Palmer PDI-09 Passive DI for Guitar with Speaker Emulation

Written by

Ollie Mason

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".
