Super cool place. High quality selection of records. This is one of the most fun record stores in Des Moines
Would not go here to collect my top five. This has got to be the most depressing record collection I’ve even seen. Add something good, anything. I’ve seen grandmothers’ garage sales with a better selection. Do they just take anything when they buy? It’s trash. They do have 3 new records though. 3.
The best used record store in town without any of the pretentiousness of new record shops. Drop in, listen to some good music, take home some fun records, repeat!
I have an old portable analog synthesizer from the 80's called a Suzuki OmniChord. One day, my kids ran through the power cord and then the spot it plugs into for power would only work if you pressed on it just right and had the cord pinched just so.I had brought it to guitar center to get it looked at but they weren't able to help me. However, one of the guys there recommended I go to Rogue Planet Music because they have a guy who works on old amplifiers and electric instruments and such. John fixed it for me on the spot in just a few short minutes.While I was waiting, I wandered around their store and I was amazed at the collection and variety of vinyl albums in stock. The other side of the store has vintage clothing and with only about three items to choose from my daughter found a cute little flower shirt that I ended up getting for her.Thanks John, I'll make an appointment sometime to see if you can get the battery power to work and make it truly portable again.
Pleasantly surprised by this local record shop. Casual atmosphere. They usually keep a small yet interesting mix of used vinyl out in the store. Used new arrivals are teased on social media. Adding it to my list of spots in town to follow and pop in now and again.
