Palmer PDI 06 L 08 8ohm Power Attenuator
Palmer Power Attenuator - Control the volume of your guitar amp

It can be so frustrating - you've just dialled in the ultimate guitar sound for your show, then the sound engineer says you have to turn your amp down, destroying your hard-tweaked tone in the process. NO MORE! The Palmer PDI 06 L is a professional power attenuator designed for live use and is available in both 8ohm and 16ohm versions. It plugs into your chain between the amplifier output and your cabinet and allows you to reduce the output level in 6 increments - from a full 100% right down to only 18% - while still driving the pre-amp and power stages of your amp all the way so you don't lose that perfect tone.

Perfect for stage, studio and rehearsal, the Palmer PDI 06 L even has a full load box function which mutes the connected speaker(s) to allow for completely silent recording from an amp equipped with an emulated line out. In all cases, it is important that the connected speakers match the impedance of the PDI06: the 8ohm version must be connected to either 1x8ohm cab or 2x16ohm cabs; the 16ohm version has just a single output for a 16ohm cab.
