1971 Kustom 200 Bass Head

We recently got one of these Kustom 200 bass heads (in the no-sparkle black) at the LSRR. We're running it through tests at rehearsal sessions before we attempt recording with it. It's pretty darn loud. Top image is a panel from a catalog, approx 1970-71.

GEORGE MANN hails from New York and has been producing labor and protest music for more than 20 years. 
 He has worked with and produced albums featuring such folk music legends as Utah Phillips, Pete Seeger and Tom Paxton and produced national tours of the US and Australia in honor of the Almanac Singers (2013) and Joe Hill (2015). George brings his experience as a union organizer and educator to his concerts-- stories and songs about real events and the struggle for a better life. He has just released "For the Road and the Sky," his newest CD, and "Until You Come Home: Songs to Heal the Wounds of War," a compilation CD of songs about the effects of war on those who serve.


MICK HARGREAVES has a new music video out for the song "Crystal Ball", written with Joe Delia, video shot and edited by Jody Gambino.

Since the end of 2014, Mick's Lantern Sound Recording Rig (LSRR) has operated in a sprawling early 1900's farmhouse in the pine barrens of Long Island NY, where he records, rehearses, and holds house concerts. Mick has hosted "The Lantern Sound Rig Stage" at the Montauk Music and Cabin Fever Music Festivals, along with Dorene Rose's Arts Stage at Alive After Five (Patchogue NY), and Alive on 25 (Riverhead) street festivals. 2016 saw the appearance of the song "Rinse and Repeat", a co-write with Rich Arfin and Klyph Black, in the Netflix Judd Apatow series "Love".

THE LANTERN SOUND RECORDING RIG is in a bucolic, historical, three-story, eleven-room farmhouse, where artists can live, eat, and breathe their recording to completion. We are located less than five minutes from the Hampton Jitney, the Long Island Railroad, and the Long Island Expressway in the Eastern Pine Barrens of LI, NY.

We feature a full variety of microphones and mic preamps, Apple Logic® recording software, simple & clean signal paths, a full compliment of drums/amps/instruments. Quick setups, nice comforts, pleasant people, and fantastic vibes are our trademarks.
