    When banjoist Dale Reichert needed new monitors for his unique bluegrass band, Art Stevenson and High Water, he turned to Kent Laabs, president of SoundWorks Systems for guidance. What they got were four FBT StageMaxX 12Mas and a sound that, according to Reichert, helps them make better music. “I’ve known Kent a long, long time,” said Reichert. “He’s the trusted sound source here in Wisconsin, in my opinion.” “Normally, when you go and talk to him about equipment, he’ll do… View this story
