Alberto Rigoni is an Italian bass player and composer, internationally known for his career as a solo artist and as a member of the progressive rock band TwinSpirits, Lady & THE BASS and co-producer of the Vivaldi Metal Project.
His solo albums (Something Different, Rebirth, Three Wise Monkeys and Overloaded, worldwide released between 2008 and 2014), between progressive rock metal and fusion, also feature legendary musicians such as Kevin Moore (ex Dream Theater), Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson), Göran Edman (ex Yngwie Malmsteen), Michael Manring and many others.
"It took just a few minutes to realize that Markbass gear is perfect for my playing.. super punchy, warm and defined." —says Alberto—"I really love the tone you can get mixing the signal of the solid state preamp with the tube one of the Little Mark Tube head: fat and tasty! More over, the whole gear is light as a cloud! I can even bring the STANDARD104HF cab by myself without any problem (and I'm a lazy guy!). Last but not least, yellow is cool! "
We are happy to welcome Alberto into the Markbass Artist family.
I've been working on a killer bass amp with Marco De Virgiliis and his team in Pescara, Italy. Hung out with them this past June and went over EVERYTHING to make sure we got this just right...woofers, tweeters, EQ. I think you're gonna love it. Check this out. MM
