The Gimbel Sound Story
Gimbel Sound was registered as a business in 2017 as an extension of our founder Joel's love for audio, music & the arts. Joel Gimbel II has been working in studios and venues around the Bay Area for over a decade. He has spent his life around musicians, attending music events across genres, and participating in various musical projects in his adult life.
In playing music at local venues and beginning recording work over a decade ago, he quickly realized a passion in audio engineering in the world of the arts. He took his interest in audio & gear collection to the next level, in earning a Certificate in Music Recording Technology at Chabot College. There he worked as an audio technician for the Performing Arts Center and later with IATSE Local 16 union in San Francisco, before going on to found Gimbel Sound. This year, Joel is expanding Gimbel Sound's services to the online community! Read more.
