Providing extensive sound shaping options for active and passive bass guitars, the Pocket Bass Amp is a multi-purpose effects pedal and preamp that‘s perfect for gigging, recording and practising. It features clean, overdrive and fuzz modes with adjustable drive and saturation, a 3-band EQ with semi-parametric mid control that is specifically tuned for bass guitar and vintage or modern cabinet simulation. A blend control allows you to mix the direct and effected signals.
The Pocket Bass Amp provides an insert for external effects, 3.5 mm stereo line input and headphones output for quiet play-along practice and a footswitch-assignable thru jack for silent tuning. Enabling DI applications, the balanced XLR output is pre or post effect switchable. The Pocket Bass Amp requires a 9 volt battery or power adapter and comes in a rugged diecast enclosure with heavy duty long-life footswitch, convenient LED status indicators and ground lift.
The Palmer MACHT 402 is a 19 stereo power amplifier specially designed for guitar applications. It pumps out 200 watts per channel and 400 watts bridged to drive virtually all speaker cabinets. Featuring a highly efficient switch mode power supply and low noise fan the soft start class D design is protected against overvoltage, DC, short circuits and overheating.
Conventionally named, the channels' Hi and Low controls have been carefully tailored for guitar signals to provide extensive EQ facility, a wide variety of sounds and authentic tube power stage characteristics. In addition, the MACHT 402 sports rumble filtering, LED indicators, a 3-way sensitivity selector, built-in limiter and ground lift switch. With XLR and 6.35 mm inputs as well as Speakon compatible and 6.35 mm output connectors the Palmer MACHT 402 is the ideal power station for guitar preamps, small amps, modelers and even effects pedals.
The MACHT 402 is unsuitable for direct connection to a guitar. Please include a preamp, modeller or an effect pedal in between."
In its new incarnation, the Palmer Pocket Amp MK 2 delivers an extended range of authentic tube amplifier tones from high headroom ultra clean to maxed out high gain distortion. With 3-position selector switches for amplifier design, gain structure and loudspeaker miking simulation the MK 2's hot rodded circuitry lets you easily configure vintage and modern sounds as well as your own while high performance op amps provide superior S/N ratio. For even more flexibility the Pocket Amp MK 2 sports master controls for drive and output level plus a 2-band EQ that has been carefully tailored for guitar applications.
Featuring a durable die cast aluminium enclosure with balanced XLR and unbalanced 6.35 mm outputs in addition to 3.5 mm AUX input and headphones jacks the Palmer Pocket Amp MK 2 is more than just the go-to tool for direct recording. It doubles as a practice amp, overdrive and distortion pedal, standard guitar DI box when bypassed and replaces your stage amp when used with a sound and monitor system. The Pocket Amp MK 2 works on a 9V battery or optional power adapter, e.g. Palmer PW9V.
Palmer EINS - Amazingly versatile!
Small 1-5W amps have become very popular in recent years. They are fun items but some seem more like toys than real amplifiers. Palmers approach with the EINS was to design a serious true tube amplifier for professional purposes. The speaker simulated output allows you to connect the output of the amp directly to your audio interface. Thanks to the integrated loadbox a speaker does not need to be connected. Thanks to the unique “HiZ output” you can connect the output of the EINS directly to the input of any amplifier! This way the EINS can be power boosted or used as a preamp or even on your pedalboard.
The Palmer EINS comes with an ECC83 preamp tube (V1) and an ECC82 (V2) power stage tube as standard. Other tube configurations are possible as follows.
- 1: V1:ECC83 - V2:ECC83: Quieter, distorts much faster, a little more gain, lead sound.
- 2: V1:ECC83 - V2:ECC81: Louder than Variation 1", quieter than the standard configuration, more gain, distorts a little more quickly.
- 3: V1:ECC81 - V2:ECC82: Stays clean a little longer, a little more headroom, darker distortion sound.
- 4: V1:ECC81 - V2:ECC83: The quietest configuration, distortion sets in a little later than with Variation "1", distortion can be controlled very precisely.
