How do we grade our records?

All records listed on The Record Store have been personally graded by the store’s owner, Patrick.

Obviously, we cannot listen to every track of every record, but we give most of them a spin to at least check out the first tracks or any area of the surface that needs attention. Others are inspected and graded visually. Grading is based on the Goldmine Standard ( EX grade used in addition to Goldmine).
