It's the end of a long, long era at Axiom today. Brent Tombari is retiring from his role as Axiom Audio Expert after 15 years of providing expert advice to thousands of customers. Brent, you will be missed!
He started with Axiom not as a member of the staff, but as an audio dealer, in 1984, selling Axiom Speakers. He closed his retail store in 2000 and came on-board at Axiom full time.
Prior to his life on the reproduction side of audio, he was firmly ensconced in the production side, touring with a rock band for 8 years.
His first album was the Ventures Walk, Don't Run. "Bob Bogle's guitar soared . . ." It inspired him to become an incredibly accomplished guitarist in his own right.
Being at the other end of the telephone can be a cold and impersonal place, but never with Brent: he always sounded like he had just sat down to have a drink with you and chat. "Brent has been so willing to discuss amplifiers, sound set ups, and other products to allow me to get the most from my axiom speakers" wrote one of our customers, Doug T.
Brent, your enthusiasm is unfailing. Your interest in music and audio is unparalleled. And your friendship has meant so much to everyone at Axiom.
We wish you all the best as you settle into your next gig.
