Doug Rappoport plays Mezzabarba MZERO Overdrive

Doug Rappoport plays Mezzabarba MZERO Overdrive in his studio room.

This is the first channel of MZERO, with Boost engaged.

The signature Mezzabarba tone is chiseled, crystal-clear at any gain setting, and manages to be incredibly distinctive albeit not overpowering of a guitarist’s personal touch and style. May it be a blues solo, a metal riff or anything in between, the disruptively engineered preamp section allows for instant responsiveness, making these amps feel like a pulsing, living thing which instantly reacts and to any slight overtone a guitarist’s fingers wish to express.

Some of the unique features include:

  • Specially designed, zero-signal loss effects loop circuitry
  • Power amp Feedback control which allows for a more Brit or US tone
  • Innovative Master volume that allows for optimal tone at any volume
  • 100% “Bump-free” channel switching with zero sound loss


Cherished by an ever growing multitude of international artists the likes of Howie Simon (Alcatrazz), Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake), Doug Rappoport (Edgar Winter Band), Ike Willis (Frank Zappa), Skin Tyson (Robert Plant), Red Fang, and many more, Mezzabarba amps are distributed by Overdrive Distribution, L.A. and are available at selected US retailers.
