Caroline Mickler has inked a deal with musical equipment distributor JHS on behalf of Apple Corps to produce a line of instruments and accessories for young children based on the Beatles-inspired film Yellow Submarine.
The Yellow Submarine instrument line includes a ukulele, junior half-size guitar outfit, outfit (including nylon strung guitar, carry bag, guitar strap, pitch pipe, spare set of strings and plectrum), along with two-inch-wide polyester webbing straps from 39 inches to 58 inches and a variety of picks for ages three and up.
“The fantastic Yellow Submarine designs, the wonderful songs and the positive message the film sends out about music make it an ideal inspiration for a range of colorful, fun and fab instruments,” says Ben Chapman, media and artist coordinator, JHS. “We’re delighted to be working with Apple Corps to help budding Beatles to learn, play and make happy music on instruments specially designed for them.”
The picks and straps are available now while the instruments are set to launch closer to Christmas at music shops and toy stores.
