John Lennon’s home studio microphones to be auctioned off

Beatle recorded 'Imagine' using the equipment

Microphones and other equipment that John Lennon used to record songs including ‘Imagine’ are set to be auctioned off next month.

The equipment used to be housed in the late Beatles frontman’s home studio in Tittenhurst Park, near Ascot, in the 1970s. He used it for his early solo albums.

BBC News reports that the microphones are expected to go under the hammer for at least £5,000 each. His wife Yoko Ono plus his former Beatles bandmates Ringo Starr and George Harrison also used the equipment.

The auction is being handled by recording equipment specialists MJQ Ltd. They are also offering a mixing console from Abbey Road Studios among other Beatles-related equipment. See for more information.
