Gabriele Balsamo on SoundBetter

Hi! I offer my notes for your music recorded on my 5 octave Adams marimba and on my Majestic vibraphone. Every track will be recorded in HQ with two professional mic LR (Rode MPM5). I graduated in a Music Academy in Italy, I worked in different kind of situation: orchestra, chamber music, but also in pop, jazz and contemporary music.

I'm Gabriele from Italy. I play marimba, vibraphone, cajon, snare drum, and any classical percussion. I graduated at Conservatory of Music in Bari in 2020.
I started to play piano at the age of 4, after that I discovered the wonderful world of percussion instruments and I've been playing marimba and percussions for 8 years.
During my career I had the opportunity to grow thanks to lots of masterclasses and clinics with great artists such as Casey Cangelosi, David Friedman, Ruud Wiener, John Beck, Emmanuel Séjourné, Pius Cheung, Marta Klimasara, Claudio Santangelo, Filippo Lattanzi, Mark Ford and many others.

I'm ready to record the sound you are looking for.

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.

    Gabriele played a vibes part of slow triplets with a very good groove. The recording quality was also beautiful, I am very happy with the result.

    Another project with Gabriele, another set of awesome marimba tracks. He even gave me a couple of takes to choose from with different mallet options... everything was played and recorded perfectly! Looking forward to the next one!

    This was my second project with Gabriele and he knocked it out of the park again! He recorded the part in multiple timbres and provided several great options, all of which were pristinely recorded! Looking forward to the next one. :-)
