Gizmo is a state-of-the art studio with a comfortable atmosphere and very knowledgeable staff.

Our staff has extensive experience with a full range of musical expressions and styles — from acoustic to electric, solo to full band, classical to hard rock — Gizmo has the right gear and the right engineer for the job. 

In this age of home computer recording technology we have found a new way to be of service to the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC music communities.  We now offer consulting services for those who choose to record in their homes - Gantt Kushner can come to your home and help with room acoustics, ergonomics, equipment setup, recording techniques and many other aspects of the process.  You can also have the tracks you've recorded in your home studio mixed by Gantt at Gizmo Recording for professional results.  Please call if you're interested in any of these services.  We'd love to help you with your project!
