Experienced amp techs and amp-savvy players know...


ToneClone® Series Transformers

Let your ears re-discover and re-experience real vintage tone. Imagine having an unlimited budget (and time) to play thousands of amps -- including the often spectacular specimens held in private collections all over the world. Then from this exhaustive search you get to pick the one or two that have THE sound.

ToneClone transformers are exact genetic duplicates from these sought-after amps. Many came from amps owned by your favorite players. The same amps that were used to record some of the greatest electric guitar songs we've known.

That's why Mercury constantly seeks only the best-of-the-best transformers to add to our catalog. When an exceptional transformer is discovered, it is carefully studied, analyzed and duplicated. Mercury engineers clone every detail and nuance of these best-of-breed transformers -- a process we've been refining and improving upon for decades.

ToneClone transformers are designed for upgrades, replacements or custom-built tube-based amps. ToneClone transformers come with both our 10-year Workmanship Warranty and Tonal Guarantee.

Axiom® Series Transformers

Axiom series transformers are in a class by themselves. We've taken our advanced knowledge of modern transformer designs and mated it with our unparalleled expertise with vintage gear. The result is next-generation transformers that'll blow your mind!

With Axiom transformers you not only get vintage tone -- but a lot more! More bloom, more overtone color, and awesome tonal depth. If you ever needed a demonstration as to how outstanding transformers will affect your sound -- Axiom transformers will astonish you.

Axiom transformers represent the most significant improvement in transformer design since the post-WWII era (American and British). Many mistakenly believe that modern transformers cannot duplicate the sound and tonal qualities of their original counterparts. Typically this would be true, however, Mercury has gone to extraordinary lengths to do the job the correct way. No other company has either the knowledge, expertise or the wherewithal to duplicate our efforts. Don't be fooled by false claims.

The proof is in the product. Try our Axiom designs in your amp, and if you don't love them, just send them back. No questions asked.

Axiom transformers come with both our 10-year Workmanship Warranty and Tonal Guarantee. Axiom transformers may be used for upgrades, replacements or custom tube-based guitar amp applications.

Ask any British guitar amp aficionado about Radiospares and they'll bend your ear for hours about the these incredible-sounding VOX and Marshall amps.

Mercury is extremely proud to offer these outstanding transformer designs. All Radiospares transformers come with both our 10-year Workmanship Warranty and Tonal Guarantee. Radiospares transformers may be used for upgrades, replacements or custom tube-based guitar amp applications.

Partridge Series Transformers

Mercury continues the tradition of the company that pioneered audio transformers in the U.K. Perhaps best known for their role in vintage Hiwatt amps, Partridge remains amongst the most preferred transformers from British amps of that era. Their design and build quality was a rarity, even for back then. And, like all well-made transformers from great designs, the original Partridges have their own outstanding tonal and other sonic qualities.

Our Partridge line are clones of the original Partridge transformers used mostly in the first Hiwatt amps. All Partridge transformers come with both our 10-year Workmanship Warranty and Tonal Guarantee.

Partridge transformers may be used for upgrades, replacements or custom tube-based guitar amp applications.

APS® (American Pro Series) Transformers

The newest family of transformer designs from Mercury. APS transformers are built and specifically optimized for today's amps and today's tubes. Due to power, modern tube production, design and chassis "real estate" limitations, not all modern amps can be modified or upgraded to handle the full-on affects of our Axiom, ToneClone, Radiospares or Partridge transformers. APS transformers correct many of the design limitations of the stock transformers to give you the most your amp can offer. APS transformers make your amp more reliable and better sounding. If you depend on your modern amps for a living, then you need the peace of mind APS transformers will give you. Transformers made to take the punishment of being on the road and keeping your amp running.

All APS transformers come with our Automatic Thermal Resettable Fuses. Ask your Mercury Sales Rep about this important new feature! All APS transformers come with both our 10-year Workmanship Warranty. APS transformers may be used for upgrades or replacements for modern tube-based guitar amp applications.

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.
