Record Grading

We take pride in the condition of the records on offer. The majority of pre owned records are professionally cleaned and housed in polythene sleeves in order to protect the sleeves. We grade in accordance with Record Collector standards. Here's a summary. 


These are absolutely perfect in every way. Factory sealed, unplayed.


Near mint records are shiny and free of visible defects. No writing, stickers, other markings or spindle marks appear on the label. No major factory defects are present. NM sleeves have no creases, ring wear or seam splits of any kind.


Excellent + records are very clean, they may have minor paper scuffing but certainly no scratches, warps etc. Minor ringwear to the labels and minimal surface noise. Excellent + sleeves may have very minor shelf wear but no pen marks, tears etc. 


The record still plays through without skipping, so it can serve as filler until something better comes along. But it has significant surface noise and groove wear. The label is worn and exhibits significant ring wear, heavy writing or obvious damage caused by trying remove tape or stickers and failing miserably.
