Are you looking to pick up the raw signal from a guitar, bass or keyboard without noise and tonal loss, even over long cable runs? That's exactly what the Palmer elde does - simply and reliably. Especially since the elde is a classic passive DI box, and it even has a dual-channel design. This means you can use it for stereo signals as well as for two different instruments.
The inputs are each looped to a Thru Out, allowing the signal to be passed on to the guitar/bass amplifier. For very high level signals, each channel has its own pad switch (-30 dB), so you can also insert the elde between the amplifier output and the loudspeaker. The output signals are balanced and with low impedance, so that they can withstand even longer cable runs without damage. Impedance conversion and balancing is done passively via a transformer, which also provides galvanic isolation. Each channel has its own ground lift switch to eliminate ground loops.
The Palmer elde is a high-quality two-channel di-box that is extremely easy to use. Due to its passive design, it requires neither batteries nor phantom power. This makes it extremely reliable and failure-proof. With its robust aluminium/steel housing, the Palmer elde easily withstands rough everyday use on stage, and with its clean, unaltered sound, it also excels perfectly in the recording studio.
