Sad to say most of the items you recommend for record storage will hold up to the weight of Records. However, if you have a small collection or intend too spread out your records these ideas might work
Don’t stack your records it will warp and don’t put them in drawers your still stacking your records and again it will cause warps however you could make a record wall just put your vinyl in a shelf vertically not horazantal
How do you store 5000-6000 LPs, approximately 7000 CD’’ and anywhere from 1550 to 2000 DVDs and Blue Ray disks? (Not including odd sized box sets and miscellaneous music related contraptions.
I have dedicated an entire room for storage of these artifacts but I can’t seem to find the right idea for storing them.
I have yet to see s cabinet or set of cabinets that would do the job. Any ideas?
Women talkin ‘bout music and vinyl.... I have 2500 pieces.... your post is ridiculous? Please talk ‘bout cooking, or hair cut, or maquillage, or about killing rats in the infested part of your town or how to change a truck ‘s wheel... if you are a feminist... oh, good lord!
On many albums songs were put into an order, a journey .. when i listen to a cd or complete album online i can hear where side one ends and side two begins the album theme again.. this seems to be lost on a lot of people, regardless of age, Check it out
YOU DON'T HAVE TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS FOR PEOPLE TO GET PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO CONVEY!
But I've had my records for years stored in crates yet my records are as fresh as new, you just need to take care of them and clean them once and awhile.
I think you should consider changing your intro music to something less abrasive. How about you start every video by running your finger nails down a chalkboard or maybe the sound of two alley cats having sex.
Crackle and hum? I thought this was annoying at first then heard or say this. Guess what, you're doing it wrong. This is for target shoppers..... Nothing to see here, unless you're buying Taylor Swift on vinyl.
I have a mixture of a number of different shelves, but one piece of advice I would give to some that maybe have bigger collections or see their collection really growing...if you go with the Kallax series shelves....don't buy the 4x4 or 5x5, etc. I would buy all 2x2 shelves. I purchased a 5x5, a 2x4 and 5 2x2s. What I have discovered is that having the 2x2, since all these are stackable, offers you the benefit of being able to really move your collection and room design around. At one point you might want one huge vinyl wall and you and can stake them a make it. Another time you might want more of sofa table effect behind our couch or you might want to use a 2x2 on each side as end tables. Maybe you want to "L" in a corner of a wall or stack shelves to get higher lining a staircase. So many different arrangement which means you can change for a change of pace or when you move to that new home or apartment you have flexibility. If I could do it over again I would have not bought the 5x5 or the 2x4. I would have went with like 14 or so 2x2s. Just something to think about IF you do choose the go the Kallax route with larger collections.
Worst "fun" HIPSTER video & suggestions ever, Vintage crap boxes? wood? are you serious? ok IF YOU ARE A SERIOUS COLLECTOR READ THIS: NEVER NEVER use WOOD boxes for your records, wood add acids to the paper and cause damage over time, avoid vintage crap used bad materials boxes, also prevent use shelf racks even if you use outer sleeves, why? records are exposed in shelfs, the solution? is Acid Free Cardboard boxes! keeping your records in acid free boxes are secure to avoiding exposure UV lights, mold, dust and more; add Silica Gel to each box and keep your records room in 35% to 45% relative humidity, 21 Centigrade / 70 Fahrenheit Temperature. I bet your records can lives 100+ years of that way.
Sebastian Spatafore ....dude really I’ve been collecting and listening to music all my life still have my first album and that’s over 40 years old and never did any of this stupid crap you all talk about the only true thing is yes get them out of the paper sleeves and two yes but them in outer sleeves just take care of your records and they will last a life time lol this guy and a hundred years too funny why don’t you rent them a room Christ it’s vinyl you hipsters really know how to blow everything out of the water clam down and enjoy the music and stop worrying what others have to say
i have a old record stand (the wire one) that i got from an antique shop on an old road for like 10 bucks, i sanded and repainted it so now its like new i actually have another that was also dirt cheap so to save 90 bucks be patient and go to antique shops
Back in the late 70's early 80's I had a room where I put 12" cork panels on the entire walls and ceiling! Then I took all the records out of their covers and pin tacked the covers in each corner of the cover butted up against each other! The covers went floor to ceiling and across the ceiling so the entire room when you walked in was all album covers! I even did the back of the door, made a custom 4" foam backed board that fit in the window and took the shutter doors off the closet and did it the top half of the wall in it as well! Then in the closet so they were out of the way, I put all the vinyl records in blank covers organized alphabetically and music genre wise in Peaches Records crates with custom dividers and titles/artists I made and elevated them on storage cabinets with custom fronts just like the Record Store for easy access and play on a killer quad stereo system with tall floor speakers in each corner! Right above the turntable I had a featured frame to place a cover with a lit "Now Playing" sign! It was a blast and easy to swap out the covers on the walls and over the years I even swapped out covers for album posters! I even had it so you could turn out the lights and a funky light show would fill the room so you could sit back in bean bag chairs and escape into the music! Got this idea from our trips to the Laser Light Show Concerts at Bishop Planetarium in Sarasota The room wasn't sound proof, but between the cork and the covers I could really crank it in there! It all took me awhile to do all this, but my friends and anyone who ever came in there all thought it was one of the coolest things they had ever seen! I'd say I had to agree! P.S. I had another room with ALL black light posters, love beads, lava lamps, bean bag chairs ...etc. where I could pipe the music from the "Record Store" room into it! This was a pretty popular room too! Damn I miss those rooms! Need to do them again! I still have most of the stuff!
I would assume that even with the glass dust would still find it's way in with opening, closing, shifting records as you flip, etc. I would think regardless of any option the best, 100% dust protection option, would be resealable flap sleeves. It seems those would offer 100% dust protection with any option. Even just laying on the floor against the wall LOL.
Aaron Manley - The Eagles didn't exist in the Sixties, and people have been cleaning and taking care of their vinyl in order to get the best sound out of it and prolong its life as long as the format has been around. It's not cork sniffing, it's just basic vinyl and turntable care. Failing to properly clean each record (and generally remove the dust from each side before playing) and keep the stylus clean not only degrades the sound, but shortens the life of both the stylus and the records themselves. And, no, not all vinyl is replaceable, some records and pressings are rare and/or valuable. A little bit of care goes a long way. The "disposable-everything" mindset...SMH.
the point is that, for example, the average guy in the 60's who listened to the Eagle's a lot didn't pay any mind to the subtle cackles or pops. Its nostalgic because it was a minor inconvenience to someone who just likes music. You are being quite snobby, and are way too concerned about it. It happens, records are replaceable.
You threw me off right away saying that hearing pops brings a sense of nostalgia. I have over 1,000 records and I try to avoid records that have pops. I even have some from the 50's that sound great without any.
yea I agree, but it's nice having just four or five songs per side and the way you choose the track or part by placing the needle directly on the spot to play instead of skipping through or pressing next. I love that
Assuming they are upright, aren't tightly packaged, and in low humidity (dry room) away from any kind of heat source. In a cabinet means low exposure to light which is good. High density polyethylene sleeves are the best way to avoid chemical damage (even better than what the records come with).
Look around on Amazon for " Foremost 327806 Modular Large Divided Storage System " . These come in a few color options, are easy to assemble, and fairly cheap. I've bought six of them recently for vinyl and have been impressed SO FAR with quality. They can be stacked horizontally, and come with a little bit of hardware to do so. You can get other elements of the Modular System to customize your space as well.
I actually bought frames made for LP albums in their covers and I found those at The Dollar General a couple of years ago. The albums look great as art, and they are sealed, which protects them. Just make sure you hang them securely.
The first stones Lp was 12X5 good Lp. I like Let it Bleed. Rumors was the second Fleetwood Mac album with Stevie I prefer do all the stuff with Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac but that is still a good record. Some of the records I had framed were “War” The World Is A Ghetto, Janis Joplin cheap thrills, Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa the original drum battle & a very old blues Lp called please warm my weiner Just to name a few. I rotate them every so often

Hi, my name is Ross Williams . Let me share a personal story with you. Back in 2007, I held an excellent position at a large IT company with a nice monthly salary. By 2008, the great recession hit. The company ran into financial problems and was forced to lay off over 50% of its staff. Unfortunately for me, I was included.
So there I was stranded, unemployed, with all the bills to pay and a family to support. Where I lived, such jobs werent easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family. I just wanted a way to make money, and not lose it, as I soon found to be the case with numerous internet scams.
Just like you, I often stumbled upon all types of web sites offering me some money matrix scheme, promising me all the money in the world. Yeah, right! From stuffing envelopes, Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs, to selling all types of useless products. You name it, Ive been there, done that.
Finally, I came across something that worked.
Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2015, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2016. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. Thats IF you take advantage of this secret system.
Companies worldwide are desperately searching for people just like you to type up their ads and post them online, and theyll pay you nicely in return. Its a win-win situation. They get more customers, you get paid. Its as simple as that. These companies have cash, LOTS of it and theyre eager to share it with you. All types of individuals around the world are using this system to make more money than they ever could working in a boring, dead-end job. You can work part-time or full-time, its all up to you.
