Bergantino cabs.

  1. Anyone else get a chance to try them out yet, I was impressed with their thick tone and lowend projection, all-in-all fat tone with very little distortion or breakup on the lowend. I liked the 3x10 I tried out.

    Bigfeet,

    When I was shopping for my latest cabinet, it came down to the Bergantino 310 and the Eden D-410 XLT. I already owned an Eden, and was happy with it, thus biasing me a little. Comparing them side by side, both delivered a great tone with my amp set up. If the prices were equal, its likely I would have gone with the Bergantino. However, since it was 15% more expensive than the Eden, I went with the XLT. I've been very happy with the XLT and have no regrets.

    There's no doubt this is a very personal taste thing. It's very possible you might find the extra cost of the Bergantino worth while. Yet given the choice again, I'd probably still go with the Eden.

    Best Wishes,
    Bones
     
  3. I need to get a 3x10.

    I took a drive up to BassNW several weeks ago to try out some cabs. I was specifically wanting to try the 4x10 cabs. I also tried out the Epifani and the Bergantino 3x10. This was through an Eden WT-800.

    Out of all the cabs I tried the Berg 3x10 was my favorite, tonally. I don't like the chrome grill that seems to be kinda sharp on the edges. I would buy that cabinet but I have to have an 8 ohm cab to work with my WT-800, bridged, and I need more power handling capabilities. The Berg cab is only about 10 pounds lighter and not significantly smaller. But if they made an 8 ohm 3x10 then that's what I would have. They are pricey buggers, too.
     
  5. I got to briefly audition the Bergantino 12 last night, and I was very impressed. I may pursue either two of those or one 1x12 and one 2x10 - great flexibility for a range of jazz DB gigs and the ability to really move air for the rock EB gigs.

    The Epifanis are very nice, but they're a bit too silky and hi-fi for my tastes, not to mention expensive. Great boxes, though.

    As I have said before, when one of these expensive cabinet makers comes up with a cab that fits into your pocket and sounds like a fifteen, two tens, a couple of 8's a 5 and a tweeter and weighs 3 pounds, I'll be the first in line.

    They are all overpriced for nothing significantly different than an SWR or Eden. My preference is smaller is better so I went with EA. I like the sound, they're easy to shlep and they're priced semi reasonably. They're still overpriced for what's inside!!

    To say that any cabinet is "better" than another is just an opinion. To say that they're overpriced is fact (in my opinion).

    Let's stop buying the hype and paying double and more sometimes for the same old thing guys.

    LKaye complaining like usual.:cool:
