Very Impressed

23.09.2016
I was very impressed with this stompbox. I have used many acoustic ones over the years and this was my first time using a digital one.
I love the fact that there are different percussive instrument options which makes it very versatile and means that you can change it up while gigging.
The quality of sound out of each of the options is very good, and sounds very authentic!
It is small, light and easy to use so it is perfect for gigging, it doesn't add anything to the gear you need to bring but it can add a whole lot to your sound especially if you have an acoustic sound. I have used this gigging as a soloist with just an acoustic guitar and also as part of a two-piece where we use an acoustic guitar and a piano, and for live performances this can add just that extra little touch!

Competition for finhol, but loop input is distorted

Peter289, 18.05.2016
I have a long time the Finhol Kickbox Mark III, unfortunately still the first version without power supply connection, which I miss very much, as the battery without warning early adopts.
Now I have seen in a guitar magazine the Ortega Horse Kick Pro Stkomp box and ordered immediately.
Ortega has copied well at Finhol, even the size is the same, but Ortega has significantly more features at almost the same price. In addition to the Cajon Bass and Kick Drum, Ortega offers the 3 other sounds Cowbell, Cabasa and Tambourine. Of the selection one can argue naturally. I'd like to have snare, hi-hat and rimshot. But the 3 sounds are still an enrichment. In addition, Ortega offers a volume control. Then you are not so dependent on the volume control of the guitar.

The response is the same for Finhol and Ortega (bad). You have to hit the center point exactly to get the maximum volume. As you blindly tap, this is, of course, a certain game of luck and restricts the dynamic possibility you have. Soft soles okder socks do not go at all. You need shoes with hard soles.

The Cajon sounds better at Finhol than at Ortega. At Ortega it sounds booming and is much louder than the other 4 sounds, which also requires a grip on the volume control when switching on this sound. This is a total weakness on the stage where bending is difficult.

The kick drum sounds similar to both. That is taste. Then Finhol gives me a better look.

The cowbell is good. I would not have thought that it fits well with so many songs.

The same applies to the Cabasa.

The tambourine sounds a bit thin but is still ok.

My conclusion:
I keep my Finhol Kickbox and play with the left foot on the 1 Cajon or kick drum.
Likewise, I keep Ortega Horse Kick Pro and play with the right foot with the refrain on the 2 Cowbell, Cabasa or Tambourine. (So ??far I have a tambourine screwed vertically on a board with a foot machine, which of course was bulky to transport.)

This makes a lot of fun despite the aforementioned shortcomings and enriches my appearance immensely. Who does not see me on the stage, thinks it would play a drummer.

Since I play in a 2-channel acoustic amplifier, I use the two loop inputs of the Stompboxen. This is great, even the sound setting including reverb and chorus for the guitar fits. Even over the 10 inch woofer of the acoustic amplifier sound Cajon and Kickdrum already massive, even more over my large 12 inch boxes.

With the great sound selection, you even take the bend for almost every song to change the sounds.


Update of the evaluation in December 2016:

The response at Finhol is better. The sensitive area is larger, at Ortega it is only the point in the middle.

I have only now determined that the looped instrument is distorted. Decreasing the gain and increasing the master volume at the amp does not matter because the distortions in the Ortega Horse Kick Pro are generated. I have complained to Thomann and received a new copy. However, this shows the same behavior, not a single case, but a fundamental problem. The volume of the instrument should be extremely reduced so that there is no distortion. Then, of course, also the volume of the Horse Kick Pro must be reduced in the same proportion, whereby the amp almost nothing more important and its power reserves are.

Conclusion: If you do not need the loop input, you can buy the part confidently, but whoever needs it should refrain from it.
