Jose Navarro, a traveller, blogger and Berkeley College BBA student, recently posted to his blog about a trip he took to Tekserve. Referring to us as “the store that blew [his] mind,” Jose had many a kind word to say about Tekserve. In particular, he was fascinated by our eclectic display of old and new technology alike, our hands-on demo stations, as well as our cutting-edge music production equipment (his original reason for the visit to Tekserve was to help a friend outfit their recording studio).
Check out Jose’s full write-up here, or read a few excerpts below:
This week I found a store in NY that blew my mind! I am one of those people who is easily impressed with technology, gadgets… and I’m always checking new stuff at websites like StumbleUpon.com to see what’s new. This time I found a real place where I can go check these items and play around with them!
Honestly, I can spend hours walking around that store and I’ll go “wow” every other step. It’s just like a museum!
The real reason why I went to this place was to help a friend get some stuff for his music studio. This place is awesome when it comes to music production. You can build an incredible recording studio with what they have there. These items are also pretty pricey, but for someone whose passion is music production or works on it, this is a great spot.
My favorite thing about the store is how they display their stuff. You can try most of what they sell, and from what I saw it’s not too crowded and you don’t need to wait too long to play around with a drawing touchscreen, a keyboard or a mic.
Thanks again, Jose!
