Overview

Imagine a keyboard amp that's been designed with the same passion, attention to detail, and enthusiasm as today's leading guitar and bass amplifiers. That's the Alto Kick15.

The Kick15 represents a new and more powerful amplifier design for keyboardists, drummers and those needing a personal PA. You get 400 Watts of peak power in a true bi-amped design with a custom-tuned electronic crossover, an integrated four-channel mixer, and built-in Alesis effects. Just like Alto Professional's industry-leading Truesonic loudspeakers, the Kick15 is a fine-tuned, performance-hungry machine. Each component has been optimized for maximum efficiency, giving you an amplifier that sounds amazing, is lightweight, and has everything you need without the filler.

The Kick15 incorporates modern circuitry to give you 400 Watts of peak power in an astonishingly lightweight enclosure. It's been designed and tuned by passionate audio enthusiasts to give you the best audio quality and power output in its class. With the Kick15, none of that massive power gets wasted. Even the speaker baffle has been designed to direct your sound with precision, holding both the woofer and tweeter at a slight upward angle to accomplish the best throw.

At its heart the Kick15 is multifunctional. Its host of inputs and outputs, on-board four-channel mixer, and built-in effects allow you to use it as keyboard amp, drum monitor, electronic percussion amplifier or even as PA system for small to medium-sized gigs. With this much versatility, you need an amplifier that's going to run efficiently and sound great night after night. The Kick15 has a true bi-amped design, giving its 15" LF woofer and 1" HF driver each its own dedicated amplifier. Neither gets overworked and neither gets neglected. You hear every frequency, clean and crystal clear.

The Kick15 comes with 16 genuine Alesis effects, including delay, flanger, chorus and multiple reverbs. Each effect has 16 different variations, giving you a total of 256 effect presets to choose from. A footswitch input allows you to activate or bypass the effects channel instantly while you perform (footswitch not included). FX Level controls are located on all four channels, allowing you to dial in just the right amount of effect on each channel.

The Kick15 from Alto Professional is a reimagining of what a keyboard amp should be, built from the ground up. Massive power, essential capabilities, and precision-engineered components come together to give you an amplifier that sounds and performs better.

Comments about Alto Kick15 400W Instrument Amplifier/PA:

Great for small gigs/clubs. Like the built in effects.When using 2 keyboards at the same time it tends to bottom out whenever more volume is needed for adlibs, etc. Love the portability and the sturdiness of the whole unit.Built very well. No rattles. Fits in the back seat of my Honda Accord very well.

Compact Size Delivers HUGE Sound Stage

By Raymond

Comments about Alto Kick15 400W Instrument Amplifier/PA:

A simple, easy-to-use, single-box PA system was a must for our small Church and the Kick 15 has proven to be just the ticket! Currently we only use the Kick 15 for vocals but the combination of power, 15" driver and Alesis effects have proven to be nothing short of astonishing! Being more-or-less a one-man-band for praise & worship at our Church I can testify to the fact the Kick 15 makes set-up and tear-down a snap, and dialing-in the correct Level, EQ and Effects takes no time at all! With settings established the Kick 15 not only elevates my performance but exceeds my expectations! Certainly I can't say the Kick 15 is the perfect single-box PA system for everyone in all situations but for our small Church venue it's truly been a God send!

Decent Acoustic / Vocal amp

By Howie Silinski

from Matthews, NC

Comments about Alto Kick15 400W Instrument Amplifier/PA:

Bought this to play my classical, acoustic thru for gigging and recording. Very clean sounding amp, great tones and response. Versatile for adding vocals, and keyboard loops. Blew away the Acoustic ag120s. 2 complaints 1. Have to turn up the master and channel controls to 9 to get the volume I need 2. The sound effects (chorus, flange, etc) are very cheap sounding, almost like they are broken. Will need to check back in the store to be sure it is not faulty cicuitry.

PRACTICE AMP

By Mark Randall

from Sarnia /Ontario /Canada

Comments about Alto Kick15 400W Instrument Amplifier/PA:

This amp has good tone ,it maybe okay as a keyboard amp ? I tried it as an amp for my 2Box Drumit Five thinking that 400 watt's would be plenty of horse power for even a good sized room as I was using a Yorkville Bloc 100K key board amp and I needed just a little more out of it because I was running it at 3/4 master and 3/4 on channel 1 input and at 3/4 output on the module with not much head room left.Not liking to run everything almost full out I thought this would be great.I could run everything at 1/2 volume or less and still have lot's of headroom .Played a small club last night (good test run)had the ALTO maxed and the guitar player uses an acoustic bled though the mains. I could hear myself but still got drowned out in parts.Very exaggerated wattage the yorkville had more ball's than this thing my guess is that it's more like 80 watts maybe it's like the Behringer K300FX Ultratone 4Channel 300 watt keyboard amp.It's really 75 watts a channel added them up and you get 300 watts but that's not the total output of a single channel.These companies that rate stuff this way should be made to say how many watts per channel there amps put out ,they are very misleading.
