About a year ago I got really tired of paying between $20 and $40 dollars for new release vinyl records. I also got pretty tired of the fact that every website online that sells new vinyl either lacks innovation, or just flat out sucks. So I pulled some friends together and we built Vinyl Loop.
The idea is simple. We pick just a few records every month that you are going to love. Then, we work directly with the label or artist to get the cost super low on a limited number (we ain't takin' home much bank on these deals yet either). We also work hard to get you additional stuff with the record, like posters, digital downloads, stickers, autographs and more.
At the end of the day, we're music lovers building something new for other music lovers. You're as much a founder of Vinyl Loop as we are, so we hope you'll enjoy (and take pride) in helping us build a new music retail model, and please, oh pretty pretty please, share Vinyl Loop on Facebook, Twitter, and wherever else you share stuff.
Vinyl Loop is a members-only deals site for new release vinyl records. Vinyl is awesome. If you're not a vinyl owner now, get started. You'll be glad you did. It's an amazing musical experience that will ground you in your fast-paced digital life.
Joining Vinyl Loop and getting access to our deals is free. To actually purchase a deal, it costs $15 dollars which includes the record, free shipping, then whatever add-ons we can secure for you from the label or artists (posters, stickers, autographs, CDs, etc).
Yes! We use Media Mail with the US Postal Service. This is the lowest cost shipping available, and allows us to pass more savings on to you. We will most likely offer a variety shipping options very soon though, because media mail is slower than you may be accustomed to and does not include tracking of any kind.
We get our records direct from labels or direct from distributors. Then, we decrease the amount of money that we make on each unit so that we can pass more savings on to you. We're really trying to shake things up in the music market. It's ridiculous that records cost a label $5 or $6 bucks per unit, then by the time they're available to you they cost 4 or 5 times that much. Vinyl Loop is working to change this big time.
