Gear: Palmer FAB 5 review & demo with Tele & SG

Palmer FAB 5 is Class A 5W tube combo with 6V6 power tube.

Brett Kingman’s review:

5 rockin’ Watts of German Class A combo goodness. The Fab 5 is built beautifully and sounds even better. Hitting that Boost knob takes it into an overdrive that approaches blues/rock perfection in my opinion. As a recording amp it would be… will be… very valuable.
