    I know I mentioned the palmer last week but last night was first combat situation. The positives are compact, doesn't require power, very straight forward design with a bit of tweakability - all I can say is it was probably my best live sound to date (through a PA). In the past I know my on stage sound has been good - wasn't too sure what it sounded like out front - which isn't a good situation to be in. Anyway everyone commented on how great it sounded and how it really contributed to the band as a whole. I know you can get better sounds with mics and for recording I probably wouldn't use it, but in a live situation it's great. Really is.

    My rig is 3 pedals into a 20W plexi with power scaling into a 1x12".

    1...get amp on a table
    2...adjust power sclaing to suit onstage levels
    3...plug XLR from palmer into desk

    ...proceed with brief soundcheck and rock on.

    Cheers.

    I'd wager that in the live situation you couldn't tell the difference between a miced cab and the Palmer. Plus, the Palmer will lend itself to a more consistent live sound.

    Congrats! Now you've got me thinking about this :D

    Do - unless you're a big name player who's got techs and time and stuff - or perhaps just a lot more dedicated than me... - I think this is a great unit.

    The Palmer is great - I have one in the back of my '66 FDR.

    I couldn't live without mine. A great gadget that I'm surprised more people don't keep around.
