“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 ••

“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)

“Bergantino cabs are simply the best performing/sounding cabs you can buy. The cash I got from the sale of my SWR 610 stayed in my pocket for all of 15 minutes. I bought the Berg 212 earlier this year and soon after bought the 112. I run the 112 on the other side of the stage: both the keys and guitar player have commented on how much tighter the band is now that they can distinctly make out the bass notes on their side. I’d recommend Bergantino to any bass player who wants to sound good. You’ll kiss your SWRs and Edens goodbye the moment you first hear one.”

“I just ordered a third 1×12″ – the guys on the other side of the stage asked me to run one for them. Also used a 1-12 in the studio this week with my 5 string acoustic upright. The cab handled the low B string (lots of low B’s,C’s & D’s) so well that the engineer miked the cab as well as the bass – the sound of the cab soloed was rich, warm, airy and detailed – you would not expect a cab rated down to 48Hz to perform like this. Plus I already told Jim his 3×10 is like really good chocolate cake!” Steve York
