Bergantino forte

Recommended Posts

At 1200 watts it will have a fan. I would put money on it being as silent as a fan could be. Jim Bergantino "road tests" al his gear before it is launched and a noisy fan would be picked up pretty quickly.

Again at 1200 watts I would imagine this amp isn't intended to be played at home. Fan noise on a gig isn't an issue.

I know the new Epifani UL901 isn't as powerful (1000 watts as opposed to 1200 watts) but that doesn't have a fan so I hope it's possible that the Forté HP might not have a fan.

I like to use the same amplifier at home and at events so no fan is something important for me.

I too use a Bamp and it runs almost silently - I've not noticed any fan noise whatsoever (the DB750 on which the Bamp sits is another story entirely).  As indicated above, I'm pretty sure that JB would pick-up on, and eliminate, any noise issues very quickly.  The new Forte HP may not have some of the versatility of the Bamp but in terms of pure slam, if that's what you need, it's probably a very good option
