laulec's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" wand guitarist recorder that has a tube amp"

Palmer PDI 09
always says


very effective
a nearly a 76 strat and a yamaha 540fm
in a hot rod with a Plexitone jamman delay a Rotovibe
or a head engl powerball
no defects sound faithfully transcribed ca

I have it since 2 weeks
at the beginning I said: ooh la! I just paid a dear thing which is not much.
c is actually the purpose of connecting between the head of a tube amp and hp c is that the AC is revealed! c is the rest of the wind. (preamp output .....) although ca already allows filtering tones
not. remain serious
ca is not a di box in the proper sense of the term
c is restricted to the guitar lamp
and the! ca does
if there is one sm 57 cable and the eq between two c is a super good raport value
no vibration noises!
not need to register with headphones (and ears is relevent!)
there is a choice of 3 hp and a very realistic choice
passive box so the sound remains pure
there s more fast!

HardBlues's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Palmer PDI 09
Analog technology, passive.
A jack and an output jack to connect a speaker.
On the other side the XLR output to go to the sound card or the console.
Next settings:
- An attenuator 30, 15, 0 dB
- A cursor Lift gnd, which eliminates any hum from bad ground. Handy when you land in an unfamiliar room.
- A cursor Bright, Normal, Mellow to simulate different micro investments before a cabinet.


I use it out of my SansAmp PSA-1, and only in Home Studio.
It allows me to correct the side a little rough around the edges, especially on distos from Tech21.

I use it for a few weeks.
I chose after much reading on this site, without having tried other stuff, I also bought a AFien.

What I appreciate most is that embellishes the sound without turning.
What I like least is that it does not replace a real microphone jack with a really good sound engineer for the price (60 € OCCAZ)!

mathieufrancis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Tool!"

Palmer PDI 09
HP simulator (3 possible settings)
Attenuator output -> attenuator careful not involved in the amplified signal (to be too good at this price!)

Side techno, ultra simple, robust and passive (ie without additional power supply).

Jack connectors to connect the amp head and speaker and line out XLR

In short, very simple, easy to lug around. I put 7/10, because the settings are limited but again, at this price ...

Already mentioned, it is very simple, lightweight, no need for manual but there is one that is clear.

Again, I put 8, not really customizable, but the ultra compact size allows it to take anywhere, and that's what we asked!

His side, well there is not wiggle, it's very good. Live the beast can be transplanted in the sound while keeping the sound of his amp, diffusion is the top for playing in bars or clubs that do not necessarily have real scene.

No more micro issues (investment, fall, feedback, ...).

I think there Mr Satriani who uses it and I also saw Christophe Godin play it live, is it enough to convince undecided??? In any case, it is a treat to mix, bass guitar and vocals to the console (when the same thing on a battery??).

I use it with an amp ENGL Powerball or preamp output AMT R1 (which is really a simulation of HP cardboard).

Small flat, the output level is low enough, it can eat a little home studio and dynamic, it's worth it to put a small preamp ass ... So, only 9/10!

I use this contraption for 3 years, I ordered it by chance because I could not find a good solution for the distribution of its small bar or live (no mic to dub guitar).

I love the simplicity (no need for power supply, live sound), small footprint (thank you for my back, in this world of gross or we leave the stack 50 kg it's good to see small things that sound) The sound quality and especially its unbeatable value for money.

I do not like, you can not configure much and the output level weakling.

Honestly, I do not know why there are still guys who do not have one!

SlapKid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Class, but ..."

Palmer PDI 09
passive line level or speaker, three simulation modes hp so no uncolored sound.
The level at the table is basically a microphone.
This is the kind of box that can make great service. No worries on my table that has the phantom power not triggerable, phew.

It's simple, BUT ...
line level, so no question of plugging a guitar or bass passive right in, or use a distortion pedal or one that is true bypass. Nothing is broken but the sound is coming out so super ugly.
Worse, some with non-true bypass pedals it goes not, the junction impedance is very sensitive to that injects.
I had noticed this phenomenon with the guitar harley di red, but less marked (it is active against).

I note therefore, the purpose of such a product is not to fuss especially live.

Once well-matched to the input, the sound that it is very classy, ​​and 3 variations cover all situations.
It's simple, compared to my ultra-Bebert g is as if we had removed a comforter in front of the columns ... bright mode at least.
Compared to my harley di red guitar is not as obvious, the sound is more natural anyway, less hard with palmer.

I did not notice any concern on the ground, unlike my redbox HK pro who snores when she sees a transformer in its vicinity.

So its top quality.

Ben, if I have to take that it will be the ultra-g, it is the only one that does everything well. I can be connected directly, with true bypass pedal, with or without simulated hp, from an output amplifier, noise-free signal and a hefty premium and stable. The sound is muted but fun anyway, and the price very nice.

The palmer I was disappointed by its limitations, but if you use the output of amplifier or preamp or even multi-effects it's all good.

Personally I need a di for any contingency, and that includes leaving with guitar distortion pedal and nothing more sometimes, so g is the ultra-imperial (solid and, since the time that I lug around).

The palmer is a beautiful object, I do not regret my purchase, I hope they have the same qualities with the practices of Bebert ...
