To coincide with the release of Queen’s 18 piece 180g vinyl LP box set containing all 15 of their studio albums, Rega were approached by the band to produce a special edition turntable.
Queen by Rega is the result.
The turntable is a brand new product created specifically for Queen. The design of the turntable includes custom Queen graphics (some penned by Freddy Mercury), and incorporates the tonearm technology of the multi-award-winning Rega turntables. Both brand and band are quintessentially English and the combination of engineering and musical achievements make for a perfect match.
Key features of the turntable include:.
- A custom designed high gloss acrylic laminated plinth silk screened with ‘Queen by Rega’ logo.
- Silk screened ‘Queen crest’ platter from artwork created by Freddie Mercury.
- Hand built RB101 tonearm.
- Factory fitted Rega Carbon moving magnet cartridge.
- Low noise low vibration 24v synchronous high performance motor.
- Queen dustcover lid badge.
- Optional upgrade to the handmade high performance moving magnet Rega Bias 2 cartridge, designed specifically for the RB101 tonearm
