's a workstation

    By Troilus

    from MA

    See all my reviews

    This thing reminds me why I've loved Casio for so long. This instrument has the best MIDI implementation I've seen on any keyboard in a while. It's light enough to bring in the kitchen for breakfast, and back to the studio until lunch... Line output, so you can listen directly through powered monitors - this thing sounds good through the built-in speakers, but it's shocking how good it sounds through real monitors. Still disovering new sounds after a couple of weeks of endless play. Buy one - you won't regret it.

    Casio is good for your wallet and ears

    By N--xQbL

    from Riga

    Saw it. Noticed its low price. Bought it. And it proved to be very good, except for onboard memory limitations, because some tones are nearly 1 MB (thankfully, a memory card can be used), as a result of which older tones often need to be overwritten.

    Very nice keyboard...but a couple of issues

    By Ken Starr

    from Italy

    See all my reviews

    Depending on what you're trying to do, this keyboard could be very helpful. For live performances on a small level it's great. Plenty of sounds and effects. My favorite is the enhancer effect, there's a big difference when used. For studio production there's a few issues. Most of the sounds are ran through DSP, giving them a reverb/hall effect. This can be overcame by adding the reflect effect to it, but that takes from the integrity of the tone. This can be a problem for your bass line. There is a sequencer I still haven't figured out, maybe I'm slow. Bottom line, this a great keyboard for the price.

    Casio in now playing with the leaders!

    By Bob H

    from Lakeview, OR

    See all my reviews

    As an older keyboardist and player of EKBs for over twenty years including a Sequential Circuits T-8, I love the WK3500. Wonderful sounds, terrific organs, and incredible pianos. Accompaniment, intros and endings are truly remarkable. As far as I'm concerned, Casio has just trumped all the other keyboards in its pricerange.

    Good Value

    By Javier Rodriguez

    from Carolina, PR

    Good piano sounds and excellent B3 organs sounds with an excellent rotary speaker simulator. Good EP sounds too, but the only thing that don't like is that Casio don't have a software version for Mac OS9 to donwload new sounds, patterns and EFX at the Casio Web Page (only PC). Maybe Casio doesn't know that Mac Computers are the best for music making! (In my opinion) But anyway, the keyboard WK3500 is really good.

    an amaaaaazing little machine

    By dr.dave

    from Albany, NY

    I made three trips to the local store before buying this thing cuz it's just so loaded with good sounds and features. And on every trip I compared it against the usual stable of workstations and the Casio simply BLEW AWAY the others for the quality and usefulness of the sounds. I've had it now for 2 weeks and, although setting up the registry memories (full setups w/ splits, layers, effects and accompaniments) is a somewhat convoluted process, the results are simply stunning. I'm getting set to ditch half of my legacy MIDI modules and am only keeping my trusty E-mu Vintage. I quite honestly would've payed twice what I did to get the quality of sounds this thing cranks out, but to get it for this price is the best keyboard value I have ever seen in my 25 years of buying keys. Period.

    An Incredible Keyboard

    By Music for Your Head, the band.

    from Estherville, IA

    I bought the keyboard because of all the features and because a friend of mine had one very similar. I started a band and this keyboard has helped tremendously. The musical quality, tone and pitch are all perfect and the sound is spot on. No other keyboard does this much for the price.

    Great Keyboard for the non-keyboard snob

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I me start off by confessing that I am a guitar player by nature. I bought the WK3500 at one of the MF clearence centers...it was a scratch and dent so I picked it up for $300. I researched several keyboards before making the purchase. I wanted something I could use in my home studio that had midi capabilities with a good enough overall sound to keep me interested. I have been playing and recording with this thing for a few weeks now and I am very pleased with the purchase. Some of the onboard tones have the expected "keyboard" quality to them...especially if you lean more towards the purist side. But the pianos and organs are quite good for this price. And there are plenty of synth type sounds that are very cool to play with. If you are a high end professional piano/keyboard player...chances are you probabaly won't even take the time to read this review. Let's face it...a pro probabaly isn't going to buy a casio. When it comes to acoustic guitars...I probably wouldn't look very closely at a yamaha either...so I can't say I blame you. But for everyone else...this unit is outstanding for the price. If you are looking for a very cool instrument with a ton of capabilites for under $500 I personally don't think you can go wrong with this little gem

    It's the best price ever

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I just wanna say that this is the lowest price so far on this board. I wish there was a sound byte to hear but there isn't, so I'll just wait until I purchase it. Thank you for this remarkable work of music! God bless!

    WK-3000 and 3500 ARE The bomb!!!

    By Jazzman619

    from San Diego, CA

    I bought a WK 3000(literaly the same as the 3500) and wow I loved the auto acomp. The intros and endings are cool. The sequencer needs to be improved cuz I get a lot of cutoffs when I use the 6 tracks. But It's worth it for the money, I have more fun using this keyboard than the other "top" keyboards.

    Best beginner synth on the market

    By Ryan-yZ.8i

    from Earth

    As a performing jazz and progressive rock/metal keyboardist, this keyboard has exceeded all my expectations. You'd swear that some of the sounds capable of being created came from keyboards at 4 times the price.The presets themselves are quite decent. The distorted guitars and synth leads are lacking, but nothing that cannot be fixed with your own tweaking.The effects and synth parameters on this keyboard are top notch. Simple enough for a beginner to control, but powerful enough to impress professional musicians with leads accurately emulating those of Sherinian and Johansson.I would highly recommend this as a first keyboard. Aside from the silly techno junk that kids get a kick out of in Guitar Center, there is very little that this keyboard cannot do in comparison to higher end boards. If you are a keyboardist focused on your playing and not creating synthesized beats, this keyboard will not disappoint you.The only thing I can say bad about this is the action...a bit light, but that's just my personal preference. With a nice semi weighted midi controller, this keyboard has still not ceased to amaze me. Well worth the money.

    Speechless

    By Niaz

    from New York

    It really leaves a keyboardist speechless!! I gotta say...I used to compose music using the PSR290, which I thought to be good...but...I was surfing the net for keyboards outta the blue and *!*BAM*!*...there I saw the Casio WK3500...now...the music I make is off the hook, without sounding conceited...I performed on stage with this keyboard...in one sentence...if you want a keyboard to grow up with, THIS IS IT!!! DO NOT even consider another one because the CASIO WK3500 IS WHAT YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR!
