Sound Tech Finds Universal Design Solution With FBT MUSE
When you’re a busy sound engineer who specializes in everything from weddings and concerts to nightclubs, versatility needs to be part of your repertoire.

The sound engineer and owner of Tonetronix in Hubbard, OH says he’s found a way to be ready for just about any sound challenge with one strategic piece of equipment – the FBT MUSE 210LA line array. Conti says he’s streamlined his equipment, and is now planning on using the array as his ‘go to’ solution for all of his upcoming projects because of its proven versatility, clarity and power.
