Thats me in the picture on the cover kneeling in front of our sound system in 1975. We bought cabinets,horns tweeter banks and monitors from Bob.
Here is the article from that magazine. http://www.performing-musician.com/pm/dec08/articles/bobheil.htm

The man is a genius. Also invented the Talk Box device. Got out of manufacturing p a gear and now makes a line of fantastic microphones.
