My friends are really into records. Its finally warn off on me. I just mentioned that im now into collecting records, and people have given me a good amount to start off with. Im old enough to remember records. My first one was the ghostbusters song. Anyways, so Im using my montgomery ward hi fi to play them. Nice vintage tube sound there. Vintage seems to be the prefered way to go to recapture that old sound. Unfortuanlty the needle is getting old. And as i type this i hear my record skipping. The record itself seems clean at least. So ive narrowed it down to the needle. I dont even know were to find one for this player. Its an old hi fi with am radio/record player that lays 78s as well. So id like to hear from you other collectors. Maybe some tips. Places I can get good records. The local store here closed down when the owners died. I had two floors of records to choose from. It was great. My collection includes KISS, Elvis, Pink Floyd, Jerry Lee Lewis, Rolling Stones, Wes Montgomery, Spyro Gyra, Weather Report, Jaco Pastorius, Bootsy Collins, LTD, Bob Seager, Marvin Gaye the list goes on. Not to bad for a start.
