have Shelford Channel know what you mean--supposed to be very similar to RNDI.

Love it for the electric cello.

I bought a REDDI a week or so ago and have used it to record my P-bass into an Apollo Twin X on several recordings of different styles of pop music. It punches/fattens up the bass more than my Aguilar DB900 or Daking/Great River preamp DIs ever did. It's a nice improvement over the interface's DI. Judging from online demos, I'd probably like the RNDI as well.

Hi Toby,
I´d like to ask if you have ever tried the Palmer Pocket Bass per-amp via DI Out on a mixer or interface with a global phantom power. I´ve bought it a few days ago, but left a bit surprised when I got an answer from Palmer Support that this pre-amp can NOT be used with the phantom power on as it may damage it. Have you ever had it connected to any device (mixer or interface) with a phantom power switched on?

I haven't... I have run it into a PA and into an interface with phantom options, but never used the power, left it switched off ... not got anything with global ad you describe ...

Wow, good to know. You don't see many pieces of pro gear these days that don't play well with phantom. Certain wireless receivers, and the Zulu are all that I can think of. But even those will just act up, they won't be damaged.
