AC-60

Acoustic Chorus Guitar Amplifier

Q.Can I use the AC-60 as a keyboard amplifier?

A.Yes, you can connect a synthesizer or other keyboard instrument to the AC-60. However, please be aware of the following points.

  1. When connecting a keyboard or other unit that has a stereo output:
    • Connect the unit to the AUX (L/R) input jacks to obtain stereo playback from the left and right speakers. The tone controls and effects (chorus, reverb, and delay) are unavailable to signals connected to the AUX (L/R) jacks.
  2. When connecting a keyboard or other unit that has a monaural output:
    • Connect the unit to the AC-60's MIC/LINE CHANNEL input, and set the SELECT button to LINE.
    • The tone controls and effects (chorus, reverb, and delay) can be used on signals connected to the MIC/LINE input.
Note:
The AC-60 is designed primarily to amplify an acoustic-electric guitar. Though it can be used as a keyboard amplifier, it may not meet the tonal requirements of all performers when used in this capacity.

If you’re interested in using the AC-60 as a keyboard amplifier, we recommend trying it out at a Roland dealer to make sure it will suit your needs. If you like the sound but want more low frequency extension, you may want to consider connecting a powered sub-woofer (such as the Roland KCW-1) to the AC-60’s SUB WOOFER OUT jack. Also, check out Roland’s KC-series amplifiers, which are designed for amplifying synthesizers and other keyboard instruments.
