A 1964 turntable was out last month. That has been followed by the new Essential III Sgt. Pepper‘s Drum turntable by Pro-Ject.
We said at the time more decks featuring The Beatles would follow and this is one of them, produced as part of the celebrations surrounding the 50th anniversary of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album by the Fab Four.
The deck, based on the existing Essential III, has a blue MDF plinth with vintage print to the top-panel, along with the Sgt. Pepper’s drum kit logo in the middle of the plinth and a frosted matte acrylic platter above.
In terms of the audio, the deck also has a high-grade motor with aluminium pulley and precision-engineered main bearing and an 8.6” aluminium tonearm with Ortofon OM 10 cartridge.
£429 is the price.
