Why Shawn is an Ambassador
I have a love for music that goes deeper than just my auditory system. I can really tell what music touches me by the physical and emotional responses. The chill bumps that cover me and the sensations up my spine say it all. I try to find something to appreciate about all music (although some are much more difficult than others). One thing that a truly love, that is hard to find anymore, is a good natural vocalist. Too much of today's music, in my opinion is "digitally enhanced."
One of the few things that I enjoy more than music, is my son. It makes me very happy to see his interest in music even at only three years old. Each night that I tuck him in to bed, he now requests that I put a different cd in his radio to listen to while he sleeps. He also is interested by musical instruments. When I was younger I played the trombone, and he has already told me he wants to learn to play the trumpet. I have already bought him his own harmonica and ukulele to play in the meantime.
Another side of my love for the hobby is self modifying some of my gear. I have done everything from making custom cables, to making a pair of Jaben Alu-modded Grado's, and even done some dampening mods on a pair of headphones I bought for my son. I look forward to some day building kit headphone amplifiers.
We Love Shawn because...
Shawn is a prime example of how music can move you. That is why Drew and Nichole started Moon Audio and what drives our business today...our passionate love affair with and for music that transcends that of just a physical response. We also LOVE that he customizes his own gear and is encouraging his son in his musical endeavors. Keep that up, Shawn. We want these younger generations to be just as passionate about audio as we are.
