Managing Director & Lead Designer
Neat Acoustics was founded by Bob Surgeoner in 1989. As a self-taught musician, Bob has spent most of his life playing music in a variety of different styles, such as blues, rock, jazz, folk, country and bluegrass. He’s also pursued a parallel interest in electronics since childhood and this passion for music-making continues to drive his enthusiasm for the reproduction of recorded music.
Paul Ryder joined Neat Acoustics in 2006. Paul is also a musician, having played guitar with several bands in the North of England. He is also an experienced sound recording engineer and runs Neat’s in-house recording facility.
