Hans Theessink’s virtues are known around the world.

Sonore vocals, songs with meaning, flair for melodies, restrained, but fine-nerved and sensitive instrumentation. With more than 8000 concerts, 30 albums and 50 years “on the road” Theessink has become an institution. The US press called the two-times Amadeus-award winner and bearer of the Golden Merit Sign “an international Blues treasure”. In celebration of his 70th jubilee we are releasing in collaboration with Hans Theessink this limited collector‘s edition. Built on the EISA Award winning turntable Essential III, fine adjusted with an acrylic platter, the Hans Theessink Blues Recordplayer is a true masterpiece. It convinces visually as well as sonically. The pre-mounted OM10 cartridge is known as the price-performance king per-se. The unmistakeable artwork is an analogy to his work as a Blues-man and kept in blue, the portrait of Theessink adorns this turntable.
