|GRADING/CONDITION OF OUR ITEMS|
95% of our stock items are in at least excellent condition, and many are mint.
This applies to sleeves as well as records and CDs etc. However we do have a few items which are in lesser condition.
If an item is in less than excellent condition, this will be clearly indicated in the description, eg: EX-/EX, VG/EX etc, where the first grading is for the sleeve/cover and the second is for the record/CD.
We grade all our items using the long established Record Collector magazine system. Here is a guidline:
The record/CD is in brand new condition with no surface marks or distortion in sound quality. The cover and any extras items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be mint.
The record/CD shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little (if any) lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have very minor wear and/or creasing.
EXCELLENT MINUS (EX-):
The record/CD has been played a few times and will show a little minor wear, but sound quality will still be almost perfect. The cover and packaging might have one or two small but noticeable defects, such as a strong crease or a small mark where a sticker has been removed.
VERY GOOD (VG):
The record/CD has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticable surface marks and the ocassional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects is acceptable.
The record has been played so much that the sound quality is noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding., scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration, etc.
IMPORTANT: Due to the sheer quantity of items we list, we grade everything visually.
However, if there are any noticable marks on a record/CD, we always ensure that it plays properly before listing it.
All our CD's are genuine original items, we NEVER sell bootlegs, counterfeits or home made CDR copies.
We offer a full money back guarantee on all our items. If you are unhappy with an item for any reason, just contact us for a replacement copy or a full refund.
IMPORTANT: Our returns policy only applies when you contact us first, before leaving any feedback.
