One Question Interviews: Gino and the Goons

Gino Bambino (Gino and the Goons)

SPB: Walk our readers through your kit and offer insight as to how you arrived at your sizes (shells and cymbals).  

Gino: I have a 1966 set of Champagne sparkle Ludwig drums. It’s not worth much due to the fact they made so many at that time and the shape it’s in now. But the sound is perfect to me. I bought it in the mid-‘90s when I went with a friend to a music store so he could buy a guitar. I bought drums and he didn’t buy a guitar. It’s set up at SunWray studios so no one has to lug theirs for practice. And I love the sound.

I hate black hardware on drums (and guitars)(and automobiles) but one time at my moment of laziness I let a Goon drummer use his personal kit with black hardware for some shows. Ugh. I looked the other way cuz he had a Gino and the Goons logo on his kickdrum but still I shouldn’t have let it happen.

The kit Is a 22”x14” kick. 16x16” floor with a tambourine on it. 14x5 wood Yamaha snare drum. Broken mismatched 15” hi hats with a tambourine on it and one 20” Sabian cymbal. Mostly cuz all my other cymbals are broken. They were 18”.
