Vinyl’s Prior To Being Graded
All vinyl’s LP’s & 12” Single are play tested before they are graded and listed, any marks or scratches will be checked to ensure that the vinyl does play without any problems and if there is any problems it will be stated on the listing. Vinyl’s that are very expensive and rare will be played on both sides in full. All 7” singles are played all the way through on both sides to ensure that they do play, 7” singles are more temperamental.
I don’t and wont visually grade a vinyl with out testing it, as you will find that most of the time the vinyl might look nice but sounds dreadful, skips, jumps or something else.
Vinyl Record Grading
Mint – The vinyl record is new and has not been played and is still sealed in its original cover.
Near Mint – Vinyl looks and sounds perfect.
Excellent – Vinyl shows light wear and also some signs of use
Very Very Good – Vinyl has been played a lot might have a few very light scuffs, marks & very light scratches, which don’t effect play.
Very Good – Vinyl has been heavily played, might have scuffs, marks and light scratches on it, will play all the way through, with very little deterioration in sound quality.
Good – Vinyl has a lot of light scratches, marks & scuffs. Will get some noise, It might jump occasionally but still plays.
OKAY – Vinyl has been played so heavily that there are lots of scratches, marks & scuffs, which will effect play.
Poor – Vinyl has been trashed it has loads of scratches and jumps a lot, might be cracked. Would only be listed if it is a rare vinyl.
Bad – Vinyl would be better off in the bin or if it is a rare vinyl then can be used for a slot filler.
If there is a cross over between grading’s then it will be a mix of both, i.e. One side of the vinyl is in excellent condition and the other side of the vinyl will be in very very good condition.
