What, and how, we buy:
Pre-Recorded Audio Recordings:
We are interested in all types of audio (Music/Non-Music) recordings, in all genres, from all regions of the world, all eras, and on all media formats. Vinyl Records (33's, 45's, 78's, 16's), Cassette Tapes, 8-Track Tapes, Open Reel (Reel-To-Reel), CDs, Mini-Disc, etc. It's all valid. Having said that, when selling Audio Recordings to us, there are many factors as to what we can/will pay for an item. Titles matter the most, and condition is a close second. Customer demand, and store stock, are always changing and therefore also taken into account. Some formats are more in demand than others and even that varies from title to title. All of these factors, if, and how fast, we think we can sell an item determines what we will pay for it. The point is, we are open, we will look at anything, and pay you fairly if we think we can sell it. If you have some media you wish to trade or sell to us, give us a call at (323) 661-4533.
p.s. We are totally aware that people can get weird about selling their old music. By that we mean, for example, you may feel embarrassed about something you might have listened to and would rather just donate it. Forget all of that! We will not judge you. We will look at anything. We just might have a buyer for it. You'd be surprised.
p.p.s. We also are aware that people think that by trading in their used media, they will be taken advantage of. Not true here. Yes, we are a business, and therefore need to turn a profit, but suppose you have a nice copy of something that is in demand, and can sell quickly... There's a very good chance you will be pleasantly surprised with what we can offer. Give us a chance.
