Bought one of these new years ago with an MT-68 (My first Casio's). Was gimmicky then and still is. The features then were good for a fun or beginners keyboard. The eight lead sounds are for the most part bland, the chord sections is quirky as are the drum sounds. Anyhow it's not going to be much good nowadays (no midi, basic sequencing, monophonic sounds) except as limited sample fodder. You'll get bored with its limitations pretty quick. I've seen these sell on ebay for quite large sums of money, I think it's because younger musicians think they're getting something vintage, ergo special. You'd be better buying Casio's CZ / VZ range of synths instead, excellent value for money. Sorry...

Graham, shes possibly dead. These things are old and often beaten up..or have mods...that kills them quick. The 30 has different and less popular drum patterns than the VL and PT1/10. It does more but is worth less! The chord function is great..sounds quite professional. Buy if you find one. Like all these things, they're coming rare. You see one now and then at garage sales. I love them all.

A rad little keyboard if you like that funky vintage sound like I do. The only complaint is that you can't play chords on the keys; you can only make chords by pushing these little keys on the side. A positive side to that though, is that you can have any chord type you want (minor,major,sus,dim,ect..) at the push of a botton. Good for sampling.

I'm not a professional musician. I'm a producer/editor in television production and have to come up with music effects and original music for opens and closers. I hire a freelance musician to finish a composition based on little tunes I create with my PT-30. I bought this thing back in 1982 when it came out. Used my hard earned money from a paper route to by this thing at Best Products. Cost me just under $200 and PISSED my father off to no end because I was "wasting my hard earned money on some cheap toy". Almost 20 years later, and this thing is still extremely useful! It's rarely left my side, and I plan on using it til it breaks. By the way, does anyone have any info on where I could find new/used ROM packs? Does anyone have any experience with the ROM packs? Were they useful accessories? Would greatly appreciate any info on this. thanks!
