CUSTOMS AND VAT/SALES TAX
For shipments outside the EU I will NOT understate the value of items. To do so is fraud and hence a crime. Also it makes the insurance you will pay for voidable. So please don’t ask as refusal might cause offence and please factor in any applicable charges at your end.
GRADING AND CONDITION
ll records are play graded from start to finish on a SME 30.2/SAT/Lyra Kleos turntable (shown in my profile photograph). All vinyl 12" LP's will be cleaned free of charge on an AudioDesk Systeme Ultrasonic RCM.
LP’s will free of charge be shipped in a clean ,if not new,protective outer sleeve and where appropriate with anti static inner sleeves.

Grading Terms I Use and What They Mean:
1. "SPOTS": Small cloudy blotches usually caused by old poly linings in inner sleeves- sometimes known as "sweating". They usually play through with no noise or effect on the sonic's.
2. "HAIRLINES": Those faint wispy surface marks visible under strong halogen sidelight. They are usually caused by the paper sleeve. They usually play through with no noise or effect on the sonic's.
3. "PAPER SCUFF": A faint surface mark visible under strong halogen sidelight on an area of the LP that is usually caused by the paper inner sleeve. They usually play through with no noise or effect on the sonic's.
4. "STATIC": A faint and occasional background noise that is heard in quieter passages. In most cases this is caused by dirt or dust that is deeply imbedded in the grooves. It can usually be removed with a deep and thorough cleaning.
5. "CRACKLE": A consistent surface noise that is caused by many things including dirty grooves and grooves with deposits stuck to the groove walls. This type of noise is often difficult to remove.
6. "SIBILANCE": A term I use to describe distortion caused by early groove wear. It usually shows up first as a sort of buzzing in the higher scale notes on a piano or a female vocalist. This can only be found by play grading. A record with overall groove wear results in distortion of most of the music. There are many causes for this including the use of too light a tracking force in a newer tonearm and cartridge. Older tonearms and cartridges used very high tracking forces (greater than 5 grams) and can cause groove wear on an older LP. Worn or damaged styli are another cause of groove wear and distortion. Groove wear cannot always be easily spotted by a visual inspection and is best determined through play grading. As mentioned ALL my items are fully play graded.
7. "SCRATCH": A surface mark usually caused by the phonograph needle. These are not always heard, especially on older, heavier pressings that have deeper groove cuts. On newer, thinner pressings, they may result in a tic or pop but not a skip.
8. "NEEDLE SCRATCH": The worst kind of surface mark caused by the phonograph needle. These marks usually disturb the vinyl surface to such a degree that they cause loud pops and in rare cases they may cause a skip or stick.
9. "JACKET RASH": Sometimes called ring wear by other sellers but I use it differently to describe an overall spotty wear that is caused by the wear on the high spots of the paste caused by the bumps in the cardboard under the paste. This is common on older 1950's and early 1960's jackets. It's the earliest sign of wear on a jacket.
10. "FLAKES": Older coated jackets from the 1950's have a heavy coating on the slick,often referred to as laminate,that is prone to cracking and flaking when it dries out and ages.
11. "SPLITS": These flaws are physical separations in the jacket halves. Sometimes the older coated jackets can have cracks in the coating that look like splits when the jacket is actually structurally sound.
12. "SWINGERS": This is an off-center record, i.e., the center hole was not punched concentric with the record. All records are somewhat slightly off center if you measure them very accurately. A certain amount of this is expected and acceptible. Severely off center records can cause harm to the playback of the recording as the needle swings inward and outward to try and track the groove. It is really surprising how bad some records can be off center. Off center records cannot be detected visually, they must be played to uncover this defect.
13 "WARPS". These are records which are not perfectly flat. Mild vertical warps are not uncommon particularly in the thinner LP's of the 1970's and 1980's. Mild warps will be visible when playing the LP as a mild undulation near the LP edge. They rarely affect sound quality. Larger warps can cause woofer "pumping" due to the low frequency wave form and some tonearm/cartridge combinations may part company with the records groove. Some warps are caused by damage from a heat source such as a radiator. These are a serious problem and often result in a HORIZONTAL as well as a VERTICAL warp component. These records are often unplayable and I would never sell a record with a warp caused by heat damage. Such a record is suitable only for darts practice.......
