Alusonic Aluminium Instruments releases Alberto Rigoni Hybrid signature bass

Italian company Alusonic Aluminium Instruments is proud to announce the release of "Alusonic Alberto Rigoni Hybrid signature bass"!

​"As many bass players, I'm affected by GAS but I'm also pretty eclectic – I'm always looking for innovative and exciting instruments. Based on a new concept, my new Alusonic Hybrid signature bass features an alder body which gives a punchy and full mid-tone, and an Aircraft Grade Aluminium Top that increases the attack of the notes and gives them an incredible clarity. The best bass I've ever had in terms of tone and design! Thanks Alusonic!" - Alberto Rigoni (Solo, TwinSpirits, Lady & the BASS, Kim Bingham, Vivaldi Metal Project)

"I worked hard together with Alberto to create this new model and we are both very excited about the result. Get ready for a new sound experience!" - Polly
