Pittsboro, NC (September 10, 2007) – Carr Amplifiers is unveiling a smaller version of its much-hailed Mercury amp. The Mini-Mercury amplifier is an extremely versatile combo with all-tube Reverb, a 3-position Boost switch, a Treble cut switch, and a built-in attenuator yielding 8, 2, 1/2, or 1/10 watt output. The Mini-Mercury is 100% hand wired and rigorously tested.
The Mini-Mercury offers luscious tones and big amp ‘feel’ ranging from lush '60s American reverb to modified brown '70s British crunch at almost any volume.
All Carr Amplifiers have solid pine cabinets with dovetailed corners built in-house. The cabinet measures a friendly 19.5” wide by 15” tall by 10” deep at the bottom sloping to 9” deep on the top. This is 2" shorter and 1 3/4" narrower than the standard Mercury, making it very compact.
Output is through a single JJ E34L power tube while the preamp uses two 12AX7s and one 12AT7. The new Mini-Mercury has the same electronics as the standard Mercury differing only in its smaller cabinet and its warm and smoky 10” Eminence "Lil Buddy" hemp cone speaker.
List price $2250
