The George Harrison Record Player has been specially produced for fans by Project in collaboration with the Universal Music Group and artist Shepard Fairey, commemorating the late musician's 74th birthday with art-work originally designed for the Harrison's back in 2014. This stunning turntable is truly one of a kind, and an absolute must for any die hard George Harrison fan. As the George Harrison Record Player is a limited special edition, there are only 2500 units produced worldwide, so hurry while you can!


With the George Harrison Record Player, Project has come together with the Universal Music Group and the artist Shepard Fairey to create a gorgeous record player to commemorate the late Beatles' 74th birthday. The record player features a beautiful lithograph that is based on an art-print originally designed by Shepard Fairey for the Harrison estate back in 2014.

The record player itself, underneath the artwork, is the new Project Essential III. Retaining the simple, beautiful design of the Project Essential II, the Essential III has been revitalised. Constructed out of high-quality MDF, used for its acoustically neutral character, the Essential III combines style with functionality. The plinth is mounted on three anti-vibration feet which helps with the effective decoupling of the turntable from the surface upon which it has been placed. The Essential III also features an acrylic platter, which offers an inert platform for your vinyl records to reduce any unwanted resonance and tinny frequencies whilst accentuating mid-range. The platter is constructed with a Stainless Steel bearing in a bronze bushing and a Teflon-lined bottom to allow for smoother rotation.

Using the 9v motor previously used in the Essential II, the Project Essential III is the first to use a new integrated grounding link which reduces electrical interference to much lower levels than previously seen. The Essential III houses a motor that has a synchronous AC design driven by the built in signal generator, this makes sure the Essential III runs at optimal speed whilst reducing stability and minimising any unwanted resonances. The 8.6", lightweight, premium aluminium tonearm guarantees enough rigidity to ensure the best quality playback possible. The gimbal bearing assembly uses sapphire bearings for smoother tracking across a vinyl record. The counterweight supplied allows for easy installation of a variety of pick-up cartridges.

Unlike its predecessor, the Essential III is equipped with an Ortofon OM 10 cartridge, vastly improving upon the Essential II. The OM 10's elliptical profile and precision micro-mechanics allow the Essential III to deliver a better, fuller sound than previous models. The Essential III is perfect for Vinyl enthusiasts everywhere, whilst remaining affordable.
