    The Sadowsky cabinets will be available in the US within the next 2 weeks. This is a joint venture between myself and Jim Bergantino. Jim designed the speakers for improved efficiency to work well with moderate wattage amplfiers, and specifically the Sadowsky SA200. We are offering a 4x10, 2x10, and 1x12. They are available from all Sadowsky and Bergantino dealers.

    Hi Roger,

    Any thoughts on using this amp dual-purpose, as in guitar also?

    Thanks

    Will the SA200 continue to be direct only or will it be availible in stores like the cabs?

    Some stores are either already stocking the SA200, or will have one very soon. Check with John Files at Bass Emporium.

    Also, for those who may have read the older thread wherein it was discussed that the Sadowsky 2x10 was basically a rebadged Bergantino HT210S (which I believe was true), I just wanted to pass on that the Sadowsky 2x10 now is its own configuration and uses different drivers than those used in the HT210S, as does the 4x10. Jim and Roger both sound very excited about these new cabs. Sure, a manufacturer is always going to be excited about new product, but having talked to boty Jim and Roger, it does seem to be that these new cabs really strike a positive nerve with each of them.

    I can't wait to hear them myself! If they are at all in line with what I have been hearing from the SA200, we are all in for a treat! :D

    Is the 410 a berg design? Better yet... what do you know about the 410?

    Yes, it was designed by Jim Bergantino specifically for Roger Sadowsky, and while I am sure it will sound great with a variety of heads, Jim definitely made sure that it would pair up well with the SA200. It is my understanding that the cab should be very punchy, full, throaty, and articulate.

    Like other Sadowsky products, I assume "list" = "actual?"

    (these prices are cited as "list" prices at Bass Emporium site)

    Great cabs. I like my 410 more each time I play through it.

    There is no Bergantino 4x10. What 'normal Berg' are you referring to?
