Bergantino Artist Dan Africano

Dan Africano is a professional bassist from Denver, CO. Dan shares:

“The forté has been an amazing amp to have on the road so far. It’s got plenty of volume and the tone controls are very simple and easy to use. But the best thing about it is that what comes through the rig is quite simply the sound of my fingers, the strings, and the bass in pure form. With the EQ flat, there’s a tremendous amount of control that I have over my sound depending on what part of the string I’m playing and the tone control setting on my passive P bass. That’s really all I want from an amp – true translation of what I’m putting into the instrument – and that’s what the forté delivers.

About the cabs: “Bergantino makes the best bass gear, period. Nothing compares to the absolute clarity heard from these speakers. Accurate and transparent but large and full at the same time, which allows me to hear exactly what I’m playing with minimal coloration or noise. The ability to hear a more accurate and true representation of what I’m playing makes it possible to connect to my artistic expression a little closer to the source, which is truly a revelatory experience. These cabs are an inspiration.”

Bergantino Artist Kevin Jones

“My Bergantino Audio Systems gear allows me to go from a completely crystal clear sound useful for theater calls with my fretless all the way to a 60s-70s over-driven tube tone that allows me to cover a British hard rock feel. In one gig, I might be needing to go from fuzzed out to modern funk within the course of one set, and with the flexibility of both the cabinets and the B|Amp, I can do it all. You could play the Amp with no special settings and totally flat for the rest of your life with incredible satisfaction, but it’s great to be able to dial in exactly what I need for a particular song. The gear is as flexible and creative as you are.”

“I didn’t realize how unclear my sound truly was until I found this combination of Head and Cabinet, the sound cuts through and can be heard very very clearly. I use a Genz-Benz GBE 1200 and the Bergantino HT322 love it!! I also would like to add that this cabin does as advertised, it truly holds tune and the B string rings out for that low feel and sound.

My friend recommended a Bergantino cabinet with a head that has a true transformer in it, it’s heavy but you can’t substitute power and you know what?….he was absolutely RIGHT!!”

The B-Amp and CN212-It’s easily the best rig I’ve ever owned. I was immediately blown away by the clarity and power of the B|AMP. I bought one of the first models shipped. Beast!”

Bergantino Artist Jason McQuarters

“I’ve never written a product review in all my 25 years of playing- however, I picked up a NV412 a few weeks ago to replace my Mesa 412 cab….WOW! I’ve heard only good things about Bergantino but to experience it first hand is a whole new level. Silky smooth tone but with still enough edge to be perfectly versatile.”

“My Bergantino family keeps growing.. Just added a HD 212 to the fold. Sounds just as mighty as its big brother. Such a huge sound for a small cab. Another amazing cab from the best in the business!!! Congrats Jim, you really do make the best cabinets in the industry. Keep it up!”
