The culmination of over a year of research and acquisition, the Fab Four Virtual instrument collection — unaffiliated with or endorsed by Apple Corps. Ltd. — is a faithfully executed, incredibly accurate and comprehensive collection featuring the same kind of instruments and recording equipment used by the Beatles. Well over one million dollars’ worth of rare period instruments — including authentic guitars, basses, drums, and keyboards — as well as amplifiers, microphones, recording consoles, outboard equipment and tape recorders were used in this production. With the Fab Four collection, users can become their own musical revolutionaries, utilizing sounds that helped to shape the industry.
