In the early days, I got caught in the trap of buying equipment I just did not need. Every errant purchase was a setback

Chuck Sailer, owner and founder of Down Home Sound, is an audiophile of the highest order. He eats and sleeps pro-audio. For years Chuck has built commercial and home recording studios with varying degrees of success. Chuck Sailer told us: “In the early days, I got caught in the trap of buying equipment I just did not need. Every errant purchase was a setback. Over the years, as I learned my craft, I learned to see past the hype of slick marketing and loaded promises. After years of frustration with “Big Box” music stores and the hands-off approach most online music stores take, I decided to launch Down Home Sound.”
In addition to pro-audio, The GRAMMY Recording Academy Member Chuck Sailer, is also an accomplished software professional. Chuck Sailer continues: “I have been architecting and building cutting edge, world-class ecommerce sites for years for major retailers, including some very well-known music retailers. I see what the owners of those stores do, they aim for the middle. They slap products up on the sight and focus their attention on collecting our personal information for future promotions. I am not saying that it is necessarily a bad thing; I am saying it is cold. Especially when it comes to specialized; sometimes very personal pieces such as studio monitors, audio interfaces and/or microphones.”
In addition to offering pro-audio products for commercial and home studios, Chuck Sailer is a big believer in the idea that music, in all its forms, is an essential part of the human condition. “Down Home Sound has many missions. Obviously, we want to offer our customers a personalized experience when making a pro-audio purchase; however, there is more to our mission than that. I will keep Down Home Sound involved in promoting music education in our schools and communities by working with the most well-known musical charities like VH1’s Save the Music and MusiCares. A portion of all proceeds gained on Down Home Sound will go to these and other organizations that champion musical causes.”
Down Home Sound has launched its first phase complete with such manufactures such as Avid, RME, Steinberg, AKG, and others. Additionally, Down Home Sound offers buyer’s guides and conducts in depth interviews with audio professionals.
