The Record Shop
RECORD SHOP NEWS:
December 21st 2012.
Our 30 year
anniversary sale will run through Christmas....30 years-Damn! ...some of you
weren't even born when I opened the shop...some of you were brought into the
shop as babes in arms by your parents...I saw many of you grow up...get
married and have children of your own...some years were great, some just
so/so and some were downright horrendous, but that's life...I've been lucky
enough to live my life on my own terms and that just may be the
secret...find something you care passionately about and you'll never really
"work" a day in your life. Thanks to all of you who have enriched my life.
PLEASE! I NEED YOUR HELP!!!
I want to put together
a complete listing of all the bands who have played here over the years...I
have video for a lot of them...some dated-some not...if you saw a band here
and remember the date or if your band played here and you have the date...or
pictures...please get in touch...I'd like to document it all before it's too
late, my memory hasn't been the best lately
Keith Monks record
cleaning machine services available...$2.00 a record. Keith Monks makes the
absolute best professional record cleaning machine on the market. You'd be
amazed to hear the difference in some of the older vinyl after cleaning
been selling music for close to thirty nine years, 30 of them
right here in the shop. We have loads of vinyl and inexpensive cds.
While the sixties are my specialty, we have quite a lot of punk, metal, new
wave, jazz, fifties, folk and R n' B. There's a big bin of $1 records in
the back room...and a large bin of FREE records as well...while we're on the
subject of prices: Throw away your price guides
because I don't use 'em. I think they're highly over rated and way
over priced. I don't want to have a museum here and everything is priced to
sell. Some of my customers actually have made a comfortable living selling stuff
on ebay that they bought here...that's all part of the circle and more power
to them...they come back and buy more...everybody's happy...I've got listening stations set up for vinyl and cds so you're
not buying a "pig in a poke". You buy these to listen to...not to look
at; so I guarantee each and every item I put out. Sorry no "flavor of
the week" stuff here; we're not a maul store and don't want to be..
is the largest indie store in the state and it does take quite a bit of
time to see everything there is to see. I really should re-locate
to New York City or Boston, the stock is that good! But, here I am in
Waterbury the back ass end of the universe.... So it goes...
I do buy large collections of vinyl...give me a call or drop me a line...
The Brass City Tool Shop
sell records for a living but I have a passion for woodworking and old
tools. I really enjoy sharing both with anyone who will listen, and
sometimes even people who will not listen. I own the only record store
I know of with a functioning, though small, woodworking bench. I offer
some fine wood working tools, most over 75 years old, and some well
over 100 years old. They all still do what they were intended to do.
Most were made right here in Connecticut within a stones throw of
where I sit. The tools that I sell are tools that I would be proud to
have in my own shop, or that I do have in my collection.
clean for use .
Blades will be sharp and ready to use, but it's up to you to put the
final touches on the bevel. Soles will be flat for use but not polished
. Please send your requests for tools and parts. I've got so many I
couldn't possibly list them all. I guarantee all the tools I sell
100%...money back guarantee, just like the old days. Payment by cash,
check, money order, charge card or paypal.
buy tools that I would be proud to own. I look for good "bones" ie:
solid castings, good wood, and functioning mechanicals.
also buy old woodworking tools, particularly pattern makers and
jointer's tool chests. If you have had a family member who worked in
this trade please contact me. I personally collect scraper planes and
