What amp(s) do you use with your Bergantino NV cab(s)?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by TSanders, Aug 9, 2007.


  1. I know that most people use tube amps with these, but Im curious to see exactly what amps TBers are using with their Berg NV cabs.

    I have an NV610 coming soon, and I cant wait.

  3. As do I, well, the NV610 part, but I'm looking into buying the 215.

    I currently run an Ampeg SVP-Pro and Carvin DCM 1000 or HD900 into my NV610.

    I'm flip-flopping about switching to either an Aguilar DB680 or Alembic FX-1.

    Also in consideration is the Markbass SD800

    Stewart World 2.1 power amp. One day I'll try the Crest CA9 - haven't gotten around to it yet.

    As for preamps, one of the following:
    SansAmp RBI
    SWR Interstellar Overdrive
    Ampeg SVP-Pro
    Read Purity

    The past few gigs I've used the NV610 it's been matched with the RBI.

    I use a TFB-550B with mine. No tubes in sight. Pretty much every amp in the "previously owned" section of my profile has been used with mine at some point with results anywhere from good to fantastic.

    I tried a Traynor YBA-200 through it when I bought it and it was very nice.

    I'd love to try another tube amp out with mine and I am keeping my eye out for anyone who wants to trade one for a TF, but the current combo is fantastic and if I never hear another tube head through it I don't feel like I'll have missed out at all.

    Peavey Classic 400
    GK 1001RB-II

    I still own the GK and the Peavey. I have a Trace V4 that I am dying to use with the 610 but havent had a chance to yet.

    Everything works well with the NV 610. So far at least. When I need clarity and low to medium volume the GK gets used. When I want lots of slam and its justified I use the Classic 400. Of all the bass gear I have owned/used so far, the NV 610 has the most permanent spot in my collection.

    So... didnt you have one of these a few weeks ago? When is this one going up for sale? :D
     
  10. As much as Ive missed the first NV610 that I foolishly sold, I hope I can manage to hang on to this one.

    Only time will tell.:D

    You mean the NV610 that I'm looking at right now? :D

    Sorry, had to do it. I switch between a Boogie 400+ and a LMII. Make sure you hang onto this one, Travis.

    DB750 sounds like the AMPEG killer w/ the NV610. A Crest CA9 w/ an Aguilar DB680 sound killer too! You are going to love it bro!
     
  17. As / my sig..... Fender Bassman 300PRO-NV610 = Beautiful!!!!
    Ampeg V4BH -NV610 = Beautiful & 35lbs lighter! ;-)
    Sometimes a LMII into it also = nice but IMHO nothing compared to the tubes.

    Right now I'm using a GK1001RB, maybe one day in the future (when my playing warrants one and I'm in a band) I'll try a 400+
