During the 1980s, famous music establishments were prominent in the nightlife of most partygoers. To name a few are Faces, Rumors, Kudos in Metro Manila and CalJam in Olongapo. These were places where people would go to and have a good time with all the flashing disco lights and heart pounding dance music.
According to General Manager of MusicBox II, Mr. John Gomez – Music Box II started in 1980 with owners Mr. Lin and Pinky Gomez. They were one of the pioneers to supply most music establishments – professional audio equipment and sound system.
“Owners of these famous music establishments in the 1980s usually come here to Pampanga to visit our store and purchase professional audio equipment. We started with brands like JBL then branched out to Crown, Shure, SoundCraft and DBX, mostly American brands, then eventually we had European brands like Behringer, AKG and for a time an Asian brand ProAudio.”
John started to manage MusicBox II in the year 2000, which is located in MacArthur Highway, Dau, Mabalacat, Pampanga. It is safe to say that his experience in the professional audio business would be considered as one of the most updated, quality-conscious and diverse knowledge on sound equipment and sound quality that professional musicians and sound engineers are after.
“MusicBox II has been supplying to music productions nationwide that handle famous music artists, composers, musical directors, sound engineers and performers like Louie Ocampo, Regine Velasquez, Kuh Ledesma, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano and Lea Salonga – most of the sound engineers of these artists are direct contacts of MusicBox II. We perfected speaker enclosures that were considered road-worthy or tour-grade material that both sound engineers and famous artists would use in their concerts. Our products ensure reliability and quality of sound,” says John.
“The best way to describe the perfect sound is to produce an amplified quality sound that is closest to the source”. – This is the quality that MusicBox II will supply to your performance -John added.
Music will always exist in the nightlife and in entertainment – the quality of music will always depend on the talent and musical knowledge of the musicians and performers plus the quality of professional audio equipment – Behind the Music – with MusicBox II.
