Playing our part in the vinyl revival...

Vinyl sales continue to rocket. It's probably mostly down to us, right? Well, we're playing our part.

So it’s now getting on for two months that we’ve had the shop up and running. Seems like only yesterday. From the start we knew that we’d be improving and learning as we went and so it’s proved.

Firstly, access is no longer through the house! Clearly this was never ideal and was only ever a temporary plan. Now resolved. A little juggling of the sheds has opened access down the side of the house. As always, please ring the doorbell if the gate is closed. This isn’t to keep you out, but to the keep the Plectrum’s hound, Hector, in.

Secondly, we didn’t have a turntable in the shop. You’re in for a treat now! We’ve got a demo table of the Rega RP1’s that we also sell. These fantastic pieces of kit have scored 5 star reviews across the board. Up and running virtually straight out of the box, with plenty of scope for even further improvements down the line. You’re welcome to hear anything in the shop. There’s also a pair of headphones available.

Stock wise, as with our online side, things are constantly moving. Behind the scenes we’re always sourcing new records. This is the most challenging and rewarding aspect of running the shop. Online we sell Internationally with records having gone to  an astounding 43 countries so far this year.

Somewhere in the world there’s always going to be a vinyl head after pretty much any record we stock. In the shop we’re getting a joyfully diverse mix too. We’re listening to what you’re after so we can keep giving a fix to the local vinyl junkies…

Finally, we’ve hooked up with another excellent company to supply us with quality cartridges, phono stages and accessories. We’ll be making an announcement shortly.

Once again, a huge thank you to all those who’ve supported us. Particularly those regular customers who have been spreading the word. Social Media is great, but nothing beats word of mouth!

Cheers Matt.

Tuesday to Friday 10am to 4pm Saturday 11am to 2pm.
