    after going to the la bass exchange and playing through a berg 3x10 i decided that was the sweetest cab ive ever played through. my fretless f bass never sounded so good. but... i want a 4x10 cab. i much prefer gigging with a single 4x10. if they started producing a 4x10 with that tone id buy one in a second.
  2. What was wrong with the 3x10? Not loud enough?

    welcome to the Bergie side... ;)

    like cj said, did it not have enough low end? i think they've got plenty. try a 2x12 if you can. might not be punchie enough for a 10" guy like yourself, but the lows are definitely there.

    Welcome to the life of Berg.

    I play through a 310 and for most shows it is plenty. I was running Eden before but the Berg just blows it away.

    Bergantino has some new cab designs in the works, stay tuned.

    They are only a few miles from my house; I know some guys who work there and there are some prototypes loaned out to local players for gig testing.

    Yeah, I heard the same. I also heard the Berg prices may come down a little also. I'm talking like maybe 50 - 100 bucks on a 310.

    Nice cabinets though.

    yeah it is a lound a cab, but theres only so much volume your going to get out of a 3 10's. it just kind of seems like its a 3x10 for gimmicks sake rather than functionality, since its only a little bit lighter than an average 4x10 and its pretty big.

    either way, its still an amazing cab and i might just have to pick one up! i emailed jim yesterday and he emailed me back today and said that they were going to announce a new cab in 4-6 weeks.

    I have a Bergantino 3/10, and it puts out just as much as my Eden 4/10! Cabinet design has come a long way in the last ten years......but if you want more woof.....check out the 2/12:D
