Today, PSSL CEO David Rice announced that after 45 years in the gear retail business, Pro Sound and Stage Lighting is closing their doors.

“The impact of Covid to the live event and hospitality industries have hurt you (our clients) and as a result dramatically reduced the need for the equipment we sell.” stated Mr. Rice in his letter to the industry.

Events in much of the US have been completely eliminated for 2020 and beyond, which leaves end-users (entertainers) without the income to purchase or upgrade gear. This in turn has put a huge hit on retail and manufacturing of music industry gear.
