“We have already introduced the George Harrison record player and are now showing the world our second limited edition turntable. It features copies of original tickets and brochures from their legendary touring between 1962 and 1966 during which they captured the world‘s acclaim! The fab four have held 166 concerts in 15 different countries and 90 individual cities in only four years. The cultural phenomenon their touring helped create, known as “Beatlemania“, was something the world has never seen before and laid the foundation for the globalisation of culture.

The artwork for the 1964 Recordplayer shows copies of tickets and brochures from their legendary world tour beginning in June 1964. This incredibly detailed print was very hard to realise and was only possible with special techniques. Where multiple layers and surfaces are applied. After the distribution of the ink it is dryed out instantly with special ultra-violet lights, to ensure perfectly displayed details and to offer ultimate durability. This was the only way to make sure that all the details are transformed without loss and smear to the turntable.
This one of a kind is limited to 2500 pieces worldwide.
Price is €650
