Palmer MI POCKET AMP BASS - Portable Bass Preamp

Providing extensive sound shaping options for active and passive bass guitars, the Pocket Bass Amp is a multi-purpose effects pedal and preamp that‘s perfect for gigging, recording and practising. It features clean, overdrive and fuzz modes with adjustable drive and saturation, a 3-band EQ with semi-parametric mid control that is specifically tuned for bass guitar and vintage or modern cabinet simulation. A blend control allows you to mix the direct and effected signals. The Pocket Bass Amp provides an insert for external effects, 3.5 mm stereo line input and headphones output for quiet play-along practice and a footswitch-assignable thru jack for silent tuning. Enabling DI applications, the balanced XLR output is pre or post effect switchable. The Pocket Bass Amp requires a 9 volt battery or power adapter and comes in a rugged diecast enclosure with heavy duty long-life footswitch, convenient LED status indicators and ground lift.

  1. Fantastic piece of kit! Review by Graham Furlonger

    I was looking for a cost effective way of practicing bass without knocking the next door neighbours whimsys’ off her shelves! (If your too young to remember whimsys look it up on google!)
    Its difficult to play a 250 watt head and 4x10 cab quietly at 3am in the morning! (Just joking about the time).
    I needed a di box that has headphone facility and also wanted the ability to plug in my phone or ipad to use backing tracks that I play against. This little box does it all. Its incredibly sturdy and really built like a piece of military equipment. It also will run quite happily off one internal 9v battery or also a DC supply the same as effects pedals.
    The sound modelling is extensive and also has nice features such as a Pad -12db setting for my Ibanez 5 string active bass as well as normal setting for my passive Fender 4 string.
    It has balanced output via three pin XLR and also a bass thru socket (phono).
    Other great touches are ground lift and FX inserts socket, although this needs a specially adapted photo plug which has three poles.
    It also has a standard phono plug output to your amp/head rig so you can have monitoring on stage as well as your output going via sound engineers to front of house.
    Three cab sound settings and also an inbuild overdrive and seperate fuzz setting. (I have found that these settings are quite good but not up to my big muff pi.
    Its an amazing compact bit of kit and although i hardly ever bother writing any gear reviews, I was that impressed It had to be done!
    Its finished in an atractive satin black and has various LED lights to let you know whats going on. The footswitch is positive and feels very robust.
    What more can I say, i would really recommend this either as a practice aid or as a DI in its own right.
    I have yet to try it on my PC using Studio One 3 DAW but im sure it will excel.
    Lastly, the battery door on the base is well made and doesnt feel like it will break easily and the base has a layer of moulded foam around the battery compartment to give some grip when placed on the floor.
    Go and buy one, you wont be dissapointed!
