Palmer POCKET AMP BASS Portable Bass Preamp

The POCKET AMP series from Palmer features 3 incredibly versatile, fully-featured, portable pre-amps designed to ensure you get your perfect tone no matter where you are: recording, gigging, rehearsing or practicing at home. This is the Palmer POCKET AMP BASS.

The Bass Pocket Amp is a pre-amp, effects pedal, DI and cabinmet simulator in one tiny, ruggged box. The comprehensive set of features start with a 3-way mode switch to select between clean, overdrive and full-on fuzz accompanied by the drive control to set how much you push your signal. The Bass Pocket Amp also offers a 3-band EQ with a sweepable mid, a blend control allowing you to mix between the dry signal and the processed, and a master volume. In addition, there's also a unique SATURATE control which adds authentic tape-like saturation and limiting for those really warm, fat tones. The rugged stomp switch can be used either as a traditional bypass, switching between your direct signal and th eprocessed output, or as a mute switch which allows for silent tuning using the THRU output, and the 3-position cab sim provides flat, modern and vintage options to help shape your tone even further.

For maximum funtionality the Bass Pocket Amp features a host of options. On the front panel, you find the input with a switchable -12dB pad and an integrated limiter to prevent transient distortion. There is also a headphone output, auxiliary input (ideal for practising) and a THRU output to feed your dry signal out to a tuner, second amplifier or whatever your setup needs. The rear panel houses an XLR balanced DI output complete with ground lift to combat hum (switchable to be pre- or post-processing), an amplifier output, a phase switch, and even an insert jack for an FX loop, allowing you really push the boundaries or your creativity. This is where you'll also find the standard 9V DC input - although you can also power the Acoutic Pocket Amp with a standard 9V PP3 battery.

Like all the amps in the POCKET AMP series, the Bass Pocket Amp is contained in a portable, lightweight and strong die-cast aluminium enclosure for long life in unforgiving environments. The result is an incredible sound-shaping pre-amp for acoustic instruments ocmpatible right out of the box with amplifiers, PA systems, studio setups and more.
