Rig Rundown: Henry Kaiser's Five Times Surprise

A studio visit with the new gear-heavy improv/art-rock supergroup that includes Henry Kaiser, Andy West, and Anthony Pirog.

For the Five Times Surprise sessions, Henry Kaiser’s big dog was a prototype built by Michael Spalt of Austria’s Spalt Instruments. It has a 27" scale rosewood neck, but its superpower is a Don Ramsay Linear Tremolo, which rolls on a linear bearing and stays in tune like Pavarotti. The 6-string has Seymour Duncan pickups.
