I have been doing this professionally for 14 years now! Here are just a handful of testimonials.
For the past 14 years I have been designing, manufacturing and restoring tube audio gear.
I want you to proudly use, display
and cherish what I like to create.
Unless of course, you're an asshole.
"John Mergili is a gentleman and a scholar. Whenever my cabinet inventory becomes depleted, or if
someone need something I don't have, I send them to Mergili for great work and customer service."

"John Mergili is the best cabinet MAKER I know of operating today. Notice I said MAKER, not supplier. Suppliers resell cheap overseas labor cabs. John makes every cab himself in his workshop. They are as good as vintage Fenders and in some ways superior. Anyone building a DIY tube guitar amp and wondering which cabinet to complete the build with should cut to the chase and get a Mergili in brown lacquered tweed. Life's too short."

"I have one, and love it - I'm probably the guy from Belgium you're talking about. It's incredibly nicely made, has very high quality parts, and comes stock with a power transformer that'll work in the U.S. as well as in Europe.
I've talked to John Mergili in emails as well as on the phone, and he comes off as a very nice guy who stands behind his product all the way, and he's always answered my every question and been very accomodating."

"The cabinet is a wonderful piece of work by John Mergili in Austin TX. Check his website, he does incredible stuff. He has also built more tweed cabinets than most of us have had hot dinners, and he had some very light weight pine, John gave me a sample piece and built the cabinet with this wood."
