Roland revamps KC range
Roland has refreshed its KC series, the long-running line-up of stage amplifiers for performing keyboardists.
The six new KC models feature wide-range sound reproduction with two-way speaker systems and Roland’s patented twin bass-reflex design for extended low-frequency response without distortion. Roland says this makes them ideal for accurately reproducing the full frequency range of all types of keyboards, including 88-note stage pianos, organs, and synthesizers. The amps are also equipped with multiple inputs, mixing capabilities, and versatile DI connections, allowing players to connect and control all their instruments and easily interface with sound systems at different performance venues.
All 2017 KC models are equipped with newly designed speakers for improved sound quality, and the monaural models feature redesigned power amp and power supply sections for increased output power and stability. These enhancements have also reduced the overall weight of the KC-400 and KC-600 models compared to the previous-generation KC-350 and KC-550 models.
The outer appearance of the new KC amps has been refreshed as well. In addition, the input and output jacks have been changed from plastic to metal for increased durability.
The 2017 KC amplifier line-up includes six models to support the performing needs of all types of keyboard players:
KC-80—50 Watts of power, 10-inch speaker, custom tweeter
KC-200—100 Watts of power, 12-inch speaker, custom tweeter
KC-400—150 Watts of power, 12-inch speaker, custom tweeter, stereo link capability
