My name is Mike Winebrenner and I'm from Columbia City, Indiana. I have always been interested in music which manifested in teaching myself to play the guitar at the age of 15. While guitar is my main instrument, I've also added bass, mandolin, banjo, drums and piano to my repertoire. I've also been doing live sound since the age of 16. My passion for music from both sides of the board led me to the University of Saint Francis where I majored in Music Technology with concentrations in Recording and Production and Sales and Marketing. During my time at Saint Francis I took several classes such as Music Theory, Audio Production, Mastering and Acoustics. I played in the University Guitar Ensemble all four years of college. Also during my college career I was fortunate enough to intern with Sweetwater Studios and in the Retail Store here at Sweetwater.
I also write and record my own songs from my home. I draw a lot of influence from country, rock, blues, and folk music. In addition to my own music I've worked with pop and metal in the studio.
Two of my biggest passions in life are music and helping people. I enjoy talking about anything in the musical process from writing a song to producing it and performing live. Sweetwater has given me an amazing opportunity to combine both of those passions into one fulfilling career!
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

Please provide credit for this sale to Mr. Michael Winebrenner. I have been working with him over the past week but wanted to take advantage of tax free weekend for Massachusetts. I will be following up with him after placing this order. He has been absolutely fantastic to work with and I will continue to use Sweetwater for all of my equipment because of him.

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!

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
