Description

Welcome. On offer is a brand new copy of the Beatles in Mono, now long sold out, made in the EU/UK. Virtually unheard of in this Mint condition.
14 superb 180gm LPs remastered from the original analog tapes (more info below). Top loading White Album even has a number!
I am the original owner, having received it on the day of release back in 2014...consider these first pressings. 
Please note that the physical box itself did not originally come shrink wrapped. Rather each album is sealed in cellophane with adhesive seals. They are all unplayed and the accompanying book is in the original shrink wrap. 
I only took Please Please Me out to photograph to show the quality of the vinyl and sleeve reproduction--all top notch. Today is the first time it has ever been out of its sleeve.
This is a heavy box so expect higher than normal insured w Signature Confirmation UPS Ground shipping rates (in the US). It will be packed securely in a sturdy 275lb-rated double walled box.

I am happy to ship multiple items you win together to save postage, if possible, but I do not ship Media Mail: things always get damaged then you are disappointed/mad.

 

I am proud to be an honest, Christian, and contributing member of the eBay community. Please bid with confidence.

 

Thanks for reading and be sure to check out the rest of my listing for great rarities, audiophile vinyl, and first pressings.



The Beatles in mono: This is how most listeners first heard the group in the 1960s, when mono was the predominant audio format. Up until 1968, each Beatles album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the mono as primary. THE BEATLES IN MONO VINYL BOX SET is released in mono on fourteen 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork, newly mastered from the analogue master tapes. 

In an audiophile-minded undertaking, The Beatles' acclaimed mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Sean Magee and GRAMMY®-winning mastering supervisor Steve Berkowitz. While THE BEATLES IN MONO CD boxed set released in 2009 was created from digital remasters, for this new vinyl project, Magee and Berkowitz cut the records without using any digital technology. Instead, they employed the same procedures used in the 1960s, guided by the original albums and by detailed transfer notes made by the original cutting engineers. 

Working in the same room at Abbey Road where most of The Beatles' albums were initially cut, the pair first dedicated weeks to concentrated listening, fastidiously comparing the master tapes with first pressings of the mono records made in the 1960s. Using a rigorously tested Studer A80 machine to play back the precious tapes, the new vinyl was cut on a 1980s-era VMS80 lathe. 

Manufactured for the world at Optimal Media in Germany, The Beatles' albums are presented in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging. The boxed collection's exclusive 12-inch by 12-inch hardbound book features new essays and a detailed history of the mastering process by award-winning radio producer and author Kevin Howlett. The book is illustrated with many rare studio photos of The Beatles, fascinating archive documents, and articles and advertisements sourced from 1960s publications.

Albums included in the box set are REVOLVERMAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR, RUBBER SOUL, WITH THE BEATLES, MONO MASTERS (3LP SET), THE BEATLES (2LP SET), BEATLES FOR SALE, SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND, PLEASE PLEASE MEHELP! and A HARD DAY'S NIGHT.
