WHITINSVILLE, MA – October 31, 2019– Bergantino Audio Systems introduces the newest addition to its Holographic (HG) series, the HG312. Weighing in at only 49 pounds, it is the new “heavyweight” contender for bass musicians.
With its huge,balanced tone, the new HG312 sits perfectly amidst its brethren in the lineup. The sweet, never harsh sounding highs, coupled with a smooth, balanced midrange and low end,deliver a big cab performance in a light and small footprint package. This cabinet performs well above its size and weight. The rear firing 12” speaker provides a sonically charged heavyweight blanket of bass that has to be experienced first-hand.

When Tech 21 sent the original prototype of the pedal to Steve while in rehearsal with British Lion, he had this to say: "The tour...
