Record store: Amoeba Music

We do buy from individuals. The only requirement is that you need to show a government-issued picture ID for cash transactions. We offer both cash and credit for purchases. For records, cash is 75% of the credit offer. For everything else, it is 50%.


What genres of music do you sell and seek?

We sell all genres of music. However, we are not looking for most classical records, most pop vocals, easy listening, traditional and contemporary jazz. We're mostly interested in 60's rock & soul, 50's/early 60's jazz but also 70's reggae, any punk, rap, and rock from the last 40 years.

What is your policy on the condition of records?

Condition is crucial to the value of a record. We sometimes turn records away because they are too scratched or the covers have mold in them. We do not take donations. Whatever we don't want, you have to take back.

How should I proceed if I want to sell my records?

The best thing to do is to bring them down and give us a little time, and we can explain to you what we can do. I should note that we pass on most 78's, especially if it is big band/swing.

Who can I contact for more questions?

If you have any more questions, give us a call at 510-549-1125.
