The new Bergantino forte (pronounced for-tay) bass amplifier is the newest member of the Bergantino Audio amplifier family. The Bergantino Audio Systems forte is an incredibly flexible, state-of-the-art Bass Amplifier, delivering maximum performance in a compact package. The forte uses the same analog preamp and power amp section employed in the ground breaking B|Amp, but with fewer options and control. The forte and the B|Amp have the same great sound, headroom and immediate command of your bass instrument signal, but is offered in a traditional amplifier package.

You will find many familiar features of the B|Amp including 4-band EQ control, bright switch, variable input gain adjustment, effects send/return, auxiliary input and headphone jack, tuner out, dual SpeakOn jacks, studio quality direct output, 2-Ohm operation and universal power supply. The forte also has a unique On-Board VRC (Variable Ratio Compressor) compressor adjustable from the front panel.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreRichmond, British Columbia
I own the B-amp ,not the Forté. The Forté is supposedly a scaled down version of the B-amp with no digital logic or display for those who don't have the extra funds or don't want to deal with the digital features of the B-amp My experience with the B-amp has been incredible so far. Amazing sounding head. I can't see how the new Forté amp would differ. I am so happy that Long and Mcquade are carrying Bergantino products. I own to 112 cabs and the B-amp. I couldn't be more pleased with my sound. If anything, I would like to add a HDN212 cab into my rig and run three 12" speakers. If you are thinking about purchasing the Forté or any other Bergantino products and are not sure, go to and read the forums on the various Bergantino products. The only negative thing I have ever heard or read about Bergantino is that some of the older ceramic driver cabinets can be heavy. Thankfully, that's why they made the HDN lightweight series cabinets.
