    Product Description

    The PDI09 DI Box for guitar simply does what all guitarists have wanted since guitar amps began: it takes the speaker output and splits it, sending the powered load back to the speaker cab (or a dummy load) and whisks the rest of the signal through Palmer's fabled speaker emulation filters and to a balanced XLR output read to go to front of house or a mixing desk!

    Perfect for vintage amps or smaller combos that don't have a dedicated line out, though remember the load from a valve amp HAS to stop somewhere, either a speaker or a dummy load. You cannot just plug a valve power output into the PDI09 without connecting anything to the 'thru'.

    take all of the hassle out of micing up your vintage amp on-stage and get consistant reliable sound that isn't going to stop when your over-eager lead singer kicks over the microphone infront of your cab!

    Suggested Settings

    • 15W amp -> no Attenuation
    • 50W amp -> 15db Attenuation
    • 100W Amp -> 30db Attenuation
    • Classic British tone -> Filter Switch to Bright
    • Classic American tone -> Filter Switch to Mellow

    Here's what Palmer say about the PDI-09 DI for Guitar

    The PDI09 can be connected between an effect device or amplifier and the mixing console. The PDI09 is not suitable for direct connection to a guitar. Integrated filter circuits simulate the authentic "speaker" sound. Tone can be varied between "Mellow", "Normal", or "Bright".

    Does what it st on the tin

    Trusted Customer9th Jun 2014

    As advised on the phone by the guys instore, this is a great unit. Used in the studio with my orange th30 on the normal setting, and did a great job without the need to spend ages finding the sweet spot to mic the cab. Definitely recommended!

    Trusted Customer17th Mar 2014

    It's got a good sound but using it powered just by effects pedals(rather than in the speaker line) , as per recommended on the Palmer website there is a massive drop in signal level, so maybe an active unit would be better for that purpose.

    Trusted Customer15th Jan 2014

    Great product, used it immediately for recording and live sound. The guitarist using it said it was the best sound he'd ever had from the preamp of his combo.

    Trusted Customer28th Dec 2013

    Great product. Simple controls make it very easy to get great results quickly.
