Casio EP-30

Casio EP-30

Created in 1987-1988. There were also the EP-10 and EP-20, but they don't sample so aren't featured here.

Has about 1 second of sample time, similar to the SK-10. 5 voices, piano, vibraphone, trumped, flute, clarinet. 6 rythyms - rock, disco, swing, samba, march, waltz. Has a pretty cool demo tune! Other than that it's a pretty lame keyboard.

Has a 1/4" output.

Amazingly rare.

the fact that it samples is killing me... reminds me of my first rig...

Incredible machine! the sounds of the ep-10 are already crazy. i am a self produced french electro musician and i have been using the muppet on both my albums. it's always hard to explain to someone that the sound he is hearing comes from this little turquoise box! Cheers

Arrrgh!!! I overslept and missed bidding on a casio ep-30!!! Is there anyone out there who is willing to sell one? I'm also intrested in finding an ep-20 to fill out the series. Let me know. Arrrgh!!!

I have one of these keyboards in decent condition and you can't have it.
jared    09/12/2005 04:46
Ouch! Jared that hurts. Keep that thing in good shape. Don't do something stupid like circuit bending it all to hell. Leave that for all those SK-1s out there. Jared, would you be willing to record the ep-30s demo tune and posting it, or emailing me an mp3 of it?
Patrick Weise  [irquasar-AT-yahoo.com]  09/13/2005 12:31
I'm currently selling one of these on eBay. Unmodified, in pretty good but not pristine condition. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7401736584 If anyone is really that interested in the demo song, email me before the 30th and I can record it. Take care.

I am the person who bought the Casio ep-30 from you! It has brought me, my girlfriend, and my friends great joy! Just wanted to give a shout out to you Damian. I am working on some songs utilizing the keyboard too. It is so interesting to run the drum patterns through filters and effects. Thanks again! ~BRian~

what is the polyphony on this keyboard? how many keys can you hold down at once, does anyone know. I would be very thankful if someone knew.

I am looking to buy a CAsio EP-10 for my special education class. I had one years ago for my daughter and the kids love it. Please, if anyone has one, contact me. Thanks, Donna
Donna  [d_lendroth-AT-hotmail.com]  01/16/2008 09:56
It has a 4 note polyphony. The output jack is 1/8, not 1/4. Before you record a sample, the sample position of the voice selector is a nice organ sound. The chips inside are CASIO CA91A02, NEC D23C256EAC, NEC D4168C-15, OKI M6238-07, and a LA4138. The handle is very cool. but the SK-1 just kills this as far as features are concerned.

The Casio EP-30 is a great keyboard!! When I was 6 years old my dad bought me this new for $10 in 1988 and I loved it! I used it all the time! Much Much better than any other toy keyboard within the same price range today by far! I loved this thing and took care of it, and still have it to this day and it works great! The 80's were awesome and inspiring unlike today. Has 4 built in songs! The thing haa a 4 note polyphony! for a $10 toy keyboard in 1988 I'd say thats pretty good! I can still jam on the thing. If you get the right sample it can sound pretty awesome! The output is in Stereo and when I was 10 years old I made a recording from it on tape! Best low price toy keyboard ever made! I'm 27 now and still enjoy it to this day! My freinds get a kick out of it! I work with kids and bring it to after school programs etc. and kids still love it and ask where they can get one! Good old 80's tech! Can't go wrong, great product!

I just saw it in NOS condition at flea market. Great lovely piano from Casio.

i circuit-bent my casio ep30, adding 12 glitch switches, a precision pitch oscillator, and a midi IN... it is arguably more awesome than my bent sk-1s, and pretty much the only one out there, as far as i can tell... alls i can say is, BEND IT EVEN IF IT'S RARE

I have 2 of these I bought each at a second hand shop for a couple of bucks, didnt realize they where so rare...
Anonymous  [jamm457-AT-hotmail.com]  05/14/2011 08:42
$3 at a thrift store. I recognized the font that says "sampling keyboard" right away and had to have it. Only after I got it home did I realize that it was so awesome. I am torn between bending it or not.
