Palmer Drei

Amp Head for Guitar

Single ended circuits are as old as tube technology itself and certainly nothing new. The design of the Palmer DREI lifts this tried and true concept to the next level by housing 3 single ended power amplifiers in a single device - which means 3x 5 W, so three times the output power of a normal circuit. But the highlight has yet to come: each power amplifier can be fitted with various tubes, making it possible with the Palmer DREI to combine as desired three different amp sounds.

  • Power: 5/10 W
  • 3 Channels
  • Very direct playing feel, with a strong sense of interaction
  • Clean design with relatively few components and a direct signal path
  • Pure and "natural" distortions
  • 3 Single ended power amplifiers, which can be operated simultaneously with different tubes
  • Power tubes: One: EL84 / 6BQ5, Two: 6V6S, Three: 6L6GC
  • Preamp controls: Normal saturation, treble saturation, tone (tone controls)
  • 1 Volume control for each of the 3 amplifiers
  • Preamp tubes: ECC83 / 12AX7 (hand-selected)
  • Connections: 1 Input jack, 1 each per 4/8/16 ohm jack output
  • Dimensions (H x W x L): 220 x 250 x 400 mm
  • Weight: 15 kg

Plamer Drei first impressions

John9223, 27.01.2015
Great sounding,versatile and cool looking amp.
Its a great sounding class A type amp but has the output tubes for 3 different "styles" of amp. There are some great internet reviews of this amp which describe it well. When played at home rather than on-line the sound is sublime and surpasses what comes out of a computer speaker. There is plenty of breadth and depth to the tones that you can achieve and I am so far only scratching the surface. The winning formula here is all the sounds are great.

The controls are nicely linear so there is no all or nothing effect you can really find different sweet spots as one tone blooms into another. This goes across the board here

I love the way it looks. Clearly this is quite subjective. I was not keen initially from pictures I saw. In reality it looks beautiful in an anti-hero, utilitarian, functional, military style. It is large, very heavy, solid and purposeful. It contrasts to other more "pretty" amp heads out there in appearance.

I have fallen in love with it as a piece of equipment. Congratulations to the team at Palmer. Form and function - a winning combination.

Simple, but versatile pedal platform

VanHeGen, 29.04.2015
I was looking for a good pedal platform amp, to be used at home. Based on the specs and the few reviews out there I pulled the trigger.
This amp has great cleans, as well as near breakup sounds. Since it has three different power tubes that can be mixed, you can get a variety of sounds from it. I use mostly 6L6 with some El84 with my overdrive pedals.
The amp is built like a tank (and looks like one :-)) and has a very handy hatch in the back, making it easy to change power tubes if needed.
After having used it for two days I am very happy with it!
