Another year, another dazzling parade of pedals, guitars, amps, modelers, and accessories that made our noggins spin.


Carr Mercury V

The Mercury V is a perfect example of Steve Carr’s “tradition with a twist” approach to building amps. The 16-watt, 1x12 combo’s Brit-style features include a simple yet versatile preamp section that mimics the gain characteristics of Marshall amps from the ’60s through the ’90s. The Celestion speaker is another British nod. Workmanship is top-notch. PG’s Joe Gore declared it “simply one of the finest-sounding amps I’ve ever played.”
