Gal Gershovsky on SoundBetter

Drums are my Passion

Drums are my passion. I love collaborating with musicians, learning about their goals, and helping them achieve their dream sound.

My name is Gal Gershovsky. I am a drummer and producer from NYC with over 30 years experience in session and live music. I have recorded on hundreds of albums and currently own a state of the art drum recording studio in which I have 24/7 access.

With multiple kits and a variety of drums, microphones, and preamps, I can provide an eclectic drum track for your song or record. I record in the highest quality, provide anywhere between 8-22 audio channels including room microphones.

I will work with you until you are 100% happy with the product and guarantee fluid and fast communication.

Typical turnaround time is 48 hours.

I am looking forward to hearing your song.

    Can't get enough of Gal And his incredible grooves. He sends an extensive array of tonal options to choose from,( via multiple mic's and mic placement) which makes fine tuning the sound of his kit to yours song easy as 123! Can't say enough about his perfect communication and ease to deal with. I have worked with many award winning drummers over the years, But I keep coming back for more over here! So if you're on the fence About drums, Don't be shy just give Gal a try!

    Gal nailed this 80's inspired track. He offered four different takes and each one was a unique interpretation of the track. I can say enough good about this friendly awesome man and drummer! If you're on the fence of whom to use on you're project, Just use Gal: you won't regret it.

    Gal has absolutely killed this track, Yet again. I cant recommend Him enough. He has the patience of a toddlers teacher. And the communication skills of an advanced professor. He has the ability to understand the terms of a non music man as well as a seasoned musician alike. I assure you, You will be happy with any track Gal works on!

    Gal's profile blurb doesn't say much except that he is a session drummer in NYC. Well I have to add that he is an exceptional session drummer from NYC. I have used online drummers for the past 2 years and he is the best drummer I have been privileged to have play one of my songs. Will defiantly be using him in future.

    Gal is a very accomplished drummer! I've been using loops for many of my productions, as have the studios I've worked with. It was nice to have the 3 live drumming session tracks to work with...they really create a more polished, and less robotic song, with some nice dynamics.

    This was my first time working with Gal, he delivered drums to me for two separate songs and nailed the vision on both right away. He's extremely intuitive and knows what the song needs. Totally took my songs to the next level, I absolutely recommend Gal!
