(SEE THIS MEN AT WORK RECORD OVER THERE? WE HAVE  10 COPIES IN STORAGE AND NEVER NEED ONE AGAIN…EVAR!!!)

 

First of all CONDITION of the records is always very important! However, if a record is rare or desirable it is sometimes acceptable to buy a great record in a trashed cover. It is very rarely acceptable to buy a trashed record in a perfect cover.

 

Condition: 

1.) Records with deep scratches, severe warpages or a visible crack in the vinyl are never acceptable.

 

2.) Covers where the cat has used them for a scratching post are sad things to see, but if it’s a desirable title and the vinyl is good we’ll give it a shot (we might have a replacement cover sometime). The same goes with split seams, and slight water damage.

 

3.) Severe water damage with resulting black mold is an awful thing to see and to breath in. If they’re too far gone just put them in the trash, as sad as it may be, because it becomes a respiratory issue when mold is involved! Lite water damage, where there is no mold, however, can often be remedied, covers can be switched out, and if the record is okay that’s the important part.

 

4.) Having said that the record is the important part…please don’t bring in albums that don’t have jackets and sleeves. 45s are the exception to that, because people buy and sell them without the sleeves all of the time.

    What vintage equipment do you currently have in stock? Would love to find a Yamaha YP-D6, YP-D71 or YP-D8 turntable. If you happen to come across one, I would happily take it off your hands.

    1. We don’t have any Yamaha turntables right now, but will keep you in mind if we get one in! Right now, turntable stock is pretty low, but we do have a BIC and a Dual for sale.

      That sounds like good stuff. We are certainly interested in the LPs and 45’s, and possibly the equipment. If you could call me at 614 569 6009 I would be more than happy to set up an appointment to see this stuff!
      Best regards! -David (owner)
