Megawatt Recording

Los Angeles California

Megawatt Recording is a two room studio facility located in Los Angeles California.

Studio A features a vintage, totally discrete Neve 8058 MKII as well as a Neve 12 channel side car. The 1000+ square foot tracking room has oak parquet flooring and natural wood designed walls.

Studio B (Mix) features an SSL 4080 G+ and a vocal / overdub room.

Both studios have a full complement of world-class outboard gear, along with separate entrances as well as private lounges.


The facility began life as the Lighthouse Studios in 1978 and was host to world renowned artists such as Chicago, Starship, Earth Wind & Fire, Toto, Michael Jackson, Natalie Cole, Dwight Yoakam, John Fogerty, James Ingram, Duane Eddy, and Amy Grant among many others.

The studio changed hands in June of 1998 and along with a remodel became Bay 7 Studios. Over the next 14 years there were many records made by the likes of The Beach Boys, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Tool, Queens of the Stoneage, Daughtry, P.O.D, Santana, Bon Jovi, Kelly Clarkson, and 3 Doors Down.

Bay 7 Studios was owned by Dave Rouze and Jeff Sheehan from 1998 until 2012 and was host to numerous gold and platinum records produced by such notables as Don Was, Don Smith, Howard Benson, Joe Barresi, Rob Cavallo and many others. (Producers & Engineers list)

In 2012 change came knocking once again and long time studio partners Dave Rouze and Jeff Sheehan parted ways. As a result of the split, Bay 7 Studios became Megawatt Recording – a name that came from Sheehan’s other venture, Megawatt Rentals.
