Steve Carr's homage to classic Marshall amps of the past!

The Mercury V is a perfect example of Steve Carr's "tradition with a twist" approach: borrowing the best from the past while rocketing into the future.

Steve Carr describes this 16W, 1x12" combo as the British cousin to his Fender-flavored Skylark combo.

The Mercury V is highly touch-sensitive and features an absurdly versatile preamp section that mimics Marshall amps from the 1960s through the 1990s.

Carr's 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 burley watts in full power means the Mercury V is a commanding stage amp!

Plus, you get everything Carr is known for: solid pine dovetailed cabinet, top-notch workmanship, top-shelf components and point-to-point hand-wiring.
