Casio CZ keys: are they all the same (CZ101 vs CZ5000)?

In your Casio CZ parts page, it say “click here for CZ-101 Keys.” Are these the same keys used in the larger CZ-x000 synths? I need to order a key for a CZ-5000. Just checking before I add it to my cart. Thanks!

Hi, the CZ101 had ‘mini’ keys not full size the (CZ3000 and CZ5000 had ‘Full size’ keys), so therefore would not be compatible. Paul.


I totally spaced the 101’s mini-keys! Anyone have any full sized CZ keys?

We haven’t had a 1000/3000/5000 keyboard come through, so we don’t know what key type they use. But we do have a number of different Casio keys available. If you can post a picture of a removed key, we might be able to match it.

It looks like a Matsushita keybed, and your K103U keys listed under the Casio CT series seem to match up extremely well.

Those are the only keys I can think of that have the Y-shaped structure where it presses onto the contact strips. So if the CZ-5000 keys also have that Y-shape, I’m betting that it’s a perfect match.

I just got around to working on this CZ-5000 today, and the K103U keys are identical. You might want to update your parts listings to show they are compatible with the CZ-5000.

I don’t know for sure if they’re compatible with the other CZ synths with full size keys though, but it looks like the CZ-3000 has the same keybed & keys.

Thanks for letting us know! I’ve updated our site.

Hi - I’m looking for CZ1000 keys. The eBay sellers I’ve seen are listing 1000, 3000 & 5000 as interchangeable but that’s not the case, the 1000 keys are longer and resemble the Roland D-Series, though not closely enough to be a swap. If you still have a stock of spare Casio keys would you please check your inventory against these pics of the 1000 keys? Thanks, Matt.

That is not a key style that we have available, but I will keep on the lookout for it!
