    I was thinking about buying two of them, and to qualify for the multi-unit discount, I was wondering if anyone else out there would like to get some at the same time and enjoy the cost savings too....let me know.

    I'm game, but I want the FBFTO-100, and I only need one. But if we could piggy back something, I'd be interested. Not sure how that'd work though, as they're shipping to different areas, unless of course, you're buying them together, and then sell to the group.

    Matt - the order would need to be placed and paid for at one time (I would take care of those details), and I believe Mercury will drop-ship to each location as needed. I've seen other groups of people do this before....If anyone out there would like to upgrade their amps with a new tranny, let me know.

    Mods - I thought about whether I should post this in the dealer emporium, but since I'm not a dealer (I'm just a homebrewer) and there is more traffic in this forum I thought I would post here. Let me know if this is a problem.

    thanks.

    I definitely need the OT, so count me in, although just buying one OT, I'm not much help. Regardless, I'm in.

    OK Tonedaddy - let me know.

    I'll probably leave this post up for a week or so, to hopefully pick up a few more people.

    Merc's are the best, its all I will use in my amps period.

    Paul over there is great to deal with too.

    The folks at MM are great to work with.

    I've had some minor problems over the years
    but they have always made good on their
    word and have always treated me fairly.

    You can usually judge how well a company is run
    not just when things go right, but how they handle
    a mistake and treat their customer afterwords.

    Sergio and Paul are both honest and first rate folks.

    I'll continue to do business with these folks for
    years to come.

    Mercury is always my first choice when I'm considering
    a tranny.

    Just wondering if they provide the color codes for the tranny's when you order? I might not be able to wait all week though. My Aiken Sabre is on the fritz and I need an amp this Wednesday, and this weekend. My Laney VH100R is needing the OT. Is there any delay after the order? Any wait time for assemply? Thanks. :confused:

    they provide a schematic of the wiring.

    Most of the time they always have the trannys in stock that I have bought. Only a couple of times I had to wait for them to be wound which usually only takes a week or two.

    You can count me in as well if there is room on the order. I need an ac30 albion clone output trannie.

    FWIW, I have bought 5 trannys from them in the last year and I've been very happy with the products and the service. I'm never getting a tranny anywhere else.

    I agree...Mercs are the best IMO, and I'm not ever using anything else if I can help it. I have a JTM45 RI that I began reworking some time ago....I added a MM JTM tranny to that amp, and that one change alone made all of the difference in the world. It was so dramatic, that I was afraid to start changing anything else!

    I'll leave this thread up a bit longer, then round everyone up so that I can place the order. Thanks for everyones interest.:dude

    If you buy MM trannies through Metroamp, the single price is only $15 more than the 5 piece price.

    Do you have to contact them directly for that pricing? The pricing on the online store doesn't appear to coincide with the pricing your stating.
