I'm looking for the amp mentioned in the title.

One person suggested a Roland kc110.

Any other suggestions? Comments on the Roland?

Hey prahas.

Most any keyboardist I have ever worked with has used a Roland amp of some sort. I can't say I am fluent with keyboard gear myself, but I have noticed that trend for keyboards that do use their own amp, as opposed to running directly into the PA.

That may not help, I have no other suggestions, but it would seem based on historical evidence, that the one already suggested would most certainly be worth a look.

Yeah, the Roland amps are generally pretty suitable for keys. And they have some stereo amps if you need that. For battery powered, I think the MicroCUBE amps can use batteries? But they're smaller, and I don't know how much power you need. The KC110 will probably do the trick, though.

Any amp that offers a full frequency range should be good for keys. I have a 3 channel Carvin Acoustic Guitar amp (AG100D) 100W, but it's not battery powered. Has a bass, guitar, and line-in channel. But it is mono.

For practicing, and road trips, I have the Blackstar Fly3 amp pair. It is battery powered, and with both speakers, you get 6W, and they can put out a fair amount of volume. They're pretty cheap, too. Might be usable as a personal monitoring setup. I haven't tried it that way, though.

When I'm at the basement Jam session, I run my Nord into a G3X pedal, and that goes into basement PA. With another guy I play with, I use his little Vox amp.
