Bergantino Introduces the forté HP2 Bass Amp

Bergantino forté HP2 Bass Amp

Bergantino Audio Systems has revamped one of its amps for 2023. The Bergantino forté HP2 features more headroom and customization.

The lightweight amp features a Class D power section to offer 1,200 watts while weighing in at just 6.5 pounds. “From deep and rich lows, to warm and cutting mids, to ever-present and defined highs, the new iteration of this series now offers an additional 3dB of dynamic headroom for even more impact on your lowest notes and every frequency on your fretboard,” the company writes.

The forté HP2 has a four-band EQ and variable lowpass and variable highpass filters for dialing in your tone. Other controls include Gain, Drive, Punch, and Bright. “Additionally, you can enable the use of an optional rechargeable Bluetooth footswitch that controls the onboard filters and mutes the amp from up to 30 feet away. You can also update and upgrade the firmware via the front-panel USB port,” Bergantino adds.

Hear the bass in action with a demo by Chicago bass legend Larry “L-Dub” Bass Williams.

The Bergantino forté HP2 is available to order for $1,599.
