My name is Justin Sunday. I came to Sweetwater from Norfolk, VA to chase my love for all things gear. I have spent the last 2 years as a live sound engineer, working for everyone from local musicians to Styx, Plain White T's, Blue Man Group, Victoria Justice, and most recently, Bret Michaels. I also have had my hand in the recording realm for a little over 5 years now gaining experience with every piece of gear I could get my hands on.
I'm a guitarist at heart, but I love to learn about all other instruments and you may sometimes catch me playing the accordion or didgeridoo in association with many other "normal" instruments.
I stay up to date with current gear through AES, trade shows, and all your favorite audio forums. I love troubleshooting and making sure all your gear is working the way it should the first time. With all my experiences, I am confident that I can assist you with all of your musical endeavors big or small, and I can assure you that I will find the best products to fit your needs.
Give me a call and let me know how I can help!
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

I have a bachelor's degree in Music Business and Production with a minor in Marketing from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA.
I technically had three jobs before Sweetwater. I was a live sound engineer for Craftwork Sound in Chesapeake, VA, a lighting technician for Illuminations Innovations in Chesapeake, VA, and a freelance recording engineer in the Hampton Roads area.
I have been a Sweetwater customer for a long time. I loved helping my friends find the gear they needed and I had fun doing it. I wanted a career in helping fellow musicians find the gear they needed, so I came to Sweetwater.
I have been a Pro Tools user for about 7 years now and during that time have gained an extensive knowledge of plug-ins and software instruments. I am familiar with most analog and digital live audio rigs. I also know my way around many different instruments.

When not doing anything musical, I enjoy modern art. I have visited the Tate in London and various other museums here in the US. Some of my favorite artists are Dali, Magritte, Ginsberg, and Pollock.
In high school, I really wanted to become a film score composer. My favorite composer was Danny Elfman.

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!
