Tulsa Old Vinyl Records
Tulsa Old Vinyl Records
Vinyl records were the primary medium for recorded sound from the late 1800s until they were gradually superseded by compact discs (CDs) in the ’80s and ’90s. The reasons most people prefer old vinyl records versus all other formats are enhanced audio quality, tactile feel of album art, the rarity of certain pressings, and bonus content.

Why are old vinyl records so important? The foundation of the music business for over 100 years, old vinyl records offer limited editions that simply cannot be replicated on newer formats like CDs or digital downloads. The album cover size is limited by the 12 inch circumference of the record, so album art is very important. Vinyl records can contain up to 20 minutes of music per side, which allows for extended play and bonus tracks that aren’t available on CDs or downloads.
The biggest difference between old vinyl records and modern formats like CD, MP3 digital downloads, etc., is the audio quality. A vinyl record played on a high end turntable with a separate, powered phono pre-amplifier and good quality moving coil or moving magnet cartridge will sound incredible, even by today’s standards. This is due to how information is stored on the record (vinyl).
A vinyl record contains continuous variable grooves that are read by a stylus that vibrates as the record rotates. These vibrations are converted into electrical signals, which are then amplified and sent to speakers where we hear them as sound.
