    Scrathed Records

    Alright All



    Decided if i ever got hold of Outer Space (MIST) then i would build up a collection of vinyl, buy some decks and have a go at DJing,

    So now i am buying vinyl from here and there, only to fing that when they arrive they are scratched usually just as the tunes intro ends and it kicks in = annoying and makes me want to buy the records again, i am just having a moan but does this happen to anyone else?

    unfortunately theres nothing u can do for a scratch. but 75% of the time i thought it was a scratch it was some sticky goo. gently rub your finger over the spot it scratches on. is it raise or is there a blatant scratch down the grooves. if its raised probably just some schmeg u can remove with your fingernail and some warm water

    Re: Scrathed Records

    not really
    are you talkin about new or used records

    This ones going out to each n evrybody in the place, biggin up their chest and screwin up their face,
    listening to the hiphop - jungle - drum n bass, if you wanna get hype then come take a taste.
    Time is going quick and theres no time to waste, certain badboys come into raves to misbehave,
    abusing drugs - pulling out their guns and blades,
    and that aint no way to play
    ALL WE NEED IS UNITED VIBES!

    Re: Scrathed Records

    to be honest i am playing them on a normal record player, i decided not to buy decks til i had built up a collection of vinyl, (am wanting some bad now that i have my 7 records)
    The thing is the new ones play perfect, so i guess it's just that the used ones are knackered, they are resonably old (pacman remix, its jazzy) but if i buy them again may have the same problem.
    Maybe as someone once said "vinyls dead bruv, i need MP3s"

    put nail varnish on the record and wipe it all round works 90 percent of the time,someone on here told me that trick and it works,try it.

    No nail varnish remover would melt it surely

    Someone in another thread said about running a moist matchstick along the grooves i havent tried it myself but try that first before you put chemicals on ya dubs
