TransAudio Group To Showcase Mercury Gear At AESTo showcase complete line of Mercury Recording products at Booth #602 (October 22, 2004)
TransAudio Group will be showcasing the complete line of Mercury Recording products at the AES Convention in San Francisco at Booth #602. Unlike previous years, in which the distributor's products were each individually showcased under the Audio Underground banner, TransAudio Group and president Brad Lunde will feature the full line of brands in a single large booth featuring manufacturing company representatives and guest audio engineers.
With classic audio processors such as those originally made by Fairchild, Pultec, and Telefunken now difficult to find, expensive to buy, and costly to maintain, Mercury Recording is dedicated to bringing the sonic and aesthetic character of those devices to new generations through an expanding line of hand-crafted classic recreations. Incorporating similar circuitry, tubes, custom transformers, and design ideas to the originals, all of Mercury Recording's products are hand-wired using silver solder, are fully transformer balanced, and feature a distinctive vintage look with powder coating or baked enamel finish with engraved lettering.
The first units initially introduced by Mercury Recording, which have all recently been updated, include the Mercury 66, a variable bias-style all-tube, all-transformer compressor similar to the Fairchild 660, and the Mercury EQ-H and EQ-P all-tube, all-transformer equalizers, which pay tribute to early tube EQs such as those made by Pultec. The company has now turned its attention to recreating the classic Telefunken/Siemens studio microphone amplifier modules with the Mercury M72s and the newly introduced M76m.
