SHS International to Chesbro Music Company
Founded in 1990, SHS International began primarily as an audio company which supplied and serviced sound reinforcement products to wholesale retailers throughout the Midwest and Southern regions of the United States.
After establishing a repuation for honest and reliable gear in the audio world, SHS steadily evolved into a variety of areas which now includes almost every aspect of musical instrument and accessory item known. Not content to simply follow the masses, SHS International began to create it's own proprietary product brands which, after seeing the need for quality bluegrass instruments in the marketplace, established the Morgan Monroe line of acoustic instruments that has since become a well respected name in the music industry.
SHS continued to branch out and created Indiana Guitar Company, Eddy Finn, Stone Case Company, Stage Mate Accessories and the ongoing SHS Audio line of products that gave musicians quality choices when it came to musical instruments.
Chesbro Music Company purchased SHS and its proprietary brands in late 2019. With over 110 years of experience in the music industry, Chesbro Music Company’s acquisition of SHS International was the first step in re-launching bluegrass instruments into the mainstream. We have overcome challenges and setbacks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and challenges facing our current market. Coming out the otherside, Chesbro Music Co has begun development for new products with great interest from customers.
What started with humble beginnings has now branched out into several global partnerships in the retail music industry that provides musical instruments & products to wholesale dealers and distributors. From physical retail stores, to the vast world of online sales and service, Chesbro Music Company will continue to expand and explore all aspects of musical instruments for years to come.
