The Boring bit ;
Most of the records I sell have been stored for many years, even decades. Some will have dust that can be seen by the eye, some may look clean but have deep seeded dust from being 40 or 50 years old. This may initially affect the playback quality.
I work full time and have a young family so I don’t have time to play every record I list, so if you receive a record and it doesn’t sound as you think it should, please have it properly cleaned (with a good, well known record cleaner) and replay.
Unless I have stated that I have, then I WILL NOT have play tested the record myself, and the grading above will be a VISUAL GRADING ONLY. I will NOT have graded the record based on sound, and therefor accept no returns based on sound. However, If you want me to playtest the record and feedback to you before buying, I am more than happy do this. Please don’t click buy it now and then ask me to playtest, or even worse, buy a record then complain if you’ve not took me up on this offer.
Please do not contact me asking for a part refund. I’ve had a few chancers simply looking for an excuse to claw some money back on their purchase, usually dealers (looking to maximise their sell on profits). Needless to say, this is not how I operate.
I am willing to post abroad.
Please find below a grading system that I tend to go by. Hopefully with this there will be no confusion. Thanks. References to audio are only relevant if the record has been play tested (please read above).
Very Good (VG)
A VG-rated vinyl has experienced a lot of use. It’s still useable, but it’ll carry a few distortions. Ranked above a G-rated record, a VG-rated record often carries pops and clicks. It might have light visible scratches, and it may have split edges. For the most part, a VG-rated record is undamaged. Upon closer inspection, however, its use will be apparent—both visually and audibly.
Very Good Plus (VG+)
The next step up, a VG+ record has little faults. A VG+ record may have several inaudible marks and a little rub. Fine needle lines are acceptable, however none of these should be felt by touch. Its audio will likely have slight background crackle. As with a VG record, however, close inspection may reveal its age.
An Excellent record is similar to a VG+ record. Its light marks will be difficult to spot, however, as will be its audio distortions. A lot of Ex-rated records have been in and out of their sleeve only a few times. A handful or less of hairlines may be present. Their minute signs of use, generally, reflect high-quality care.
Near Mint (NM)
A Near Mint record is a fantastic investment. It looks glossy, and it’s clearly only been played several times. NM vinyl has little to no markings, and its package is either untouched or nearly untouched. Don’t expect to find any distortions on a NM record. In essence: A NM record is imperfect only in its one-or-two-time use.
A Mint record is perfect. It’s never been played, and it might’ve never been removed from its package. It’s fully sealed, and it has no blemishes or audio distortions.
