“I can’t begin to say enough good things about the Bergantino 1-12 cabinets. One cab alone can easily handle low to medium volume jobs and produce a superior, well-rounded tone with depth and more lows than you’d expect from a small cab. However, when you put two cabs together they’re even more amazing! They provide more than enough bottom, and handle a “B” string with ease. They take up very little room and sound huge! The highs are very smooth, with no harshness or brittle edge – very audiophile in quality. The mids are focused, defined and even, with no “boxiness”. The lows are not “thunderous”, but are very present, refined, and well balanced with the rest of the cab. I’ll admit I was skeptical about the capabilites of single 12s, but can honestly say that a pair of these cabs can easily compete with (and beat) most 2-10s (and some bigger cabs)on the market. When you compare their size and weight(39lbs.)to the tone and volume they’re capable of – it’s a no-brainer. Jim Bergantino has set the standard for portable, professional quality bass cabinets.” Tom G.
“Thank you for building the perfect cab. I purchased the HT212 and it is well… perfect. I can’t say enough. I feel its well worth the price tag to finally after 16 years be able to plug in and love the sound of my rig every time. Simply the best. Keep up the good work.” Billy King
“Jim, I’ve had your cabs (the 210 & 115) for a few months now. I have to tell ya like everybody else that they sound fantastic! (sold my Eden 210’s to get yours) My band here in Detroit (formally the “M 80’s” now the “Atomic 80’s”) regularly draws anywhere between 500 to 1800+ people depending on the venue, so I have to rely on your cabs to put out when necessary. I’ve never once had a problem hearing myself on any stage we’ve played on. Might move up to a pair of 310 cabs in the future, I can only imagine what that would sound like!!! We cover a lot of ground musically (we do all 80’s music) and with any bass I play thru them (Sadowsky 5, Warwick Thumb Bass 4, Steinberger 4 and my synth bass rig) they sound great.” Thanks a lot, Mike Fredericks •www.m80s.com•
“Jim, I finally had the chance to try out the HT310. All I can say is I have absolutley no regrets selling the Eden cabs. When I first plugged in my Lakland, I couldn’t believe the balance, clarity and punch of the cab at every volume. The horn never got “hissy” even when turned most of the way up. It’s definitely the sweetest sounding horn I’ve heard! I believe I have some more Eden cabs sold, so it looks like an HT112 is in my near future! Please get a dealer in Cleveland! Jim, the cab’s every good thing I heard and more! Well done!” Bob Miller
“Jim: A little different kind of post. As of now, I have never heard a Bergantino cab. There are no dealers in the Cleveland area (yet). Recently, I have been in contact with many nationally recognized music stores. In fact, I had one store A/B a Bergantino and an EA cab through an Iamp600 and the entire store thought the Bergantino cab sounded much better! Based on all the comments I have received on your cabinets – they must be the best thing going. I have posted threads on several bass sites and the positive comments on your speakers is astounding! Let me point out that I have been playing semi-professionally for 24 years and have never bought a single piece of gear before hearing it (until now). I have ordered an HT-310 and it’s due here next week. I can’t wait! I am already (prior to hearing a Bergantino cab) thinking of putting my Eden 210XLT up for sale and also getting an HT-112. I’ll send another post when I get a chance to play through the cab. Your reputation is preceding some of your customers ever hearing your speaker!” Bob Miller
“I’d been looking at buying a larger cab to supplement my SWR California Blonde, and my wife bought me an HT310 for Christmas this morning. Wow. Just wow. This sounds awesome, even with the totally inadequate amp I’m running into it. I am a very happy owner.” Steve B (Chapman Stick, theremin, bass)
