Rega: here's the exclusive RP1 turntable for the 2016's Record Store Day
Pete Mckee is a Sheffield's artist and designer most well-known for his work with Oasis, Teenage Cancer Trust, Warp Films and Arctic Monkeys.
The turntable will go on sale in Record Store Day participating stores and Rega dealers on Saturday 16th April. Only 500 RP1s with the ‘Club Rega’ design have been made, making it a very limited and much-desired collector’s item.
Pete McKee said: "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”.
Rega, sponsors of Record Store Day 2016, is a high-end audio equipment manufacturer based in the UK, with headquarters in Essex, and was founded in 1973. The company's name was formed of the initials of its two founders (RElph & GAndy). http://www.rega.co.uk/
