So I took a flying leap on this piece of gear last week. I wanted something I could use that was portable, passive, sounded as good as a mic, and that still let me use the sound of my amp onstage. This seemed like it might fit the bill so I bought one. It came in the other day and I hooked it up last night between my Suhr PT-100SE and matching 2x12 cab. I kept my condenser mic in the same exact spot as always and turned on my mixer and laptop to record the results. I am nothing short of amazed at the sound of this thing. I played for several minutes, put the guitar up and played the recording back thru my mixer. I used 2 separate channels (one for the mic, one for the PDI-03) and A/B'd them with the mute button on my mixer. Honestly,... the Palmer kind of sounded better,... or I guess I should say more like what I hear from my amp. Neither channel had comp, eq, nothing. I'm am traveling on business for the next few days but when I get back I will post the two recorded .wav files to see what you all think. I moved the switches some but honestly the best settings were Highs=normal, Lows=Flat, JB Switch=Off, Attenuator=(-24db) as suggested by the manual. My first reaction to this thing was pretty impressed. I will also try it on a few other amps, a tweed deluxe, brown Princeton and my JTM45,... we'll see how it fares with those too. Anyway, just saying that if you are looking at it and wondering if it's any good,.. I say yes it is! Two of my buddies heard the 2 clips today and couldn't tell what was mic'd and what was the Palmer. Dang good product that will hopefully make my sound much more consistent gig to gig. I will say that I have heard the Two Notes but never played thru one. It sounded good. Those seem like good products but I wanted something easy to connect and gig with,.. and passive. I'll load the clips in a day or so.
