JBL announced its sponsorship of this summer's Dave Mason tour. In addition, JBL will be "onstage" by way of custom monitors designed specifically for this tour.

A variation of JBL's SR4702X standard product offering, the mirror-image monitors will provide even distribution on high and low frequencies to Mason while o stage. Mason will also be utilizing Crown MA-602 and MA-3600 amps, as well as a dbx DriveRack260.

Mason is happy with the performance of the system, stating, "Since I have to deal with P.A. companies at every venue, the monitor system that JBL has developed for me has greatly reduced the surprise factor and has afforded me an onstage monitor system that is reliable, consistent and has a quality that is second-to-none."

This summer's tour features Phil Bonano at the FOH position. Sound engineer and technical advisor, Bonano has been working with Mason in the studio on his upcoming album. Bonano has been pleased with the performance of the SR-X monitors. "Dave's been in the studio for so long, he's accustomed to a recording monitor," stated Bonano. "We wanted to give him a stereo-quality studio monitor onstage. The SR-X monitors give Dave the comfort of knowing he's got a consistent-sounding monitor system that he can trust to sound great every time."

The tour is hitting smaller venues this time around and is not utilizing a sound company. The FOH console has been typically the venues' own equipment, and the monitor engineer has either been the house engineer or the bass player.
