PACKING DETAILS:


We understand the importance of proper packaging - and use only the highest quality, extra thick mailers. Records are placed in new inner sleeves and removed from the jacket to prevent seam-splitting, with cardboard reinforcements to prevent all but the worst postal malfeasance.


RETURN POLICY:


Our goal is superior service and quick, clear communication. If you have any questions or issues, they’ll be dealt with promptly.

Domestic/US Shipping:

- $5 for LPs with media mail postage, with additional LPs at $1 apiece.

(((GRADING SCALE))): *PLEASE NOTE: I'm grading these African records to the same strict standards I'd grade any record, not relative to the condition you normally find African records in.*


NEAR MINT (NM)


We never assign Mint or Mint(-) grades, and the Near Mint designation is reserved for records that are visually flawless - as in, not one single mark. All records are graded visually unless otherwise noted, but any record with the Near Mint designation has also been play tested.



VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+)


Records in VG+ condition are in superb condition, but may have a faint mark or imperfection (that does not appear to affect play) holding it back from Near Mint status. A record can still attain this condition with a slight (but audibly imperceptible) warp, but this will always be noted in the description. VG+ records should play with no surface noise, clicks, pops, skips or hiss, as well as retain their luster.


VERY GOOD (VG)


Many of the imperfections found on a VG+ Record are more obvious on a VG record. VG records have more obvious flaws than their counterparts in better shape. They lack most of the original gloss found on factory-fresh records. Groove wear is evident on sight, as are light scratches deep enough to feel with a fingernail.


VG records may have some surface noise, especially during the soft passages at a songs intro and ending but should never skip, pop loudly or overpower the music. A record receiving this grade should be a strong play copy, and something we’d personally be willing to play out.


GOOD


Be forewarned, records in G condition will have significant and obvious flaws, and are not recommended for collectors who abhor surface noise, though they should still play through without skipping. We typically avoid selling records in this condition unless they are extremely rare and have extra-musical value.
