Casio Sampling Keyboard Index

Identical to the SK200 but has full size keys.



Dang, I really want one of these.

I used to have one back in 1989. A friend now has it, I might buy it back. Sound quality sucks, but the drum-sounds are actually quite rough and cool in their charachter, sounds totally different to other Casio keyboards from the same time. Also, it had a simple sequencer and you could also program your own drum-beats + bass-lines. The sampling sucks :) loow quality, and a think 3 seconds was the maximum length.

I have a casio sk-2100 i am considering selling. Brand new (used twice) with dust cover, original instruction book and power pack. All reasonable offers considered. Cheers
michelle  []  10/13/2002 10:38
i have the opportunity to buy one, how much should I offer? how much is it worth? brian

Don´t pay more than € 75,00, too if it is a rare peace. a friend of mine bought the sk-2100 for € 31,00 and I tested it. Expect of the big keys and an extra volume-fader for the bass (which can be also done on your external mixer´s bass-equalizer) there is really no difference to my sk-200. my favourites of this keyboard are the fully programmable accompainment, the bass-and the drum-sounds, the funky-clav and the synth-sound-preset(there´s not one more good preset sound on the sk-2100, which is really sad-compared to the sk-1to8). you can listen to the drums and bass on the asteroid-rec-sampler "heavy rotation" on a track done by "räuberhöhle" which is really lo-fi.... you also can download the sounds in the late summer 2003 on where I present a big storage of my friends and my big casio-keyboards-collection. björn

huhu, mister johnny weltraum... just interested to read about my song here... hihi... when do i meet yr keyboards? haha
krawalla  []  03/26/2003 02:43
Thanks for the cool site Tony! If it weren't for this page I wouldn't have bought the SK-2100 I found in a pawn shop today. I paid $60.00, they wanted $75.00 and I'm sure I've seen it there for at least 3-4 years. The unit is in excellent condition but missing the battery cover (of course). The funny thing is I just gave away my first keyboard, a Casio I got in probably 1983. I remember as a little kid lusting after a sampler and never being happy with the super cheap, white Casio I had. I'd love to bend the cicuit in this thing but seeing as its kinda rare I think I will keep it stock.

After searching the web and finding virtually no info on this keyboard, I thought I would describe it in detail. 49 full size keys Stereo (2 speakers) Seperate volume controls for: Main, Bass, Chord, Rhythm, and Sample 4 sample pads Top Row: "Sampling, Sampling Long, Effect Select, Rhythm, Rhythm Pattern, Bass Pattern, Chord Pattern, Play, Chord, Melody 1, Melody 2 (sample). Row 2: Piano, Vibraphone, Jazz Organ, Pipe Organ, Trumpet, Flute, Violin, Elec. Guitar, Funky Clav, Synth Ens., Synth Sound. Row 3: Sample 1-4 Row 4: Same as row 2 without Flute or Violin (for splitting keyboard) Row 5: Rock 1, 8 Beat 1, 16 Beat 1, Pops 1, Swing, Slow Rock, Samba, Bossa Nova, Waltz, Program 1, Program 2. Row 6: same but adds Reggae, Funk, Salsa, Beguine and March. The microhone is detachable and has about a 3-4 foot coiled extention chord. Makes sampling guitars a breeze! Also has a sampling Level adjuster slider and LED level meter. The back has a "tune" knob, a "foot volume" jack, stereo outs (2) headphone jack, a/c jack, Mic input and line in input. The unit can run off 6 "D" batteries and will retain samples when tunred off. I've pretty mucj figured out how to use this thing without the manual but I can't figure out how to program rhythms and sequence. Any help would be appreciated!!! or a manual would make you a new best friend!! Hope this helps and I can't say I've had more fun with a keyboard yet!! this thing rocks hard!!
Sam  []  04/07/2003 12:19
I almost forgot!! It also has a bunch of effects (gates, delays, tremolo, etc..) and the coolest features: Reverse and Loop! These really add a lot to its usefullness.

Me too! I have a barely-used SK 2100, but that's it - no manual or power adapter. I would very much appreciate it if someone could email me the manual. I tried the Casio web site, but no luck there. Thanks! --Sigmund
Sigmund Fidyke  []  06/18/2005 11:02
And another one: I'd really appreciate it if someone would mail me the manual! I'm also looking for the wiring schemes as I'm planning to bend it (though I never even opened it yet), so if anyone has them or knows where to find them I'd be really grateful. By the way I ripped mine of a co-worker: said I'd borrow it to check it out, never returned it ;) Used it a couple of times doing acid/noisy livesets, still think the sampling unit has a nice characteristic sound.
Niko  []  07/08/2005 06:01

I have just accquired a casio sk2100 without a manual. Can anyone help me out. Thanks in advance.
Sue Russell  []  10/12/2005 05:10
I have aquired a SK2100. I am prepared to sell it to an interested party. It is in excellent condition, and the only thing that is not in full working order is the microphone. Offers over £50 plus postage. I have the original box, and the manual. I have spent a lot of time copying the manual, and have it on CD,e.mail attachment, or as a paper copy. If anyone wants a manual, I will sell whichever version you require for a fiver. If I can be of any more help please e.mail me. I am a bit of a music geek, so am not too familiar with all the programmes that it is capable of, but anyone wanting one will obviously know all about it. Seems like a nice Christmas present for someone.

Need an SK-2100 MANUAL? I just bought an SK2100 for US$28 at my local flea market today, and now I realize what a great geal it was!!! No adaptor, battery cover or manual (of course), but here's some GOOD NEWS for ALL of the people here also looking for the elusive manual, I FOUND IT ONLINE! For FREE!!! A few minutes of web searching turned it up on the New Zealand Casio site. I can't post the link here (spam concerns I guess!) but email me if you can't find it on your own. It downloaded fine, but it's a 2.2Mb PDF of badly-scanned pages (and inexplicably page 26 is missing!) but MOST of it is readable. At least NOW we can figure out how the SK2100 works! Good luck to all of us! -Ken

If you go to Casio site in australia you can find a reasonable copy of 2100 keyboard operating manual download free . FREE IS GOOD I also have one but may sell it if offer is REAL good. Free info not free product.
dan  []  11/27/2006 07:56
Here is a tease for you. I used to work in music shops until the mid 90's and they had these tucked away in dusty lofts and store rooms along with loads of other portable keyboards. We couldn't even give them away. Most got thrown out or sold for next to nothing out of desperation to regain valuable space. If we could have forseen the lo-fi revolution I would have bought the lot. Never mind, you live and learn.

Anyone knows where to get a manual for the SK-2100 in Spanish?
Manuel  []  05/26/2008 03:08
I love the casio S.K Series of samplers because Casio were the first ones to make the cheapest samplers this side of a FAIRLIGHT. The SK 2100 looks like a fantastic machine to me and i'd love to get my fingers on the keys of that machine. Am willing to swap my Yamaha DJX 2 Keyboard for one and if anyone has one let me know via E-mail.
kris bell  []  09/15/2008 02:16
The keyboard was working fine, but for the last 6-9 months it has been stored in a dry garage. Now it is not working at all. Any clues???
NICK JONES  [ ]  11/01/2009 02:40
I'll definitely be the next guy who snaps up an SK-2100 off eBay... although shipping might be a bit hefty on a keyboard of that size and weight. One for the collection, for sure :)
