Sure, it can get lost behind some drums or a fat guitar! it's 45 watts-per-channel! The MAGIC of this device is in getting TWO! linked as a stereo pair ($600new) this is the most versatile, solid amp. I constantly relish in the ability of this amp to include a vocal channel, a channel for playback, a channel for keyboards and a fourth channel for whatever else you desire...all at the same time, and occupying their own frequencies... my bother has the K3000FX, and it is a MONSTER! plenty of muscle and accurate playback... i absolutely LOVE the 1800... i'm not sure why someone expects to pay $300 for an amp and expect it to be up front. Even the Roland of this magnitude has limitations... linking this to a second K1800FX is plenty of juice, and in true stereo, with the ability to literally place left/right anywhere in a room...in fact, it's easier to carry two of these together than one alone!
