Tennessee whiskey maker Jack Daniel’s have always been very community-focused, whether in the regional music scene or community welfare. Now Jack Daniel’s has partnered with premium San Diego brand Wrensilva to come up with a handmade hi-fi console finished with aged Jack Daniel’s barrel staves.
The limited-edition Wrensilva and Jack Daniel’s console will be auctioned off to the highest bidder between now until 22nd July, on Charitybuzz, with proceeds going to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is a non-profit charity that provides financial assistance to musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet. After more than a year of cancelled gigs, consider this a great opportunity to show your support for live music.
The flagship Wrensilva M1 Console comes with a flurry of Jack Daniel’s accents, including a front panel made from barrel staves, custom caddy designed to hold three bottles of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, upholstered drinks mat and a custom-engraved turntable platter.
Powering the Jack Daniel’s Wrensilva M1 console is a 300W-per-channel class D amplifier from Bang & Olufsen mated to a set of two-way bass-reflex speakers designed by Wrensilva, comprising an 8” coated-paper cone driver and 1” textile-dome tweeter with removable ‘speaker frames’. The belt-driven turntable, which has been isolated from cabinet vibrations, uses a 9” vertical Yoke tonearm with an Ortofon 2m bronze moving-magnet cartridge. It will spin your plates at either 33-1/3 RPM or 45 RPM.
The bidding is on, and at the time of writing, bidding has reached $12,001 with 25 bids placed.
Also consider that if you get one, you will be in good company. The only other people getting one are the artists enlisted to help Jack Daniel’s and Wrensilva promote the auction, namely Zedd, K. Michelle, Ashley McBryde, and De La Ghetto.
