Try a Streamlight Stylus penlight. They're about the size of a pen, have an LED bulb, and are available in several colors. Momentary contact switch, or can be switched to "on". Waterproof, too. I hold mine with my teeth, or you can tuck it behind your ear. Under $20- at any police supply store or order online at streamlight
Buy the 12 or 16" gooseneck little light, and make sure you purchase the Clamp if you wish to mount it by clammping to a shelf. About 70 bucks for the whole kit online, Retail is about 110 or 120.00 local. Oh and get the low Intensity version, the HI output is never going to be necessary, and the units come with cool dimmer knobs stock and I never need to turn it up more than half.. Even with the Low intensity version its way too bright turned all the way up.
Hi, I found a nice lite for my turntable. It is called litehaus, it's a wireless led task light. It used 3aaa batteries and comes in a package of two lamps for 19.95 also has a dimmer and adjustment for a wider or narrow lite. A real bargain I feel, found mine at B.Js warehouse in Henrietta N.Y. Hope this helps.
I got one in the outdoor/barbecue section at Lowe's. It's marketed as an after-hours barbecue lamp. It has a base that can attach as a clamp or magnet, is AAA-battery-powered, has a nice. long flexible gooseneck, and a bright halogen lamp. At Lowe's it was $20, but I've also since seen it at Costco for around $10. They're all chrome and silver and look pretty nice.
Not only is it a handy for barbecuing and flipping LPs (right now I have it at my turntable), it's THE BEST for changing interconnects behind the rack because you don't have to use a third hand or your mouth to hold a flashlight. It also fits behind the rack where a long-handle MagLite won't.
The magnet, clamp, and gooseneck enable you to aim the light exactly where you want it, and it stays there. My HT system has a wide, low rack, and it's really dark back there with literally dozens (full 7.1 surround) of wires including interconnects, power cords, HDMIs, SP/DIFs, and speaker cables. This little flexlite is a lifesaver.
Sharper Image. I have a clamp-on LED lamp (with goose neck) from them doing exactly what you want to do. The clamp is a beast!! It's actually advertised as a barbecue grill lamp. I know it works quite well when I've got the music cookin'!!
$100+ ??? WTF? I think I paid around $50 for mine...
Here it is:
