What will you be getting out of bed for on April 19th? That's right, records. But there are plenty of other vinyl-related reasons to wake up in the month leading up to the big day. There are a bunch of in-store appearances, special offers and competitions on right now, and we'd like to walk you through just a few of them.
Urban Records, Perth
Perth vinylists, your local Urban Records is running an awesome special at the moment. Get a free piece of vinyl up to $35 with any Pro-Ject turntable purchase. Has there ever been a better excuse to upgrade your equipment?
This is a tough one to redeem if you live outside of Perth, but those WA residents looking for vinyl should certainly check it out at 117 Oxford St Leederville. They'll have lots of special releases available in-store on Record Store Day too.
Rockaway Records, Brisbane
Brisbane's Rockaway Records will have heaps of Pro-Ject turntables available until April 19th (and after) with some awesome offers available. If you've got a lot of records but nothing good enough to enjoy it with, Rockaway is offering the Pro-Ject Juke Box all-in-one amplified turntable with hi-fi bookshelf speakers for only $999 - a full saving of $200. On top of that, they'll throw in $100 worth of vinyl to get you going if you buy before April 19th.
If you're in Brisbane, they're your guys for great deals on Pro-Ject turntables as well as an enormous range of vinyl and special releases. They'll also be having high fidelity demonstrations with some of their Pro-Ject gear - definitely not something to miss if you're interested in hearing vinyl at the best possible quality.
And here's something we can all get in on. The official Record Store Day Australia Instagram page @RSDAustralia is running an awesome competition for our Debut Carbon Phono USB, valued at $679. To enter, take a picture with Instagram depicting "The one album you would rather die than part company with" and a brief description why. We know it can be tough to choose one, but do your best. Include the hashtag #RSDAusComp and tag @RSDAustralia in your photo. Enter here and then share with your friends!
There will be a bunch more specials and competitions to be announced soon. Get in contact with your local store to ask about more specials and events leading up and on the day.
