“I’ve been playing bass for 5 years after a friend showed me how beautiful and important bass can be. He played a 6 string Ken Smith and SWR so I played that combo until I was introduced to Eden a year later. Then I played Smith and Eden and have been playing that for the past 4 years. When I was told to try Bergantino cabs I was snobby and said “There can be nothing greater than Eden cabs. You are wrong”. My friends know I am very, very picky about my tone and I can take months to make equipment purchases. Now I am saying to everyone that was wrong and I am sorry to my friends who tried to make me see the light 2 years ago. This past weekend I went to Bass Emporium in Austin, Tx and played an HT322 thru an Eden Time Traveler 330. OOHH MY GOD!!! With my EQ flat on my Smith AND a flat EQ on the head I heard the most beautiful sound coming from that HT322 cabinet that I’ve ever heard in 12 years of playing music and trying out all the gear I could plug into. The sound had nothing to do with my playing either (I’m not THAT good). After 5 minutes of playing that cab I decided I was going to sell my current Eden Metro/212 cabs for 2 HT322’s. I can’t believe I waited this long to hear something so wonderful. The bass was tight AND warm, the mids just spoke out loud, and the treble was just so clear and full sounding. It is just like the tone that I hear in my head. Now I won’t be able to sleep until I get those new cabinets, but at least I know that I can own equipmemt that sounds like the tone I hear in my head. Bless you Mr. Bergantino, bless you.”
