  • Palmer PDI-03 vs SM57

    For all You rippin' at home... Is it better to krank it and run through Palmer or capture it silent with a SM57 ?


    Palmer set on Deep & normal - described as "british 4x12" for me it sounds more like a small cab with a Vintage 30 inside...
    Marshall 1936 on G12-75t... BTW I love those...



    Laney GH50L settings:

    Palmer - Deep & normal - amp master volume on 7,
    SM57 - Marshall 1936, Celestion G12-75T - amp master volume on 1,

    Resonance On,
    Presence 3.5
    Bas 6.5, Mid 4, Treble 5.5,,
    Gain Max, Drive 4,

    I would go for miking it still. After some EQ, maybe some multi tracking I think the real miked sound will be much better when the mix is done. The Palmer's speaker sim has not exactly aged well.

      Thank you for the comparison, I am actually looking at a palmer pga-04 right now. So far everything I have heard sounds fantastic.

        I used to have PGA-04, it's more tweakable & a bit more modern sounding comapring to PDI-03.
