Behringer KT-108: Review
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.
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.
Use it With Other Instruments
While this amp is meant for keyboards, you can also use it with other instruments, such as drums and guitar. But that will only for practice or for show off (in case you’re gifting it to a young boy or girl).
Go ahead and use it with a beginner (3/4 or 1/2 size) electric guitar or the electronic drum kit that you got for your 7 year old. It will work fine (won’t blow anything).
But if you are planning to use the Behringer KT108 for use in a small social club, want to connect a Shure mike for vocals and saxophone or guitar for solos, then you may not get the best results. It’s ideally a small practice amp.
For performing at venues, invest in a portable PA speaker or a nice guitar amp (for guitar players).

Behringer KT-108: Buying Links & Pricing
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.
As always, with Behringer you get a great product at a great price.
