Who buys vinyl records?

You have decided to part ways with your great uncle's vinyl record collection. That's great! The first step is always just making the decision to sell your records and move on.

If you wanted to go a little further...

Take a look at your old records and find out:

  • The Artist
  • The Title
  • The Condition

The condition can be just as important, if not more, than the name of the singer or band. Even if it is a rare album or a single  from a popular artist, the record itself has little or no value if it was not taken care of. Call Paul to learn if your records are worth money!

There are 2 different ways to accurately grade a vinyl record.

Play Grading

Play Grading is when you place the vinyl record on a turntable and listen very closely to the sound quality, watch for skipping and other sound defects.

It's best to try out a number of systems first before settling on one turn table. Be sure to choose the turn table that most accurately plays the records. Placing the vinyl record on a turn table is also a good way to see if it is warped or bubbled from heat damage.

Visual Grading

Visual Grading is when you use a particular light source at a short distance away from the record as you inspect it. Halogen and direct natural sunlight work best.

Defects that were not visible on lower wattage lights now become profound when using a stronger light source or direct natural sunlight. As with the Play Grading, finding a light source that works best for you is important. It ensures your records were graded and priced appropriately.

There were only two copies known of Do I Love You (Indeed I Do), which is a rare 45-rpm Northern Soul track by Frank Wilson. This copy sold in 2009 for $37,000. Our preferred vinyl records are 45’s and 78’s. 

There is always a market for old vinyl records! There were changes made to Bob Dylan’s second album before its 1963 release. According to Record Mecca there were four songs replaced with newly recorded tracks, but a mistake was made at the pressing plant and the old version instead of the new masters were pressed. There was an unknown number pressed. Only a few copies of the old version have surfaced over the years, and less than two dozen of the mono copies are known to be in existence. They are believed to be one of the most valuable records in the world. We can provide information on how much your old records are worth after a thorough assessment and vinyl record grading inspection.
