Versatility

The KC-880 is Roland’s most powerful and versatile keyboard amp. Keyboards are only half of the story, however, as the KC-880 can handle an entire band in true stereo. Plug in a V-Piano, a set of V-Drums, a VB-99 V-Bass, a microphone, a guitar or a rhythm machine, even an iPod. The KC-880’s full-range stereo design makes any instrument sound big and rich.

Stereo FX

The combination of the KC-880’s stereo speakers and effects fill the room with deep, spatial sound. With stereo-chorus technology derived from Roland’s world-famous JC-series amps, it provides unmatched depth and stereo imaging. In addition to stereo chorus, the KC-880 also provides tremolo and rotary effects for keyboards, and a lush stereo reverb for vocals and other instruments.

Flexible I/O

With true stereo performance, the KC-880 is a dream for keyboards, vocals, and beyond. XLR inputs are provided for microphones, so vocalists can sing along with the band. Guitars, drum machines, and other electronic musical instruments can be plugged in as well. Connect and jam with 320 watts of pure, clean power.

Stereo Link

The Stereo Link feature allows multiple KC amps to be linked together for use as portable PA system — great for small-to-medium club gigs, churches, recitals, etc.
