Arguably the two most influential musicians of the 1960s

Promotional poster for Sunn amplifiers featuring an image of Hendrix performing, 23 x 29, signed on a panel on the reverse in black ink, “Love always, Jimi Hendrix” and “Bob Dylan.” The advertisement poses the question, “Ever felt the sound of the Jimi Hendrix Experience?” Below, the smaller text reads, “February 14, 1968 the Jimi Hendrix Experience experienced the sound of Sunn. They now use Sunn amplifiers and sound systems exclusively.” In very good condition, with intersecting folds (as issued), some light toning and soiling, tack holes to corner tips, a significant tear to the top edge of the poster (not affecting the signed panel), and evidence of removal of an unknown signature once present above the Hendrix. Signatures are on a single panel and therefore unaffected by the folds. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.

Although Hendrix is known for using Marshall amplifiers, he signed a promotional deal with Sunn in 1967 after the Monterey Pop Festival—they agreed to supply the entire Experience with whatever they needed, in exchange for the band’s input into research and development. The deal, originally intended to last five years, got cut short at just 14 months because Hendrix was unhappy with the sound and switched back to Marshall. Noel Redding, however, continued to use Sunn amps for his bass. This poster was most likely signed on two different occasions—although Hendrix and Dylan were known to admire each other, they aren’t known to have spent much time in the same place. In a 1969 interview with Rolling Stone, Hendrix said, ‘I love Dylan. I only met him once, about three years ago, back at the Kettle of Fish on MacDougal Street. That was before I went to England. I think both of us were pretty drunk at the time, so he probably doesn’t remember it.’ A fantastic and unique piece, this is the only item we have ever encountered signed by both Hendrix and Dylan—two of the most sought after rock signatures in the hobby. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
