This led to building and operating his own commercial recording studios and rehearsal facilities in central California. His experience made him a valued producer and Ed served as an independent producer and audio engineer for a number of record labels during the late 80s and early 90s. By 1993 he established a live sound division supplying sound reinforcement for a host of the most popular artist of the era.

Over the last 15 years Sandor Sound Services has engineered some of the most high profile live productions in the business for concerts, theatrical performances, worship and corporate events with an impressive range of clients, from The Radio City Christmas Spectacular to Artist Andy Williams’ worldwide tours.

Sandor Sound Services has been called on to design sound systems for some of the largest theatres in Branson, including The Grand Palace Theater. Sandor Sound has also designed systems implementing technical solutions for amusement parks such as Celebration City & Silver Dollar City and public school districts and universities, including the University of Oklahoma.  Today, Sandor Sound concentrates on consulting, designing and selling modern sound systems for theatrical, house of worship and other small to large facility use.  Sandor Sound has often been quoted in industry trade publications and has appeared in Pro Sound News.
