Your Gear Setup

  • Turntable
    Tricked out* Crosley
    *just a regular Crosley with extra stickers
  • Speakers
    a tricked out guitar amp (aka so many friggin stickers)

    What's an amplifier?
  • Phono Preamps
    Is that the cable that goes from the Crosley to the amp? I think it's black. I put stickers on it.
  • Turntable Cartridge
    I once found a milk cartridge and I put all 8 of my records in it.
  • Turntable Speed Controller / Speed Box
    Sometimes I spin my records faster to see how fast I can make them go.
  • Interconnects/Wires
    Wire is so overrated. I prefer Mission of Burma.

    AMAZON U.S. Vinyl Deals & More Thread

    Unfortunately seems to be the case for everyone - see Reddit...

    Odd tracking issue with new cart

    Check the belt - make sure it's on smoothly? Could be turning inconsistently, causing the jumps. Probably not it, but worth checking...

    The Official 'Vinyl Me, Please' thread.

    Nope. They value everything at $1 each so no duties. Shocked the hell outta me because I thought you’re not allowed to do that....not complaining. Sometimes if they have a standard press of something that is a couple bucks more than a US store I’ll go for it since I know there’s no shipping fees or duties.

    I feel the same way. If I was charged the US rate to ship to Canada, I'd be a regular subscriber. But now I just wait for whatever I want to be in the store and buy it with no shipping cost. And if it means I wait a few months to get something, I'm game.

    PO NOW: Pinegrove - Skylight

    That’s because you don’t have to pay VAT. Anything you order from a European amazon to North America will show up cheaper in the cart once you ship to a non-EU location.

    I got the 10GBP credit. Reordered and it worked out to basically the same cost as it was before to Canada.

    I fucking love that record. Shearwater reinterpreted 'You Don't Pull No Punches, But You Don't Push The River' into the song Home Life. Bulbs is such a jam. Astral Weeks is still GOAT, but Veedon is such a classic that rarely gets any exposure.
  8. I'm so excited for this. I've loved Josh Ritter since Hello Starling came out, and was sort of disappointed by his last 2-3 albums. Meanwhile. Isbell has become my favourite songwriter these days. Them working together is amazing...so excited to hear this.

    AMAZON U.S. Vinyl Deals & More Thread

    Amazon.ca deal I posted this morning on Reddit, and it seems most folks from the US and elsewhere are able to order. Grateful Dead - Spring 1990 - So Glad You Made It 4LP Box $40.59 CDN [works out to under $40US shipped] Seems to be a possible pricing error - goes for about $100 elsewhere and on Amazon.com

    PO NOW: Pup - Morbid Stuff (Out April 5th)

    Has anyone found a Canadian preorder yet? I'm not interested in spending $40-50 USD on a variant if I can get it closer to $20 Canadian. Wonder if they're still on Royal Mountain Records?

    What books are you reading?

    Just finished Jeff Tweedy's memoir. One of the best music-related memoirs I've ever read (up there with Elvis Costello's recent one). Particularly good for being quick and concise, not going through every moment in his career in order, and instead focusing on the important parts. The audiobook is read by him, with cameos from his wife and oldest son.
