Howie Simon / Alcatrazz

“Well, I think I’ve finally found it! The Mezzabarba M-Zero Overdrive is an absolute BEAST of an amp! It’s got gain for days, it’s warm, it cuts through, and it doesn’t have that scooped mid-range sound. The cleaner channel has a perfect break-up response to how hard I hit the strings. The depth control lets me add beefiness to my Strats. This thing sounds HUGE! And the M-Zero Overdrive looks cool as hell, too. You simply HAVE to take this thing out on the racetrack!”

“Signing on with Mezzabarba Custom Amplification has been one of the best moves I’ve made in my career. Not only are Pierangelo and J.P. obsessed with great tone like myself, they are genuinely great guys as well. I am touring with the Trinity head and the ’69 4×12 straight cab and the tone is absolutely massive and crushing yet defined and articulate. A huge accomplishment for Mezzabarba. Looking forward to a long future with these guys!”

  • Recently I had the pleasure of playing through a MEZZABARBA OVERDRIVE amp that my friend and fellow shred guitarist JP Cervoni brought to the 8th annual N.A.M.M. Metal Jam in Anaheim California. I must say that amp is a BEAST!!! All the power, crunch, grit and glory that any heavy metal guitarist would dream of. I loved the amp and would recommend to any metal guitarist out there shopping for a killer amp to give the MEZZABARBA OVERDRIVE amp a tryout, you won't be disappointed!
