I know this has been discussed before.

Does anybody use keyboard amps? For small jobs ie:
Supper clubs
Parties of 75 people or less

If you do, please give me your suggestions? If not a KB amp then what do you use ... Thanks

I use a Peavey KBa50 keyboard amp for stage monitoring. It has a mic in/out, 10" wizzer and I could use it for small groups, but haven't had the need to yet. If I was doing that, I'd probably step up to something a little larger with a 12" speaker for better distribution and bass. If you're using powered speakers, just cut down to one.

I sometimes use my Carlsbora colt 65w combo amp for small appearances and it works very well.

I've been completely happy with my Motion Sound KP-200s for medium-size gigs. It takes the place of a PA and provides full stereo sound. Some gigs I do require even less sound reinforement and for those jobs I use powered JOB EON10 G2's. For outdoor gigs I use the KP-200s as my stage monitor and the EON10's plus EON subs so I have a fully scalable system. Most gigs I just use the KP-200s though.

If you sing and play, www.barbetta.com and look at the Sona 32C.

Good Luck,

Gary

For small venues I really love the smaller Motion Sound KP100S:

Terrific stereo sound from a compact lightweight one piece stereo unit. For larger venues, I utilize a pair of Electro-Voice EV-SxA100's.

The Carvin AG100d amp has three channels with an Alexis digital reverb, 100 watts a 12" speaker and it sounds great at $475 and that includes delivery. It only has the 10 day trial period which they encourage you to take advantage of.

I tried it last year and sent it back because I wanted a two speaker stereo system. I'm sorry I didn't keep it and I will get another as soon as my finances allow.
