Its nearly that time of year again when we can get our hands on some nice limited edition vinyl.
Saturday April 18th marks the annual return of Record Store Day, a day when we can celebrate and support our local independent record shops. Many artists from every genre have recorded music only to be released on this day and usually they are limited to small numbers. There will be new releases and re-releases, pretty much something for every vinyl collector.
This year record store day is being sponsored by British Hi-Fi manufacturers Rega. Rega make a wide range of top quality Hi-Fi products and are famously know for their quality turntables. To help promote this event Rega will be releasing a limited edition “Record Store Day” Turntable. Only 500 have been made and are available from a handful of dealers in the UK including Audio-T. If that isn’t enough 12 of the 500 turntables have been signed by world famous artists like Mark Knopfler , Chrissie Hynde and Royal Blood to name but a few.
Preston’s independent record shop is Action Records on Church St and will be participating once again with Record Store Day. Be sure to get there early as there will be a pretty long queue. When you have been to Action Records come and see us at Audio-T and we will be happy to give it a spin.
We will have the Record Store Day turntables for sale on the day, and we also stock the Rega RP1, RP3 , RP6 and RP8
