Carr mercury har et klassisk ytre design som bringer visjoner om forlengst sluttproduserte vintageamper. Innmaten derimot er ny og innovativ med sitt singleend EL-34 sluttrinn og sin 4-trinns justerbare BIAS attenuator.
Selv med sine relativt små watt så er det ingen problemer med å bruke Carr Mercury på små klubbjobber. Som de fleste andre velbygde Boutique-amper så opereres det med relativt høymælte watt.
Single-ended fixed bias EL-34 output stage

Artister og presse:
This Carr Mercury is a remarkably satisfying amp to play, both in the studio & live - it's real juicy. It'll grind, and the proprietary attenuator setting still sounds like you're cranking the l'il beast without any of that anemic effect one might expect: I'll take one please!
Fortunately, I get to try a lot of different amps. I love an amp that lets my guitars sound like guitars, a Les Paul should sound like a Les Paul, a Dano like a Dano, etc., with as little outside coloration as possible. It should be as transparent as possible while giving you that feeling that your guitar is coming alive. I have a bunch of amps to choose from and what can I say but my Carr is on the A-list in front of the mics in my studio and not in the back collecting dust and has been since it came out of the box. - Joe Perry
