Jacques Stompboxes Mercer Box
See below


Very simple and very complex
use a pedal manually, not the foot
like "great! I pressed my pedal and I agree with the angels !!"
no, the pedal Jacques is much more subtle than a


I do not know whether to REALLY talk effect in this case
rather than 'staining
I do not use it so often as distortion
but cons, I always have with me as Pramp
in any context, it finds its place
never been as transparent pedal
as effective
a kind of guarantee that everything will be fine


I possde this pedal for about 2 years
I prefer what is its ct 'all terrain'
I look for a type of sound and I find the
of course, you have to handle long to know how to use
but what RESULTS !!!
I instinctively bought because it did not propose its typ too, but a potential rel ... standard !!!
given the quality, nothing wrong, chre but she ended my quest distortion and supply me more
an exceptional tool
a marvel of technology,
for those who think outside the box !!

ricoute's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" + classic fuzz distortion in one box!"

Jacques Stompboxes Mercer Box
I just tried in a relatively short period of time but I think I've seen its features

I do not know why Jacques dons his buttons name that does not mean anything, and especially not mean anything!

Hate is in the blood low in the mid love in acute
These tones are quite marked, can be kind of semi parametric equalization

level is the level of distortion and fuzz knob (I have not tried since being focused on distortion)

I do not know if it is analog, I think ....

it's all out in


yes and no, it is true that the settings used to have quite varied tones, even if the grain does not change fundamentally.

no manual therefore no need to have it rotates it acts, though there may be interaction between the knobs 5


The grain is quite biting and quite attractive on a laney Lionhart 5w and a Fender bronco mono mic Di Marzio sending!

Guitar only

THERE has variations of settings, and you can get a full sound, finally dug a whole range of possibilities in terms of tone.

Where I was disappointed it was on criteria integrations, I was expecting something other than just a range of tones despite the fuzz, and m "rightly expect greater extremes in terms of versatility.

Anyway all positions are usable, but attention to breath and sensitive enough présznt when the level rises to more than median position

I have not tried the fuzz, with the Apocalypse of death by audio fuzz with these 5 that has a special charm, and this box can compete Question grain and possibilities with it!


I just tried, I wished to acquire "used 80th so reasonably priced, but the field is too limited application has deterred me to take it, even if it remains a classic model recommended BUT am in total disagreement ds this forum who credits a versatile usage question, I will classify the distortion on a classic fuzz + therefore above in terms of effectiveness and efficiency of overdrive, though a bit bright but not on the heavy distortion either!

It is true that I want in absolute gain pedal 2 channels that can move the thrust overdrive distortion (such as the effect Piod brand with the model what you want 2 made in Urkraine or Tritonlab brand with CARAVAN the model with a budget just over cad 200th (and 139 € for the new mercer box!) is a gap but a substantial price gap qualitative and bcp in terms of versatility

The R / P / Q is very good for an argus price, good enough because it was nine in the same pedal distortion and fuzz.

Label Steve Morse, is a purely commercial argument, and one that holds the site, has a priori nothing to do with that sold 4 knobs instead of 5 (the consumer version with better, weird!) and probably calibrated and adjusted to the desire of the master, but not in connection with this modest ... model series!

Her.bak's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" What is this thing?"

Jacques Stompboxes Mercer Box
Fuzz pedal ... and not just because the available sounds ranging from clean boost to ongoing feedback. Warning pedal is pretty ugly!


The pedal is a bit confusing at first, with the knobs as "Hate", "Blood" or "Love" ... A small passage on the manufacturer's website and it has a list of seven basic settings that allow see more clearly.
In addition, the knobs interact, move the blood with love 1 or 50 and see the difference!


The range of effect thus obtained is huge, especially for a Fuzz!
It is connected to a U.S. Std Tele with vintage microphone (Tornado kit tele55 ') and amplified by a Blues Junior III or TubeMeister.
I used as much as a clean boost that crunch or as an OD.
Mixed with a distortion of tube amp (here TubeMeister 18) slice it in bright, but watch out for feedback, the settings are fine.


This is my first fuzz pedal and already replaced all distortion / effects OD / Crunch boss GT-10 and the preamp (not difficult but some say anyway!).
Pedal to try at least for emergency sound experience

cosmitron's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Jacques Stompboxes Mercer Box
Overdrive / fuzz pedal analog format has the old


The config could not be simpler, very intuitive. not need a manual just his hand!


The sound is a disconcerting variation on rich clear transparent (the original grain and scratches are preserved amp) authenticity of bluffing! All sounds are used according to expectations. But typical old school rock.


J ene have that test. (But with the help of Mr. Jacques, I have plenty of time to fiddle with the pedal with the volume turned more)
Compare on-site ... one 0D9 maxon Difficult to admit that Mercer is much more interesting box.
The price for the coup is more than justified.

I tried this pedal yesterday ... I did still recovering .. I was away from home for a boss ... OD1 but it has everything!
In addition to Mr. Jacques is a true passion that does not hesitate to give us compare products!
