The latest iteration includes an OLED display, clean/dirty blend control, and software speaker impedance matching.

In late 2015, Bergantino Audio Systems launched the original B|Amp. This award-winning, groundbreaking and revolutionary bass amplifier broke the mold, gaining a host of awards and accolades, not only from the industry, but from the bass playing community worldwide.

With the launch of B|Amp Mk2, the updated model gives the modern bassist even more tools for their sonic armory. Time never stands still, so founder and head engineer Jim Bergantino has taken all the goodness from the original B|Amp design and brought it forward, not only updating its look with a gorgeous new OLED screen, but also adding new and powerful features in the process; such as serial and parallel compressor options and a clean blend for the drive effects. Much of the updates have been based on players' feedback and suggestions.

Jim Bergantino shares: "We are never satisfied with the status quo and are always looking for ways to advance the bass amplification industry. While this theory guides us, input from players has also played a critical role in assisting us as to what features are needed to help make the B|AMP the ultimate working musician's toolbox."

Perfect for the studio, rehearsing at home, recording or playing live, the highly-advanced B|Amp Mk2 is incredibly flexible and delivers maximum performance in a lightweight, compact, yet intuitive package.

More than suitable for electric, electronic and amplified acoustic bass tones, B|Amp Mk2 plays well with any genre of music. With its 800 W RMS output, unique Speaker Profile System, 4-Band Multi-function EQ, Programmable Filters, built-in Chromatic Tuner, Variable-Ratio Compressor and BFT Drive Effects, it truly is a chameleon in the world of bass amplification.
