Rega RP1 Limited Edition Record Store Day Turntable
All stock has the black felt mat
Record Store Day are proud to reveal this year’s limited edition turntable from our official audio and turntable partner, Rega Research.
The artwork on the Rega RP1 turntable has been designed by iconic Sheffield artist, Pete Mckee, most well-known for his work with Oasis, Teenage Cancer Trust, Warp Films and Arctic Monkeys. Only 500 RP1s with the ‘Club Rega’ design have been made, making it a very limited and much-desired collector’s item.

"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."
Pete McKee, artist and designer of 'Club Rega'
Rega has long been the watchword for top-quality analogue , but no longer do you have to pay a premium for excellence. And if you're new to LPs and wonder what all the fuss is about, wonder no more. The all new Rega RP1 is the way to hop onboard and discover why records sound better than CDs.
Featuring a completely new tonearm the RB101, this entry-level model comes ready-fitted with a cartridge, proving once more that you don’t need loads of dosh to afford a cracking record player. Designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point.
Excellent build quality, reliability and ease of use combine to make a product which will offer a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Omitting all the usual gimmicks allows us to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce records accurately.
Using a manual speed change rather than an automatic mechanism, eliminates speed inconsistencies and reduces wear of the drive belt. The money we save is spent across the design including a new hand assembled RB101 tonearm, precision main bearing, phenolic resin platter and a high quality low vibration motor which would normally be used on a turntable costing two or three times the amount.
The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that this turntable will last for many years. The RP1 is the first in a new generation of Rega turntables offering far greater performance than their predecessors.
We are confident the performance of this amazing new product will impress you. Rest assured the only thing entry level about the RP1 is the price!
- Brand new Rega RB101 tonearm.
