For those just reading this thread, I thought I should update my comments above. I have since moved on to a running the piezo split into a Mackie Board and directly to a Mackie SRM350 powered speaker. Very tough and portable. I really like the sound too. I'm considering adding something to the effects loop for that board input, but currently only use the board eq.

I like the Yamaha AG stomp to warm up the piezo sound a bit.  The newer models include some inexpensive ones.

I have an early version of the Peavey Ecoustic- it has a 12" speaker and PIEZO tweeter.  It sound good with my non-piezo 12-string (see more below) and I run a POD 2.0 through it with flat eq (probably should bypass the preamp altogether) and get excellent POD tones from the full range speaker.   But piezo pickups into piezo speakers can be too harsh.  I'd avoid this particular model since the newer Ecoustics have better (non-piezo) tweeters.

I've been using a Loudbox recently, and liked it so much I just ordered a second one (both used, Ebay). Now for some stereo effects!  

I've been using a Loudbox recently, and liked it so much I just ordered a second one (both used, Ebay). Now for some stereo effects!  Plus I like the sound of my Roland VG-8 into the loudbox (I have not yet tried my PA, it is in a rats nest of gear in the basement).  Note:  I haven't tried the Parkers yet with the loudbox, I've used a Godin acousticaster, Godin ACS SA, and Brian Moore 21.13 (representng at least two if not three difefrent piezo PUps).  

I think that keyboard amps are often very inexpensive and great choices for the acoustic side. I see Peavey keyboard amps for 120 bucks on ebay.  They may even be better (in some areas) than the loudbox for the VG8.  I'd make sure that you ge these amps off the floor with an amp stand or the extra bass from keyboard (or some acoustic) amps with just go into the floor and get muddy.
