I make every effort to ensure that each vinyl is of acceptable standard for the buyer, I do this by testing every record before listing and do not list records that jump during playing. My grading for the records I list are as follows:
G (Good) = The record doesn't look great visually, there will be some surface scratches and/or marks, although the record will play ok throughout, though there will be some deterioration of sound quality from the original quality of the vinyl when was new. Sleeve will probably show ring wear round middle and edges with possibly some creases to the sleeve also may have been sellotape repaired.
VG (Very Good) = There may be some light superficial scratches and minor marks at close inspection of the vinyl, however there will be no jumps in the record, the sound quality will be very good and deterioration from original sound of vinyl will be only noticeable from close listening attention from reasonably high quality equipment. Sleeve will show minor if any ringwear or edgewear, only slight, if any creases, occasionally may be sellotaped over minor splits.
EX (Excellent) = The vinyl will look in excellent condition, with no noticeable marks or scratches, sound quality will also be excellent with minimal sound deterioration from original vinyl sound when new. Sleeve will be clean glossy with minimal if any creases or edgewear, no ringwear, no splits repaired or unrepaired.
M (MINT) = Vinyl will be in new/unplayed condition, maybe still sealed, sound reproduction from the vinyl will be 100% perfect (providing played using a decent quality player with an undamaged stylus). Sleeve will be as new shop condition.
These are my basic outlines and I do not profess to be 100% perfect, sometimes I may add a + or - to a grading if I feel that the grading is slightly better or worse than the grading it is closest too. eg. VG+ = as very good although there may only be 1 or 2 hardly noticeable marks(only at very close inspection) to the vinyl and sound quality will be above expected for visual grading of vinyl
Please email me if you are not happy with the grading of the vinyl, or any other reason that you are not happy with your purchase, before deciding wether to leave negative feedback. I will do my upmost to keep the customer satisfied in all cases and being as I am very passionate about keeping vinyl records alive, I am proud to offer records for sale that are all tested personally by myself.
Records are posted in a professional record mailer with cardboard stiffener and are posted within two days of purchase, this will mostly be one day or even day of purchase. I obtain a post office receipt as proof of postage for each item, which can be provided if any items are lost in the post.
Payment is expected within 3 days of auction ending for auctioned items, and payment is required immediately for buy-it-now items, please email if you want an item but cannot pay straight away to discuss options.
Other than that, I thank anyone who does decide to make a purchase and hope that the vinyl delivers expected great pleasure and thank buyers also for keeping vinyl records alive, they are the best music form available in my opinion.
