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.”
