Cellist James Acampora on SoundBetter

Leave it to me to compose and record professional strings for your music. I compose and record for cello, violin and viola. I have composed for Volkswagon, Discovery channel, Vulfpeck, and more. I have also recorded in Billy Joel's personal studio.

I record with an AKG c214, AKG 3414 microphone, Shure Condenser Mic, akmoba conedenser Apollo Twin interface, and Pro Tools. I can read any sheet music, chord chart or by ear. I can play many styles, with classical, pop, jazz being my specialties. I can work off of references you provide, and I can record one cello or an orchestra of strings. I can provide you with sheet music of what I record as well. I send .wav files when finished, and mp3 examples.

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

    This is now the third time I've worked with James, and I can say I'm beyond fortunate to have found him on this site! Such a talented classical player, his contributions really bring my tracks to life.

  2. Review by Zachary McLellan

    As always, James' strings brought my songs to life! He was informative, flexible, and very creative - not to mention, very affordable for all of what is included in the process of working with James. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for strings for their project.

  3. Review by Zachary M.

    Recommended if you need professional, affordable and timely strings.
    James worked quickly and efficiently, and is clearly talented at what he does. He provides quite the package for the price, and is very quick to respond - which makes things smooth. He was also very understanding with various revisions, edits and critiques.

    Fantastic musician/recording quality & more importantly a true "Artist". His composing is stellar with much emotion; utilize James as you will be very pleased with the results. Very professional & timely!
