KICKER-5457 - JFET Booster & Tone Enhancer
The KICKER uses a single 2n5457 JFET (Junction Field Effect Transistor) at its heart.
This creates a colourful tone with accentuated high and low frequencies that can add clarity, sparkle and weight to your sound.
The KICK control boosts the gain of the 2n5457 JFET, adding volume, sensitivity, punch and a touch of natural compression.
The TREB and BASS 3-way toggle switches give a wide range of tones, with settings for natural, boosted or cut treble and bass responses.
There is a trim control within the KICKER which acts as a master output volume control.
I have set this at maximum for full output and volume boost. But it can be reduced to taste to allow the KICK control to be turned up higher for more sensitivity without as much volume boost.
KICK = Gain boost.
TREB = 3 position treble filter switch.
BASS = 3 position bass level switch.
ON = True bypass footswitch with ON status indicate by lit white LED.
IN = 6.35mm (1/4”) mono jack cable input.
OUT = 6.35mm (1/4”) mono jack cable output.
9V = 9V DC 2.1mm centre negative power supply input.
The current draw of the KICKER-5457 is less than 10mA.
I recommend using a good quality regulated 9V DC power supply.
LOUD = Internal master output volume trim control.
