Friends of Sound Records opened in 2004 and has been buying, selling, and trading records ever since. Come and see us in our brick and mortar store if ever in Austin, TX. We're open 7 days a week and everything that's for sale in our online store is also for sale here in Austin. In addition to all our collectibles listed online, we have thousands of records for you to browse, handle, and preview here on site.
Friends of Sound Records makes great effort to rotate stock so that our store is always worth your time. We process hundreds of records every week and up to a few thousand records every month: in 2013 we sold records found in 15 states and entire collections found in 5 states! Our records are priced to sell in an effort to keep things moving so that you'll see new, high-quality titles with every visit.
Want to sell your records?
Of course you're welcome to bring your records to our Austin store too, our buying hours are 11-7pm on weekdays but we're happy to accommodate on weekends if needed. We offer cash or an increased store-credit to use at your discretion, that way you can surely get something special in exchange for records you're no longer listening to. We buy and sell all genres of music so most everything's fair game here. Typically a record's value is contingent upon a few factors which include supply, demand, pressing details, and its condition.
We typically pay more for records than anyone else!
We've been in business for 8 years now, this is our passion so you can rest assured that we know records well and follow through with due diligence when buying records brought to our Austin store.
If you have any questions please do get in touch by phone or email, we're happy to help and look forward to seeing you in-person next time you're in town!
