N.B: This is the 4 Ohm version - i.e. this speaker simulator "looks like" an 4 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.
Get the sound of your favourite tube amp safely into a PA using this special D.I. It has an integrated resistor which "looks" like a speaker to your amp, so you can safely drive your tube amp as hard as you like and have the sound appear at a line level output for recording or live injection through a P.A.
Here's what Palmer say about the PGA04
Special DI box with loadbox for guitars. The integrated load resistor permits tube amplifiers up to approximately 120 W to be connected to the PGA04, bypassing a loudspeaker. A jack socket (unbalanced) and balanced XLR connector are available for direct pickup of the signal. The extensive filter section provides for a realistic simulation of classic guitar loudspeaker sounds.
