    Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place. My girlfriend has a super nice Nord Piano 88 (guess who made her buy it?). We basically run it through my mixer into a cheap Samson amp into an even cheaper Peavey 12" cab. Sounds okay. Does anyone know of a really nice portable keyboard amp designed more for piano than for synths?
  2. Can't help aside from suggesting posting in *amps* or *miscelleneous*(sp? that doesn't look right... not awake yet).

    You'll want some power and a decent sized speaker to handle the low end. Roland's KC amps are pretty much industry standard although perhaps a powered PA speaker (or two) would do a good job as well.

    Not sure what to suggest, but that is one killer piano. Probably the best made right now.
  5. Hartke KM200: plenty of power, super versatile, lots of inputs and outputs. My keyboard player is using one now, as he uses two keyboards at the show and he honestly could run four through that thing.

    Both my singer and my keyboard player work at Bose and they're pushing me to get one of those L1's. They're looking into employee discounts. Damn, those things sound amazing, but you pay for it. We use one at rehearsal with the keys (both hammond and piano) and 3 vocalists running through it. We've got 2 very loud guitars, a hard hitting drummer and my Aguilar rig and that L1 stands up to all of them without a problem. Now all I have to do is raise $1000 or so.
