History of United Sound & Electronics
United Sound Service –A Leader in Innovation Since 1934
“United Sound Lends Dignity to Any Event”
United Sound Service was founded in 1934 by Waitman Furbee. The company has always been a top name in the industry, as well as a leader in sound innovation. During the 1930s, the field of Sound Reinforcement was in its infancy, and all equipment began to utilize vacuum tubes to amplify the signals effectively. Some of the earliest public address systems used in the state of West Virginia were installed by United Sound Service. These advanced mobile amplifiers were much more powerful than anything else available at the time. A vibration system was developed that could produce raw AC that was capable of being stepped up and converted to the B+ high tension power required for the high voltage anode plate supply. The age of communication had blossomed, and United Sound Service was at the forefront. As vacuum tubes paved the way, the possibility of affordable home electronics became a reality.
