  • New Amp possibly?

    Hey guys... while I continue to wait interminally long for the rest of my Vdrums to arrive (all together now -- GO HART GO HART GO HART! Maybe that will speed em up) I have been doing my research on amps. I have read all your posts regarding your recommendations, but for what I am going to be using, most of that is overkill. I am going to be getting a Roland KC-500. That said, I found an amp which no one seems to have a review for yet. Has anyone heard of the Behringer KX1200? Here is a link.

    Seems to be comparable to the KC-500, just not as quite as many watts, and the price is right. Anyone have any info good or bad here? I am going to be playing for small gigs and community theater stuff (venues which seat maybe 300-400). If I need power I would go thru the house system. So this is about what I need. I am pretty much sold on the KC-500 but is this a possibly cost-effective alternative?

    Thanks alot for your input. This forum has provided me the intellectual "Nicotine Patch" I need till my kit arrives. I continue to learn a lot.

    I have played theater gigs the size you are speaking of and I woulden't use anything smaller than a KC-500. I had the thing cranked up and it was just enough. Had to roll some low end off as well from the distortion. Worked well though, timpani sounded great!

      Thanks... that helps! Did the bass carry far enough thru the house?
