SIGNED MAINARDI ~ Cello Recital ~ Ex DGG LPEM 19054 Tulip, 3/56


The first 1000 issues of this recording have been signed personally by Enrico Mainardi. This issue is number 997.

VINYL, visual grading: Excellent with a few light scuffs. As I don't have my own professional cleaning equipment, I consider (and recommend) this to the buyer. In my experience many records easily gain a grade with professional cleaning. For detailed information regarding my grading, see below.

SLEEVE: Date 3/56 on back. Worn around the edges. Seam split at the lower half back. Missing right lower corner on the front.

LABELS: Some spindle traces.

Please also look at the detailed photos.

No reserve.

For a total amount of more than 300 USD is registered shipping for free up to 1 kg.

I ship from Sweden!

The record will be removed from the sleeve, put in a vinyl sleeve and then in a new, sturdy, double sided and oversized corrugated cardboard mailer.

For the three highest grades the records are visually graded. If I have had any doubts about the visual grading, or if a bidder asks for it, I will also play grade the record. I assume all records need cleaning and leave that to the buyer.

M: Mint. I only use this grade when a record is sealed.
NM: Near Mint. I won't grade any unsealed vinyl higher than this. The vinyl looks unplayed, but there might be surface marks from the inner sleeve, and there might be a few light spindle marks present on the labels.
NM-: Not quite Near Mint, has cosmetic flaws but should play NM.

For the following grades at least a part of each record (if not both sides in their entirety) has been play graded:

VG++: Excellent. Looks unflawed but not new; sound is fine.
VG+: Has cosmetic flaws, mild surface noise or short patches of ticking, but sound fine overall.
VG: Has moderate noise throughout or one or two bad patches from scratches.

Where a record is scratched or noisy I often enclose a sound clip.


In case you don't agree with my grading or have any other issue with my listing, please contact me and we shall work it out. I will give full refunds (item price + shipping costs), however the shipping costs for sending the item back is for the buyer unless I have made a significant mistake.
