Carr Mercury V
The new Carr Mercury V is the latest offering from Carr Amplification, and is the older British cousin of their stellar Skylark amp.
This new version of the much loved Mercury comes 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 tones from 60s aggressive clean through 70s rock into 80s and 90s tasty crunch.
Carr's built in attenuator delivers real power tube overdrive at whisper levels retaining the feel and juice of full volume fun.
