About the Owner
photo of Lonnie Bedell of AVlifesavers.com My name is Lonnie Bedell, and I'm the guy behind AVLifesavers. Unlike big companies, I've been doing actual live sound work since 1995, and live recordings since 1985.
It's that kind of real world experience that I feel makes AVLifesavers stand out. It's one thing to examine problems theoretically, it's a whole different thing to deal with frantic last minute changes from an inexperienced client who wants it done yesterday.

Been there, done that, so I've designed products to solve live sound problem fast.

All products are assembled right here in the USA. Living Wages to American workers is and will always be part of the fabric here, despite the temptations.

Q: How long until it ships?
A: In-stock products ship out next day (except Sundays) if order received by 5pm. Orders exceeding stock on-hand will be built & ship out within 2 days.

Q: How is it shipped?
A: Post office Priority Mail. 2 days near most urban areas, 3 days to everywhere else. I do not use parcel post as it takes forever & infuriates customers. I dropped my UPS account when they raised the rates through the roof this year.

Q: Can I have it overnighted?
A: Yes, just email me first to make sure I can do it first, because I do some traveling. USPS is easy if there is already a pickup for today (they don't do same day pickups). UPS raised their price big time this year, and add additional fees to pickup. So UPS won't be cheap.

Q: How do I Pay?
A: Paypal handles all orders by credit or debit card, and you don't have to be a member to use it. Having problems with the button? Click Here for help.

Q: Where are the products made?
A: Everything is assembled in the USA. Most of the electronic parts come from Southeast Asia, as sadly there are few if any US manufacturers any more. I make every attempt to source US wherever possible, but suppliers refuse to allow me to give a preference. The cases are made by Hammond in Taiwan and machined in-house. Neutrik XLR connectors are listed in their website as being made in Liechtenstein.

Nothing from AVLifesavers will EVER be assembled in China!
