Our Story At Overtone Acoustics

Today’s post is going to be a fun one! We are excited to take the opportunity to tell our readers and prospective customers a little bit more about our background here at Overtone Acoustics.




Why You Should Consider Acoustic Treatment

In our previous post, which happened to also be our inaugural blog post, we took the opportunity to introduce ourselves as a provider of acoustic treatment services in addition to explaining what sets us apart from other such providers in our industry. The long and the short of it is that we are both audiophiles and artists at heart; our mission is to help the world hear sound in its purest form while sacrificing nothing in terms of style. We blend top-line quality with stunning visual appeal in the form of acoustic art panels.

Our goal is to give our customers control in a variety of ways, providing custom acoustic treatments while letting you create your own acoustic art to help your particular vision come to life!

Why Acoustic Treatment In The First Place?

Today’s post will be more big-picture than our previous in that we want to discuss the rationale behind acoustically treating a room in the first place. For our readers who are new to this world and are still figuring out the difference between bass traps and acoustic panels, this post should point you in the right direction. Let’s get going!

A Hypothetical:

Let’s start with why you should care in the first place. Let’s say you are a musician with all the talent in the world, and you just so happen to have access to the best instruments and recording equipment that money can buy. For the sake of argument, let’s say you are also on the verge of recording and then releasing an album that will set the musical world on alight. You’re going to be famous, and it’s going to be amazing.

There’s just one little problem; you’re cash poor and you have no setting in which you can effectively record the aforementioned stunning album. You are left with using your friend’s study because it is at least superior to your basement. The outcome? The long story short is that you can say goodbye to your Grammy.

The setting in which you create sound has a massive effect on the overall quality.

All the talent and the highest quality of instruments in the world don’t mean much if the room in which you record is left acoustically untreated. We’d go so far as to say that acoustically treating a room can make or break the end-product.

Beyond The Studio

Let’s be clear here: acoustic wall panels, bass traps, and diffusers aren’t only for recording studios. We have customers looking to acoustically treat their home theaters for a sharper, truer sound. Others are looking to cut down on the reverb and echo in their conference rooms at the workplace. Others still want to completely revamp the sound quality at their live-music venue.

Live Rooms Vs. Dead Rooms

Whatever the listening environment you have in mind, the point is that acoustically treating a room at the first reflection points will provide you with a dramatically improved overall sound. And while each room is different from the next, the key is to strike an appropriate balance between an overly “live” room and a dead room. The former is what folks in the industry call a room that has too much echo and reverb occurring (due to a surplus of hard, reflective surfaces), whereas the latter is the opposite issue. Hence, covering the entire surface area of a room in acoustic wall panels isn’t always a good idea. The point is to make sure you retain the organic vibrancy of a room while not letting the echoes “muddy’ the listening experience.

Overtone Acoustics has everything you need to find such a balance. What’s more, we afford you the ability to personalize your room with acoustic art panels, as we mentioned above. Keep in mind, however, that if you don’t have a custom image in mind, you can choose from our collection of acoustic art at your convenience.

Shop Overtone

Now that you understand the fundamentals of acoustic treatment and why it’s more than worthy of your consideration, feel free to browse our collection of room kits, bass traps, and sound absorbing panels. But clearly, there is much more to soundproofing and sound absorption than what we’ve had time to address in today’s post.

Welcome To Overtone Acoustics - Custom Acoustic Treatments

Welcome to Overtone Acoustics, your provider of custom acoustic solutions for virtually any listening setting. In today’s inaugural blog post, we’d like to take the opportunity to highlight what we offer in addition to explaining what sets us apart as a provider of acoustic wall panels and beyond.

The long and the short of it, however, is that Overtone Acoustics is where style meets function. Keep reading to find out how and why!

Unrivaled Clarity

Our specialty acoustic treatments and sound absorbing wall panels afford you the ability to have studio-quality sound to any setting — be it commercial or private in nature. We offer acoustic wall panels, bass traps, sound diffusers, along with entire room kits to make sure our customers have the highest quality of acoustic treatment available.

Acoustic Art Panels

Above is the “clarity” piece. Now let’s talk about style. While we sacrifice nothing in terms of quality, perhaps what sets us apart from anyone else in our industry is the fact that we let you transform your acoustic panels into custom pieces of art by uploading your own image, logo, design, or personal artwork.

Create Your Own

When we say we let you be the artist, we mean it. You can turn any functional artwork in four simple steps! First, upload your high-resolution image, customize your piece by choosing your options and previewing your print, order and receive it within 11-15 business days, and then (here’s the most important step) love it — or your money back! It’s the perfect way to spot treat your space with high-quality sound absorbing wall panels while personalizing it just the way you like it!

Keep in mind that if you can always browse and choose from our in-house art panel collections rather than creating your own. It’s in your hands.

In this way, you can see how the two worlds of style and function intersect. We are both artists and audiophiles at heart; our mission is to blend stunning visual style with sonic perfection. And in a future post, we’ll share more of our story and beginnings. But for the purposes of this post, we’d like to continue to offer a high-level description of what you can practically gain from choosing Overtone Acoustics as your provider of all things related to acoustic treatment. Below you’ll find more detailed descriptions of our acoustic panels and bass traps.

Acoustic Panels

We offer decorative acoustic panels that bring a clarity and focus to environments that range from recording studios and home theaters to conference rooms and live-music venues. Whatever setting you have in mind, you can shop with confidence when choosing Overtone Acoustics. They are top-quality mid to high-range frequency absorbers and are ideal for reducing reverberation and echo with any space. Choose from our Diamond Knit or Microsuede style while selecting one of many color options (if you want to keep it simple rather than going the route of the acoustic art panel, that is) to match your sound absorbing panels with the rest of the room you have in mind.

Our ready-to-hang panels feature:

  • High Quality - We offer durable construction, dimensional stability, and better absorption than commonly-used foam panels.
  • Pro Performance - Overtone’s high-density fiber core affords complete control with regards to primary reflections and flutter echo.
  • Modern Profile - Get a sleek, stylish sound absorbing panel while you sacrifice nothing in terms of quality.

Bass Traps For Dampening Frequencies

Acoustic wall panels are best used for controlling the echo and reverb of mid to high frequencies, whereas our bass traps provide low-end control. The low-frequency attenuation helps you experience more accurate bass tone reproduction. Simply put, you’ll feel the bass hit without it sound muddy or warbled.

Our bass traps feature:

  • High-Density Sound Absorption - Three inches of highly-absorbent cotton denim
  • Three-Inch Profile - Offers extra low-end attenuation, which brings you a truer, clearer sound
  • Handcrafted & Gallery-Wrapped - Handcrafted in the U.S. and wrapped in your choice of fabric
