What Is a Keyboard Amp?

Keyboard amps are made to optimize the range of frequencies your keyboard works in—and you’ll need a wider frequency range with keys, especially if you’re playing more synthesized sounds.

Do Keyboards Need Amps?

Without amplification of some kind, your keyboard isn’t going to produce a sound that your audience can hear. If you plan on playing keyboards live, you need some sort of amplification solution. But what wins out in the battle between a keyboard amp vs. PA?

It might be tempting to plug your keyboard amp directly into a PA, and sometimes, this works fine. A lot of PA systems have onboard EQ controls, and if it’s just you and a keyboard at a coffee shop, that might be enough. The downside is that an entire PA system is bulkier and more costly than a keyboard amp. Additionally, a lot of the non-DIY venues you’ll play have their own PAs, and you might not have much input into your EQ when the sound person is running the board.

How Many Watts Is a Keyboard Amp?

The wattage of a keyboard amp varies by the model. More watts means you can play louder before the amp starts distorting, but it also typically means the amp will be bigger and heavier. Think about how loud you really need your amp to be when looking for a keyboard amp.
