Great piece of gear

Duke Y. CHOI, 18.05.2015
This bad boy really sucks all energy originated and produced
from any power amplifier without any problem. Sometimes
those attenuators in the market would seriously do harm to
the output transformer as well as tubes installed for generating
power output in your amplifiers.But, this thing do the job well.
No more worry about any prospective injury to the tubes and
transformer outer side power amplifications.Thanks to Palmer

Moche but terribly efficient: Du Palmer what.

Pistache, 25.11.2014
If you want to use a Palmer PGA-05 directly behind an amp, this is the loadbox essential.

Being in an apartment, it was impossible for me to use / record my amp without causing a cable to my neighbors.
So I got a Palmer PGA05. Not equipped with loadbox, I would record directly to the ass of the preamp (ENGL E530). Only, voila, the sound was not transcendent (drone and screaming).
So I decided to test the loadbox by Palmer which would allow me to use my power amp (Marshall El84, which I like so much) in addition to my preamp and so get as close as possible to my configuration scene classic .

Preamp-> Poweramp -> [HP cable] -> PGA05 -> [HP cable] -> PLB2X8

And the difference is there: I really could find the sound of my amp.
What is absolutely great is that I can record my config directly on my sound card, with the headphones, just as a keyboard.
The sound is close, very close even. I will not say identical, less dynamics surely, but substantially the same. I defy anyone to differentiate a microphone jack from a Palmer plug after a good equalization;)
Now I make my models with the helmet, the big burning rack next door, and my neighbors when they have to think I'm dead. All's well That ends well !

Negative point :
- The finish ... the guys, the finish.
- The LEDs only light up from a certain power. Since I use a Marshall EL84 (2x20W), the LEDs do not light up when I bury.
Positive :
- Baah the rest!
- Picks "Palmer" as a gift with the PLB2X8, I know it is con but it's fun!

For the small anecdote:
This product was not in the Thomann catalog. Being a follower of the site, I sent a mail to ask if it was possible to provide this product. The same day I had an answer with a price and a delivery time. A few days later, the PLB2X8 was on the catalog.
Thomann at the top as usual!
