Bart Wascom

Bart Wascom was the electrical engineer who sought to improve the pro-audio speakers by improving the distribution of sound. After several tests, he concluded that large wooden cabinets compress many of the mid range tones. By creating a plastic case for his speakers, which sits on the ground like a floor monitor, Bart was able to detect mid range tones that he could not hear in other speaker cabinets. To celebrate the launch of the speakers as well as NAMM’s centennial in 2000, Bart created a one of a kind speaker and donated it to the NAMM Foundation’s Museum of Making Music.
