Gustav Davidsson on SoundBetter

Professional trombone player and sound engineer. I would love to record trombone to your music or help you mix/master. Specialized in acoustic music with a great knowledge and understanding of your music.

Hi,

I'm a Swedish musician and engineer that work with two things; playing the trombone and mixing/mastering acoustic music.

I'm a musician from the start, educated in the most well renowned schools in Sweden as a trombone player, since then playing at numerus gigs and on lots of albums mostly around jazz and other acoustic music. I have always been most interested in acoustic music and have for the past ten year been working with my studio, Studio Glasfågeln. Working with recording, mixing and mastering, mostly acoustic music, around jazz, neo-classical, folk and other.

I can help you with:
- Trombone recording, either from sheet music or improvised.
- Mix and master of your acoustic music.

Here are some examples of my trombone playing:

Here are some examples of my mix/mastering work:

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Best,
Gustav

    Gustav Davidsson has been amazing recording the trombone section for a big band chart I wrote. He went the extra mile using different trombones to make it sound like different players! Great intonation, great timbre and he CAN swing!!!

    Gustav is an amazing trombone player. He just recently added trombone to one of my tracks on my upcoming album. He was quick and easy to work with and I was more than satisfied. Fantastic tone, great feeling and you can hear he is really listening to the music. Everything from performance to recording sounds very professional. Even though his background is in jazz I believe his style of playing fitted really well into my indie/pop/rock Bon Iver-ish kind of music.
