Tom Bethel
Director and Mastering Engineer

Thomas W. Bethel, our managing director and principal mastering engineer was raised in Parma Heights, OH. After serving in the United States Army, as a broadcast specialist, he made up his mind to pursue his love of recorded sound. Within a year of leaving the service he landed a job as Director of Audio Services and Concert Sound at Oberlin College, where he stayed for 26 years.

While at Oberlin, Tom was responsible for the expansion of the Conservatory Audio Department. He grew it from a small-scale and seldom used department, to a full time recording studio with a staff of 35 students.

In 1995, Tom opened up his own mastering studio in Oberlin, OH to further pursue his dream. In 2015, Acoustik Musik, Ltd. will celebrate its 20th anniversary of delivering high-quality audio mastering to everyone from local bands to international artists.

Tom is also a voting member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS). In his free time he enjoys photography, graphics and traveling.
