I bought the Palmer Pocket Amp Bass because it looked promising and has a headphone output -- handy for practising at home. I have been delighted to find that the Palmer offers a much greater range of sounds than my Mk1 Sansamp Bass Driver DI.
The Palmer Pocket Amp Bass sound shaping is flexible, and tube emulation is excellent, including a whole spectrum of appealing overdrive distortion. I already own a couple of tube amps (an Ashdown and a Warwick with a tube preamp), so I'm familiar with the real thing.
I own about 15 bass guitars, fretted and fretless, 4 and 5 string, some passive but mainly active, including several graphite necked headless basses from the 1980s and 90s and some boutique luthier made basses. The Palmer is effective at letting their character show through, and adjusting it in interesting ways. Plus of course, practising without waking up the neighbours -- the main reason I bought it. Recommended.

Sounds great but fiddly

Curto, 02.11.2017
The sound from this preamp is fantastic. The semi parametric EQ allows me to dial in the tone I'm seeking. It makes even a cheap bass sound boutique!
The only thing I don't like is its hard to setup. The instructions are minimum and it took a long time to find "my sound". But I found I had to tweak it even further when switching to the distorted sound, so I couldn't simply switch sounds on the fly. I would require a seperate distortion/fuzz for that.
If you want a set and forget preamp with DI out, and have patience to play around with the settings to find your own sound, then this is the pedal for you.
