All our regularly priced used vinyl goes through and 10 minute Ultra Sonic cleaning (the best cleaning) and is then graded visually under bright light, with a partial play grading when deemed nessary.
We encourage you to view all the pictures and read our comments on the conditions, as we find these to be more beneficial than a standard grade. Occasionally we'll use a grade range (ie: VG / VG+) for either vinyl or cover if condition is borderline and hard to stick in one category.NOTE: We do not grade or mention the condition of original printed inner sleeves (if the record has them) though we will often picture them if included. If this is a concern of yours you can contact us and ask us.
Vinyl - only given to sealed records, or records we personally acquired new, opened them but never played. Of course since the record is sealed we cannot guarantee there are no pressing flaws or minor warping, and since most of the sealed records we sell are out of print and collectible if opened they cannot be returned as the value has been decreased, if we make an exception it maybe subject to a 50% restocking fee.
Cover - is still sealed.
Near Mint (NM):
Vinyl - a unsealed record that looks nearly flawless.
Cover - may have light typical storage wear.
Vinyl - may have one or two light scuff marks but should play just as well as a NM record.
Cover - has some very minor cosmetic issue, like a light crease, light ring wear, nothing that is very noticeable.
Very Good Plus (VG+):
Vinyl - will look played, may have some scuffs and light surface marks / scratches. May have light surface noise such as pops, clicks and crackles but it should be occasional and not consistent and not overwhelming. May have light warping but it should not affect the play.
Cover - will have noticeable wear such as ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc. Could be a couple items (not all) and they should not be major.
Very Good (VG):
Vinyl - will look VERY played, have lot of marks, scuffs, scratches (possibly deep), play with noticeable maybe even consistent background noise but is still listenable. May have warping but it should not affect play.
Cover - will have a couple cosmetic issues ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc and it will be very pronounce.
Vinyl - will play but will have a lot of issues and have a lot of loud background noise. We will rarely list a record in this condition.
Cover - cover is damaged to a point where it is not usable to house a record. All the seams are split, the panels are moldy, major writing all over, etc. The only time we'll list a record with a cover in this shape is if it's rare or the record is in great shape.
Orders ship within two business days.
Rest assured, unlike MANY sellers and even large companies, we know how to ship vinyl (and LaserDiscs) correctly! We used high quality mailers, two to three cardboard stiffners and if the album you are buying is used it is shipped outside the cover to prevent damage to the seams in transit. When it comes to shipping LaserDiscs we don't always ship outside the cover as in transit seam wear is not as common. If you want your discs shipped outside the cover feel free to note that at checkout in the message box.
See our new shipping page HERE for all rates and information.Please note we no longer ship to the following:
Germany - because of your LUCID packaging registration requirements
UK (including Ireland & Scotland) - because of your Brexit VAT registration requirements
