An incredibly flexible and lightweight bass amplifier, The Bergantino Audio Systems Forte delivers maximum performance in a compact, yet easy to use package. Using the same preamp and powerful 800w RMS power amp section employed in our ground-breaking B|Amp, the Forte provides maximum tone, headroom and immediate command of your bass signal but is offered in a traditional amplifier package for those players who want simple options and controls.

The amplifier includes a 4-band EQ, a bright switch, variable input gain adjustment, effects send/return, tuner out, dual Speakon outputs, a studio quality DI, auxiliary input and headphone jack for silent practice. The Forte also has our unique on-board Variable Ratio Compressor (VRC), adjustable from a single knob right on the front panel.

Helpful Connectivity Features
The forte features a myriad of connectivity options to suit many situations. Dual Speakon outputs allow you to hook up multiple cabinets without daisy chaining. The built-in studio-quality XLR Direct Output is selectable Pre or Post EQ from the front panel. This is ideal for recording in the studio or just for giving the house PA a suitably balanced line signal to work with. In addition, the secondary Line Output gives another option whether you want an additional Pre-amp output or perhaps want to run the amp to an external tuner.

The front-mounted 1/8" Auxiliary input allows you to hook in your phone, computer or an MP3 player for playing along with recorded music or another line level signal, like synths or drum machines, for example.

Compress Not Depress
The built-in proprietary Bergantino Variable Ratio Compressor (VRC) was designed to take into consideration the compression needs of today's bass players and simply take the mystique out of compression to give you a better tone. We know of no other off the shelf compressor available today which can do what the VRC can do and with such ease of use.

With the Forte's VRC, the compression ratio will change dynamically, essentially adjusting itself to the style and needs of your playing. Set up properly, it will give the player an even tone while attacking those large, over the top transients, without even having to touch a thing on the amp!

EQ and Filter
The Forte features a traditional 4-Band EQ with frequencies that have been chosen to compliment many of bass styles.
Bass: +/- 10dB at 65Hz
Lo-Mid: +/- 10dB at 250Hz
Hi-Mid: +/- 10dB at 1kHz
Treble: +/- 10dB at 3.5kHz

The Bright Switch also allows you to tailor the tone even more, enabling additional presence to your sound (+6dB at 6.5kHz).
