Back and better than ever, the celebrated forté HP series has returned with its second iteration, the forte HP2. Compact and lightweight, this new addition to the series gives bass players even more reserve power and customization right at their fingertips with its simple and easy to use controls.
The Bergantino forté HP2 is a power-packed, highly customizable, modern marvel of Class D bass amplification created with the gigging bassist in mind. This lightweight and portable unit (weighing in at 6.5lbs) delivers a remarkable 1200 watts of power with unprecedented clarity and articulation. 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 forté HP2 allows players to dial in their ideal tone with meticulous precision given the easy- to-use controls on the face of the unit including a 4-band EQ, Variable lowpass (Vlpf) and highpass (Vhpf) filters, Gain, Drive, Punch, Bright, and Mute. 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. These thoughtful and encompassing design innovations are part of what make Jim Bergantino’s most powerful amp creation the quintessential tool for every bassist.
Offering unparalleled headroom, razor sharp clarity, and the power to move air and let your notes be felt, the Bergantino forté HP2 is the ultimate amp for every player looking to take their tone to the next level.
