My name is Kevin Shaw and I am currently the sole owner and operator of Shaw Audio. I have been a guitar player and amp tech/builder for over 25 years. Thankfully, over the years, I got a lot better at amp work than I did at guitar playing. Since the first time I picked up an electric guitar, I have been on a quest for better tone, and it has led me to repair,modify, and build more amps than I can count. I do all work in-house including cabinets, coverings, and amp assembly. I also work as Technical Director at Encounter Church in Lebanon, TN where I have the pleasure of working with some of Nashville’s best local musicians. I have been married to my wife Amy for 27 years and we have two sons, Isaac (17 year old- guitar player) and Ben(14 year old- bass player). I am a follower of Jesus Christ and try to operate Shaw Audio according to His teachings. http://wilsonpost.com/ramping-up-cms-90299

Kay Vangard combo from around 1969. To my knowledge the first point to point solid state amp I have ever worked on. It’s built with germanium transistors so when it’s overdriven it resembles a Fuzz Face through a clean amp. 15” Alnico speaker has a nice bite. Tremolo is very nice also. This one surprised me a little. #kayamplifier #notatubeamp #fullserviceampshop

Customer: "My amp died last night, I checked the fuse, it's
ok."

Me: There is another fuse in the power jack, it's blown. You probably have a shorted power tube that caused it.

Customer: Do you think I can take care of it?

Me: Probably. First get some fuses. You already have a spare set of power tubes.

Time passes.......

Customer: Do the black tubes unplug?

Me: Those are capacitors.

Customer: I guess I shouldn't be working on this, huh?

Me: Probably not......

A great loss. Aspen Pittman was certainly a big influence on me as an amp builder. He will be missed.

I can’t express how honored we are at Shaw Audio to have had a relationship with Joe Robinson over the last few years. Joe has been in my home, hung out with my sons, eaten burgers off my grill, and played my amps. He’s the best of the best. We’re excited to see how far he goes. Thank you Joe for even considering our services and being a friend.

Working on a couple of Exit 209 cabinets today. It always seems a shame to cover them up with Tolex.
