IT’S ALL ABOUT MUSIC BY REAL PEOPLE WITH REAL INSTRUMENTS.
MUSIC WITH THE DIRT LEFT ON, MUSIC WITH SOUL.
LIFE’s TOO SHORT!!
Vinyl Grove [platenzaak] in het Centrum van Den Haag, gespecialiseerd in nieuw vinyl en re-issues.
We hebben ook een bescheiden selectie tweedehands LP’s, allen gewassen op een VPI machine en op gehoor gegradeerd.
Vinyl Grove voert alle genre’s, mits gespeeld door echte mensen op echte instrumenten.
Wij hebben ook een bestel service voor ‘hard to find’ titles: Is het legaal uitgebracht; wij vinden het!
Het bestellen van andere geluidsdragers (cd/dvd) is, uiteraard, mogelijk.Kijk ook even onder “accessoires” voor andere, LP gerelateerde, produkten.
Vinyl Grove is a record store specialized in new vinyl and re-issues. We do have a modest selection of used vinyl which are cleaned on a vpi machine & graded by ear.
Vinyl Grove is located in The Hague (Den Haag) City Center, The Netherlands.
We stock all genres on LP as long as played with real instruments by real people.
We are specialised in ‘hard to find’ titles and offer a ‘special order’ service: if its released, we’ll get it.
Some of our services:
- Audiophile labels (MOFI in stock)
- CD/DVD: fast delivery on cd orders.
Next to that Vinyl Grove is the right place for
- Refurbished record players, with that special VG touch
- Phono pre-amplifiers, Cartridges (Ortofon, Audio Technica, Grado, Tonar, Nagaoka, Goldring), Record Cleaners (Mofi Brushes, budget brushes, Disko AntiStat, Okki Nokki), ao.
We also have a housebrand of recordcleaning fluid; fully tested by geeks and approved. Only €12,50 a liter (bring your own bottle!)
Most of our LP’s have a broken seal; these LP’s have NOT been played. We break the, tight, seal to take the tension off and therefor prevent the corners getting bent and to avoid ringwear. LP’s with a ‘looser’ seal and thick innersleeves (MOFI, Music On Vinyl, audiophile labels) stay sealed. Of course we can order you a sealed LP. If we played a LP in the store (our stylus’ , allignment are checked weekly) you will be notified and we will play it for you to check the quality.
We use modified Thorens’ decks and Ortofon MM Red/Blue carts. We also have a Marantz 6300/Shure md91 stand-by for those who prefer direct drives.
Sometimes clients expect to get a X% discount when purchasing >3 new LP’s. Our mark-up is one of the lowest for brick and mortar shops. The philosophy is: WHY should we give discount to someone who can afford 5 LP’s a week, but NOT to the kid who safes 2 months to buy this 1 LP.
So in fact every LP at the Grove is already discounted. Please look before you weap.
Of course we do something special for firsttimers who just purchased a bunch of LP’s, and our loyal clients have teh first choice to our sales bins.
