Record store: Jockamo Records

The store primarily focuses on LPs and has a selective interest in other formats. For 78 rpm records, our interest is limited to genres like blues, rock 'n' roll, and Hawaiian. We generally do not purchase 78s in classical, popular vocal, or big band categories. For 45 rpm records, our interest depends on the artist, title, and condition of the record.


How do you determine the value of the records you purchase?

The value of records is determined by several factors including market value, rarity, and condition. However, our primary consideration is whether we believe we can sell the record. Supply and demand greatly influence a record's value; a record in great condition might still be valued low if there's no demand for it. Additionally, our valuation is informed by years of experience in the industry.

Do you offer cash or store credit for records?

We offer cash for records. The choice to spend the cash in our store or elsewhere is entirely up to you.

Are there any categories of records that you do not buy?

Yes, while we have a broad interest in many music genres, there are specific categories we avoid. For 78 rpm records, we do not purchase classical, popular vocal, or big band music due to limited demand.

What factors might decrease the amount you're willing to pay for a record?

If we already have one or two copies of a record, we might offer less for it, regardless of its condition or rarity. This is due to reduced necessity for duplicates in our inventory.
