Behringer KT108 15 Watt Ultratone Keyboard Amplifier reviewed here.
Want a lightweight keyboard amplifier for practice or to do smaller gigs? The KT108 provides a clean & powerful sound (high mid & low), available at a reasonable price.
It’s not really loud (only 15 watt) but does work well for limited volume situations. You may use it as general purpose amplifier and even for electronic drums.
- PROS: Value for Money, Lightweight
- CONS: Less power (suitable for practice or small gigs)
There are many keyboard players who use this amp, when they’re not happy with the built-in speakers that the piano keyboard provides.
If you have a good DGX or YPG keyboard, you may consider using this amp to further enhance the sound of your grand-keyboard. You can use the amplifier’s three band equalizer to tweak the bass, mid-range and treble piano notes. This keyboard amplifier also has a headphone output for silent practicing.
Here are the main features of Behringer KT108 Amp:
- 2-channel keyboard amplifier
- Powerful 20-watt, 8″ dual-cone speaker for wide frequency response
- 2 instrument inputs, separate volume control for each channel
- Tube-like sound because of VTC Virtual Tube Circuitry
- Dedicated 3-band EQ for ultimate sound shaping
- CD input to let you play along to your favorite music
- Separate headphone output
- If you buy a couple of these, you can run them in stereo
- Rugged construction
This amplifier has 8″ speaker, which actually is not large enough to reproduce very low bass frequencies with any power. But that would apply to any keyboard amp with an 8″ speaker, so if you need your music to have powerful bass-heavy material, its better to buy a keyboard amp with 10″ or 12″ speakers.
Experienced players (in case you’re attracted to the price of this amp) need to remember that this one doesn’t have any line-out (it does have a headphone out jack), no built-in effects, and no effects loop. But at this price point, it’s not reasonable to expect these features.
If you’ve never used an amplifier for your keyboard, you’re going to love this one as your first amp; your keyboard will sound ten times better than with the internal speakers. Its cheap (Behringers are cheap) but works great. You can always have your guitar friend jam with you or probably have a singer friend singalong, this amp takes 2 instruments input. For the price, there’s not much to complaint; a great amp for practicing, a noiseless, lightweight, and powerful amplifier.
