The ASC Team
Our staff are a small and exceptionally talented group of inventors, engineers, craftsmen, musicians, audio enthusiasts and business professionals.
FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
Art Noxon founded ASC in 1984 when he invented the famous bass trap, the TubeTrap. He is world renowned for his work in acoustics, and holds numerous patents for acoustical products. Art continues his work in R&D, and still finds time for clients.
CFO & BUSINESS MANAGER
Pearl helps keep the business end of things running smoothly. She has been with ASC for over 20 years, and is the one to make sure the work gets done. Otherwise, we’d just listen to music all day…
Marcus joined ASC in 1999, and brings 20 years of experience in managing daily business operations. He likes the small company atmosphere of ASC, where no two days are the same. He helps with sales and various projects, in addition to overseeing the coordination between departments.
ENGINEERING ASSISTANT / PRODUCTION MANAGER
Jordan recently completed his Mechanical Engineering degree and now spends equal time between the front office and fabrication area. Besides overseeing the shop, he also serves as the technical advisor & project manager for most of our custom jobs.
HIFI SALES & PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Tim came to ASC after a multi-year stint in the speaker-making business. His corner loaded bass horns solve many of the acoustic room problems plaguing loudspeakers today. Luckily for us, they are too big to remove from his listening room and so he came to work with us! Check them out here.
SHIPPING & RECEIVING
With meticulous disposition, John is the one who ensures that your acoustic goods are packaged gently and securely to make a safe and timely journey from our door to yours.
FINISHING & FINAL ASSEMBLY
For over a decade Victor has honed his skills in hand-finishing the entire line of ASC products. No custom job is beyond his problem-solving capabilities. When he isn’t putting all the flourishes on TubeTraps and SoundPanels, he’s cooking up darkwave with his band, Black Magdalene.
FABRICATION & FINISHING
Calum joined the ASC staff in 2018 and quickly learned the ropes in the finishing department. Now they make TubeTraps of all sizes and most of our wall-mounted absorber panels. In their spare time, they builds the biggest horn speakers and transmission lines you’ve ever seen.
FABRICATION & PURCHASING
Ian joined the ASC Team in 2018 and brought an invaluable combination of shop and office skills. He now runs the purchasing department and builds TubeTraps when time allows. He also builds the trickiest custom products the engineering department can come up with. Amplifier repair and HiFi speaker construction are a couple more unique talents he brings to the team.
MARKETING & GRAPHICS
Scott joined ASC in 2020 bringing over 25 years of Graphic Design and Marketing experience to the team. When Scott’s not devising marketing schemes you can find him mountain biking or playing music with his bands.
FABRICATION & FINISHING
Leif is a member of the ASC team working in fabrication. He is project-oriented and enjoys working with his hands. His free time is dedicated to playing, repairing, and building musical instruments, plus hiking, creating designs, and cooking.
James brings to ASC over 25 years experience as a musician, music producer, recording-artist, audio engineer, and more. His years of studio experience make him a natural for helping people create their ideal studio acoustics. When not working with music and studios, he also likes finding time to pursue his passion for the outdoors, photography, writing, and travel.
