Right now, I have nothing to keep my Mystifier box safe from dust and other shit that floats in the air. I've had mine since November and I've just been keeping it in the mailer it was sent in if I go a while without listening to it (which isn't very often).

What box size box set sleeves would be good for this and where would be a good place to go to? I usually buy my protective sleeves from bagsunlimited. How are their box sleeves?

make a note in your next order that you want a poly bag for your boxset and I'll send you one for free.

use just some sort of simple plastic bag or bubble wrap or something.
good idea to keep it in the cardboard, just pad it well so those corrugated lines don't show up over time.

I don't protect it all that much. It stands lined up along with rest of my vinyls.

Right... Just play those fuckers. Play em till they won't play anymore.
Enjoy your vinyl. Of course keeping them in a dust free purified air, government standard record shelter can be a hobby in itself. So each to his/her own. BY the way check your asunder clarion call vinyl, it has a 1-64" scratch on the inside towards the center that runs perpendicular to the edge of the last track. Your blasphemy lp also has a 1-32" corner ding on the lower left side of the gatefold...asshole

In reality, I do believe one should treat what they spend their hard earned money on with respect and care. But not to the point where they actually don't listen to their music.

I know back in the hayday, people would buy records, record it on cassette and just listen to the tapes and keep their records like new. I guess people still do that, more so with MP3's.

I totally agree. I actually handle and protect mine very carefully.
But I play them over and over and over. I'm just not into collecting or selling or finding that rere gem, which can be a cool hobby as well.
If you are into collecting and super anal about it, cool......
I know that guy was kidding in his comments, so was I

Itís a rule in my house:

If Im going to play my vinyl stuff:

1 Wash my hands
2 Do not touch play area, always in the edge
3 use a piece of towel to clean it before & after play
4 Make a tape transfer is the best option to keep safe and in good conditions the vinyl

For dust protection I keep them in plastic boxes with lid, so there they are very well protected Very Happy

Wasn't the box made to protect the records? Why do you need to protect the box? What are you going to use to protect the sleeve that you put it in? How many layers of protection do you need?

Seriously, if it gets dusty, just wipe the dust off. And in response to the previous post, no, it isn't cool if you're super anal and have OCD over this sort of thing. It's fucking gay. Metalheads don't bitch over sleeves, fingerprints, dust, smoke, small bent corners, and minimal scratches when it comes to vinyl, only collectors and people who are concerned about keeping their collection in mint condition so they can flog it on eBay one day.

That's the truth and if you say this isn't why you're so worried about the condition your stuff is in you're a fucking liar. Yeah, I take care of my music and a certain amount of concern about this sort of thing is understandable. People on this forum go way fucking overboard, though.

Wow, if I had to go through a retarded ritual like this every time I put on a record, I probably would never listen to them. And why does everyone keep mentioning dust? It cleans off you know. It's not like it will eat a hole through your gatefold and into the record itself.
