When I get my LDS cabs we'll have to compare 'em with those Bergs. Bergs are great cabs though! I know the bassist for Plow uses Epifani UL 410 cabs. Those are amazing as well.

You like those Bongos eh? I can't get past the looks... Plus I love my G&L

The Bergs are great, and I dig the look of EBMM Bongos but the sound is what sold me. I owned a G&L ASAT at one point and it never really did it for me. Lucky for us, right now is a great time for Bass Gear. Amps are lighter and sounding better, and there's something out there for every taste. I wish there was semi-decent source for higher end Bass gear in Ft. Wayne, but at least we've got the internet.

Whatzup just did a story on Brad Kelsey and Triple Tornado(just came out today) if any of you want to check it out.

I mean, not only would you get to check out the littlemark but also my Bergantinos. Brad's got this nifty new Budda rig, that sounds amazing. He recently signed an endorsement deal with them and we are actually recording tomorrow at Sweetwater for some kind of podcast to go on their website. 8)

Still a killer amp. Just my personal issues with the Chinese labor practices. I'm not automatically opposed to a company saving $$ by manufacturing over seas, but they should use S. Korea or another country with at least reasonably fair labor practices. China is one of the world's greatest offenders of civil rights.

Sorry, back on topic - Great amp!
