There are quite a few factors to consider when determining the value of your vinyl record collection such as:The Release DateThe Condition of the Vinyl RecordLimited Release/DiscontinuedSealed or notRare or Bizarre ArtworkPromotional Vinyl RecordsIf you are a beginner, the easiest way to grade the value of your vinyl records is to pick up a copy of the Vinyl Records Price Guide, or to find a local dealer to appraise the record in person.
How a Vinyl Record is made
It's all vinyl with a label attached made of paper usually glued to the center.
The original vinyl record was made of vinyl. The original phonographic recording was made by Thomas A. Edison on a wax cylinder.
Elvis records are alot of of money i would pay alot just to get on record
Yes, you can play picture discs on a record player! Although some collectors just collect them for collectibility sake and never play them. It is also known that picture discs have relatively poor sound quality as there is less vinyl applied to the disc due to the picture image being on it. You can play them on a record player and it will not cause any damage to the picture disc, provided you have a good working record player.
Is this a vinyl record (has a little flex and give to it) or an acetate (no flex and thicker than a modern record)? The acetate records are very fragile so please don't bend it hard as it will break. Condition is key on any type of record whether vinyl or acetate. If it has lots of scratches and does not have the original sleeve then it has basically no value on the secondary market. If it is in good condition with original sleeve and is a popular title it could be worth $2.00 - $30.00.
Yes. Older records especially can be quite brittle. Record vinyl became more flexible in the 70s, but any vinyl record will break if stressed.
Basically sound vibrations were carried along and tranferred to the soft vinyl through means of a needle.
You you can still buy Sealed New Vinyl Records from a specialist Vinyl Record retailer like 1NOTE in the UK (see link below).
vinyl records are still made to this day.
Depends on the record. If it's the original Cold Spring Harbor vinyl or the Souvenir vinyl record, then you're looking at $30-$100. Most others are worth around $5.
The GEMM site has an extensive vinyl marketplace and excellent description of what the condition of a record is (which affects value).
PVC stands for poly VINYL chloride.
One on each side of the record.
The only thing different about coloured vinyl and regular vinyl is that the red vinyl usually makes it collectible and therefore valuable.
The value of your record depends on a myriad of things. Is it in good condition or just like it came out of the sleeve if there is a sleeve? Is it a picture sleeve, plain or colored paper? Is it one pressed in England, America or some other location? There are scratched in numbers on the disk that give some infomation. You could do some diligent searches here on the internet or use it to find dealers or collectors for your record. Good luck!
A vinyl record player operates on a turntable. A record is put on the turntable and then set into a rotation by a tonearm. A stylus needle, which is at the end of the tonearm reads the vibrating sounds and plays the record.
They are made of vinyl.
There is no way to discern if the album itself is on blue or black vinyl without opening it up. However, all records (including this one) will be worth allot IF it remains "unplayed" (i.e. in pristine condition and unplayed). If you look closely at any 45 or 33 there is a "black band" that is NOT a "music track" and is located closest to the label of the record. There you will find a series of numbers and letters. This series of numbers, along with the actual condition record and its jacket, will determine the value of the record. Needless to say, if your album is on blue vinyl and was produced in 1977 you have a valuable record.
Personally, I would not buy a vinyl record unless I wanted to use it as a decoration. Vinyl records are dated and most people currently download music and have an iPod or MP3 player.
well obviously the recording on the record, the production number of the record, the date of the record, and the demand. you might just want to take it to an appraiser or even a pawn shop to just see if its worth anything
Yes. A record deck, or turntable, is used for playing vinyl records on.
The Vinyl was produced in the United Kingdom, but was shipped to another country.
