Before playing, records are cleaned on a VPI 16.5 using L’Art du Son cleaning fluid. Records are stored vertically in a Music Direct LP case in a pet-free, smoke-free, child-free environment. LPs have been kept and are shipped in archival anti-static sleeves with record jackets in archival quality outer sleeves. Purchased factory sealed and always handled very carefully, the vinyl is essentially in the condition when first opened.
