Fender Vibrolux Reissue (OT: FBFVL-O, PT: FBFVL-RI-P/240, Choke: FC-VIBROL, Reverb Transformer: FBFRT) Marco from Italy

changes are made......what can I say? Simply perfect! Mercury works perfect....now the amp sound incredibly well...but Weber speakers make the amp unbelievable...the sound is so clear, bass sound big and the treble are sparkling with a new flush.... Thanks my friend....thanks thanks thanks!


Fender Blues Deville (OT: BLDV-O, PT:BLDV-P/E) Lars from Norway

Since Thursday night the Deville has been home from the "make over", but due to a tight program I haven't been able to test it - grim truth! However, just now I felt the urge to strum the Les Paul and finally hear whether the Mercurys had made a difference. Bare in mind I initially wanted to rebuild the amp for both safety reasons and practical reasons - the sound part came in third in my list. So, what do you think I heard when I turned the amp on an dialed me in at bedroom level (wife and kids in bed)? Earlier the amp sounded dull and "transistorish" at low levels -also the ice pick sound was prominent (a feature not only I have noticed with the Deville). But, hail the new and refurbished Deville - wow, wow and wow again!!! Even at a measly 2 volume, the amp is a pure and inspirational joy to play! It responds beautifully, it compresses creamily, the Fender "bell ding" is present even on the bridge pick up of my Les Paul, and the tone is full - just packed to the brim! That new Mercury Magnetics trannys have been a success is a mild understatement - it's a huge and total success! I can't wait until tomorrow, then I can turn it up to seven (sweet spot for super creamy tweed tube saturation) and also hook up the Weber MASS to attenuate some, but hey - this tone I want to attenuate as little as possible, I guess. So, thank you so much for helping me out with the order and such, Irving. The amp is now where it should have been years ago - I'm glad I held on to it instead of buying a new one - the makeover has been an economic success as well. It has cost me much less to fix this amp, than to buy a new (or used) boutique one. The "new" amp has that sweet boutique sound to it - crisp, slightly compressed and punchy (without the ice pick sting)! Way cool!


Fender Twin (OT: F-TWIN-CUST15-O) Martin from Germany
I have had about 3 rehearsals with that tranny now.
Conclusions so far...
I was aware of, that an “Axiom” is not a '''ToneClone''' and decided for that one.
One part of me slightly misses the vintage Blackface feeling, which the Hammond previously definitely transported.
The strengths of the Mercury Cust-15 are not to be scoffed at.
It's definitely more touchy, direct and efficient. From the first moment on, I positively recognised much more high range (real good one, no harsh sounds at all).
It's interesting, that despite the MM having more than twice as much iron as my old Hammond, it does not noticeably transfer more or lower bass, but it has incredible bass control, which makes the presence control, I've installed (and therefore the whole amp) more versatile.
It sounds a bit like I would expect a clean Dumble to sound like, which does collude with my tone stack changes.
The more 'hi-fi' Twin now interacts better with pedals. Using the Bad Monkey as boost, I easily can get into authentic Hendrix and SRV territory, while putting MXR Distortion III into crunch setting; I can do any ACDC rhythm without needing a Marshall stack.
Conclusion: my back hates the weight, but my ears like it a lot.
The amp is a keeper, but it requires two handles now.
Martin wrote at a later date: I am still very pleased with my Twin Cust15 OT, you sold to me.
The whole Amp is an even more incredible Clean-machine now.


Fender Super Reverb (OT: FBFS-O40, Reverb tranny: FBFRT, Choke: FC-SUP) Niels from Denmark

I have now used the upgraded amp live a couple of times and there really is a change. The bass response is better - firmer and fuller - the mids and highs are smoother and the reverb seems deeper and "bigger" somehow.
