Palmer Overdrive
for detailed specifications, appointments on the site of Palmer.
In summary, this is a classic overdrive enough except that it has a knob to clean, like the Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive excellent.
What is this? mixer has a signal and clear sound into overdrive. well managed, it's great!
side and cosmetic packaging: it's a personal opinion but it's still super ugly this pedal. In contrast, solid feel and reliability at all stages.


As previously stated, nothing exotic: a gain, volume and tone controls for clean.
we still have a bit of time to capture the interactions between the clean, gain and tone: for example, the tone only works on the overdrive, it has no effect on the clean and the clean prevails on the rest ...
how ca you've missed?
Basically you need to remember:
- If you put the clean thoroughly clean boost was very effective, but that will not vary with the tone
- In the case mix of clean / gain, the more clean, the fewer the tone will be effective.
- When the clean is 0, there is a classic overdrive.
- The interest is in the mixture of 2!


In comparison with the Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive it draws heavily, I would say that for 1 / 3 the price it is doing pretty good!
Well, we did not even progressive in the settings (especially between the clean and drive), and the same susceptibility to attack (especially on high gain settings) but it sounds really good.

this may be the effect all new, all beautiful, but at the rate equivalent, I prefer it to my Boss SD1, it is a bit more silky and warm, with less gain.

for now (that's not a week that I ...), I find most interesting on the clean channel on the overdrive channel, or it does not add much, if not the boot and reduces the magnitude of the drive amplifier.

Finally, although it respects the character of my various guitars (single and double coils)


it does a week so I see a notice in hindsight.
I am generally satisfied yet.
I wanted to try it because of the presence of the clean setting, to see if it could replace my sparkle drive, which is excellent in sound but not reliable at all!
qques after days of decline, I would say it does the job properly on a clean sound, not really a boost for crunch.

I will complete in time qques.
