-Hyper-Powered Lightweight Bass Amplifier-Learn More
The Bergantino forté HP takes bass amplification to a whole new level of performance. Just like an 8-cylinder vs. a 6-cylinder engine, the new 1200 watts of ultra-reliable, Class D power offers unprecedented “slam” in a lightweight, portable package.
Jim Bergantino, never content with the status quo, designed the forté HP for the player who requires massive headroom and control over his or her tone. It delivers a formidable sound with ease, combined with an unprecedented level of comfort and confidence. This amp harkens back to the classic lead sleds that players have been longing for, an incredible thump without the weight…it has to be experienced!
The new Bergantino forté (pronounced “for-tay”) bass amplifier is the newest member of the Bergantino Audio amplifier family. The Bergantino Audio Systems forté is an incredibly flexible, state-of-the-art Bass Amplifier, delivering maximum performance in a compact package. The forté uses the same analog preamp and power amp section employed in the ground breaking B|Amp, but with fewer options and control. The forté and the B|Amp have the same great sound, headroom and immediate command of your bass instrument signal, but is offered in a traditional amplifier package.
You will find many familiar features of the B|Amp including 4-band EQ control, bright switch, variable input gain adjustment, effects send/return, auxiliary input and headphone jack, tuner out, dual SpeakOn jacks, studio quality direct output, 2-Ohm operation and universal power supply. The forté also has a unique On-Board VRC (Variable Ratio Compressor) compressor adjustable from the front panel.Learn More
The Bergantino Audio Systems HDN (High Definition Neo) series lightweight speaker cabinets retain the great Bergantino Audio sound and give you the weight savings but not at the expense of tone and performance. These are the finest lightweight speaker cabinets made. The precision tuned cabinet architecture and the enclosures are built with the highest quality lightweight Italian poplar plywood (with Baltic birch baffle boards) selected to our demanding specifications. This lightweight cabinet material (along with the lightweight magnet material) helps reduce the overall cabinet weight. The exterior of these speaker cabinets are finished in a durable bronco tolex covering for long life and cabinet protection. A rigid black grille is added to protect the drivers from damage and to minimize the coloration and tone reduction found with a cloth speaker grille.
The internal components used are extremely high quality and they are of Bergantino design. No "off-the-shelf" parts are used. Our new design Neodymium magnet woofers (unique to the HDN) are used for the low frequency section of the HDN series cabinets. These Neodymium drivers have a punchy low-end and a very sweet midrange that is placed a little more forward in the sound field when compared to the HD series. Fretless and upright players will often prefer the HDN cabinets because of how the midrange "speaks" with their instruments. The HDN series cabinets have a new design high intelligibility tweeter mated to the woofers through a custom designed phase-coherent crossover with a tweeter control. Because of the increased cost of the Neodymium magnet material and imported wood for the cabinetry, the HDN series speakers cost more than the HD series, but may just be the right match for your playing style and weight needs.Learn More
