Jennings Electronic Industries

Part 4 of 5


This page, which will grow, is a repository of adverts and articles on "Jennings Electronic Industries" in 1973. The principal source is "Beat Instrumental" magazine, aimed squarely at professional musicians and those working in the recording industry.

In the main, the articles are normally quite brief, but informative nonetheless, regularly giving glimpses of new items and things that were to be (or had been) shown at the principal musical equipment fairs: the Frankfurt Musikmesse, normally in February or March; and the Associated Musical Instrument Industries Fair in London in August.

For 1968 to 1969, . For 1970-1971, ; and for 1972, .
