RSD2016 RP1 Turntable - Pete McKee Limited Edition
Limited Edition - Only 500 manufactured.
A word from Rega, sponsors of Record Store Day 2016 - "Rega are proud to be a partner again for RSD 2016. It has been apparent from the beginning that the ethos and aims of RSD and Rega in supporting both vinyl replay and specifically the independent retail sector made the relationship a marriage made in heaven. We have again produced a dedicated RSD turntable, this year featuring an iconic design commissioned from renowned Sheffield artist and music fanatic Pete McKee which is bound to create interest and sales in all RSD stores. We will continue to encourage our independent stores to work with independent record stores to promote vinyl replay and mutual musical adventures all year round."
A word from Pete McKee, artist and designer of 'Club Rega' - "As an owner of a Rega turntable I was extremely honoured to be asked to create a piece of artwork to adorn a Limited Edition version of their beautiful RP1 deck. The picture is a homage to the sweaty Beat Clubs of the 60's where the 7" single was king. Sweat dripping from the ceiling, the pulse of imported R&B pounding from the speakers and kids dancing their socks off all night. The association with Rega and Record Store Day is a brilliant marriage, I've been fortunate enough to spend my formative working life employed in various record shops in Sheffield and second hand vinyl stores, those days were the best of my working life, discovering great music on a daily basis and expanding my vinyl collection immensely at the expense of my weekly wage packet."
