Makenoise was founded by Tony Rolando. At the age of 12 he connected his e-guitar to a Pioneer SR-202 reverb and he has "been warped, searching for inspiration in sound ever since!" He got his start into engineering while working it the electronics industry and then started building custom music electronics under the names OWL and Makenoise. The once tiny enterprise from Asheville deleveloped to a respectable manufacturer.
