Palmer Speaker Simulator PDI-03

Designed by Martin Schmidtz in Frankfurt, Germany, the Palmer PDI-03 Speaker Simulator was originally Palmer's main product. Unfortunately this came to an end when they received a threat of legal action from Groove Tubes for having some similarities in design the their SE unit. Palmer then ceased production of the 03 and designed a new simulator which became the PGA-04.
