“I first found Bergantino about 8 years ago. I was in the market for a new speaker and I was looking for the best. After reading countless reviews and information I settled on a CN212 which resulted in some of the best tone I’ve been able to get from a rig. Then just last year after rediscovering my love for the 212 cabinet, I started talking with Holly and Jim. They were kind enough to bring me on their artist roster. I love the clarity their products bring, especially at high volumes. It packs a huge punch without sacrificing tone which I love. Then add to that the Eq tools needed to successfully adapt to a less than friendly room acoustically and you can’t go wrong!”
