Bergantino has expanded their bass amp lineup with the Forté, which the company describes as “an incredibly flexible, state-of-the-art Bass Amplifier, delivering maximum performance in a compact package.” The unit is a close relation to their B|Amp and features the same analog preamp and power section with fewer options. It weighs in at just six pounds.
The Forté is rated at up to 800 watts at 2 ohms and 700 watts at four ohms. It has a four-band EQ and a Bright switch for dialing in your tone as well as an onboard adjustable Variable Ratio Compressor for controlling your dynamics. Other features include an aux input and headphone jack, an effects loop, and a direct output.
The Bergantino Audio Systems Forté will be shipping this fall with a price of $899.
