Finhol Kickbox Mark III

Stomp BoxThe Kick Box Mark III is the first digital stomp box. All previous stomp boxes work with either a built-in microphone, or a built-in pickup system. The drawbacks of this analog technology are obvious: on the one hand, these devices are very feedback-prone, on the other, one needs a powerful amplifier system which can handle the deep indifferent "Bloppton.

With the Kick Box Mark II, there is no feedback, the real samples always sound good even via small acoustic guitar amplifiers.

Another advantage lies in the choice of 2 sounds, which was not possible with previous stomp boxes. Switching between the two sounds is achieved by means of a small toggle switch on the front of the Kick Box Mark II.

In addition, the Kick Box® Mark III has an extra input for guitar, one can use this opportunity to mix both signals. Many guitarists use small acoustic guitar amplifiers which usually have only 2 inputs for guitar and microphone, for this application the Kick Box Mark III is perfect.

  • Mark III version with a powerful and realistic bass drum- and sonorous cajon sound
  • Sounds can be selected via toggle switches
  • Mark III version has the possibility to loop up the guitar via the 6.3 mm input jack and feed a mixed signal from the kick box and guitar into just one amplifier input
  • Ideal for acoustic or bass amps with limited connectivity
  • Control via sensor and microprocessor
  • Real sample Play
  • Velocity dynamic with a dynamic range of 5.46 dB

  • Suitable for PA systems, guitar amplifiers (acoustic or bass) etc.

Good but

Shane M., 06.07.2016
I am a Pub, small club performer and do both gigs on my own and in duets and trios. I bought this little box to add a bit of bass drum to my performances. This is a nice little bit of kit providing a very good Bass drum and Cahjon sound. The sounds are switched via a little switch at the back. The unit can be powered by Battery(9v) or by a power supply which you will have to buy separately.

From a performance stand point this unit is really easy to set up you simply plug a guitar cable into the output and straight into your amp or powered speakers and you are ready to go. very simple.

The only issue I had with this box was that because you are hitting it with your foot if like me you are gigging all the time it can break down, well mine did anyway, twice. Maybe I was hitting it too hard with my foot and if you have a lighter touch this may not be a problem for you. If you are worried about this I would consider the Finhol Laser Pro as you don't physically have to touch the unit to get the sounds to trigger.

Other then that its a good piece of kit and is definitely an enhancement to any little acoustic outfit.

Great sounding stomp-box, poor build quality.

19.08.2016
I bought this last year and have been gigging with it since. The bass sound produced is fantastic and the pedal itself is really responsive. It's perhaps a little tough on the leg if you're playing a long set, but I didn't notice too much.

The real downfall here is the power connection. At first it worked perfectly and I used the DC cable most of the time but occasionally the battery power as well. Then about one year after I got it, the pedal started making strange noises and not being responsive. Surprising because I'd always taken care of it when travelling and made sure it was packed properly in it's own case.

After doing a few tests I concluded that the power supply was the problem. I managed to fix the connectors for a short while but then the pedal stopped producing any sound whatsoever, even with the battery power. I've tried contacting Finhol about this but they haven't responded at all.

I've now replaced the product with a passive equivalent, to skip the issue altogether. I'd suggest you do the same.
