Customer feedback


Submitted on the 4th June 2015 by Stjin who purchased a Bergantino HD410 cabinet

Hi mark


The bergantino HD 410 just got in from yesterday.

Been testing it last night and this morning(my poor neighbours)

It’s what i’ve been looking for and  my expectations are fulfilled with this cab.

It’s sounds tight, clear but still also warm, deep with a little nice character.

As a review writer for Meet music magazine that is spread in Belgium, Netherlands & Luxembourg, i had already had a lot of cabs that i tested like aguilar, markbass, tec amp , tech 21,..

Butt when i first plugged into the bergantino i was immediately confident with the sound coming out of these speakers.

It was worth waiting for it and have to say that UPS did a great job to deliver it on time.

I think i’ve found the ideal cab for what i need as a pro/ session bass player.

Many thanks!


Cheers

Hi Mark


Just thought it was about time I got back to you and said how much I am enjoying playing the Dingwall bass through the Genz Benz and Bergantino's I bought from you earlier this year. I've played inside, outside, small and large gigs and they just perform brilliantly. Been playing bass for 50 years now and I can honestly say its the best set up I've ever had. Thanks.

Wow! To say I'm enjoying my new rig is one of the biggest understatements in the history of mankind. I've now used the Shuttle and the Bergantinos for two practices with two different bands and a gig for a third band - and they sound awesome. It is amazing how much I can actually hear which just got lost before (which is not always a good thing I know, but it is helping me improve my playing so much already). 


This improvement in sound has really boosted the sound of the bands which in turn spurs everyone else on. And the sound is even being noticed outside the practice rooms - last night the people who run the rehearsal rooms were asking about the bass rig while we were packing up as they sounded so good in their office. I can't wait to get the pickups/preamp in to keep moving that sound forward.


Thank you so much for helping to open my ears and start to improve my playing in the process.

Hi Mark,

 

I thought I should give you an update on the STM900 / HD112 combination I bought from you a few weeks ago. I’ve used it at home (it’s become my practice rig!), live accompanying an acoustic guitar, and at rehearsal with acoustic / drums. It’s a great combination – and I can’t believe how much clarity it has even when run very quietly. The sound carries so much more ‘weight’ than I was expecting, but along with the weight is clarity so that every little string rattle is picked up, and low slides just sound incredible.

Just out of curiosity, I took the Streamliner into my rock band rehearsal and ran it into my old Trace Elliot 4x10 cabs. It performed really well, has more ‘punch’ than my valve amp, and my guitar player actually preferred it. I still prefer my big valve amp in that situation, but it’s brilliant to have the option. Paired with a Berg 6x10 I think the STM would sound incredible.

I also ran it live where the venue provided (and insisted I used) an old Laney 2x10, and that highlighted just how much difference a new, modern cabinet makes.

 

 

Thank you for spending the time with me. I left with a fantastic, upgradeable system that’s small and light enough to be stolen by a small Vietnamese child on a scooter.

 

I also learned a bunch of things about bass kit in general.

 

Cheers.

 

In the words of Arnie…”I’ll be back!”

Hi Mark

 

Thanks for spending so much time the other day and not getting impatient when I purchased the HD112’s, they are magnificent, huge sound and the clarity that people talk about is amazing.

Even my 5 string Jazz deluxe, sounded great to me but then I think almost anything will sound good though these speakers.


Many thanks

Tim

Submitted on the 28th September 2012 by Phil who purchased a Genz Benz Streamliner 900 amplifier and  Bergantino HD210 cabinets and a Dingwall 5 string bass

Hey Mark,

It's been a while since I bought this great rig from you, but I thought I'd leave the review until I'd gigged it a few times.

All I can say is this combination of Dingwall, Genz Benz and Bergantino (the Holy Trinity), produces the best sound I've ever got from any rig, at any price! There's so much headroom - more than I'll ever need - and so clear and warm without being muddy or harsh. Also, my fingers aren't blistered by the end of the gig!

I get great comments from band members and audience alike, saying they can actually hear what I'm playing.
I've since bought from you a Berg EX112 to go with the 210 - brilliant addition.

Thanks again for the advice Mark,

Phil

Submitted on the 24th September 2012 by Rob who purchased a Bergantino HD410 combo

Hi Mark,

 

Just wanted to say many thanks for the excellent service. I purchased my Bergantino HD410 on Tuesday and it was delivered on Wednesday. Sounds very clean and precise. Loud too! Sounds great with any of my various amps. Band members are very impressed. Passive or Active, it doesn't matter, superb with either.

 

Thanks Mark, Rob

 

ps. The HD410 sounds great too with a decent 1x15 alongside.



Submitted on the 8th September 2012 by Steve who purchased a Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2MAx amplifier and  Bergantino HD112 and HD210  cabinets with Auarlex gramma pad.

Hi Mark,
Sorry its taken me all this time to write to you but I've been so busy and also wanted to get to know the equipment more.

First of all thank you for all the help, your advise was first class.

The rig is out of this world, so compact and its looks amazing and very classy, the shuttlemax is a dream come true and now that I have made a few minor tweaks I just let the natural sound of the instruments shine through (and they do) also I don't think I've have the volume above number 3 yet (so much power).

The bergantino are awesome, extremely compact and well constructed with such a sweet sound and plenty of umph, they aren't the lightest cabs but they are built to last.

As for the Auralex Gramma, its now a constant in my equipment list. I cant believe how much it helps, not only does it help with the awful boominess we cant get from stages but it lifts the cabs up (much better than a beer crate).

I cant tell you how over the moon I am with my purchase and although it was expensive its worth every single penny

Kindest regards

Steve

One thing to note about the HD410 is that its not a very "voiced" cab. I mean... every cab has a voice, sure - but this cab changed drastically with every head I tried with it. It's a very neutral sounding 410 which is a good thing IMO.


If you put a fat tubey sounding head in front of it, thats what you'll get. A quick SS head - thats what you'll get. I've found if it does add any "voice", it would be a full "big" sound, with a bit of a bump in the upper mids for added definition. Its also not tuned super deep, so its a punching box, but a "full sounding" punching box.


Submitted on the 12th March 2012 by Glynn Murray who purchased a pair of Bergantino HD112 cabinets and a Genz Benz Streamliner 900

Hi Mark, just got round to letting you know how pleased I am with the GenzBenz Streamliner 900 and the two Bergantino HD112 cabinets.  I have only needed to use the one cabinet out so far with great results. The headroom is comforting and audience reaction to the sound is "what a lovely sound" which is all we bass players need to know after our own (many) personal hours of researching, asking about and trying out gear.  I would describe it as having' weight' to each of the notes that I play with a pleasant warmth. As you know I use an Alembic Orion so can get a good sound out of virtually any decent amp but this is different.  I am using my bass guitar settings flat now and with minimum adjustment from flat on the amp - this gives loads of flexibility.  I can only see the need to use the 2nd cabinet if I was needing more sound distribution in a (much) louder band or maybe just to have my sound a bit nearer to me in gigs where I stand up all night in front of the rig - even so at 20kg per cabinet, it is hardly a heavy lift.

 

A personal word (or six) of praise for Mark who seems to know within a very short space of time what sort of player you are and what gear will suit. Although he is a very good salesman and running a business, I never felt pushed into making any decision and, if anything, felt steered away from a clearly unsuitable option.  Surely he must tire of being asked the same stupid questions from paranoid bass players? - apparently not!  Good luck to you - nice to have an understanding professional bass ear available when needed.

 

Regards,

 

Glynn Murray

Hello Mark ,

 

Hope all is well.

 

The Bergantino HD 212 is a killer , I think I will have to lift it somewhat on a case but the sound is very clear and direct!

 

Thanks ,
