Behringer Ultratone KXD12 600W 4-channel Mixing Keyboard Amp

This 4 channel amp has an XLR input that works well with microphones that don't require phantom power and many musicians report using it successfully as a small PA system to sing and play through at the same time. This includes both keyboardists and singer/acoustic guitarists and it comes with Behringer's FBQ feedback detecting system to help with that application.

The KXD12 is also used by electronic drummers and even bass players because the 12" woofer handles low frequency transients quite well while still retaining the sparkle at the high-end due to being bi-amped and having a 1" tweeter.

Pros

The KXD12 has been well received by keyboard players, electronic drummers and duos and trios that use it as a small PA. There are even some acoustic guitarists who prefer the sound of this amp over their dedicated acoustic amp. Those who used two of these with the Stereo Link were generally quite impressed with the results.

Cons

One drawback is that the 7-band EQ is applied to all channels rather than giving you the option to select which channels to apply it to, but this is common with keyboard amps. There are a few people who have complained that the power rating is not RMS saying that it sounds about as loud as a Roland amp rated at under 200 watts.

Overall

In addition to being a highly rated keyboard amp, the KXD12 has found a place as a small PA and as an amp for electronic drums.
