Ziv Shalev on SoundBetter

NYC Session and Live Guitarist Spread Eagle, Modern English, Sandra Bernard and more. Reverend Guitars and and Labella Strings artist. Over 15 years recording experience and a variety of specialties ranging from contemporary to classical to heavy metal, amongst others.

Hi there! I am an NYC - based session and live guitar player with over 15 years recording experience and a collection of hundreds of records. I have a variety of specialties ranging from contemporary to classical to heavy metal, amongst others.

Using a state of the art recording studio with top of the line microphones, pre-amps, a large selection of instruments, and an audio interface, I am able to track electric and/or acoustic guitar for your single, EP, full-length album, film soundtrack, commercials, or any other needs.

How this works:
- We discuss the genre and what you are looking for from the guitar portion
- When possible, I encourage my clients to provide a reference to the type of style and sound desired
- Depending on your preference, I can record a single guitar track or multiple guitar tracks to produce a richer sound or stereo sound
- Tracks are then recorded remotely and sent directly to the client

My goal is to work with you and help you create commercial ready tracks for your project. Please feel free to send an email to discuss details. I typically respond within a couple of hours.

Contact me through the green button above and let’s get started! I look forward to working with you and I'm offering %10 off for all new clients!

  2. Review by Anila N.

    We did a trial run for some music that we needed and we absolutely loved Ziv's work. We look forward to him working on the rest of the project as well. Fantastic work so far and very timely deliveries without any delays at all.

    Highly recommend!

    I'm completely new to making music. Ziv was patient and helped answer any of the questions I had. If you work with him, you will be completely satisfied.

  4. Review by Danny

    Ziv is one of kind musician and producer, he played and recoded with my Celtic fusion band at festivals and venues on east coast of USA, a true professional musician, second to none.

  5. Review by Glenn Grossman

    To say that Ziv is great at many things is kind of an understatement.
    His creativity, passion, professionalism and dedication to his craft is truly something that should be experienced by all.
    I have hired Ziv to play in many different musical settings; whether for live or recording work.
    He’s simply beautiful.
    Playing authentically in any style with creativity, passion and musicality makes him a far more valued guitarist and musician than most. His background in music production and mixing just adds to his musical insight when creating guitar tracks.
    Triple thumbs up on all levels.

  6. Review by Jimmy Dowd

    One of the greatest musicians I have ever worked with!! His audio production skills are only second to his brilliant guitar work! He Arranged and produced our 2006 album The Vinyl Stash Variety Bash- which we all couldn’t be more happy with- And he is currently tasked to arrange,produce, sing back-ups and play guitar on our new concept album Healter Skelter The Musical- which is currently being developed for musical theatre- Ziv’s contributions have been priceless!!

  7. Review by Greg Kelly

    Ziv is terrific. He's turn around time is quick and he really nails the sounds i'm after. We've been working together for the past 5 years. He's the guy to go to when it comes to any type of guitar tracks.
