Manufacturer's Description from Carr

In 2003 Vintage Guitar’s Carr Mercury cover story exclaimed ‘Tone of the Gods’...

Now, 13 years later, the amp that started the full featured, low powered, attenuated combo revolution --- returns!! 

The Mercury V, older British cousin of our award winning Skylark, is back with a highly evolved feature set borrowing the best of the past while rocketing into the future.

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 tasty crunch.  Our built in attenuator delivers real power tube 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 Luscious Spring Reverb, full ranging Overdrive options and effective tone controls make the Mercury V an 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. Mercury V wins the six string triathlon ---- Home - Studio - Stage.  

Plus, you get everything Carr is known for, in-house crafted solid pine dovetailed cabinets, bleeding edge power supply components mixed with Mid-Century signal elements, and true point to point wiring.  The Mercury V – Scary Good!

About Manufacturer

Like you, all of us at Carr Amplifiers are guitarists. We share your love of the guitar, and we feel very fortunate to build amplifiers for a living at our shop in Pittsboro, North Carolina. And although we are understandably proud of our unique circuit designs, meticulous point-to-point construction, premium components and hand-crafted cabinets, our success has ultimately been the result of one simple fact; discerning guitarists continue to enthusiastically embrace the tone, reliability and versatile nature of our amplifiers. Perhaps it's because we view guitar amps as being as much an instrument as the guitar itself, and we truly believe that an amplifier should become a personal extension of every player. To that end, we strive to design and build amps with a distinct character and sonic personality, and the flexibility and practical features that will inspire you to create your very own signature sound at volume levels appropriate for home, studio and stage.
