This is part of the revamped range of keyboard amps Roland released in late 2017, and although the new range was at first slow in gaining traction in the market, the KC-200 is now getting strong reviews and its improved ratings mean that we are happy to recommend it.

In addition to a dynamic mic input for using it as a small PA, it also has a Sub Out jack which allows you to connect it to a powered subwoofer for increased bottom end if its 12" woofer isn't enough for you.

It is suitable for use as a practice amp but has enough power to be used on stage as a monitor or your main amp at small to medium venues.

Pros

It gets good reviews from a range of musicians using it for keyboards from practicing to small venues as well as other musicians who using the mic input for vocals and other instruments such as saxophone.

Cons
