The Abbey Road Studios Push Button XLR Connector Paperweight features a three pin XLR connector with push button encased in resin.

The XLR Connectors have been part of Abbey Road’s history for decades. Installed in the early 1970s and used extensively up until refurbishment in 2018 - 2020, these XLR Connectors were part of the equipment panels and TG Consoles in Abbey Road’s mastering rooms and across Studios One, Two and Three. Some of the most famous recordings in music history have passed through this connector.

The purpose of the XLR Connector was to carry shielded, balanced audio signals, making the cable attached to it less susceptible to interference from external electromagnetic induction. The result delivered audio signals of superior sound quality, created within the most famous recording studio in the world. The additional push button on the XLR Connector meant for a built-in locking system to ensure a secure connection.

One of 21 limited edition paperweights, the Push Button XLR Connector is encased in flawless resin and individually engraved with its own number.

Handcrafted in the UK, the paperweight is beautifully presented in an Abbey Road Studios embossed card box and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The UV filters within the resin stop any colour fading and carefully preserve details of the connector.
