"We strive to design and build amps with a distinct character, sonic personality, flexibility, and practical features that will inspire you to create your very own signature sound at volume levels appropriate for home, studio, and stage." - Steve Carr
Our first, freshly redesigned Carr Mercury V just landed! Everything we loved about the original Mercury is present - killer looks, tones, and living-room & studio friendly features - but the Mercury V greatly expands upon the original formula in a way we find undeniably great.
The Mercury V is highly touch sensitive with a huge range of English tones from 60s aggressive clean thru 70s rock into 80s and 90s crunch. The built in attenuator delivers real tube power overdrive at whisper levels retaining the feel and juice of full volume fun.
Like recording on your computer? Just plug the Mercury V line out into your A/D interface and go! The lucious spring reverb, wide ranging overdrive options, and effective tone controls make the Mercury V and invaluable recording tool. Home player? Experience big amp satisfaction with domestic tranquility. Gigging musician? 16 burly watts in full power means the Mercury V is a commanding stage amp.
In-house crafted solid pine dovetailed cabinets, bleeding edge power supply components mixed with Mid-Century signal elements, and true point-to-point wiring make the redesigned Mercury V scary good!
