After the sale and prior to shipping we often (not always) will spot check a record on the turntable to verify condition. We will gladly play test any LP upon request before or after sale. If there is an issue we will relay that information to you.
We try to be as transparent as we can be with our listings! Even so occasionally mistakes are made and in that case we will do our best to address them. Normally we offer to pay return shipping if the mistake was clearly ours. If you return an item it must be shipped via US Media Mail. Shipments outside of the USA are not eligible for paid return shipping. Even so, we will do our best to give special attention to overseas orders prior to shipment to make sure your item are as described.
Sealed. If it is sealed and has a hole punch or a saw cut it will be noted.
Near Mint (NM)
LP may or may not be glossy. If it is it is usually noted, but not always. Rarely there may be a tiny scratch or scuff or a little too much surface dust in which case we will indicate NM-. Most of our NM records are nearly perfect.
An LP that visually does not pass for Near Mint, but very likely will sound like one on playback.
Very Good Plus, Plus (VG++)
An LP on the high end of the VG+ records we grade.
Very Good Plus (VG+)
LP has a few scratches on each side. Scratches are light and will not impact play in a significant way. There may be some short ticks and short spots of noise, but infrequent.
Very Good (VG)
This will have many visible scratches on the surface. Some VG records have background noise some don’t. Some sound as good as a VG+ record.
An LP that has a lot of noise and many scratches. Some G rated disks are salvageable with a good cleaning.
A worthless item that you may buy for the cover or for the chance that part of the record may sound alright. We generally do not stock LPs with this rating.
When we visually grade we describe what we see and sometimes what we hear. If so we will indicate play tested in the listing.
Thank your for considering our products. If requested we offer free domestic shipping when three or more items are purchased.
