The Skill Combo is a concentrate of pure Mezzabarba sound, power and transparency enclosed in a beautiful, 18 kg portable cabinet. As always, Mezzabarba's motto is "no compromise," and that's precisely the philosophy that inspired the Skill and its unprecedented engineering effort.
The first channel is derived from the Mzero Standard in the view of granting it the best possible interface with pedals. A bright and a boost switch, together with the great equalizer, allow it to yield all of the sounds that a single channel amp can possibly deliver. The second channel is the Mzero Overdrive channel which starts as crunch and saturates exponentially with amazing sustain and harmonic richness, leaving musicians and audiences in awe.
The ingenious switching system does not alter the dynamics or fluidity of the amp, and allows the player to swap between channels in an unprecedented smooth fashion. The innovative power control allows the Skill Combo to deliver a full-body, saturated sound even at very low volumes, which makes this amp a perfect tool to enjoy even at home and just like all Mezzabarba amps, the power amp section features oversized transformers that deliver the best and most solid sound in any conditions, at any volume. Finally, the switchable, full-tube effects loop allows for endless sound possibilities.
The Skill was born to rock but can do anything, at any volume, in any place. Nothing will be the same anymore.
