      Light and loud, great sound.

      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 Kick12.


      The Kick12 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 Kick12, 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 12" 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 Kick12 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 Kick12 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.

                There is no way this thing is 400 watts. My Harkte KM 15 blows this thing away and it is listed at only 200 watts.The Alto may be lighter than the Harkte but after that it's junk

                Comments about Alto Kick12 400W Instrument Amplifier/PA:

                This amp is not a real 400 Watts of power might be 100 max the 60 watt Roland Cube is just as loud. Do not expect it to blow the doors off. However, it has plenty volume for small venues like coffee shops or a small lounge where you are background music and people are eating and visiting. With four separate inputs for a mic and instruments or whatever it is perfect for a single solo act in small intimate situations.

                Comments about Alto Kick12 400W Instrument Amplifier/PA:

                I thought I'd try the new Alto Kick12 mixer/amp/speaker for small coffeehouse gigs. It arrived today and I have to say that I am very impressed with both the build quality, design and sound of this thing.

                It has decent power, a 4-channel mixer plus one extra AUX input, Alesis digital effects, tilt-back stand and more. For the price, it's a really nice all-in-one unit for guys like me who just do small acoustic gigs once in a while.

                I do find so far that the advertised "400-watts" is completely bogus. It comes close to my old Fishman Loudbox 100, but with much fuller sound. But 400 watts? No way. Also, the lack of a digital display and extremely small numbers for effects patches makes it difficult to see what patch you are using.

                    Comments about Alto Kick12 400W Instrument Amplifier/PA:

                    I am a guitar player who has been playing for over 40 years. I have owned many amps, both lead and bass. The last dozen years, I have played guitar floor processors such as the Boss GT-100 directly through pa systems on stage as well as in band practice. This allows for maximum volume with very low hiss. About a year ago I decided to retire from playing out and with that decision sold my 10 cabinet mega-watt pa system as well. I have been since searching for a portable system that would allow me to jam along with backing tracks, etc. When I saw the Alto Kick-12, I felt this would be perfect.

                    Plugged it in, inserted my electric guitar and drum machine and it blew me away. The amp sounds amazing. The bass for a 12" speaker is deep and kickin, the mids are great and the highs are well balanced. The entire sound is very musical and not tiring to the ears. The volume is more than enough for my needs (I practice very loud) with not a hint on distortion and very low hiss. The 4 inputs allow me to jam with a friend or insert a mic, keyboard etc. The salesperson at Guitar Center highly recommended Alto products and he was right. The cloth covering makes the unit look 1st class. I have no need for the effects so I won't comment on them but I give the unit an A+ as it meets my expectations.
