can any1 recommend anyware online for vinyl?
Redeye Records, Chemical Records, Surus, Mirage 2000 Records, Juno, Nu-Urban Music, Dnbsource, list goes on
+ Discogs & ebay for rarer releases
Basically i use Redeye records for 90% of new releases, Chemical for exclusive bits and Discogs or Ebay to grab stuff i've slept on or can't get through the aforementioned.
Chemical, by far the best imo
Redeye's better than Chemical in my opinion. Faster delivery, better customer service and the website is nicer to browse.
its a tough call between chemical and redeye, they are both brilliant, with either store i can order new releases friday afternoon and get them delivered sat morning. redeye comes with free stickers yay, chemicals email notification is better.
all the others can do 1 and heres why imo
juno = ur too expensive, but honestly i think its the best website and customer service is swish if u should ever need it. they update the new releases a lil late tho and by them I've bagged from red or chem. also its harder to recycle their record mailers
imo records = customer service is on the poor side in my experience
bm soho - ok in store but online they don't actually appear to keep up with new releases
mirage - too many bad experiences with them, id be a fool to use again
intense - not a nice website and don't stock all the new releases, fine if you like it more mainstream and don't buy vinyl as regularly, but i think its slightly more expensive
nu - urban - fine but limited styles stocked, my works internet browser has trouble playing their audio clips
surus - brilliant website and stock earlier test presses. expensive tho
htfr - fisher price my first record shop
there are a few more but i haven't used them.
I dont no whether to agree or say thats one way of killing off some good record shops.
Always used redeye, chemical a few times, discogs for the rarer bits
yeah, don't get me wrong tho, i have a lot of respect for almost all record shops, especially in todays economy and digital era
those are just my opinions / experiences of the other shops I've used as a consumer. they need to step their game up if they want to compete. you can't deny redeye and chemical's significance. thats why so many people swear by them.
mail order is great, but you can beat going in store, wish there was more local to me
Yeah chemical or redeye are the best. I hate the player on chemical, everything sounds like its been ripped of youtube, whereas redeyes sounds normal.
Purely for that reason I use redeye, and maybe for some stickers too lol
I think chemical has a nicer site than redeye, but they are all decent
chemical and red eye.
also intense records you get 10% off if you sign up for an account
Seriously though, Redeye Records every time.
What most people of said, I get mine from Chemical and/or Red Eye, depending on their stock, but Surus is brilliant for promos and test presses so I keep my eyes peeled there as they stock a lot of my favourite labels with loads of exclusive bits.
chemical, redeye.... htfr is a turd on the pavement with a shoe mark. htfr is the angry man wiping his shoe on the wet grass..
I miss Kaizen
They gave brilliant service and often had "50% off everything" sales. But I guess the reason for those sales is because they were struggling so much to compete with chemical and redeye.
www.wsrecords.com also, my mates shop
Redeye over chemical for me, i can't stand those stickers they put on every record as well as redeye being an over all more friendly service.
Redeye for me aswell and failing that (stock issues normally) then i'll go to Chemical
