NAD Electronics, a manufacturer of high performance home audio components, has unveiled a limited edition turntable featuring a custom design by Toronto-based illustrator, Brandon Serbec of Mystery Meat Design.
Eight of the brand’s popular C 558 turntables were given the vinyl-wrapped treatment as part of NAD Electronics’ partnership with Record Store Day Canada. While these limited edition turntables will not be available for public purchase, Canadian vinyl listeners will have the opportunity to win one of these unique turntables in a contest being run jointly by NAD Electronics’ Canadian distributor, Lenbrook, and the Record Store Day Canada organization.
As a Canada-based brand, NAD Electronics has wanted to support Record Store Day Canada to celebrate Canada’s musical history
All eight of the limited edition turntables will feature the same design of Serbec’s—a collage of live music venues inspired by well-known locales like the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver and neighborhood pubs like The Ship in St. John’s.
“Rather than rely on a lot of stereotypical tropes of Canada and music, we wanted to pay homage to the iconic live music venues around the country that are ground zero for talent development,” says June Ip, vice president of Marketing for NAD Electronics.
“Live music can be found just about anywhere, from concert halls to church basements and everything in between. And while we may not always acknowledge it, these venues are part of the musical heritage of our communities and our country.”
