I never thought I'd see 'Merc Swag' on eBay... especially "vintage" Merc Swag [that was from either the second or third run of shirts were ever did... it has the 'Mercenary Territory' lyrics on the back, we only did like two runs of those before the "4 Food Groups" and black shirts came to be the norm].

That's great.

Hey, do you still send out T-shirts and/or earplugs when someone buys gear from you? I just got a pair of Josephson C42MP from your shop. I opened up the box and they look beautiful. I kept looking in the box in hopes of finding the cool T-Shirt or earplugs that people have posted about and there was nothing. Santa must have thought I was bad this year and took them away. Bummer.

I did get a lot of great help and advise from Jay and the box came right on time. Thanks.

...yeah, I hear the early "whitecloth" Mercenary T-Shirts have a sweeter high-end and sound a bit warmer whereas the later "blackcloth" Mercenary T-Shirts aren't transformer coupled and sound more "hi-fi".

Of course that could just be because most "whitecloth" units have been washed more.

YMMV

I'm surprised the auction title didn't read "Mercenary T Shirt, NOT Neve API Manley or Fleece"

There are usually earplugs in the box... we had some extra 'holiday help' with box packing last week [my kids]... so the earplugs and calendar may have been omitted from your package... zip me a PM with your info and we'll correct the error... oh, and they were gray, not white.

SO -

the dirty little secret of M-A's pricing comes out at last: CHILD LABOR


That Ebay shirt definitely looks white, not grey; so either it's been modded, or it's a knockoff...boy what people won't stoop to these days!
