    Lansing’s Personal Style

    Lansing was not an outgoing family man.  He had four children whom he cared for a great deal.  He would spend occasional weekends entertaining them, taking them to the park, and so forth.  But for the most part, he spent relatively little time at home; typically, weekends would be spent at the factory where he would work on new projects and processes.  In the old McKinley Avenue plant, the only sofa was in the ladies lounge.  After long hours of agonizing over a […]

    The Last Thirty-Two Years

    The Last Thirty-Two Years

    During the late forties and early fifties, the value of the name Lansing as a trade identification was extremely high.  Although it strictly belonged to the Altec Lansing Corporation, the new company made use of the name Lansing in the style of Jim Lansing “Signature” loudspeakers.  The use of the word Signature implied that one could not take a man’s name away from him, even though the name had been given or sold previously as a commodity in a business transaction.
    Up to about […]

    The Formation of James B. Lansing Sound Inc.

    The company that is presently known as James B. Lansing Sound, Incorporated, was first called Lansing Sound, Incorporated, and dates from 1 October 1946.  The principals of this company were James B. Lansing, Chauncey Snow, and Chester L. Noble.  Since the name Lansing had been identified for so many years as a product trade name, the Altec Lansing Corporation objected strenuously to the name of the new corporation.  By agreement with George Carrington, Lansing Sound, Incorporated, changed its name to James B. Lansing Sound, […]

    The Altec Lansing Corporation

    With the new stability offered by the merger, Lansing was at last free to pursue his work without financial worry.  During these years, he perfected many of the processes that have become standard in loudspeaker manufacturing around the world, including high-speed winding of flat wire voice coils on metal mandrels and hydraulic forming of high-frequency aluminium diaphragms.
    We should take note of two very famous systems that Lansing perfected in these years with Altec.  The 604 coaxial loudspeaker of 1943 was a very successful […]

    The Rise of The Motion Picture Sound Business

    The Rise of The Motion Picture Sound Business

    In the late twenties, the success of “The Jazz Singer” established sound as the new standard for the motion picture theatre.  Western Electric, the manufacturing arm of AT&T, was destined to rule that business for many years.  The vast resources of Bell Laboratories had been brought to bear on problems of recording, reproducing, and allied arts, and as a result they were able to mount the required technology for manufacturing in fairly short order.  Electrical Research Products Incorporated (ERPI) was set up as […]

    The Early Years

    JBL Pro, as we know them today, was launched by James Bullough Lansing. The company that is presently known as James B. Lansing Sound, Incorporated, was first called Lansing Sound Incorporated, and originally dates back to 1st October 1946.
