Usually when someone passes news of a shopping experience it’s the negative news that surfaces first.  Curbing that tendency I’m posting today about a retailer I’ve had nothing but fantastic experiences with.

Sweetwater is a pro-audio, instrument retailer based in Fort Wayne, IN.  They can be compared with Musicians Friend/Guitar Center in the products they carry, but the comparison stops there.  Unlike GC, Sweetwater has a knowledgeable, friendly, experienced staff.  They treat their customers with respect and are extremely easy to deal with, even if you have the dumbest question on earth.  I’ve been doing business with them for a few years now and have always talked with the same gentleman, Paul Allen.  Allen never attempts to up sale my purchases.  He’s never pushy or eager.  Actually, just today he dropped my shipping cost on some studio foam without any pressing.

If you’re looking for a good deal with a rare pleasant pro-audio purchasing experience check out Sweetwater.  Tell ‘em Randy Bishop sent you.  Maybe I can get a deal on that C3 I’ve been looking at!
