A collaboration between Pro-Ject Audio Systems and The Beatles has brought about a special edition turntable inspired by the most successful Beatles album worldwide, Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album is known as a milestone due to it's break from conventional recording sounds and content. The Beatles took nine months to create the record, which was unprecedented at the time. The Essential III // Sgt. Pepper Turntable displays Ringo Starr's bass drum from the famous album cover shoot featuring the "new" Sgt. Pepper Beatles burying the Fab Four moptop Beatles of 1963.
Handmade in Europe, the blue turntable costs $500, features a dust cover, weighs 11 pounds, and does not have a built-in phono pre-amp. It also does not have Bluetooth, but, then again, they didn't have that in 1967 either.
