Italian bass player and composer Alberto Rigoni [TwinSpirits, Lady & THE BASS, Vivaldi Metal Project, Kim Bingham] is proud to announce a new collaboration with Italian company Alusonic Aluminium Instruments.
Alberto comments: “As many bass players, I’m affected by GAS but I’m also pretty eclectic: I’m always looking for innovative and exciting instruments. I had the chance to try Alusonic aluminum basses and I was really impressed. I never though aluminum could sound so amazing. Well… I was wrong! We are now working on a new bass project [see pictures below]. What I can say for now is that the bass won’t be made just in aluminum… and that the project is focused on getting a superior tone for a competitive price. I’m proud to be in Alusonic family and glad to support my country!”
