The flagship keyboard amplifier from Roland - serious 320-watt power
The Roland KC-880 sits at the top of Roland's renowned KC keyboard amplifier line, with its blistering 320 watts of power via two 12" woofers and two horn tweeters. Just as with all of Roland's KC amplifiers, the KC-880 sounds excellent - and extras such as onboard DSP effects give way for sweetening its powerhouse sound. A 3-band low/middle/high equalizer is also onboard.

Onboard DSP effects, including reverb, chorus, tremolo, and rotary
Not only does the Roland KC-880 pack 320 watts of power, it also features Roland DSP effects, making it an even more flexible onstage tool. On each of its four channels, you can turn the master effects on or off. Available effects include Reverb, Chorus, Tremolo, and Rotary. There's also a speed control for the rotary effect. A footswitch jack is available for controlling the effects remotely.

Four channels of I/O with stereo line inputs on each channel
The KC-880 is designed for professional keyboard amplification needs - and it's also loaded with four channels, so you can connect up plenty of gear at one time. On each of its four channels, there are stereo (L/Mono, R) line inputs. And, on the first channel you can connect an XLR microphone - or a line or stereo instrument. Apart from its four main channels, the KC-880 sports other essential connections for serious stage needs. It features three Aux In/Monitor In inputs, with stereo 1/4" connectors on the first, stereo RCA connectors on the second, and a stereo 1/8" connector on the third.

Need more power? Link two KC-880s together in stereo
While the KC-880 has a tremendous amount of power on its own, for the most demanding live sound applications, you can link use its stereo link feature to connect it to another 320-watt KC-880.

Line outputs and headphone jack
For outputs, you have your choice of XLR balanced outputs or 1/4" unbalanced outputs. A 1/4" headphone jack is also onboard.

Casters included for easier transport
The KC-880 is an incredibly powerful keyboard amplifier - and with its 97 lb. weight and rugged handles, it's still manageable to bring out on tour. Roland also gave the KC-880 four casters, to make treks across the stage and into position much easier.

Wow!

Finally! I've had so many different rigs, I think this one is a keeper (as long as my back holds out). The only negative is the weight at 97lbs but it does have wheels and the weight is directly related to the build quality and quality of sound. I've been using so many different rigs - even the QSC K10 and others, but their application is different and there's no substitute for this stout build and heavy magnates in these speakers. I had a KC550 and loved it when it was played through softly. But overall, I couldn't control the bottom end with that 15" woofer. The KC-880 solves this. It's deceptively large but rather good looking for black and blue furry box. I think you'll love it since I suspect it will sound good with anything. I'm playing a Yamaha s90xs through it. Enjoy!

Awesome sound!

I needed something powerful, yet providing true stereo reproduction of my many sampled DAW sounds. As a keyboardist, I've tried just about every kind and type of amp designed for keys over the years. I mean screaming keys! Gutsy organs. Cutting clavs. Wailing synths. This amp puts it all out there. Nice and clean from the controls to the in your face sound. Also, for the discerning modern synthesist, I'm impressed with all the little features, no nonsense tone controls...one knob multi-effects...direct sound inputs for my iphone/ipad...separate control headphone bus...AND...it's STEREO. So, that Rhodes vibrato sound from the original Fender Rhodes suitcase you've been trying to get? Well...I waited a long time to get this baby and I have to say that it is very well built, designed for serious music creators and players of all kinds...from harp to skins and every keyboard in between. I'm solidly sold on the sound this Roland keyboard amp line puts out!

This amp help makes my Roland TD 25KV sounds like it's out of this world!what an awesome roland product!

I played a few, different manufacturer keyboard amps in the market but this one, KC-880 stood out amongst others. It's really loud! I could hear highs middles and lows distinctively depending on set up of volume control. It's a superb match for my Roland TD25KV.

The mothership of all amps

I've used Bose, Peavey, Marshall, Strawberry Blonde, Crate, Mackie, Behringer, Fishman, Fender and almost every other amp made. I thought most of them really sounded great. Then I plugged this beast in and I found out what you don't "hear" can hurt you. This amp makes a 100 dollar instrument sound like a million dollar instrument. Imagine what it did for my thousands of dollar gear. (Taylor, Martin, Deering, Stelling, Collings, Nord) Yes, it's very heavy but you get what you work for. In this case it well outperforms all amps in its price range and many well outside the price range. If you need an amp, buy a dolly and buy this amp. You'll not regret it. I expect I'll be buying a couple more once the band gets a listen to it at the gig tomorrow night.
