Mike Rubenhold – Service Technician
I have been working at ProSound and Music for twelve years as an electronic tech. I have over 19 years of experience in troubleshooting and repairing electronic and mechanical equipment, as well as designing my own equipment and devices. Currently, I am finishing up a psch/bio degree at SDSU with emphasis in neuroscience.
As far as playing music. I have been playing drums off and on now for 20 years, and play a little guitar here and there when I feel like expressing melody, as opposed to rhythm. I am into all forms of music, ranging from acid jazz, to speed metal. I have played in many bands when I was living in Los Angeles, playing in clubs on Sunset to backyard parties. Since living in San Diego, I seem to only have time to jam with some friends here and there. I also quite enjoy the recording side of music as well and have been doing so for about 10 years, both analog and digital.
