The Roland Roland KC-200 4-Channel Mixing Keyboard Amplifier packs in a newly designed 100-watt amplifier capable of great frequency spread, a 12-inch woofer for excellent projection and industry acclaimed build quality.
4 channel mixer and mic input
Although thought of as a keyboard amp, a key feature of this KC series amp is the on-board 4 channel mixer and the varied connectivity which it offers. The first channel has dual use as either a XLR microphone input or line level 1/4" jack input. Channels 2 and 3 and 4 all offer 1/4" jack connectivity, great for connecting your keyboard to, although they could be used for other instruments.
Each of the 4 channels has its own level control on the top of the amp, meaning you can set up the perfect mix easily. On top of this there's a pair of RCA connectors which are a great fit when connecting playback equipment such as smartphones or MP3 players, a useful feature for both practice and performance.
100 watts of power
The KC-200 is the middleweight of the KC family, offering a tidy 100 watts of power. This may not be the most powerful keyboard amplifier on the market, but it wasn't designed to be. This level of output is great as a home practice amp, for reasonable on stage re-enforcement during gigs or as a dedicated amplifier at more intimate performances.
External speakers and sub connectivity
For the rare times when you do need more power Roland have added a pair of great breakout options. The line out connection is a fairly standard feature, but an appreciated one none-the-less. You could use this 1/4" jack output to easily give a sound engineer a feed of everything that you're sending to the KC-200. The subwoofer out is a bit more of a unique feature, letting you connect the amp directly to a compatible subwoofer to add some real depth to your output. Want to shape your sound even further? There's a dedicated 2-band EQ to do just that.
The KC-200 will make an excellent workhorse on the stage and reinforce your sound with astonishing detail and a good amount of power. If you need heavyweight sound that you can carry around, the KC-200's the amp for you.
