The perfect starting point for keyboard players

The Startone MK-300 provides an extensive range of sounds as well as useful practice options, making it a very good point of entry into the world of keyboards. The 61 velocity-sensitive keys provide a five-octave range and a high C, and the sound selection is rich and varied. The Startone MK-300 features an integrated metronome and a removable stand for reading sheet music. Different learning modes allow you to approach all kinds of musical scenarios with ease. The front panel includes a sustain button, and a connection for an external sustain pedal (available as an option) is provided on the back. The Startone MK-300 thus provides everything you need to get playing in no time at all.

Nuanced and detailed with different learning modes

The Startone MK-300 delivers complex sound generation with 399 different voices and makes even nuances audible – an important factor when it comes to practising with attention to detail. It has a 64-note polyphony, more than the number of keys on the keyboard. This feature is particularly useful when using the Dual mode, which allows you to play two voices simultaneously. The Lower mode allows you to assign a different voice to the left hand, e.g. for playing bass notes separately. The Keyboard Split function means that each hand can play a different voice, which is particularly useful for practising and performing complete pieces. Finally, a drum kit playable from the keyboard is included for practising rhythms with more precision.

Pure playability for beginners

The variety of sounds and rhythms offers beginners a wide range of different settings with which to play and learn. The control panel is clearly laid out and includes rotary controls for volume and for voice and song selection. Unlike a weighted keyboard, that of the MK-300 is easy to play thanks to its low resistance. The sensitivity of the velocity response can be set to soft, normal, and hard, or even switched off completely. Weighing just 4.5 kg, the keyboard is easy to transport – and since it can run on AA batteries, it can also be played cordlessly. The headphone output will allow you to practise late at night, while the two 10-watt speakers can be used for intimate performances. A USB port allows MIDI data to be recorded, so song ideas can be quickly saved and edited on a computer.

About Startone

The Startone brand is exclusive to Thomann and was established in 2005 in order to offer high-quality, playable instruments for ambitious beginners even in the lowest price bracket. This resulted in a steadily growing range of wind instruments for beginners, which has since expanded to include keyboard and stringed instruments, accordions, and even drum sets. The product range combines proven quality with low prices – and Thomann naturally provides a full three-year warranty on all Startone instruments. The brand's mission is to always provide the motivated beginner with a reliable, good-quality first instrument at an unbeatable price.

Practice makes perfect

As well as offering players a wide range of tones, the Startone MK-300 also includes a library of 110 complete songs and eight demo songs. Some of the songs have extended intros and endings, fill-ins, and transitions, allowing you to practise as you would with a real band. Every level of difficulty is covered, meaning that beginner and advanced keyboard players alike will always have something new to practise and improve their skills. The LCD display shows the names of the chords played as well as the notes in the various exercises. The rhythm, tempo, sound, effect, and mix parameters can be saved using the four dedicated memory buttons so that they can be quickly recalled during later sessions, and songs can also be recorded internally using the integrated recording function.

Good start
Michalthemighty, 11.05.2018
The Startone keyboard was bought as a beginner set alongside with stand and headphones.
It delivers what you need when you are starting to play on piano. Velocity sensitive keys are huge advantage, even more in this price range.
USB MIDI is good to have, however I didn't use it yet.
Pitch bend looks flimsy, however it works and gives me possibility to use it.
Piano is loud enough for exercise in the room. The quality of the speakers is not bad, but I wouldn't use them for anything else then own practice.
One of the biggest advantage is the graphical display and all the options of set up that piano gives you.

I didn't find many cons of this product, in this price point its really hard to beat it. However the construction of piano could be improved, as the material look and feels cheap. This doesn't include the keys which are fine.

If you want to start learning piano or want one just for fun, I think Startone is a good choice.

Great key-sensitive keyboard
JayH, 28.10.2017
I was looking for a key-sensitive keyboard for my son for Christmas. I was hoping to find something not too expensive, I knew I wouldn't find anything with weighted keys in my price range, so this was the next best thing. I also wanted no less than 61 keys, which it has.

It's a good keyboard, you get a lot for the money. I bought the kit, with the stand and headphones.

There are a great number of sounds, and these sound pretty good. The speakers are reasonable too, although I'd prefer to plug it into an amplifier for more bass personally, but that's probably just me.

There really isn't anything wrong with it at all. My only slight irritation, and I'm sure it is for most parents is... "The Demos"!

Demos are great in themselves, and can be slowed down, and learned. But they are irritating. I wish manufacturers would spend that money on more sounds, or something else. They are never a selling a point.

It's not a "kids" keyboard at all, but I imagine a lot of kids will get them at Christmas, the demos detract from the actual practicing the kids should be doing, i.e. playing, not using it as a duke-box!

Anyway, again, lovely for the money guys!

Nice for the price
Nate the Enthusiast, 11.04.2017
Overall, this is a good keyboard to start learning on. It is nice that it ships with a power supply.

The keys are responsive, the built-in functions are intuitive, and it offers a lot of flexibility without being too complicated.

I did have one issue initially; when I put batteries in it, it wouldn't power up. One of the positive battery contacts was not contacting the post of the battery. I remedied this by prying up the contacts with a small screwdriver, and it powered up no problem.

It has the two features I really wanted; velocity-sensitive keys and USB MIDI. It would be nice if it had an audio line-in, but that's a small thing.

Another nice feature is how well-designed the stereo speaker system is. If you hit a key on the left, the sound comes more from the left. The same is true for the right and center.

It is also nice that all of the voicings, styles, and such are printed in the instruction manual.

I plugged it into my computer, and it was immediately recognized in Reason, EZKeys, and EZDrummer. Good stuff.

Overall, I am very happy with this keyboard, especially for the price.

Very good quality/price ratio
David Cuesta G, 03.03.2021
I was not expecting a professional keyboard. It has an amazing quality-price ratio. The materials are not very robust, so better not to be transported. The sensitivity of the keys is very random; if you press the keys smoothly they don't even sound.
Best product for beginners that are not very sure if they will like it.
For the sake of honesty:
- Low quality product
- Very good price for its features
- Perfect for beginners
- Not for transportation
- Not if you're very motivated and definitely want to learn playing the piano because you will soon need something better
