There are two Chads at AS. I had the opportunity to meet both at the Newport CA show.

Exactly -- that's not Chad Kassem (unless he is sick & loosing weight).

Right. They don't even call him Chad. They just call him Stelley. He does all the gear at AS. If you have gear questions, he's the one to ask for when you call.

I met the whole crew last year when my wife and I stopped in Salinas on the way to Fort Collins, CO. They gave us a three hour tour of the facilities. Great bunch of people.

Stelley fell in love with our car ('11 WR Blue Subaru STi).

Yes, that's not Chad Kaseem, but Chad Kassem has lost quite a bit of weight since 2010.

That Analog Planet needs to be a sponsor of AA?

I know this is an ancient thread, but I have to share today's Acoustic Sounds story. I just got off a 30-minute call with Chad (Kassem). He called me out of the blue to apologize for the snafu where many of us that had ordered the new issue of Santana Abraxas (Mofi One-Step Vinyl) were shorted because Mofi screwed up and didn't honor the AS order, even after Chad offered to pay retail to fulfill the orders.

As I said, we spoke for 30 minutes about music history, albums he was recommending based on my taste in music, how things have changed for him over the years with the advent of internet sales, etc. He's a great guy that obviously loves to get acquainted with his customers. This says a lot about Chad and Acoustic Sounds and just confirms that I will continue to buy QRP records for years to come.

Now, back to spinning records!

Masterlu 11-26-2016 06:13 PM

Steve... good stuff, thanks for sharing. ;)

Cool story. I love to hear about service such as this.

Formerly YB-2 11-27-2017 11:57 AM

Acoustic Sounds is a great place to visit (Salinas, not so much - I generally shoot a couple of matches about 30mi north of there and AS is the only reason to stop). Their recording studios (in a very nicely renovated church in one case) are nice. Plus, Chad's involvement in bringing back quality LPs and great, but little known blues & other performers is much appreciated.
