Bergantino CN212 cab 4ohms. Now ***SOLD***
£630
Central london.

Recommended Posts

I got this on here end of last year, and finally found the tone i was looking for. Unfortunately I’m now playing keys and have no need for this, nor the space. So reluctantly I have to sell it to make space and fund a keyboard combo. Got a few marks on it, but nothing major. Also comes with padded fitted cover. 

Here’s description.

The Bergantino Audio Systems ‘Carbon Neo’ CN series of lightweight speaker cabinets nod their head to the traditional HD series but have a different function. These are the lightest speaker cabinets that we make. The precision tuned cabinet architecture and the enclosures are built with the finest lightweight Italian poplar plywood (with Baltic birch baffle boards) selected to our specifications. This lightweight cabinet material (along with the lightweight magnet material) helps reduce the overall cabinet weight. The lightweight carbon covering is used for cabinet cover material and is also lighter than the traditional tolex covering found on most speaker cabinets. A rigid black grille is added to protect the drivers from damage.

The internal components used are extremely high quality and they are of Bergantino design. No ‘off-the-shelf’ parts are used. Woofers with Neodymium magnet material are used for the low frequency section of the CN series cabinets. The Neodymium drivers have a punchier low-end and a very sweet midrange that is placed a little more forward in the sound field when compared to the HD series. Fretless and upright players will often prefer the CN cabinets because of how the midrange ‘speaks’ with their instruments. The CN series cabinets have a high intelligibility tweeter mated to the woofers through a custom designed phase-coherent crossover with a tweeter control. Because of the increased cost of the Neodymium magnet material, imported wood for the cabinetry and the unique covering material, the CN series speakers cost more than the HD series, but may just be the right match for your playing style and weight needs.

Spec: Taken from the Berg website. Ive not weighed this, but it seem pretty close to the spec. Very easy to carry.

2 x 12" Custom Neodymium drivers with 7 oz magnets

High intelligibility 1" tweeter

Custom phase - coherent crossover with tweeter level controlPrecision tuned 100% Baltic Birch cabinet

Power handling - 700 watts rms

2 x 1/4" and 2 x neutrik connectors

Impedance:  4 ohms

Dimensions: 31"H x 18-1/2"W x 15"D

 79cm x 46cm x 38cm / weight: 46lbs/20 Kgs

Not looking for any trades, and cant offer delivery at this stage. Ive just had a hernia op so cant even carry this downstairs as the moment, so buy collects from central london.

I owned this for a short while before trading it for Dave's Fearless F112. I can vouch that it's possibly the very best cab I've had (including Vanderkley, Barefaced, Mesa Boogie and Markbass).

Dave is a top bloke and looks after his kit really well. This will be an absolute treat for anyone looking for a fantastic 2 x 12.

The runaway winner at the South East Bass Bash Cab Shootout a few years back. Up against Barefaced, Markbass, Schroeder, Ampeg amongst many the Berg CN212 was the clear winner.

I have one and it is the best cab I have ever used and by some distance. Have used it in anger and it works flawlessly. Really compact size and light weight. Terrific

For me its been the perfect cab. I love the covering, and the size is just right. Not a small 1x12 that looks lost on a stage, but not an overly large heavy cab that makes me wish i had something smaller. The amount of times ive carried it up and down the stairs (we live on the 3rd floor on an estate) and not broken a sweat is great. Its quite well balanced physically. Its been the only cab ive had in the past few years that i have taken to every rehearsal and not felt i can be bothered. 

Tone wise its also perfect. Not a huge low end like the F112 or BB2 i had, so not a problem on wooden stages, and not overly bright or middy, so easier to tame. Very smooth and even across the spectrum, but still with some character and not sterile or flat.

That was my CN212 although I did send in a couple of postal votes on the day to make sure of victory :0)

Had a few enquiries, including one for £300 😏

Now need to get shot of this asap as i have something else that needs the space, so price dropped a bit. Not desperate enough to lose too much though.

Cheers.  Ive had a few silly offers but nothing sensible. I can understand there isnt much need for live gear at the moment. I’m sure it will be here for a while.

      Amazing clear sounding amp in Mint Condition, as I hope I have captured in the photos but if anyone wants anymore please let me know.
      I am the only owner and this has only been used in a non-smoking, non-pet home environment and never been gigged.
      I live in Chatham, Kent and collection is preferred (observing social distancing and mask guidelines) or can deliver locally.
      Alternatively meet up could be arranged if not too far with some contribution for fuel.
      Model: 212MNT neolite Configuration: 2×12” Neodymium drivers + tweeter Power: 600 Watts continuous power handling Impedance: 4 Ohm Freq. response: 40 Hz – 16 kHz Sensitivity: 102 dB 1W @ 1m Dimensions: H x W x D, 77 x 50 x 41 cm Weight: 25 Kg / 55 lbs

      Various bass cabs (1x12, 2x10). All ready to be gigged. Properly built and tested by a fellow bass player (now sadly deceased) and gigged professionally by him and myself!
      Decent drivers and tweeters (he used a variety of stuff but he was a nitpicker so never crap) with solid wood construction and hardware (he was an engineer as well), plus great power handling and nice sounding (each different sounding but that’s obvious and subjective I suppose). 
      Collection preferred (with Covid care). I’m confident that you’ll be pleased with any of these cabs.
      Priced from £100 plus UK shipping (buyer arranged courier) or collect from Aylesbury, Bucks.
      Approx specs:
      1) 2x10 (in line) - 8ohms, 17.8kg (39.24lbs), speakon connector)
      2) 2x10 (diagonal, metal grill/black screws)- 4ohms, 21.2kg, jack connector.
      3) 1x12 (plain cloth grill)- jack connector, 6 ohm, 12.6 kg
      4) 2x10 (diagonal, metal grill/silver screws)- 18.8kg, 4ohm
      5) 1x12 (sparkling cloth grill)- 6 ohm, 15.4 kg, Jack connector.

      PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
      I sold this cab a while ago, but the buyer founded that there was a rattle at high volumes that they weren’t happy with. The truck bed liner paint that the previous owner used to finish it also ended up sealing the cabinet shut, making it tricky to open up to diagnose any issues, so I collected it and issued a full refund.
      With that in mind, I am dropping the price dramatically to £200 collected, no offers, as I just want it gone. This is a serious bargain on very expensive cab for someone who has the time to open it up and fix the issue.
      Potential trades: Cali76, Helix Stomp, or try me  
      —————
      These are pretty legendary for their projection and for packing a lot of power into a small size. This is partly due to one front-facing and one side-firing 12” speaker, allowing for a more compact 2x12” than you would normally expect. Also equipped with a titanium dome tweeter (which you can dial in on the back).
      Has a sturdy “truck bed liner” paint finish which is easily and cheaply refreshed if you so wish. At present I’d say the cab is in a good gigged condition. It could be restored to immaculate fairly easily with a lick of paint and new corner protectors.
      Speakon and dual jack inputs on the back alongside the tweeter attenuator.
      Collection preferred from London SE3. If you want it shipped, you need to arrange collection. Here are the unpackaged specs:
      Weight 22 kg Dimensions 62 × 46 × 46 cm I have some other stuff for sale here, would certainly be tempted by upward trades for more than one item.

      Markbass Little Mark II 500w head 
      Bergantino CN112 CaB
       Seems I may have overpriced the cab a bit, so will take £600
      Both with covers, both decent condition, a few scratches on each and one small break in the tolex on the bottom of the cab, but all working perfectly. 
      Great little lightweight rig, have gigged it in plenty of medium rooms with no trouble. Just about light enough that I’ve trollied it on the tube to a few gigs.
      Can’t really justify having two bass amps at the moment, hence the sale. 

      Would rather sell together and will chuck in a decent speakon cable and kettle lead. Otherwise £250 for the head and £375 for the cab.
