  • Special edition Essential III with Sgt. Pepper's drum kit logo
  • Based on the multi-award winning Essential II design
  • Beautiful high-gloss plinth and Acrylic platter
On June 1st, 2017, the iconic album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band turned fifty years old. To mark the occasion Pro-Ject Audio Systems released a special edition version of the Essential III turntable, decorated with commemorative Sgt. Pepper imagery.
The Essential III has been an international hit since its release in late-2016. Following on from the multi-award winning MK II model, the Essential III combines style and substance into an enviably affordable package. After being re-worked earlier in 2017 as the George Harrison Record Player, the Essential III is now getting the Sgt. Pepper treatment.
 
The Essential III: Sgt. Pepper's Drum is a non-limited, special edition release, designed to give more Beatles fans access to high-quality audio equipment emblazoned with the iconic group's imagery. The striking blue MDF plinth boasts a vintage print to the top-panel, allowing the turntable to stand out from the crowd. Then, in glorious multi-colour, the iconic Sgt. Pepper's drum kit logo is printed in the middle of the plinth. Adding an understated subtlety to the overall appearance, the frosted matte acrylic platter helps reveal the drum skin print underneath.
 
Aside from the cosmetic differences and the inclusion of an acrylic platter, all other characteristics of the turntable match the Essential III design. From the sleek MDF plinth, through the high-grade motor with aluminium pulley and precision-engineered main bearing, and onto the 8.6” aluminium tonearm with Ortofon OM 10 cartridge. The Essential III is a remarkable piece of affordable audiophilia.
