1. Introduction
Congratulations! By purchasing the KT108, you have obtained a first-class
keyboard amplifier that offers you the authentic tube sound simulation in an
amazingly compact housing. The two instrument inputs and the additional
CD player input make the ULTRATONE KT108 a truly flexible practice amp that
will be tons of fun to use, no matter where or when you use it.
VTC Virtual Tube Circuitry
The VTC Virtual Tube Circuitry was specially developed to lend the keyboard
sound the unique character of classic tube amps.
Jam it up!
With its CD player input, your KT108 is the ultimate practice amp, because
it couldn’t be easier to play along to your favorite music. If you don’t want
anybody listening to what you’re playing, or simply wish to avoid disturbing
the neighbors, just use your headphones. The BEHRINGER HPS3000 is ideal
just for that.
A companion for life!
The electronic components in your ULTRATONE KT108 have been built into
a robust metal enclosure for maximum protection. The cabinet is made of
high-grade wood covered with durable vinyl. The KT108 will never let you down,
even when the going gets tough.
◊ Please read the manual carefully and keep it around for
future reference.
ATTENTION!
◊ High volume levels can damage your hearing or your headphones.
Please turn the volume control to zero (all the way to the left)
before you power up the amp. Always make sure you use appropriate
volume levels.
1.1 Before you get started
1.1.1 Shipment
Your KT108 was carefully packed at the factory, and the packaging was designed
to protect the unit from rough handling. Nevertheless, we recommend that
you carefully examine the packaging and its contents for any signs of physical
damage that may have occurred during transit.
◊ If the unit is damaged, please do NOT return it to BEHRINGER.
Instead, notify your dealer and the shipping company immediately.
Otherwise, claims for damage or replacement may not be honored.
◊ Always use the original packing carton to prevent damage during
storage or transport.
◊ Make sure that no children are left unsupervised with the KT108 or
its packaging.
◊ Please ensure proper disposal of all packing materials.
1.1.2 Initial operation
Be sure that there is enough space around the unit for cooling. To avoid
overheating, please do not place the ULTRATONE near radiators and other
equipment emanating heat.
◊ Please keep in mind that all the equipment has to be grounded at all
times. For your own protection, never change or disable the grounding
on your equipment or on the cables! The unit shall always be connected
to the mains socket outlet with a protective earthing connection.
1.1.3 Online registration

2. Wiring Tips
Figures 2.1 and 2.2 show you how to connect your keyboard to the amplifier.
If you want to use an effects unit (for example, the BEHRINGER X V-AMP)
to experiment with some out-of-the-ordinary sounds, you can connect your
keyboard directly to the input of the effects processor. Then, connect a second
cable from the effects output to the input on your keyboard amp.
Fig. 2.2 shows a recommended setup for amplifying the vintage sound of your
KT108 using a sound reinforcement system of any size. This way, you can also use
your amp for playing live or for rehearsals with your band.

Fig. 3.1: Control elements on the front panel
(1) Connect your keyboard to the INST. 1 INPUT connector, using a standard
instrument cable equipped with 1/4" TS connectors.
The second instrument input (INST. 2 INPUT) can of course be used to
connect a second keyboard or a drum computer.
(2) The volume of both instrument channels can be adjusted using the
INST. 1 VOL and INST. 2 VOL control.
(3) Use the CD INPUT to connect the output of your CD player, tape deck, CD or
MD walkman. This way you can play along to music or keyboard tutorial CDs.
This connector is a 1/4" TRS jack. If your CD player is equipped with cinch
outputs, you’ll need an adapter cable, which you can buy at your local music
shop. Illustration 4.3 in chapter 4. “Audio Connections” shows you what
kind of adapter to buy. You can also use a mono cable (fig. 4.4). This will not
damage your CD player or keyboard amp.

(4) The LOW control allows you to boost or cut the low-frequency range.
(5) With the MID control you can boost or cut the mid-range frequencies.
(6) The HIGH control adjusts the high-frequency range.
◊ With all the settings the following applies: Adjusting the tone
settings on your KT108 lets you refine the sound of your keyboard;
for example, you can add more depth to a bass sound, or you can
bring out the strings upfront by increasing the mids. Sometimes more
neutral settings are desired in order to preserve the character of the
original sound.
4. Audio Connections
All of your amp’s inputs and outputs are laid out as 1/4" connectors. More information
about the connectors can be found in chapter 5. “Specifications.”
◊ Please keep in mind that all the equipment has to be grounded at all
times. For your own protection, never change or disable the grounding
on your equipment or on the cables! The unit shall always be connected
to the mains socket outlet with a protective earthing connection.

◊ Some headphones produce distortion if the volume level is too high.
Please cut back the volume control until the distortion disappears.
(8) Use the POWER switch to switch on your KT108. The POWER switch should
be set to “Off” before you connect your keyboard amp to the mains.
◊ Please note: The POWER switch does not disconnect the unit from the
mains. Unplug the power cord when you don’t want to use the unit
for some time.
