When you sell a record collection, we typically pay from $2 to $5 for strong-selling LPs. Please Note: while many LPs are of great interest to us, the vast majority of those in today's market have little to no monetary value. The fastest and easiest way of determining the general value of your collection is to call us.

We are always looking for sought-after titles, and there are some rarities that fetch $20 to $50 or more. Those records, we do pay more then $3 for. On the other hand, there are some LPs that we can not use at all because they are scratched, weak-sellers, or we have too many of them. LPs that are scratched badly, scuffed, or moldy we are not interested in. When we offer to buy a record collection, we base our offer on supply and demand, conditions of vinyl and cover, as well as other market conditions.

We buy rock, heavy metal, jazz, alternative, soul, disco, reggae, funk and other genres of music.

We do not buy classical, opera, pop like Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Montovani, showtunes, soft rock, big band, Christmas, polka.
