Rare Control Vinyl Auction for Christchurch Earthquake Relief Fund

About a week and a half ago, the city of Christchurch in New Zealand was hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake, followed by a series of large aftershocks. Thankfully, no one died as a result of the earthquake, but now the city is faced with a massive clean-up mission that will cost billions of dollars.

In light of recent events, we here at Serato are keen as to contribute to the cause down in Christchurch, and have opened the secret Serato vault to auction some rare/sold out Control Vinyl and Serato Pressings. This week we will be auctioning Control Vinyl and next week, Serato Pressings. All the proceeds from these auctions will be donated to the Christchurch Earthquake Relief Fund.

Four auctions will start on Tuesday 14th September NZST and they'll run all week, which should give you plenty of time to bid on them. Here's a list of the control vinyl we're auctioning this week:

A pair of large hole 7'' Control Vinyl
  • Never sold in stores
  • Made for promotional use only
  • Limited pressing
 

A pair of grey marbled Control Vinyl

  • Never sold in stores
  • A "freak" pressing, limited numbers

This is really cool. I still say you should have put up a pair of White Vinyl to see how high it would go (maybe signed by the Serato developers???). Looking at the bidding above after only a few hours - probably would be insane.
