  • Anybody heard of Mezzabarba Amps?

    Never heard of them until last week and there was a used little 18 watt 1/12 combo sitting in the used section at my local Guitar Center. Was breathtaking on the clean tones and just floored me. Best clean amp in this size and power range I have ever played EVER! Almost bought the amp on the spot and am stunned I had never heard of these amps before. All the guys who work there were blown away by the little rig but know nothing about these so??
    Was one of these

    Amps PRS Archon 50 head, MT 15, Mesa Subway Rocket, DC-5, Carvin X50B Hot Rod Mod head, Zinky 25watt Blue Velvet combo.

      I thought your search had ended with the Zinky. Then I thought your search had ended with one or both PRS. I'm surprised to see it continue.

            Wasn't looking just dropped by the GC to see several friends who work there. The little amp blindsided me. . Know nothing about these amps and was shell shocked I was so small and sounded so good. No loop and a single channel amp so for me would not get played out a lot but man that TONE!!
            Zinky won't leave or the 2 PRS amps and also my Boogie Subway Rocket so pretty happy with my set up as of now.

                    Yep that sounds awesome, and yes, I have heard of them. They don't come cheap, but, Ms Smith, need I say more.

                      I have seen the Ola vid as well as a few others before that one. They sound good to my ears but the market is really saturated with amps right now so it's hard to really hear a tone that differentiates them enough to justify the price tag with so many other brands like KSR, Omega, Dover, Diamond, Revv, Armored, Friedman, Ceriatone, Diezel, the list just goes on and on....

                        Saw that video and I agree. It was the cleans on the little 18 that got me. Best by far I have ever encountered in a tiny amp like that and far better than ANY Fender I ever heard or have owned and that was the shocker.. It wasn't volume but the tone and the fullness and richness of it. It really filled that room and rivaled some thing like a Zinky designed CS Fender Vibro King but was light and tiny. Was just a jaw dropper!

                          Not a big fan to much hype and not enough real player IMO there are a LOT better real Demos of that amp out there.
                          Here is a really good one. This shows the full capability of the amp and they are very good . You are talking at $ $k for the Trinity as being in the the same price range here as a real SLO though so really hard to justify as can get a PRS head that would rival it at 1/2 the $.

                            I know them very well. My guitar teacher is endorser and I live only 50 minutes from their factory. Great amps so far. Expensive for sure but fantastic. The trinity 50w is the amp I prefer the most.
