OVERVIEW

Blends perfect fuzz and raging Plexi 100-watt tone!

The Mercer Box Concept Distortion Pedal takes all of Jacques' 30-plus year's knowledge of distortion tone and puts it at your fingertips through its outstanding controls. Jacques' latest creation/sensation is based on his highly sought-after hand-built Mercer, with added controls and a few new twists. The MR2 pedal features the widest tonal range ever achieved in a stomp box -- from clean boost to the highest gain -- and performs the best clean-up of all time. The MR2 will change your perception of guitar tone forever.

The MR2 features high-tech construction combined with hand-built tone for the best of both worlds. Using discrete components for tone and high-tech components for non-tone, Jacques has merged his best handmade designs into a coherent electronic device.

Key to the Mercer's extensive operating ranges is its uniquely named controls. HATE introduces an immense low range, while lack of LOVE takes off the harmonics and gain. BLOOD brings intense life and FUZZ brings in distortion with no limits. Level acts much like a guitar volume, allowing users to "clean-up" the sound as they roll it off. All these controls are highly interactive and different combinations will yield vastly different results.

At ease with single-coil pickups or humbuckers, the Mercer lets loose a world of excess, bringing your amp to new frontiers beyond any description. And the extraordinary feature of the Mercer is that you can decrease this huge distortion tone gradually down to clean, simply using your guitar volume knob. In the past, numerous attempts to morph distortion in real time have failed, but here and now you get a fully effective remote distortion controller for free. Little-finger maestro guitarists a la Steve Morse will find this just one more reason to own a Mercer Box 2.

One of the rare high-gain distortion pedals to offer a brilliant clean tone, the MB2 is stronger, warmer, and richer when engaged than when bypassed. Very reminiscent of the best tube amps, the MB2 clean tone is so addictive you could leave it on all the time, or buy a second Mercer Box just for distortion!

disappointing

By j.q.

from montclair, nj

Comments about Jacques MR2 Mercer Box Concept Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

i read a review of this and ran out and bought one. unfortunately it doesn't really work that well. the controls really don't dial in many different sounds. "fuzz" and "love" are more or less identical. the bass and mid controls aren't all that good, and the output is fairly weak unless you have the distortion ("fuzz"/"love" cranked).worst of all, it makes the most hideous, amateurish sound when palm-muting power chords. i've tried it on a bunch of guitars (which sound good thru much cheaper distortion pedals) and it gives them all this crappy fret-buzz noise when palm-muting. i think the ibanez soundtank classic metal pedal is much more versatile and organic-sounding, and that cost me like 1/5 the price of this.the mercer box is a total waste, considering the price. jacques' personal description of the pedal makes it sound like the ultimate distortion box; unfortunately, it's nothing like he says.

The everything pedal is here

By Univoxbassman

from Dallas, NC

Comments about Jacques MR2 Mercer Box Concept Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This pedal is amazing!!!!! I have been using mine for over 1 1/2 years and it still performs flawlessly. Before you plug this in, do a little research on the Internet a get the example settings and expanded usage instructions. It is not a "simple" pedal; although definitely can be used as a simple disortion pedal but that would be a waste of its capabilities. I keep this pedal in my effects chain constantly. This baby adds body and expression to everything from low end starter level to "am a crazy for paying this much" high end axes. This pedal can give you tube distortion, clean mellow sustain, and crazy, hard, in your face distorion and much more in between. With this pedal set to the correct settings your volume knob becomes a gain control. Do not buy one of these - but two or three and use each for a different role in your chain. P.S. An added extra - Although this pedal is a guitar pedal, it can be used with an electric bass for an amazing heavy-metal bass effect. You must experiment with the settings on your bass, the pedal, and your amp to get it right, but it is worth. Hint: start a notebook with the setting recorded for your different sounds.

The best Pedal Ever !!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Jacques MR2 Mercer Box Concept Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I recently bought this pedal and I was amazed at the tones this thing can produce. All my life I have been a real straight Les Paul through a Fender Hot Rod kind of guy but this pedal has changed that I use whenever I play and could not live without it.

So overpriced

By thebouncingsoul

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about Jacques MR2 Mercer Box Concept Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I was amazed by how cheaply made this pedal is for its price tag. Almost every aspect of the craftsmanship is cheap, compared to a standard Boss pedal or other major make. Particularly, the foot pedal is absolutely terrible. I have to admit the sound of the pedal is good and it has a fair amount of versatility, but this thing in no way justifies its price tag.
