Surely it can't sound that good?

Cabinets, the bane of all neighbours everywhere when it comes to home studios. If you can't bring a cabinet into your home studio for whatever reason and you're on a budget, look no further.

I decided to buy this over a Two Notes Torpedo Live because it's 1/3 of the price and I don't feel I need versatility. I can EQ with the best of them and I knew that all I needed was to get a decent sound into my computer and it would do, so obviously I wasn't expecting much. Boy was I blown away.

The rack unit arrived and the very first thing that stood out was just how sturdy this thing feels and looks, always a bonus. I plugged it in and got setup, read the manual to make sure I wasn't going to blow anything up when I turned my ENGL head on and just got a lush, vibrant tone. I was floored.

With the the two 3 position switches that effect the high end and low end of the tone combined with any guitar head, you can really control the sound that comes out of this unit. It may not be as versatile as moving a mic around a cabinet but a very nice feature indeed.

All in all, if you're on a budget and just want to have some silent playing/recording, go for this. You'll probably be surprised on just how good it sounds.

Eventually, it took me three years to write this review but I wanted to be sure my review was fair. I bought the PDI-03 in 2014 and used it a lot, both live and at home.

It is essentially a 100W load box, with a speaker simulation output. This means you can use it in place of the cabinet (silent recording: the load box will take care of your amp output), or using it along with the cabinet (both the cabiner and the simulated output are active: hear from the cab but sending the signal to the main mix through the speaker sim, replacing the mic).

The PDI-03 speaker simulation output can be tweaked with 2 toggle switches, that can give you a total of 9 different sounds. All sounds are definitely useable and, depending on the amp you're using it with, produce different results. The overall quality of the cab simulation output is not stellar. But can solve many micing problems live, and generally gives the chance to the guitar player to keep the amp loud on stage and send a lower signal to the mixer through the Palmer output.

What's great about the PDI-03 is it's totally passive: no power supply is needed. It also features a direct output (unfiltered: not passing through the cab simulation) that can be used to feed an audio interface input connected to a computer and then use an impulse response to emulate the cab.
And here the Palmer really comes handy. I use it this way to record silently at home, and with a couple of IRs I get really stellar tone out of my 100W Marshall JCM800. I bypass the cabinet using the PDI-03 as a load, then connect the unfiltered output to my audio interface into Logic and use an IR to emulate the guitar cabinet.
Last but not least the filtered (simulated) and unfiltered output can be used at the same time. Actually the unfiltered output are 4, and they all work in parallel.
Both filtered and unfiltered outputs have dedicated volume pot.

As far as construction goes, it's German made device: high quality material, robust and built to last.
