Research during the restoration of Hendrix’s flat revealed his setup included a Bang & Olufsen turntable connected to a LEAK amplifier and two Lowther speakers.
The recreation features an original Bang & Olufsen Beogram 1000 turntable, a restored set of Lowther Acousta 115 speakers – the same model owned by Hendrix – and a LEAK Stereo 130 integrated stereo amplifier, modeled on the 1963 Stereo 30 version Hendrix used.
To coincide with what would have been Hendrix’s 78th birthday, the museum has shared a new video of Nabihah Iqbal testing out the set-up with a selection of records owned by Hendrix.
