In spring of 2017 Shannon fixed my Blue Mouse mic for a reasonable price. He told me he could completely re-do a mic to give it more of a 251 sound, which he thought was the best mic ever made. So I had him do that to my K2, which he did, and tuned it for my voice, for $900. It sounded great. I didn't think about him much until I drove by his house in January of 2020 and saw a for-sale sign. I was sad, so I searched the internet and found out Shannon had gone AWOL. Curious, I checked the real estate records and saw the house had been owned by Fatina Rhoades in Pennsylvania. In 2017 he seemed to be living with a young 20-something woman, so maybe Fatina is an ex-wife or sister or something (she's a little older than Shannon by internet people search). I wondered about his middle-aged acne and hyper personality. I'm guessing he has a meth problem. Anyway, that search led me to this forum, in search of a Nashville mic tech.
Apparently Dave Wheeler is that guy. Shannon had shown me his machine in the basement for making his own diaphragms. Did Dave Wheeler buy any of Shannon's gear, giving him the same capabilities that Shannon had?
