Do you have records or CDs at home that you no longer listen to? CD Central buys collections!
We are always buying quality record collections. We mainly buy LPs (full-length albums) but will also consider some 45 and 78 rpm singles. Condition is important! Both the outer jackets and the records themselves must be in excellent condition.
We mainly look for classic rock music (1950s to present), alternative, indie and punk rock, classic R&B and soul (generally pre-1976), jazz, hip-hop, and bluegrass & traditional folk.
We are usually NOT buying classical music, easy listening and pop vocals (Andy Williams, Herb Alpert, Barbra Streisand, etc), children’s music, Christmas records, Broadway, etc.
Please note: Elvis sold millions of records and most are very common!
We offer store trade credit for CDs and movies in good condition, as long as it’s something people would still want to listen to or watch! We do not buy VHS tapes.
We can buy rock music cassettes only. We’re not buying any other genres at this time. We don’t buy 8-track tapes, sorry!
CD Central also buys vintage stereo equipment in good condition, particularly receivers, amps, turntables and speakers. Generally we’re looking for older equipment with analog rather than digital displays. We do NOT buy used modern “suitcase” style portable record players.
Feel free to call us at 859-233-3472 with any questions. However, we cannot price records and equipment over the phone without actually seeing them! Best time to bring items to sell is Monday-Friday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. We can also arrange house calls for large record collections if it’s the type of material we’re looking for.
