My name is Chris Sanders. I'm originally from Detroit, MI and have worked in the music industry professionally for the last 10 years. I started as an intern in a multi-room studio district in high school. During my tenure, I picked up piano, guitar, and in-depth recording skills and techniques.
While attending Michigan State University, I became immersed in the live music scene and began playing shows as a guitarist and vocalist. I concurrently worked for a local music corporation, Marshall Music Co, for two years. I began as a sales associate before moving to service and warranty. My personal goal at Marshall Music was to raise the level of product knowledge and overall know-how of the sales associates there.
I began freelancing as a sound engineer. I soon found myself running sound for both local and national acts at local venues in town, as well as for churches. Before leaving Michigan, I ran sound for two major cover bands in the area: Avon Bomb and StarFarm
After college, I moved into management at Marshall Music Co., and opened my own home recording studio. I ran a private concert video series called "Park 58 Sessions" that gave exposure to some of my favorite unknown artists.
I relocated to Fort Wayne and began my journey with Sweetwater in April and the rest is history.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

Sweetwater was the next logical step. I have a thirst for knowledge pertaining to gear and recording. I loved the idea of 13 weeks of rigorous training and having access to industry-standard and professional level product lines.

My background in home recording studios, and taking friends from that stage to professional facilities really helps me understand the fear and hesitation that dominate a decision like this.
Chris Sanders is an amazingly good sales technician. He always takes care of whatever I need and makes great recommendations. I have never experienced customer service like he provides in any other capacity before. I wouldn't order from anywhere else!

Excellent customer service, excellent product, excellent staff! I love that I can always reach a live person with questions. I always get individual treatment.
Kathy from Wilmington, NC
Absolutely amazed by the personal service on our order! It is obvious customer satisfaction is a priority. Your company would be the first place we would look for music related items. Great prices, great service and BTW, even the little touch of adding some candy made my kids very pleased! Thank you!
David from Renton, WA
I have to say it's the most personal order I've ever made from the pre-ship phone call, to the email, and finally the candy in the box. Thanks! I don't think I could beat the customer service even in a local shop

From the customer service call after my order, to e-mailing me a copy of the invoice, to the great price, free shipping and candy in the box...a pleasure!
