Condition

We are mainly selling used vinyl records.
All vinyl records are graded visually. We listen heavy scratches on expensive items only.
All accessories are NEW.


Grading System

NEW

New goods, Not a used/secondhand goods.

SS(still sealed new disc)

New disc, sealed by shrink wrap. Not opened & played UNP(unplayed new disc) New disc, not sealed originally.

M(Mint)

Nice condition used records looks like a NEW. However, accidentally comes with non expected slight noises in rare cases. M-(Near Mint) The record itself is in near mint condition with no major surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in near mint condition free from major damages.

EX(Excellent)

The record shows some sign of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.

VG(Very Good)

The record obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratches. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.

G(Good)

The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. the cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration,etc.

F(Fair)

The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.

P(Poor)

The record will not play property due to sceatches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing. B(Bad) The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection-filler.

CDs, LDs & Tapes As a general rule, CDs and cassettes either play perfectly - in which case they are in Mint condition - or they don't, in which case their value is minimal. Cassette tape is liable to deteriorate with age, even if it remains unplayed, so care should be taken when buying old tapes. CDs are difficult to grade visually: they can look perfect but actually be faulty, while in other cases they may appear damaged but still play perfectly. Cassette and CD inlays and booklets should be graded in the same way as record covers and sleeves. In general, the plastic containers for cassettes and CDs can easily be replaced if they are broken or scratched, but card covers and digipaks are subject to the same wear as record sleeves.
