With the Roland KC-60 Keyboard Amplifier, you get a whole lot of flexibility for your dollar in this scaled-down model that retains that sought-after KC sound.

Rotary controls adjust channel and headphone outputs plus low and hi EQ. Also, the Roland KC-60 subwoofer output offers big bottom-end potential.

I've had my etherwave theremin for about 9 months. I wanted to spend about $3-400 on an amp and was looking for portabilty and about 30 watts. After auditioning a number of bass and keyboard amps (which is what you need for a theremin) I decided to purchase a Roland KC-60 keyboard amp. 40 watts, 10" speaker, plenty loud, easy to carry. It produces the sound that I've heard in my mind's ear when I play my etherwave. The three band EQ and the etherwave's waveform and brightness controls allows me a wide variety of sounds. Three inputs allow me to use the same amp for vocals (speech), and (with a pre-amp/EQ) mandola. This is the amp for me. I auditioned (in Guitar Center and 2 other music stores) a variety of bass and keyboard amps (Behringer, Orange, Peavey, Fender, and some others I can't remember). The theremin always drew a crowd when I plugged it in to test these amps. That was fun, letting folks try their first theremin. After all of that, I decided on the Roland.
I just bought this unit for my electric keyboard. It just does not have enough power. The speakers crackle when I play the low notes. I have tried everything from turning the input gains up and down and the master volume. Weak speaker. You get what you pay for.
I just play in church, so I don't need alot of volume. I plugged my acoustic/electric Ovation 6-string, and my Ibanez bass guitar into it, and it sounded great in my little 150 seat church. It is my first amp, and first bass guitar, so for someone just starting out, it sure wowed my Mom and family. It might not be adequate for a real head banger, but for what little I do, it was great, and the price was right.
This amp sounds great and has inputs for instruments and mic (XLR). It would be fine for a solo performer at a coffee house, bookstore, e.g., a singer/instrumentalist. I bought it to use with a trio that includes vocals, drums, bass, and it very quickly gets lost in that mix. Just not powerful enough.
Is good for home use. Not good at all to take out to for even a trio gig. Speaker is very sensitive and will start distorting if volume is raised.
Too small for the size! The sound is pretty good but you can't turn it up too much because the speaker can't handle it. Go get the 100+ watt one even though its a little more money.. you may regret this amp.
