very happy with. Steve Stavrinides explains:
"Alstublieft is our front line. We need to feel

to match the client's requirements. If it lets
the client down, it lets us down. Alstublieft

our equipment deserves and we demand and people
go back to them time after time."

sound and look is perfect for every situation.
It aims to produce the best equipment possible

and adaptability really shines through with
its custom built designs now making a mark with
clubs, bars and music venues around the country.
