Grammy Award-winning mixer, producer, and engineer Hugo Nicolson (Radiohead, Primal Scream, Julian Cope, etc.) announces the founding of Lisson Grove, a new boutique pro audio brand dedicated to recapturing the finest studio sounds of yesteryear. Right out of the gate, the company is underscoring this mission with the launch of its inaugural product, the R-124, a valve compressor based on the classic 1960s British studio units used extensively on all of The Beatles' recordings.
Reverse engineering one of the highly modified Altec 436 originals, the new R-124 differs from its "holy grail" predecessor by utilizing modern, reliable components.
Currently available, the Lisson Grove R-124 compressor features a retail price of $3,700 and is exclusively distributed in the U.S. by Vintage King Audio. Visit the R-124 product page
