Product Description

The PDI03 Palmer speaker simulator combines load impedance, a signal splitter and DI box especially designed for guitars. All functions are optimised for live and recording applications.

Instead of being connected to a loudspeaker, the PDI03 is connected directly to the amplifier output. The signal is no longer picked up by a microphone, but after passing through a special filter section is fed directly into a mixing console, tape recorder, etc. This permits power amplifiers to be operated to saturation without troublesome volume problems.

Two switches select between the 9 filter presets simulating various types of speakers and enclosures. Open back 2 x 12'' combo or 4 x 12'' cabinet characteristics and the punch of a full-out stack with a graphic EQ V setting can be selected as well as American or British speakers and ultra brightness.

Four paralleled unfiltered outputs are available for further processing. Both filter and line out level are adjustable.

For live monitoring, speakers may be connected while the reactive load is automatically switched off. Power handling capacity is 100W RMS without speakers.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
The Palmer Speaker Simulator has its place in my arsenal. I use this for live gigs. I have two of them. Each having a different ohm rating. Since we yse in ears in the vand I play in, there's virtually no sound generated onstage except for the drums. The Palmer is so close to the celestion speaker sound that I asked the singer to pick out which channel the palmer was on and which channel was I using a 12" celestion. No one could identify one from the other. I even like it better than the Two Notes Torpedo Live. This seems more natural sounding and requires no power. The extra line outs are great if youre feeding rack effects. Tgeyre unfiltered, so theyre very trebly. For a wet/dry/wet rig, they'll be usable by sending the effect outs to regukar power amps and cabs if thats your thing. Great product. Load box on this thing works great. No weird detents like some load boxes. Rock out at midnite in your home. No complaints from neighbors. You'll understand why Alex Lifeson uses them.
