Best Keyboard Amplifiers in 2020



Roland 4-channel Mixing Keyboard Amplifier, 100 watt (KC-200) Review:


I bought this little amp 17 years ago to go with my full size digital keyboard. It plays all the frequencies cleanly across from top to bottom. It get's very loud w/o any distortion.I have used it for outside gigs playing bass, accordion, and acoustic guitar. Because it covers all frequencies, it's great for all instruments. There is nothing fancy, but it just keeps going. When my stereo broke years ago, I used it as an amp for home audio. Roland amps are just great!



BIGTEDDY - Piano Stickers for 37/49/54/61/88 Key Keyboards - Tranparent Removable Labels for Kids Beginner Learning Music Note Suitable all Brands Review:


I'm really happy with these stickers. They fit perfectly on my kids' 66 key casio keyboard. I really like that it tells you where to put the stickers based on how many keys you have, as trying to figure that out myself wouldn't have been easy for me! I messed up placement on a few of the stickers but was easily able to peel them up and re-situate them and you'd never know.



Peavey KB 1 20W Keyboard Amp Review:


This is my 3rd keyboard amp in this price/watt range. I had a Crate amp that I gave up on 3 years ago. It developed a short in the main volume knob that I had fixed once, but the problems came back. It's still in my garage, worthless. I bought a Behringer Ultratone 45w to replace the Crate amp. This Ultratone amp seemed to have a lot of features, like equalizer, echo control, etc. But the echo control renders it worthless. The equalizer is redundant to the controls on the synthesizer, and need to be fixed at neutral anyway. I get tons of FX feedback. And it hums. Still, it works pretty well. Only, I didn't realize how bad the sound quality was until I put it side-by-side with this Peavey amp. I used the Peavey in conjunction with the Behringer as a PA system for a Halloween haunted forest this week. Between the two of them, we had plenty of sound to spare over a 10 acre forested area. The Peavey was clearly the winner. The volume on the Peavey was noticeably louder and we had to turn the Peavey down considerably to balance to the distortion level of the Behringer. The Peavey doesn't have a bunch of worthless 'features' to get in the way of quality sound and volume. It's solid, heavy, the knobs feel sturdy, and there is like NO distortion, even turned all the way up. I haven't connected it to a live keyboard/synthesizer yet, but as a PA system, it is fantastic for the price. It's a little more pricey than Crate/Behringer options. But way less than the Roland. I heard the Roland amp in my local music store, and it was solid, but its over $100 more than the Peavey. Having done the comparison of (4) competing models, this one is clearly the winner.

Behringer Ultratone KT108 Ultra-Compact 15-Watt Keyboard Amplifier Review:


For a small, lightweight amplifier, it does a decent job. Keep in mind, you are not going to achieve a full and rich sound from your keyboard using this amp, but would recommend it for portable amplification. Works well for jam sessions and practice but is not suitable for live performance. This should not be used as a primary amp for large, professional workstations or keyboards (such as the Motif or Triton). As long as you know what you are looking for in an amp and want something small and light OR do not need professional sound from your amp, this will work perfectly.



BEHRINGER Keyboard Amplifier, Black (KXD12) Review:


Can’t say enough good things about this amp, especially at its price point. I play keyboards in a rock band and was looking for a small amp to take both practice and to gigs and landed upon this one after a bunch of research. It has all the features you will ever need, great tone, and is much less expensive than the big-name competitor. I love all of the multi channel input which allows me to run both of my keyboards and a microphone through dedicated lines into the amo, where I can mix and adjust both volume and tone. I’ve recommended this amp to many other keyboard players and musicians I know in the Washington DC area and several have already bought it. All have said they absolutely love it .
