in my opinion you will get the closest to the Beatles sound if you go the DIY route, more specifically take a look at the Drip REDD.47 in combination with 1db of compression from the Drip Altec compressor.
enclosures for both projects you get for less than $90 from diy-racked.
the preamp as a whole will cost you less than $500.
unbeatable value for money.
knowledge on how to get along w/ a soldering iron is the only prerequisit and should be manageable as even i was able to do it.
do yourself a favour and go for it!
best wishes.
