A Visit to Bergantino?

Postby harleyyy » Wed Mar 25, 2015 7:43 pm

I'm going to be about a 1/2 an hr North of Bergantino Systems on a business trip. I'm going to see if I can set up a meeting with Jim if I can get down there. Might be sharing a rental with a co-worker. We'll see.... [smilie=cool-smiley-031.gif]

"Hi there, I am Peter Dapello from BadAssBassPlayers.com. I have a work related trip coming up in Marlborough next month. I was wondering if I may stop by and introduce myself and what we do and what we've done if possible? I arrive around the 11th and will be there for 1 week. Thought I'd check!
Thank you,
Peter Dapello

I've been to Jims shop many times but that was a lifetime ago - I helped him with the eq curve of the original IP112. Great guy and an amazing engineer.

Be sure to give a report on that new modeling amp he has! Looks way cool, but have not heard it yet.

It appears my co-worker and I will be sharing the rental, but I have a good friend who lives 20 minutes from where I'll be, and he has a Harley FXR waiting for me. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif] . Hoping to make it!

Ah well...

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the email. With the machinery, docks and trucks we are not set up for any tours or factory visits I would recommend contacting any of our dealers that are local to you and they can show you our product line. When you are in the Boston area, South Shore Music would be the closest.

Let me know if there is anything that I can do to be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

John Files
