Do you buy used stuff?

Yup, we are always looking for quality used LPs, CDs, DVDs (and even some books if they are in the range of what we already sell...that being weird pop culture, music, hip lit, bizarre bios, some art books, etc., etc….
And, we are always interested in old Cincinnati & regional music items…. records from artists & labels, tickets, posters, photos… anything & everything.

We also buy used turntables & receivers.

We are always on the search for quality turntables, receivers, speakers, etc. We like brands such as Technics, Pioneer, Bang & Olufsen, Thorens, Denon, Sony, Kenwood, Marantz, Yamaha, etc. These & more are all brands that we can have refurbished before we sell them. The cost of any necessary repairs WILL affect what we offer.

Our buying guidelines are as follows….

We generally pay 1/2 of what we think we can sell the item for, this is an industry standard.

Most of our used CD's & DVD's sell for between 3.99 & 7.99 meaning we pay between $2.00 - $4.00 a disc. If they are scuffed but feel they could play we pay 50 cents and throw 'em in our ever popular buy 5 get 5 free boxes. True, a scuffed CD often plays fine, but to be resold with confidence, they must be visually perfect. We guarantee all off our goods. If we feel we can sell it & we don’t have it in stock we are interested.

Things to remember when selling Vinyl LP's, 7” & even some 78’s…..

Not all Beatles & Elvis albums are worth $1,000. Sorry. We wish they were, we would be retired, but unfortunately (for you) & fortunately (for them) they sold MILLIONS of records; meaning there's a lot of them floating around. But if you have a bunch of nice condition rock n' roll, reggae, vintage R&B and soul, jazz, blues, punk/new wave, indie, hip hop, modern composer/avant garde, old-school country & folk music from all over the world, by all means, bring 'em on down. We also like oddball records from tv, movie, baseball & game show personalities as well as spoken word records. *Most* comedy, classical, show tunes, 40’s-60’s crooners’ LPs are a tough sell.

Condition is very important & they need to have their covers (for LPs, okay for 7”s & 78’s) All vinyl needs to be in "very good" or "like new" condition. Very mild, general wear is often okay.

I have a really big collection. Do you make house calls?

Yes we do. We define "big" as 400 pieces or more. Distance & scheduling factor into this. You'll have to call to set up a time. (513-591-0123) Steps that make this process easier for all involved: Have decent lighting. Make clear distinctions as to what you want to sell and what you don't ahead of time. If they are in some kind of order that's just a bonus! We do not bring cash to house calls. Company checks only, no worries they're as good as gold.

But the”book” / “internet” said....

We don't go by what any price guide says. The internet has more or less rendered price guides useless. Selling prices are in constant flux due to demand, availability of reisssues on CD or LP, etc. Items can be $20 on a Monday & $3 on a Friday…. it all depends on who wants the record, when, and what that person is willing to pay that day. We go by the 50+ combined years of experience we have for what any particular LP can be sold for. We have a very well-earned reputation as straight shooters. You'll get the best deal we can offer given the circumstances of our LP stock at the time.

We look forward to doing business. Give us a call – 513-591-0123
