The pPTSD (prof Pinotte Tone Shaping Device) from GUP Tech is a brand new full-analog signal path parametric EQ, coupled with a boost unit designed to make any amp roar.
Parametric EQ have those precise shaping tools allowing you to change the curves (Q) of the EQ and also where exactly (frequencies) you're cutting/Boosting (+/- ~12dB). Ours got 3-band, Low (33-330Hz), mid (250-2.2kHZ) and High (1.1k-11kHZ). Coupled to that is a boost unit, allowing you to bring a lot of volume, even with extreme frequency chopping.
So start with everything at noon, plug that unit into your FX Loop, and see where you can go. The classic V shape is also a good start, boosting the low and high, and cutting a little bit of the mids. You can also only use the pedal as a volume boost (unity at noon) for your solos with a lot of volume boost available under the Level knob.
Power consumption : 48mA
Voltage : 9Vdc center negative only. Anything higher will fry the pedal.
Dimensions : 3.7 in x 4.7 in x 1.34 in (94 mm x 119 mm x 34 mm)
Well designed layout and features. Neutral and organic tone, quiet and good value from a cool company.
Fantastic quality stompboxes! Got the pPTSD, SUN and Do.Nut and couldn’t be happier with the products
The pPTSD works exactly how you’d expect it to and sounds great. I don’t notice any colouration of the signal from the pedal and the controls are responsive and precise.
An excellent EQ.
It’s quiet, well-built, very tweakable and the volume adjustment is really handy. I’m very happy with the pedal.
Still learning how to shape the EQ but this pedal is fantastic quality and very tweak able. The level option has been fantastic for keeping the volume down when I need to while still pushing the amps own gain.
