What Cheer sells All Sorts of Records, including
old 78rpm Records! Most record shops ignore this very
fragile and somewhat obscure format, but we love ’em.
78s are the Very 1st Records ever Made.
Other ways of reproducing sound predate the record
but that’s where our interest and inventory begins. the first
records date back to the 1880s and played at 78rpm
and they were produced through the 1950s until 33.3 rpm
LP and 45rpm Records edged them out.
Since LPs and 45s tend to sell best for us at
What Cheer, 78s tend to take us longer to price and
add to our inventory, but over time we will have
a very large inventory available, as we
have been buying them for years.
What Cheer sells 78s online in a Discogs Store
which you can see by clicking here and Most of them
are also in our Shop on Thayer Street in Providence
where we also have Bargain 78s for .50 cents each!
and while we at What Cheer are not the biggest fans
of eBay, we do often first list rarer 78s there first, so you may
may want to occasionally check our listings there for
our freshest offerings. click here for ’em.
