Gene Joly EVP, Of Stores, Guitar Center

“I can't think of a better person than you to serve as STM in our #1 store. I am fully supportive of your decision. Please keep me posted as you work through this change.”

Dave Hill Jr. General Manager, Ableton Inc.

“Shaheed is smart, helpful, patient, and great with follow-up. He's been a great link for Ableton Inc. and GC Manhattan and always takes time to say check in. He'd be an asset to any organization.”

Phil Garfinkel Pro Audio Sales/Artist Relations/Product Specialist, Audix

“I met Shaheed when I was traveling the New York Metro giving Product Clinics for Audix Microphones. I was immediately struck by Shaheed's personal warmth, he is extremely engaging and instantly likable; two very important qualities in a salesperson. I was impressed not only by his personality, but also his knowledge of the products as well as his passion for music. I get very excited when I meet someone as passionate about music and musical equipment as Shaheed; it made my job a pleasure that day. Shaheed's passion extends to his playing; he is a very talented guitarist and an extremely good teacher. I'm sure his students leave their lessons fired up to go practice!”

Denis Andelin District Manager, Pro Audio/Keyboards, Guitar Center Inc.

“Shaheed was always willing to get the job done no matter what the circumstances. He is a super-talented musician and that translates well to MI business we're in. Did I mention that Shaheed can sell ice to an Laplander! Good people.”

Gary Karlsrud Northeast/Atlantic Sales Manager, M-Audio (A part of Avid Technology)

“Shaheed Shabazz has a depth of music technology product knowledge that is rarely seen. He understands the process and how to link tech feature to production benefits.”

Jay Morrissey Director of Sales - Key Accounts, Cordoba Music Group

“I have managed chain accounts from the manufacturing side for nearly 10 years - in all my years of servicing, training and working with music retail sales people, Shaheed is right at the top. Bright, warm, sincere, energetic, REAL --- all of those words come to mind. I recommend Shaheed without reservation for anything he sets his mind to do. Period.”
