New Bergantino forté HP$1,399.00
1,200 watts of Class D power in a 6.4-pound head! Even if it had no other virtues, that right off the bat puts this amp in contention. But it’s a Bergantino, so of course it has almost too many virtues to list. Fantastic Bergantino Smart Drive distortion circuit, parallel compression, variable low-pass and high-pass filters, 4-band EQ, FX loop, pre or post-EQ direct out, optional Bluetooth footswitch, USB port for software upgrades, and did we mention it’s 1,200 watts RMS into 2 ohms, with more dynamics and punch than you’d think was possible. Rack-mountable, built with premium components and superb engineering in the great state of Massachusetts.
