There’s just something about the sound quality and experience of a vinyl record that sets it apart from other forms of audio technology. eBay has hundreds of thousands of records from which you can choose, ranging from classical tunes to classic music from your childhood to today’s biggest hits.
Get more than great sounds out of your vinyl records
You know that your favourite rock, pop and jazz albums can provide hours of great listening. But did you know you can also use them to make a visual statement? If you have a handful of records that hold special meaning for you or feature cover artwork that you find particularly appealing, consider buying a second copy to frame and hang on the wall. Only have one copy? That’s alright, too. Buy a stand on which you can display the record sleeve. You can take your visual use of records a step further by painting on the actual record itself. This will of course ruin the ability to play the music, but if you can track down an extra copy of the album, creating art on a vinyl record or writing a message can be a great gift idea. Vinyl records are a fantastic way to listen to your favourite music from the past and present. But don’t be afraid to use them for other purposes as well.
How to take care of your vinyl records
There are several easy steps you can take to try to make your records stay in better shape for longer. Instead of just relying on the paper sleeves many vinyl records come with, invest in plastic inner sleeves that are less likely to cause scratching when removing and putting your album back in its sleeve. Speaking of putting the album back, do you best to not drop it in. This can split the case at its seam and also lead to dreaded scratching. When storing vinyl records, place them standing up next to each other. Stacking them on top of each other can cause damage. When playing your records or putting them away, try not to touch the face of the record. Handle them on the edges to ensure particles from your hands don’t smudge or damage the area that contains the information that turns into music once touched by the needle. eBay has a massive inventory of records from which to choose.
