    I had one that was destroyed when my car flooded. i love the sound of the lo-fi samples but unless i was missing something it did not retain samples when i turned it off.

    I have an SK-200 in MINT condition that I may want to sell, with original box, packing, and manual. This Keyboard spent the 90's in it's box, it is in PERFECT condition and complete. Email if interested, it's a great board. And yes, all samples are retained when you turn it off.

    I own an SK-200 in clean, boxed condition as is the manual & sample tape. This is first hand and still I think I've still got the receipt (for £229.99!). It was packed away every time after use and not used to collect dust. I may be putting this on eBay (in the U.K.) at some time but I thought I'd let anyone who's looking here to get first chance of it. I haven't yet seen any appear (or that have appeared) on eBay yet. I can e-mail pictures etc no problem if requested.

    I have the manual for this great cheapo synth in case someone needs it. I bought it for 20 euros which is exactly the price this type of machinery is worth ;-) It came with the original power supply, the manual AND THE BOX, believe me or not... great for live performances and built as a tank. Remember the time when you could buy a MS20 fort less than a couple of bucks (or the time when yamaha gave away their little analogues as a gift to DX7 buyers?). Maybe some time casio samplers WILL be collectors' items as well ;-) DDN

    This is probably the greatest instrument I've ever owned (And I've owned alot). It's limitations make it all the more exciting. The samples are lo-fi and that's it's charm, most definately. Never used for it's preset sounds we used this little guy on our album "The Simple Words We Wasted" ( www.millbrookmusic.com ) and it went right along side in an orchestral arrangement and sounded great in all it's lo-fi glory
    Daniel Horine  [deejay968-AT-juno.com]  www.millbrookmusic.com  10/04/2004 12:59
    I had this in the late 80's and loved the damned thing! I even made a bunch of songs with it, which you can find at http://www.analoguesque.com/thewilsons/hobbies.htm in the Late 80's and 90's section. They're probably only fun to listen to for those of us who owned an SK-200, but it's good memories (I think?!?). :)

    haha.. had one of these since I was 12.. its missing keys.. a cat pissed on it.. left in the garage for years..looks like hell but I still love the sampler.. the envelopes are awesome and the sample banks are handy, though the battery backup died.. other than that the rest of the board is crap.. but it has some chessy fun qualities.. haha.. are these things really worth that much?? I know they are rare but 80 bux?? and who needs a manual for this?? it's not rocket science.. its CASIO!!

    squidfanny  [squidforhands-AT-yahoo.co.uk]  05/11/2008 10:55
    I have the manual for 'casio sk-200'... Unfortunatly I've killed the unit while circuit bending, it was pretty badly corroded from the batteries which had been left inside for 10 years, but the massive array of bends I put in finnaly 'finnished him'..... Anyway, , I'll scan the manual within the next week or two and upload it somewhere and put a link on this (great) site. ............peace y'all............
    squidfanny  [squidforhands-AT-yahoo.co.uk]  06/23/2008 01:28

    Sorry for delay (and previous angry manual related outburst), here is the manual for Casio sk-200. It's a slightly rough scan, but all the pages are there, and you should be able to read them ok. Peace y'all......... whoops......won't let me post the link. . . . . . er, give me a shout and I can e-mail link.....:-)

    Well, nearly 5 years later from first putting it up on here, I still have the SK-200! It's in clean, boxed condition as is the manual & a sample tape (Dixons). This is my own and have the receipt (£229.99). It was packed away every time after use and not used to collect dust. I may put this on eBay (in the U.K.) at some point (I said that last time, I know! :D ) but I thought I'd let anyone who's looking here to get first look. I haven't seen one on there yet. I can e-mail pictures or post on a website, if requested. Also have a "make-do" power supply which will get it working.

    I've had an sk200 for a few years. I got it cheap (£20) and battered the shit out of it, before i realised they were pretty rare... getting carried away at gigs and playing it with my feet... you know, dumb stuff. We used to be improvised so i figured it didn't matter, and that i'd just get something else when it was broken. However, since then, we've written songs, and a fair few of them are utterly reliant on the sk200 (tried a bunch of other casios - no good, this one has something very specific about the way it works with the pedals i run it through). My sk-200 now has a total of 11 keys missing! So I have two questions... does any one have an sk200 they would like to sell me for anything up to £100? any more than that, and i'll just find a replacement because i'm too broke to afford more. and if not, does any one know what other casios use the same keys, so that i can get one of those and replace the keys broken in mine!?!?
    Dom  [domclare-AT-hotmail.com]  www.chinchillaweb.co.uk/chops  03/02/2009 03:50

    If anyone is still looking for the manual, as far as I can tell, the SK-100 is nearly identical (though mono, not stereo.) The download link to the manual for that is on the front page of this site. Also, if anyone is still looking to buy an sk-200, let me know. I have one that is in very good condition, except for paint rubbed off on the edges and tiny scratches on a few keys. Functionally it's perfect. I'm looking to raise 60 Euro or so, enough to buy or trade for a Casio SK-60, Yamaha VSS-30, or some 32-48 key lighted key synth for my kids. I bought the SK-200 new in the U.S., brought it over to Ireland. I recently got a Concertmate 990 which doesn't sample but has MIDI. The SK-200 is lots of fun. I think it's helping our toddler learn to talk and it's loads of fun to play with the sounds of a blown coke bottle, struck horseshoe, flute, guitar, or voices (forward or backward), mellotron samples... whatever! I just wish it were smaller since it's our second keyboard and will eventually become the kid's keyboard.

    Don't let anyone kid you that this isn't as good as..blah-blah-blah! This, with the sk2100, are the best of the Casio mini samplers. Lots of features, superior build quality, less of a toy, and stereo. Also, a good sequencer. Very rare. Don't expect to ever see one! If you do, buy whatever the price..
    Mikey  [saynomore4-AT-hotmail.com]  08/19/2009 08:03
    I just bought an SK-200 on eBay in excellent condition and am wondering if anyone has found a proper manual for it yet? I do not want to circuit-bend it, but I do want to install a MIDI upgrade from Highly Liquid, as it's been successfully installed in an SK-100. Anyone have a link to their own copy of the SK-200 manual? Thanks!
    Alex Andersson  [casiosk1-AT-yopmail.com]  12/15/2009 06:28
    I can't get over how heavy the SK-200 is. It's even heavier than a VSS-200 fully loaded with batteries! The magnets on it's speakers must be huge because the SK-200 does have quite a loud, powerful amp built into it. The one thing I like about the SK-200 is that it feels as solid as a brick s**thouse and the sample quality is charmingly warm and clear when compared to an SK-1, SK-5, SK-8, etc. The style, shape and colour of the casing is quite dull when compared to the fantastic looking SK-1/5/8/60 models, but the membrane buttons feel really nice to the touch and make operating it a breeze. I'm not quite convinced the SK-200 microphone was well placed... and the on/off button almost looks like it was put there as an afterthought (could have been intergrated into the main volume slider, ala-SK-1). All in all, I think the SK-200 is solid, reliable and it's sample-quality sounds great... very comparable to the Yamaha VSS-30/100/200 sample quality. If you happen to come across one for sale on eBay then I highly recommend you snap it up. It makes a wonderful addition to anyone's retro-keyboard rig!
    Alex Andersson  [casiosk1-AT-yopmail.com]  01/28/2010 08:51
    After about 20 years of my SK-200 going with me all over the U.S. and now Ireland without a single problem and only a few scuffs and scratches to show its age, my 2-year-old boy managed to crack one of the black keys. So I took it apart to epoxy the key. And while I had it apart I took photos for people on this forum. Have a look at my website (opensourcemechanic) to see what it looks like under the hood. It is a good solid keyboard and there are loads of high quality discrete components and interesting ICs that would make good bend points if I were interested in such things. For a while I was considering selling it but I think I'd have to get almost $100 to be able to find a replacement that is as fun as this one. Maybe the SK-60 or DJX? I like the size of the SK-1 but it is nice to have more mid-size keys. This keyboard's mid size keys are perfect for me and the kids. I don't know why Casio or Yamaha don't take advantage of cheap memory and ASICs and make an inexpensive "toy" sampling keyboard of this size with a higher sample rate and more memory. BTW the sample rate is higher than the SK-1. Alex and pizzaguy, just look at the manual for the SK-100, it's available on this website as a pdf. The SK-200 is functionally identical except the sound quality is better (stereo.) P.S. If anyone knows where I can get a replacement set of black keys (they come grouped, 10 together on a single piece of plastic), please let me know. The epoxy job worked fine but if I had a spare set of keys, I think this keyboard would last forever.
