Let's be honest, as a vinyl collector I can assure you won't find any bargains or rare records. They have a good selection of used vinyl, specially in jazz, but that's about it. The vast majority of the vinyls for sale is new releases which is a no no for a collector. What really makes this place a great one... More

If you are looking for a great record store, where you can find a great mix between classic, obscure and modern, visit Concerto. They have a lot of vinyl as well, so you get that classic feel there too. The staff knows a lot about music and there are a lot of in-store activities.

There's also a DVD section that has a great selection. It was one of my favourite places during the course of my visit to Amsterdam and I... More

My favourite place to spend an hour browsing. I hate shopping, usually working out what I want before I go, and getting in and out as quick as possible. Not so here. They have a fantastic assortment of all genres on vinyl (although their metal and punk sections could be larger) with prices that are standard wherever you go. Also... More

It's been too long that I didn't come to this shop till a few days ago. The best music shop in the country. It's now bigger than ever. Though you not planning to buy thing here, finally you always find something to bring it home. The biggest vinyl collection and there is also second hand.

This place is not in the centre of Amsterdam, it is on the outskirts but easy enough to find. This place is a little gem of a music shop (well it's anything but small) it has more rooms than most houses and sells records, CD's, DVD's and Blu-Ray, oh and it does coffee, cakes and delicious toasted sandwiches at a...
