I was one of Skip's first customers after he left John at Southgate music. I purchased my first P.A. System, Fender Rhodes Electric Piano, Fender Tube Amp, saxophones, drums, etc. back in 1973 to 1979 out in South a Sacramento next to Alpine Bowling Alley. To this day I continue to use local Sacramento shops like Skips and Joey at PROFOUND Sound instead of the evil Big Box store. Skips provides the best deals and has professional musicians to assist you. I am actually purchasing my new QSC speakers there once I can drive over in the SUV.
