SKU: PDI03-2

    Product Description

    N.B: This is the 2 Ohm version - i.e. this speaker simulator "looks like" an 2 Ohm Speaker Cab to your amp, but instead of channeling the sound through speakers, you can safely direct it to a line output for recording or direct injection to a P.A. system.

    This multi-purpose box will prove to be a godsend for guitarists and studio engineers everywhere! Its main function is as a speaker simulator and dummy load for guitar amps, but it can also function as a signal splitter AND D.I. Box, all in a 1U rack unit!

    Anyone who knows Palmer knows they only put the best-designed circuits in their boxes, so with each function you are getting top quality sound without any compromises. When you consider the cost of individual, professional-quality units that do the three main things that the PDI-03 does, you'll see that this really is an amazing utility piece that every engineer would find useful in the studio, and any session guitarist would do well to take on the road with him or her.

    The dummy load the PDI-03 presents means you can connect your valve amplifer to it and safely crank up the volume and record those sweet, high-gain valve tones via the Palmer's line out without the need for a speaker cab, without damaging your amp, and without destroying your hearing! With Joe Bonamassa amongst Palmer's fans, you know that it's right!

    Guitarist Magazine Review

    • "We like: Ease of use; sound; rack-mountable"
    • "We dislike: No volume attenuation is available for a connected speaker"
    • "If you need to record electric guitar at levels that won't disturb the neighbours, or you simply don't have the facilities to mic up a cabinet, the PDI-03 will provide all you need to get your favourite amp sounds recorded with a sound that closely resembles a mic'd cab. A practical solution to a perennial problem."

    Here's what Palmer say about the PDI03

    The PDI03 Palmer speaker simulator combines load impedance, a signal splitter and DI box especially designed for guitars. All functions are optimised for live and recording applications.

    Instead of being connected to a loudspeaker, the PDI03 is connected directly to the amplifier output. The signal is no longer picked up by a microphone, but after passing through a special filter section is fed directly into a mixing console, tape recorder, etc. This permits power amplifiers to be operated to saturation without troublesome volume problems.

    Two switches select between the 9 filter presets simulating various types of speakers and enclosures. Open back 2 x 12'' combo or 4 x 12'' cabinet characteristics and the punch of a full-out stack with a graphic EQ ''V'' setting can be selected as well as ''American'' or ''British'' speakers and ultra brightness.

    Four paralleled unfiltered outputs are available for further processing. Both filter and line out level are adjustable.

    For live monitoring, speakers may be connected while the reactive load is automatically switched off. Power handling capacity is 100W RMS without speakers.
