Casio Keyboard Competition
In 1980, the original Casiotone CT-201 allowed anyone to make music, regardless of skill level or budget. With the CT-S1, its spiritual successor, the bar has been raised. The Casiotone CT-S1 is a great-sounding, stylish, ultra-portable keyboard designed for anyone to enjoy playing. Its incredible sound quality makes it an ideal musical partner for beginners and seasoned players alike, and its sleek, portable design makes it fun to play anytime, anywhere.
Here are just a few of the specs:
- 61 full sized keys with touch response
- Stereo grand piano and 60 other AiX powered tones
- Powerful bass reflex stereo speaker with surround effect
- Easy one-button recorder
It’s on special at the moment for only $469 and if you purchase it during the month of October and fill out a survey about the keyboard and your purchase, you could win one of ten prize packs! 🏆 It includes a keyboard bag, heavy-duty sustain pedal and wireless midi and audio adaptor.
You know what to do! For more information and to place your order, follow the green buttons below.

Lizard Spit Cleaning Equipment
I don’t know how they came up with the name but once you’ve heard it, it sticks! Lizard Spit makes some great eco-friendly instrument care products and one of their most popular is the microphone sanitiser. Now, more than ever, it’s important to clean everything! 🧼
Andrew (Hazzardsound) uses it on all his mics 🎤before and after a recording session or live gig. (We’re very fortunate to be able to still do them in Qld at the moment). The formula used has a drying agent to protect the microphone diaphragm and is only $16.95 a bottle.
