Amptweaker has released the Depthfinder, an EQ pedal that allows you to add resonance and presence to your mix.
The pedal boasts two key features: It replicates the low damping factor of a power amp section, and it boosts very low and high frequencies. These add tube-like qualities to a traditionally tight-sounding solid state amp.
Control-wise, the stompbox sports two knobs, “Resonance” and “Presence”. Each knob’s frequency range and boost was matched to a Peavey 5150 head into a vintage 30-loaded birch plywood cabinet, so the resonance matches the system. The presence also captures how the amp reacts to the inductance of the speaker.
The pedal can be easily integrated into a pedalboard’s effects loop, with its high impedance input adding clarity to the overall tone.
Retails for $90 (without power supply), $100 (with nine-volt supply), and $110 (with 18-volt supply). More information at amptweaker.com.
