Vinyl Dealers: What to Identify when Looking for a Dealer

By Seth Frank Subscribe to RSS | January 25th 2012 | Views:

For some folks, vinyl albums will forever continue on as the best sounding sort of music medium, regardless of what new technologies may or will emerge. The love of the sound is what vinyl lovers live for, and hearing the needle hardly scratch the record makes a person jump for happiness. While fewer and fewer records hit the market because more and more indivduals collect or sell their old LPs, fewer and fewer businesses that sell vinyl only are still alive. Even today, much of the inventory of most vendors are from individuals who had duplicate or sealed copies or old, used albums they no longer want and decided to sell the albums or donated them to a business. If you drive around your city, chances are you won’t find a dealer selling vinyl albums, and if you do, most will sell CDs as well.

What to Look for

A search engine can help direct you to various online stores that sell an assortment of different albums at different prices. All the stores you do come across will sell albums in three different conditions: used, sealed, or sealed with a bend in a seam, and of course, the used albums may have some discolored artwork on the front. If you’re interested in Jimi Hendrix vinyl, you might find multiple stores that sell both new and used copies; of course, the rare Hendrix records will likely be used while the popular ones may still come sealed.

The state of the record itself will control the price tag, and an individual will pay a bit more for the same Hendrix album if it’s sealed compared to an LP that was opened and had a bend in the seam. Another factor that decides price is the quantity available, and a rare LP that’s been used can still go for more than a popular album that’s been sealed. Still, most websites will post detailed descriptions of the item to help you locate exactly what it is you are looking for. One feature you do want is to get a money-back guarantee for any album that you purchase so that you are not getting an LP that fails after a few uses. What’s superb about websites is most will include a bargain bin section that sells discounted records; however, many of these deals are for particular records. These bargain bins are useful, as you might discover a Metallica vinyl records for less on one site than on another. Another aspect to consider is looking for stores with wide selections of music from the artist you want an album of, as the bigger the inventory, the cheaper the prices.
