Why Choose Sweetwater?

At Sweetwater, we have one single goal in mind: to make you a satisfied customer.

That single focus, driven from every aspect of the company's operation, is the key to our ongoing success. If you're a satisfied customer, you'll come back to us when you have additional gear needs in the future, and you'll tell your friends about us. Then if we can make them satisfied customers, the cycle continues.

Meet Sweetwater's Founder

Everything about our Fort Wayne campus is built to help us serve you better.

Doing the right thing...since day one.

It seems so simple: just make your customers happy!

In fact it takes a lot of hard work to make it happen — but not everyone is willing to make that effort. That very simple concept is the reason Sweetwater was founded in the first place. Since 1979, founder Chuck Surack has committed to "doing the right thing", and this belief is at the core of Sweetwater's identity, ethics, and practice.
