About Mercury Magnetics
Far more than tubes, speakers or other amp components, the transformers play a key role in shaping an amp's unique sound. As amp designers, techs and manufacturers are discovering, the practice of dumping generic, low-bidder transformers into their amps isn't cutting it any more. Today's players are more informed and demanding than ever before. They hear the difference and know that both transformer design and build-quality play key roles in shaping their sound.
Transformer sets are often misunderstood, yet vital musical components, integral to the nuances of your guitar amp's sound. If your amp is suffering from bland and unexciting tone then it's probably related to low-end transformers.
Keep in mind that most guitar amplifiers are made with mass-produced components. We're not slamming anyone, because it's just a matter of economics. However, if you're not happy with your amp's tone, you'll be absolutely blown away by the dynamic improvement only possible by upgrading its trannys.
Whether you are interested in a vintage transformer drop-in replacement, rebuilding an existing (and valuable!) vintage transformer, or you're looking to upgrade your modern tube amp, Mercury Magnetics will beat your tonal expectations -- going light-years beyond original manufacturer build quality.

CAUTION! The voltages in your amplifier can be dangerous. Transformers and chokes are not user serviceable parts. Installation of these components should always be performed by an experienced technician. The simple ability to use a soldering iron is not enough to qualify a "do it yourself person." Those who are inexperienced in working with electronic circuits should never attempt to service their amplifier. Household line currents can be deadly!!! Transformers, chokes and large filter capacitors can store a dangerous charge for several days or more after the amplifier has been unplugged. Never touch the terminals of such devices without being certain of their charge status. Risk of shock and damage to equipment may result from mishandling and/or improper use of these components. Please use common sense and always think safety first. After all, tone is most enjoyed when you are alive to hear it.
