    I was in a music store, saw a Bergantino B amp system, picked up a J-bass, plugged her in and was blown away. I'm curious if anyone has tried their upright though this amp and what was their opinion. ...

    Sorry, no one is able to reply, having been blown away so much that they can't even find their way back to tell the tale.

    There is a separate B-Amp thread.

    Bergantino B/Amp at NAMM

    You might search there. Also a lot of discussion in the berg thread:

    Club Bergantino! Let's See Those Rigs! (this is one of my favorite threads - 400+ pages of "I love this rig!!")

    I heard one of the beta models before they went on sale and was blown away how powerful it sounded through an NV610.

    It might be worth maintaining a separate thread for it here in the Double Bass forum to discuss how all the features pertain to this instrument. (Super hi-fi & flat baseline w/ adjustable hi-pass, notch & "bright", plus 2 or 3 user memory settings - could very well make my DB/doubling life easier...)

    I hesitate to weigh in here as calling me a DB hack would be an insult to actual DB hacks, but I've hacked for @ 10 years and recently picked up a B|AMP to use as a preamp for my rig. I have a laminate Shen with a Full Circle, and have been very pleased so far. All the features work exactly as advertised, and its sounds great to my ears.

    Again, I'm definitely 99% bass guitarist, but the 1% double bassist is quite pleased with the B|AMP.

    I don't break out my upright often but can say that slab, AEG, AEB (fretted and fretless) all sound fantastic. The feature set is ideal. All of these have been through FRFR cabs (Barefaced BB2's and Fearless F110)

    Anyone use this head as a DI for an DI/IEM gig? The Bluetooth foot pedal to mute/tune? Could I replace my pedal board (tuner, DI, drive, compressor) with this?
