Eric Valentine has been obsessed with recording music and sound for over 25 years. From his very first Tascam 244 Portastudio to the Neve 88R, Eric has had his hands on just about every piece of equipment designed for the purpose of recording sound. He brings the perspective and vision of an end user – that is still actively making records every day – to the design process. Striving to fulfill needs and solve problems of todays record makers, Eric has created UnderTone Audio as an outlet for these ideas to be available to studios, engineers, mixers and producers outside the walls of his own studio.
Larry Jasper's unique fascination with electronic design started at a very early age. He began designing his own circuits in his teenage years and never stopped.

Having accumulated over 40 years of experience studying, designing and servicing audio electronic equipment, he now brings his encyclopedic knowledge of audio electronic circuitry and passion for innovation to Undertone Audio.
After stints managing Recorded Media Supply and partnering at Recording Data Service, analog-tape-aficonado and jazz-enthusiast Tim Davis respects the tools of the trade and the engineers who employ them to create music of the highest order. He's not a tech guy, but he knows well-crafted sounds when he hears them, and his goal at UTA is to put our mic pre's, EQs, compressors, and cables in the hands of craftsmen. If you do have tech questions, he'll find the answers for you. Want to demo something? He'll help figure that out. Want to buy something and ship it to the South Pole? He's a genius at logistics. Seriously.

Jonathan is the kind of audio worker you can bring home to Mom. Moms love Jonathan. Jonathan loves Moms. You could probably consider Jonathan our 'Mom Czar' here at Undertone.
