High-Gain Rock Amplifier
Got a question about this product? Ask us!
While the high-gain revolutionary war wages between the Loyalist and the Patriot, the Mercenary stands alone in the middle. As its name suggests, it is an opportunistic circuit and can be voiced in either a British-style or American-style. In contrast to the other Modern Series amps, it is a no-frills, 2 channel high gain amp. And channel 2 has two separate footswitchable volumes. It's available as a EL34 model (50W or 100W) or a 6L6 model (60W or 120W.) The EL34 model's preamp is inspired by the Loyalist; The 6L6 model's preamp is inspired by the Patriot. The Mercenary is a simple amp that gets right to the point, getting the job done while delivering blistering high gain tones.
Recommended Speaker Pairing: Celestion 25W Greenbacks for 80's rock & metal; 75W G12Ts for modern metal.
Available as a 50-watt or 60-watt head or 2x12 combo. Also available as a 100-watt or 120-watt head.
