    Hey all,

    Just curious who folks like to buy vinyl from online in Canada. No shipping costs, quick turnaround, great Customer Service, etc.

    Northern Volume
    Funky Moose
    SRC Canada

    Any others people would recommend?

    Honestly, I usually just use amazon. Which I recognize as not-ideal but its usually the cheapest and I'm not quite flush enough to shop ethically. THAT SAID...I haven't even heard of the ones posted so...thanks!

    My biggest complaint with amazon is it's sometimes unclear what version/pressing of an album it is.

    Completely true. I usually don't really care - but just now I was looking to see how much amazon was selling that Wavves album for and it was significantly cheaper but I can't tell if its because its a plainer copy/coloured vinyl/whatever whatever.

    Online, I use Amazon Prime mostly, a bit of Discogs/Musicstack. I have used 2fiftyrecords in BC prior. I was going to try that Funky Moose but almost every item I clicked onto ended up being "out of stock", so I only try it if I am having a hard time finding something.

    And yes, finding the actual pressing for an LP on Amazon is terrible.

    Checking out their site right now. They don't seem to have a ton of stuff...

    They don't, but what they have is good, and many prices fair.

    Use code "welcome" to save a few more bucks.

    I've used shop.umusic.ca, it's pretty pricey but keep an eye out for sales - grabbed a bunch on Black Friday last year!
