You sign up for one of our record subscription boxes tell us what type of music you like.
Each month, depending on your membership level, you can pick a record from our collection. (our curators choose the other records for you based on the type of music you told us you like)
Every month the records arrive at your door, you play them and add more music to your home.
It's a monthly subscription where you choose one or all the records we send to you. Once you sign up for a subscription program you will be sent classic vintage vinyl each month direct to your door. What's cool about this is that you can choose one of the records we send to you or have our curators do it based on the type of music you tell us you like. Your credit card will be charged each month and you can cancel at anytime (but we hope you don't)
We try to make sure we don't send a record we wouldn't want to play ourselves. Sometimes we do send something that may look worn on the outside or have a few crackles (remember this is vintage vinyl from the 50's through the 90's). In the end if you are not happy let us know (but just to give you an idea of our standard we look for vinyl that falls into the Goldmine VG category. Learn more about Goldmine's standard here.
Ok, we get it sometimes things don't work out. You cancel your membership by logging into your account or email us if that is faster Dave@UpCycleAudioSD.com.
Yes we do and due to the variation in shipping cost we do not offer Free Shipping outside the continental United States. International or shipping costs for destinations outside the continental United Status will be determined by USPS rates and billed as Shipping and Handling cost in addition to the records.
When you signed up you told us about the type of music you like and that is what our curator's use to determine what records to send to you. If you want to change those preferences just email and let us know and we will change them in our system for you.
Keep in mind this is vintage vinyl so there may be surface noise and of course everyone's stereo equipment can vary. But we do test all the records we ship (except for records that have never been opened) We test the records on one of our two turntables; a fully automatic ATLP60 and a US Made belt drive U-Turn, both use the very popular Audio Technica ATN91 Stylus.
It's pretty easy. Every month we load the website up with the current month's selections.
We send you an email to let you know that the records are up on the website, the link to view them and when the last day is for you to make a selection.
You visit the site, login in to your account, select one of the records you want, add it to your cart and "check out".
The system sends us your selection, we add more records depending on your membership level and we send your shipment out for delivery.JOIN NOW
The record's cost to you is $0 (zero) as you have already paid for it as part of your monthly subscription.
We are using Cratejoy to power our website now and with it comes some new features (one of them is the Choose your Record). Cratejoy also has built in transaction security - so keep in mind when you add your record to the cart Cratejoy's transaction security will verify your credit card info (you may have to enter it). It WILL NOT charge your card, it only verifies it for security purposes.
If you don't make a selection by the cutoff date our curators will pick records for you based on the music you have told us you like and from our total collection. This is also a great way to make sure you get a variety of records, discover new artists or re-discover those you already know but maybe forgot about that certain album.
Sometimes you just want to be surprised or don't want to select a record. No problem, just wait for the cutoff date to pass and don't make a selection, our curators will select for you based on the music you have told us you like
It depends on your membership level but basically it works like this, for those on a "Choose One Record" plan
The one record level is curated, our staff will select a record for you based on the music you have told us you like.
At the 2 record level - we will send you 2 records, one you select and one selected by our staff
At the 3 record level - we will send you 3 records, one you select and two selected by our staff
If the record is out of stock it means another member beat you to it (as often we have only one copy of an album at any given time). If that happens make another selection from those available or make no selection by the cutoff date and our staff will send records based on the music types you like.
Every month we will send you a subscription box of our latest record finds.
We don't just send you records, we send you records we personally would enjoy. Because we test listen the records there are times that we really don't want to part with a record...but we figure if we found it once we just may find it again (and this time add it to our in-house collection). How do we get the records? These are NOT records from our personal collection or our record store that we are just trying to get rid of...nope..these are records that we personally selected from various record stores, at vintage markets sometimes even from those collectors who work so hard to unload their collections on Ebay and other places. Vintage Vinyl from the 50s-90's, check out the printed dates on the covers and you will relive that experience of playing pre-loved vinyl and know you own a piece of musical history.
Yes! It's a perfect gift for you to share your a love of music and vinyl. Streaming is convenient, CDs (if you still have them around) are easy to "pop and play", but nothing beats vinyl (well maybe live music does). Share the experience that we all love - Playing our records, skimming through our collection, looking at the covers and deciding what record to play. Then comes that moment when you remove the record from the sleeve, spin it end over end in your hand to decide on Side A or Side B. You cue it up, hear the first crackle I know that for the next 20 minutes of so..it's just chill time. Share that experience with a friend or loved one!GIVE A GIFT
