Only 500 units of the award- winning Rega RP1 have been manufactured for Record Store Day and are likely to become very sought after, collectors’ items.

 Notes to Editor

Record Store Day was conceived 9 years ago in the USA and was brought to the UK a year later. Now in its 8th year and co-ordinated by the Entertainment Retailers Association and Spencer Hickman, the day brings together hundreds of the UK’s independent record shops to celebrate their own unique culture.  Exclusive vinyl is made available on the day and the stores often have live shows and other in store events to celebrate the day.
