Re: Mercury Magnetics for my Mesa Rectifier ????
Please don't switch out the Schumacher tranny for a Mercury. It will literally take away the qualities that make it a Mesa.
Yes, it will still have the gain and the ish-tones, but it will lose the truth of its character. The Schumacher is a very custom transformer designed specifically to hone in the dual rec's tones and character.
Start by getting some high end preamp tubes, RFT, Sylvania, JAN Raytheon, RCA, get some real vintage tubes and treat yourself to the tones that the Mesa can really produce. Don't switch out your transformer. PM me if you need.
