Topic: PDI-03 vs PDI-03 JB

I use a PDI-03 for home recording with my amps, which is great and I love the tone. I am considering investing into a PDI-03 JB model for my pedalboard so that I can run my revival drive into that, then straight into the PA (no amps). Other than not having the load (which I will not need for a no amp set up live), how does the tone of the PDI-03 JB model compare?

Re: PDI-03 vs PDI-03 JB

Although the only part of your post I understood was running through the PA with no amps I came across this Eric Johnson video that "might' be along the lines you're talking about???? I really have no clue other that he also is talking about using no amps straight into the PA.

Hi I assume you are referring to the rack mount Palmer PDI 03compared to the small pedal version. Well I am fortunate to have both. The big difference in the PDI 03 and PDI 03 JB besides the pedal profile is the JB model has specific tone that Joe has signed off on that is appealing to his ear. It add a great sense of clarity, punch and presence to your tone and brings it to the font of the mix. If you like the PDI 03 you will love the PDI 03 JB.

Hi Ron,

thanks for the reply. I know the the JB version doesn't act like a PDI-03 100% because it doesn't offer a load for silent recording. I was just wondering if the JB also had any type of speaker sim built in also like the rack unit. For some fly gigs, I want to just find something that i can plug my revival drive into that will offer cab/speaker sim to go straight into the PA.

Along those lines, though he is using the UA Ox, which offers IR's and also acts as a load box.
