Corey Brown

Founder/CEO

Corey fell in love with the bass at a young age, thanks to his parents cranking the bass knob to 11 on their stereo. He started playing double bass at the age of 10 and picked up the bass guitar at age 14. Later, he built his first website (in 1995). For years, he wanted to blend his passion for bass and the web into a single project and launched No Treble in 2009. Corey is also the Director of Web Services at Knucklepuck.
