6296 - BEATLES GEAR - THE ULTIMATE EDITION

$56.00


By Andy Babiuk - This is an amazing revised and expanded edition of the original (twice the size), which has sold over 100,000 copies to date worldwide. This ultimate guide to all the gear used by the Beatles details exactly which guitars, drums, amplifiers and keyboards the Fab Four embraced throughout their brief but revolutionary career, from their earliest days as the Quarry Men to the dissolution of the Beatles in 1970. It provides fascinatingly fresh insights into Beatle history, exploding myths and uncovering dozens of new stories along the way. John, Paul, George, and Ringo's moves from cheap early instruments to the pick of 1960's technology are carefully and entertainingly documented in an easy-to-read narrative, fully illustrated with many previously unseen photographs, a cache of rare memorabilia, and a unique collection of specially photographed Beatles Image in concert from Feb. 11, 1964.
As we continue to find new ways to explore their sound, from vivid remasters of their original recordings to cutting-edge video games, the Beatles remain at the forefront of popular music. This landmark book is perfect for the fan absorbed by music rather than hairstyles, for the tribute-band member with an eye for detail, and for any reader with an abiding interest in the 1960's. With a foreword by acclaimed Beatle author Mark Lewisohn, Beatles Gear tells it like it was. Hardcover, 512 pages.
