Hi did an amazing job recording guitars to my band Pando , I enjoyed every minute of working with him!
Shahar is a pro!!
Best set up, best work.
I am very happy and definitely will work with Shahar again.
I had a great experience working with Shahar.
I asked Shahar to play in few songs from my EP, I imagined a different vibe to each song, and Shahar nailed it.
He is an excellent acoustic guitar player, and a very special electric guitar player- he brought my song to the next level and kept working till I got to what I’ve dreamed of.
It is very pleasant to work with Shahar, he has his own special touch and you’ll hear it in any genre.
Very very recommended!’
