About the Vicious Squirrel
The Vicious Squirrel is for lovers and collectors of vinyl. We do not attempt to sell everything, we do endeavour to sell the interesting, both new and high quality used records for those still in love with the media, because of the depth and reality of the sound, the more tactile aspect of collecting, and the joy to be had from finding that long looked for record, either as a reissue or a hard to find 'collectable' that you happen across by chance.
Our site is new, recently launched, and will continue to evolve with additional stock, descriptions and information, as well as with a range of accessories based on enhancing vinyl reproduction. So forgive us the initial quirks, we are vinyl mongers not webmeisters. The site currently only scratches the surface of the stock we have, with the initial emphasis on 'rare & collectables', this will continue to expand to reflect the thousands of albums we have in stock.
We know about vinyl. The Vicious Squirrel is part of Deco Audio (www.decoaudio.com), a discerning hi-fi outlet specialising in fine vinyl reproduction, stockists, for example, of Nottingham Analogue, Verdier, Rega, Pro-Ject and Michell Engineering, supported by products such as Audion, Audio Note and Croft Acoustics amplification and speakers from Living Voice, Heretic Audio, ProAc and Audio Note.
Therefore we are not another web-based record merchant, although you can buy from us that way if that is your wish. We are a business that thrives on conversation, about music, about equipment, about high quality sound, and generally developing a relationship with our customers based on a shared love of music. And also we are a real shop, you can come and visit us and browse, look through our stock of hundreds of new and quality used records and a have a tea or coffee (although we are more reluctant to guarantee the quality of the beverages than the vinyl). See below for where we are and how to find us.
So why the Vicious Squirrel? In our view, you cannot extol the virtues of excellent sound reproduction if you are not reproducing excellent sound, which brings us full circle to what we are about, endeavouring to supply the interesting to the music lover and serious collector of vinyl. And 'the Vicious Squirrel', a curious name but chances are you won't forget it and will associate it with a shared love of what's good about collecting vinyl.
We buy our stock of new records from specialist suppliers, and our quality used vinyl and collectables from individuals who have collections and individual items for sale. If you have items you think we may be interested in do contact us so we can discuss and arrange to give you a valuation, we will quote competitive prices for good quality records. We obviously have to make a profit but we don't believe in 'fleecing' fellow enthusiasts!
