Versatile electric guitar preamplifier

MMihai3, 15.02.2016
This box is ideal for taking the most established electric guitar sounds available everywhere you go. It is well suited for studio recording and rehearsing, since it also emulates cabinet microphone capturing.

* Build *
Solid 10 x 10 cm aluminum box, no loose parts. Its controls rotate smoothly and its switches are snappy. The foot switch is strong with good feedback. I have not used the power input and the XLR output. The jack connectors are just good: neither loose, nor too resisting. Overall, the box offers the impression of rugged quality.

* Features *
Very easy to handle. No on/off switch. When fitted with a 9v battery it starts up when the input jack is connected.

In terms of distortion, the Pocket Amp offers the three most used classes of effects: the vintage clean to smooth overdrive, the British-style emphasized-mids heavy or "lead" sound and the high-gain bassy treble modern metal distortion. Three levels of distortion can be picked using the "Mode" selector. Separate gain control.

The two band equalizer controls (for bass and treble) and a choice of three filters which emulate cabinet microphone recording offer an authentic and complete guitar sound. The sound processing can be completely bypassed using the foot switch.

* Minuses: the microphone emulation cannot be disabled, making it impossible to just get the distortion signal out.

* Sound *
The distortion effects are, as far as I can tell, quite pure and accurate. In comparison with other effects I have used, they don't have emphasized bass or highs by themselves. The EQ is powerful and it really makes a difference. I rarely encountered little noise, at high gains and volume.

* Minus: The lack of a mid EQ band control may be limiting.

Update: after not much use, the switches and pots became noisy and the switches sometimes stop in inconsistent states (where a slight touch change the tone, you are not sure what is actually selected)

Small and sounds awsome!

21.05.2016
I use it as a backup for my guitar amp, but I'm thinking about leaving the amp and only using the Palmer from now on. It doesn't have a lot of options, but it is good, at everything it does.

The unit is built like a tank. Very nice and sturdy aluminium housing, good quality knobs and switches. All connectors are also first class. I love, that it has a headphone out, makes it a perfect bedroom amp.

The sound it produces is amazing. And it goes from crystal clear to crunch to cranked fullstack.

The only downside for me is that it doesn't run from phantom power over the xlr. Otherwise it is perfect.
