A microphone which John Lennon used to record 'Imagine' has been placed on sale, with bids starting at £1500. More than 30 years after his death, John Lennon remains an instantly recognisable icon. Renowned for his work with The Beatles, the Liverpool born artist's solo work also retains an enduring place in pop culture.
Produced by Phil Spector, the 'Imagine' album is perhaps the most potent of Lennon's post-Beatles output. Containing that seminal title cut - and countless other fantastic moments - it remains John Lennon's best selling solo release. Now studio equipment used to record the album has emerged online. Amongst the studio trickery on offer are all manner of modulators and tape recorders, but perhaps the items of most interest are a pair of Neumann microphones.
