Hi, my name is Tad Shaffer. I joined Sweetwater in June of 2016.
I have had a passion for music for as long as I could remember. When I got involved in church I started playing guitar. I started on our youth worship team and also played with the adult services as well. I have been playing for upwards of 15 years with multiple churches and bands. I have been in leadership roles within some churches within the band and also doing youth ministry. During that time I have had extensive hands on experience with live sound situations and recording.
I have been recording and playing live for the past 10 years. I have recorded in many studios and most recently at Black Bird Studios in Nashville, TN. I have a passion for serving and doing everything I can to make sure you get the gear you need.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

Absolutely amazed by the personal service on our order! It is obvious customer satisfaction is a priority. Your company would be the first place we would look for music related items. Great prices, great service and BTW, even the little touch of adding some candy made my kids very pleased! Thank you!
David from Renton, WA
I have to say it's the most personal order I've ever made from the pre-ship phone call, to the email, and finally the candy in the box. Thanks! I don't think I could beat the customer service even in a local shop

From the customer service call after my order, to e-mailing me a copy of the invoice, to the great price, free shipping and candy in the box...a pleasure!
