Vinyl fair at The Warehouse Antiques and Collectibles in Setchey


By Julie Graham, Business Editor


The Warehouse Antiques and Collectibles at Setchey is holding a vinyl fair this month when guest seller will be Ted Carroll, of Ace Records fame.

Ted founded Chiswick Records in 1976 and signed bands such as The Damned and Motörhead. He also managed Thin Lizzy during their Decca label years.

Stand A6 in the antiques centre run by Mike Reeve has turned into a small professional record shop with more than 500 different titles. Stock has steadily increased during his first year and now includes CDs and cassettes too.

Mike aims not to have two copies of the same title in each format to make browsing more interesting.

A new range of vinyl LPs have been introduced that has been professionally machine cleaned to enhance the sound quality by extracting the dust and grime that can penetrate the grooves.

The process involves combining a cleaning solvent with distilled water, brushing this liquid into the total playing surface of one-side of the vinyl with a pure-bristle brush that has been soaked in the cleaning solvent.

The boom of the cleaning machine, with has a thin slit surrounded by velvet pads is swung into action, literally sucking up the liquid, very much like a vacuum cleaner until the surface is dry.

The vinyl fair takes place on Saturday, August 24.
