      Oh, the KC-150. I bought this amp when it first came out about 10 or so years ago. This amp served me well for many years. It was almost always powered on, and I threw pretty much everything at it; Bass guitar, Keyboards, and even had it hooked up as a monitor to my TOA 10 channel mixer for a while when I was between monitors. This amp NEVER let me down (unlike some of the gear that I have now). I made the mistake of selling it to "upgrade", and that upgrade has, in the course of a year, turned out to be a downgrade. I will tell you that at very high volumes it loses a little quality, but if you have a home recording studio and need an amp that can be mic'd or as a general use workhorse this amp is great. Bottom line: if you take care of it, it will take care of you. Highly recommended.

      I purchased one of these Roland KC-150 units years ago, based largely on colleagues'opinions about this manufacturer. Also, the size and price seemed to fit my needs, which included home studio work and occasional performances, and my budget. However, I have to be honest; though it seemed to be the "cat's meow" out of the box, it started losing its punch and overall sound quality early on. That is, the sound became crackly with a bit of static within maybe a year of very mild use. After changing out cords and other potential culprets, I had it looked at. The verdict from the tech was, "it's simply worn out, these little guys just aren't made to last." Usually, when something goes out this quickly, you can say, "well, you get what you pay for," but I felt confident I had made a sound investment.I'm currently in the process or buying more studio equipment; I cannot swear that I will not make a second purchase from this manufacturer, but I can guaranty that it will not be this model.

          Fantastic Sound! Great product for amplifying just about anything. I run fiddle, guitar, keyboard, and mandolin through it, and all sound good. Only one microphone input is the only limitation.

          I like it like that!!

          Comments about Roland KC-150 Keyboard Combo Amp:

          I started with one of this amps when I purchased my Yamaha YPG635. It sounded fine except I was missing the stereo sound. Then after about 15 months, I bought my Roland electronic drum set and connected it also to this amp. Again, I was missing the stereo sound. So, I decided to buy the second amp and connected the drum set to both of them (the Roland has a L & a R output) and now it is great. For the keyboard, I bought an adapter (1/4" stereo male to a (L) & (R) 1/4" males, and connected one to each amp. Now all is great!!! For my use, home studio, these two amps provide enough volume at 50% input and 50% output and I can also jam with my friends (two guitars and a bass) and we do not overshadow anybody and do not blow the house and our ears away. Great amp!!!

          I use the KC-150 through my laptop, bass, drums, keyboard, and guitar and everything sounds amazing! It isn't loud enough to play live, but it will fill my whole house with sound! Very nice amp, highly recommended. Buy it now.

          Good, but has it's drawbacks......

          By Winged Wheel Watcher

          from Ann Arbor, MI

          Comments about Roland KC-150 Keyboard Combo Amp:

          I'm a drummer, but I play in a jazz quartet and our keyboard player uses this amp (along with a Yamaha S-90 Keyboard). I will say it sounds very clear and brings out the subtle tones and nuances from the keyboard. Very good sound quality! However, it is a VERY directional amp. It sounds great if it's pointed in your direction, but if you are off to the side or behind it, you can barely hear it at all. Other musicians in the audience (small club) would say they could barely hear the amp (at about 30-50 feet away) if they weren't facing it directly. As others have said, the lack of real power is a drawback. I think the lack of "spread" of this amp has a lot to do with that. We started using an extension speaker via the 1/4" direct out (a JBL powered EON) and that helps a lot with projection. Also, I have noticed a buzz coming from the 1/4" direct out when recording direct to a quality multi-track recorder. It seems to get louder the longer the amp is on. I've tried different cables from the amp and different instruments in that particular track of the recorder, but the buzz seems to be the amp itself.

          Great amp, low price

          Comments about Roland KC-150 Keyboard Combo Amp:

          I own it and have used it for years. The only bad thing is that is had a 2 band EQ. I recommend this amp be used with a computer because it isn't very loud and the XLR buzzes like heck. Other than that it is one of the best amps I have ever used. It sounds VERY nice. BUY IT RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

          Comments about Roland KC-150 Keyboard Combo Amp:

          This is a solid amp, minus a few lose screws and corner supports falling off.. nothin a little glew and screwdriver can't fix. I've owned this for 5 years and nothing has blown, everything works. I find 60 watts to not be enough for monitoring in loud rooms. It starts distorting at 75% volume.. which was barely loud enough... and obviously not clear. Its a good practice amp if you're by yourself.. but not in a room w/ a full band. I'd really like a 3 band eq. basically get the next model up. twice the watts, 3 band eq.. and can run 2 of em stereo.

          I've owned the previous model, KC-100, for 6 years- nothing has blown and all the channels work. BUT.. some screws have come lose, nothin routine maintance can't fix. But mainly- I want more headroom.. for both band practices, and for monitoring. I have to turn down the bass all the time cuz it'll start distorting at 3/4 volume, the high mids get harsh when turned up as well. Even when i use it for monitoring purposes- its not loud enough and will distort.. so i really recommend getting the KC-350.. it has twice the power, 3 band EQ, and can be doubled up for stereo applications.. so i'm lookin to get one of those.. it should be perfect for what i need. This is a good amp for personal practice, but not much headroom/bass if u wanna be in the mix w/ drums and guitars at a practice.
