"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
Carr's legendary Mercury combo might just be the ultimate home / small gig amp. With it's well-designed power attenuation circuit, you can go from 8 watts all the down to 1/10 of a watt!
At 1/10 of a watt (quieter than standard TV viewing volume), you can get some serious EL34 fueled gain happening - especially with the boost switch engaged. The boost switch has 3 settings which will bypass the tone circuit as you go higher up the settings. This yields impressive amounts of gain that's about as pure and true to your guitar's unique voice as you can get (no coloration from the tone circuit).
As you go into 1/2, 2, and lastly 8 watt modes on the attenuator switch, you gain lush, 3-diminsional clean headroom. Add a beautifully voiced reverb and cut switch and you're in tone heaven.
Condition: Near mint cosmetically, no issues functionally.
Perfect for late night sessions when the kids are asleep in the next room or small club dates with a reasonable drummer (is there such a thing? Kidding).
