I had an M-Audio keyboard with a broken USB connector. The computer wouldn't connect to it anymore. Shane repaired all the damage and got it going again. He also fixed a vintage omnichord keyboard for me. Thanks Shane!

You couldn’t walk into his workshop and not be impressed by his use of space and the meticulous ordering and hanging of parts and equipment. And that adds significantly to the atmosphere of trust that the above factors have created, because if the inside of my speaker looks half as tidy as Shane’s workshop does, I have a feeling it will last long after it should have packed it in.
I had an SE Electronics tube condenser mic in need of repair. There had been significant noise in the signal. Shane sorted it out. Great service to have in Sligo.

My Tele guitar has always been my favourite guitar to play feelwise, but it wasn’t very versatile in terms of tones. That’s where Shane comes in. I dreamed up a crazy pickup mod that involved routing out the guitar and creating a complex wiring layout. Shane went above and beyond to deliver the exact spec I outlined to him.
It’s gone from a two-pickup to a three-pickup guitar like a strat. There’s not a gig this guitar couldn’t do now, not a genre it couldn’t handle. This is one of the best investments I’ve made in a long time, a true guitar for life, and I can’t thank Shane enough for helping to turn my mad ideas into reality.
