50 watts all tube for this price?

Noel.j, 30.07.2014
I was looking for a tube amp or even a modeling amp, that can reproduce tube sound. I've tested a Vox Tonelab EX, a Marshall Haze, a Marshall JVM410H/210C and an ENGL Ritchie Blackmore Signature. The guitar i'm using is a Hagstrom Viking.


1. The sound:
Good job, Palmer! A warm clean tone, with the gain boost a really british tone, a bit like a JTM-45. The drive channel is very creamy, but fat, but without enhancing a certain frequency. The gain boost gives you in this channel a very good, nuanced Hi-Gain tone.
2. The handling:
Good, that there is a foot switch. It can operate with the important features, like the gain boost, channel, reverb and the second master. I'm afraid there is no foot switch for the "bright"-switch on the amp.
The equalizer is working very accurate. Just a bit strange is the solution for the second master volume. On the back panel there is a little pot to turn down the "normal", front panel master volume. If you connect the foot switch, this pot is activated and your sound is more quiet. If you press now the "Volume" switch on your foot switch, your normal, loud volume is on. The solution is strange, but in practice it's easier than i thought it is.
3. The features:
The necessary things are there: 2 (4) channels, a spring reverb, a second master volume, a tube-driven FX-Loop (parallel-serial). I don't need to say more, thats all i need.
4. The quality: Everything is very good. I just had a little crack in the tolex, but thats not the fault of palmer or thomann, that was a fault of the transport service (DHL)
Only the pot for adjusting the FX-Loop is scratching a bit, but i don't think that is a problem, because you use this pot very rarely.

All in one: A really good sounding tube amp, which is cheap and assembled in Germany. I would buy it once again if i needed to. This amp is awesome, so buy it, i don't think theres something better for this money.

Egg laying wool milk

AxelH, 28.07.2011
Where was the Fred, who designed this amplifier, the last 40 years? The name Fat (Fat) deserves This amplifier rightly. 2 channels that can do everything you can imagine. A sound control that deserves your name. With this all-round equipment, for the gift price .........! The only drawback from my point of view, why no standby light ???? Or you do not work with me! An amplifier of the absolute Soooonderklasse.

Supplement!
After 10 months, the amplifier is in my hands ...! The Fat 50 responds neatly to the volume potentiometer. At the sound control you need to turn everything to 12 clock, and finished. Enough reserves for more or less highs / mids / bass are always present. The volume is at half-up, actually a method of torture.

The channels are super-tuned, from radio to Heavey Metal everything is in the basic setting (all controls at 12 o'clock) on beat / pedal. The reverb is very sensitive. The second volume works .., but I do not use you. All in all, I am absolutely satisfied.

A word to the service of Palmer. Had to start a small problem ..! Service is not just service, but at Palmer it is also service. Immediate response ......, pick up ......, repair and schwups again there !!!!!

I can still recommend this amplifier to anyone! And the price goes from my point of view, more than fine.
