Professional Tracks for Pedal Steel, Guitar, Folk Instruments and more for your Song or Album! for $60

Hi! My name is Ben Waligoske, and I'm a professional touring, studio, and session musician based in beautiful Denver, Colorado. I play pedal steel guitar, guitar, bass, keys, sing/write, and also pick some dobro, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica from time to time. I work both out of a home studio and a larger project studio here in Denver as a player, producer, and engineer, and I love working with artists big and small, from all genres and and backgrounds. I'd love to add any of these instruments to your project!

I keep my rates reasonable ($60 per track, per instrument - but contact me for bulk discounts or custom orders) and offer excellent communication and turnaround on each project I take on, so if you're interested in taking your song or album to the next level and adding some serious professional polish to it - I'm your guy! I will write, record, and deliver high-quality files in any format you choose and am happy to offer revisions until you are 100% satisfied with my work!

I also own or have access to several vintage keyboards (Wurlitzer 200a, Rhodes, Hammond B3/Leslie, Clavinet) and folk instruments (dobro, banjo, mandolin, etc.) so if you want details on any of those instruments before booking your project, don't hesitate to reach out!

Most guitar sessions are done with Royer or AEA Ribbon mics, Shure SM57s, Sennheiser 421s, etc. into high-quality API or Neve-flavored preamps, running into an 1176 Compressor. Universal Audio and Soundtoys plugins and Pro Tools finish the job! I deliver ready-to-mix WAV files up to 96khz/24bit, both with and without my FX processing (as requested) so you can mix to your hearts content using my plugins/outboard gear or your own!

    Ben is absolutely great to work with. He was very responsive and timely and latched exactly onto what I was looking for. I'm super happy with the result and definitely recommend him!

    Beyond Good. Only negative to come from these tracks is that I didn’t find Ben sooner! Thanks so much!

    Wow!! You are goooood! Thanks so much for your amazing work. Can’t wait to hear the next track! The album is a slow project so forgive me if it takes a while to get some mixes to you but the demo sounds great and I can’t wait to let my producer loose on the tracks you’ve given!

    I couldn't be happier working with Ben – he has an amazing ear to take your song to the next level with beautiful pedal steel and other accompaniments. Turnaround is fast, but more importantly, he collaborates with you closely to give you the sound you were looking for. It's connecting with musicians like him that make AirGigs a truly unique service.

    Thanks Ben, looking forward to working with you again very soon!
