The owner of Sullivan Music Equipment is Rick Yowell, a Texas native with over 30 years of bass playing and electronics equipment building under his belt. Rick grew up in Austin and has played in almost every local bar while making countless friends along the way. It was in 2006 Rick decided he had had enough of the 9 to 5 daily grind, so while working at a local microprocessor company he planned his escape and started building speaker cabinets on the side. In 2008 he left the corporate workforce and never looked back.
Married in 2011, his wife Mary was the inspiration and motivation that encouraged him to start “Sullivan Music Equipment.” Soon after getting married Rick went back to school to complete his Associates of Applied Science degree in Electronics & Advanced Technologies.
Today Sullivan Music Equipment is making Handmade Pickups and the Texas Twister Tube Driver. Early 2014 we will be adding amplifiers, bringing back speaker cabinets, a wider selection of effects pedals. Sullivan Music Equipment would like to thank everyone from friends to family and especially customers for their support over the years.
