A sealed cab with tighter and more immediate bass response.

Whitinsville, MA (December 22, 2016) -- Bergantino Audio Systems announces the NV212T New Vintage Series 2-12" & Tweeter Bass Guitar Loudspeaker (ProNet price $1079 USD). The NV212T is shipping mid-February 2017.

The NV212T cabinet is sealed (rather than the traditional ported design) which provides a tighter and more immediate bass response. The cabinetry used for the NV212T employs a precision tuned cabinet architecture and the enclosure is built with the finest 100% Baltic birch plywood. The NV212T is covered in traditional tolex for durability and employs a rigid black grille to protect the drivers. A unique tweeter matched with a custom phase-coherent crossover network extends the range of this cabinet to 12KhZ. The NV212T has a tweeter level control on the back and turning the tweeter all the way off removes it from the circuit, so if you want the old-school vibe–no problem. With the tweeter on, this cabinet can be a slap monster to match high-output demands. With the tweeter off, just great low end and midrange goodness.

The NV212T is a great choice for both flat wound and round wound players for rock, classic rock, and funk or if a player needs a cabinet to cover a broad range of music styles. It is extremely open, and has a high degree of articulation in the upper mids and top-end. A pick player with a tube amplifier may reduce the tweeter level to allow the 12” drivers to provide warm grind with round wound strings, but half-way up (flat setting) should be just right for finger style playing when a lot of articulation is needed. The NV212T easily replaces your worn 4-10” or any of the vintage 2-12” cabinets and provides an attitude, higher power handling and increased clarity and focus. If you already have a Bergantino Audio NV412/NV412T, this is the perfect way to keep that same great sound in a lighter, smaller footprint.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
