«What Instruments did the Beatles Use?» Make the list of the instruments and give the Rusian translation.

«Never has a band had the kind of influence over culture, music and musicians the way the Beatles did. From the way they sounded to the way they looked and the clothes they wore, they were copied by bands for decades after their peak. If they used an instrument or an amp, the sales for that type and brand would go up dramatically»
