Bass Guitars & Synthesizers
Gino has been playing bass guitar for over twenty years, including stints in the ubiquitous cover and jam bands of the greater Boston area, and is entirely self taught. Unlike many of his contemporaries, who have switched from electric guitar, he chose the bass because of its timbre and the challenge of exploring the instrument's built-in dichotomy of melody and rhythm.
Influences: He considers Geddy Lee, Jonas Hellborg, and Anthony Jackson as his "major triad", adding Ralphe Armstrong, Mark Egan, Stuart Hamm, and Jaco Pastorius as secondary influences.
Diversions: Founder/President of Net Dot Music, Inc.
Basses: Ibanez SR 900 & SR 500 (Steinberger XQ4 pictured was used on both releases)
