“You can’t get better than the one-stop service and dependability we have received from Sandman Sound over the past four years. They have gone above and beyond for us on multiple projects in our Heritage-listed Church, including the installation of a completely new sound system (with speakers and a mixing desk), security cameras, lighting, a projector and the facilitation of other specialists to perform extraneous functions (such as building a stage platform and moving a century-old organ to a new position). Where we had concerns about the safety of our speakers being damaged during onsite activities in the Multi-purpose Hall, Sandman personally custom-made protective cages to safeguard them, and also set up a live streaming system to ensure our church services and other gatherings (such as funerals) could be heard and seen, especially during the COVID-19 period where social distancing has been ever-so important.
We cannot fault their dedication to being so efficient and flexible, not to mention their willingness to give advice where a better solution to fulfil our needs could be put in place. In the past we’ve experienced trades who lacked the experience and foresight to look for alternative ideas to keep the aesthetics of our building and our needs aligned, and Sandman Sound has truly delivered the highest in quality work and better options than we could possibly have imagined. Our Board is happy, our congregation is happy, and we are delighted with their tailored, knowledgeable and personable approach. Obviously, we have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his team to other churches because they deliver exceptional service on so many levels.”
– Shaun Siriweera, St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church, Surrey Hills (2020)
“The support and reliability we’ve received from Sandman Sound has been exceptional. Their fantastic approach is always helpful and honest. Our school sound system required much needed upgrading on two occasions and their reactive and friendly service quickly demonstrated that they knew what they were doing. Further, they took the initiative to follow-up both service calls with assuring contact to make sure we were happy. We were delighted to find that the company team, as a whole, is consistently obliging, so much so that we now feel complete trust that a quote is unnecessary for future works. Knowing that they’ll arrive when they say they will, find the solutions we’re after, and do the job properly has given us enormous peace of mind. Our classroom announcements and amplifiers now function very effectively, and we won’t hesitate to call on them again as our needs arise. Highly recommended!”
– Carrie Chalmers, Assistant Principal Park Ridge Primary School (2020)
“Sandman Sound are very professional and very reliable. The excellent, inside/outside sound system we now have at Keysborough Bowls Club is of good quality and it definitely suits our members needs for daily activities and competitions. Simon shared his expert and honest advice with us readily, and we were delighted to find an audio system to suit our budget as well. The Sandman Sound team are very friendly and easy to work with, and we highly recommend their services to others.”
-Sue Jones, Keysborough Bowls Club (2019)
“The responsiveness and professionalism we’ve always experienced, from Sandman Sound, has always been of a very high level. We’ve engaged their services for the new installation of speakers, sound audits, and any issues we encounter within Our Lady of Mercy College. They have assisted us with friendly advice regarding aspects of our sound coverage that require improvement, and never hesitate to take care of our requisites with maximum efficiency. Simon and his team are friendly and co-operative in every respect, which is why we’ve been very happy to rely on their expertise for approximately six years. With Sandman Sound, nothing is ever an issue!”
– Brett Mather, Our Lady of Mercy College, Heidelberg (2018)
“In a word, Sandman Sound is exceptional! They listened intently to what we needed and how we wanted it to work, and we’re now particularly delighted that our church has a first class, centralised sound system using one Amplifier that can now be isolated to certain areas when we need to contain Ministerial addresses, music and other announcements – including outdoors.
Quoting our particular job was complicated for Simon and his team because we had an old system that had been added onto several times in the past. The quality was inferior and the microphone system required all of those who spoke into it to have to almost swallow it to be heard. We now have a fantastic new ‘gooseneck’ microphone in our pulpit and a high quality set of speakers, which ensures that everyone in the congregation can clearly hear what’s going on.
Simon and his team were very enthusiastic about meeting our requirements, and what’s more they made it happen with a minimum of fuss. They were prompt, they demonstrated they were very good at their work and we had complete trust in allowing them to work independently in areas around our church. We continue to engage them for their conscientious attitude to other electrical works also. What makes them stand out is that they understand Church operations and are fully prepared to quietly attend to their work regardless of what other activities are going on in our rooms, and directly around their working area. We are exceptionally happy with their personalised and professional service.”
– Maurie Barton, Bentleigh Uniting Church (2016)
“Simon and his team are punctual, honest and thorough in their work, and have delivered excellent service to us when it comes to both Sound and Electrical works at Our Lady of the Way Parish. We particularly appreciate their capacity to listen to our specific needs and requirements carefully, and then problem solve to find the perfect solution. For example, we had issues with our remote control not being able to permeate our internal concrete walls. They rose to the challenge and found a way to ensure that the remote signal worked in the way we wanted it too, despite the fact that remotes are not always that flexible in ordinary circumstances.
Sandman have made our new sound and electrical equipment as simple as possible to use, and we’ve always been given the very best in onsite operational training – and if we do have a problem of any sort, they’re always available to provide us with assistance. From pricing and support, to the delivery of high quality equipment, and their friendly and helpful nature, we think they’re just perfect!”
– Father Terry Bergin, Our Lady of the Way Parish (2015)
“Sandman can’t be beaten on value for money pricing and service! We’re a company dealing with high-profile clients, and we depend on our trades being spot-on and forward thinkers, and Simon and his team deliver every time. They’re reliable, highly responsive, friendly and loyal – and when we ring for service they make it happen. As Sound Professionals, they supply, install and test the equipment for acoustic quality within its unique working space, and have the expert capacity to provide technicians who are on-the-ball. In one particular instance, the engineering specs for the job were incorrect. Simon and his team pre-empted the problem and pre-cabled a
precautionary set of wiring – just in case. When the issue was raised by the client (as being a potential disaster) they came to our rescue, explained their initiative, and saved the day literally. We can’t fault them, which is why they’re our preferred service provider for all of our sound and electrical works.”
