Retro Gear Shop is an authorized dealer for Mercury Recording Equipment Company, handmade in Hayward, California USA.

Mercury Recording Equipment, founded by David Marquette, is built and distributed by Marquette Audio Labs and proudly made in the USA. Since 1999, the focus of Mercury has been to continue providing the tone, quality craftsmanship, and musicality of classic, vintage studio equipment—like Telefunken / Siemens, Fairchild, Pultec, Langevin, Calrec and Neve—that has continued to inspire recording engineers for more than half a century. Mercury Recording Equipment does not build 'clones', but rather pays homage to vintage classics with new options and features to those circuits and devices in a more innovative, more flexible, modern build. Mercury's goal is to continue the tradition of providing 'professional' audio products—built to last—and help provide recording engineers with valuable tools to achieve the best recordings possible.

Mercury Recording Equipment products include: The Mercury Classic Line, featuring solid state/discrete and 'All Tube/All Transformer' studio program equalizers, limiters, microphone amplifiers, and recording channels; as well as the new Mercury D Series Line featuring the G810 Rack Systems (for D Series/500 Series Modules), G8 Modules (for G810 Rack Systems) and D Series Modules (for G810 and 500 Racks). Mercury Recording Equipment products are built with a combination of years of experience and new, innovative features, taking the 500 format to new level of quality, reliability and performance.
