“A Clockwork Orange” JA Michell Transcriptor Hydraulic Reference turntable

We have (temporarily) in our possession, one of the two iconic Michell turntables reportedly used in Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 film “A Clockwork Orange”.

This venerable British design classic has become something of a celebrity and we are honoured to have been asked (well Alan Gibb was asked) to give it a thorough service and overhaul – including the repair and testing of its equally venerable tonearm cable.

The turntable is packed with quirky and wonderful features – including a built-in “British” stylus brush, a drop down leg to support the opened dust cover and a silicon oil bath that is used to regulate the speed. More on these and a full feature on the servicing procedure will follow…
