Gideon Berger on SoundBetter

With two decades of experience in touring, live shows and recording sessions with numerous rock and punk bands, I am now offering my services via SoundsBetter for anyone who wants a clean, polished, tight and driving drum recording.

My name is Gideon, I'm a drummer from Oakland California.
I've been playing drums for 20 years, mostly in rock and punk environments.
After 20 years of professional touring and recording experience under my belt I am now happy to offer drum recording services from my studio in Oakland, CA.
I have a wide selection of drums - dw Collectors, Tama Steel Drums, Ludwig, Mapex, over 10 snare drums and a variety of cymbals.

I can work with most generes of music and deliver a variety of sounds.

You're welcome to follow my recent work at:

  1. Review by Phil K.

    Gideon is our go to session drummer for both in-person sessions as well as remote sessions. He has a ton of experience and clearly knows a lot about the art of banging sticks on things in a rhythmic manner that best suits the energy and overall vibe of whatever project he's working on. We especially appreciate his spot-on rhythmic performance, obsessive attention to detail and vast collection of drum kits, snare drums and cymbals. Would highly recommend him for any project!
