Most original mono records will from now on also be play graded with a mono cartridge . If you use a Stereo cartridge playing older mono's , more prominent background noise must usually be expected. 

Bid/Purchase with confidence and check out my feedback. I have sold thousands of records on and off Ebay during the last 3 years  , I am also a collector myself so I have high standards.  Most records are professionally cleaned on my VPI 17F  record cleaning machine and  all items are visually graded in strong light and played on High-End  audio equipment  from Audio Note . I try to offer the best possible service for my customers and if there is any problem with a product , contact me, and we will work it out. See my ``About Me'' page for more information.
