Vinyl is one of those things in life that is hard not to love. Personally, I find everything about vinyl cool. The look, the feel, the smell. As a DJ living in a now digital age, but having learnt on turntables and vinyl, I have developed a respect for the medium that will never leave me.
My girlfriend and I have recently moved home and I’m still in the process of arranging my home studio exactly how I want it. So when I came home from work and Katrina presented me with a Vinyl Clock, I was over the moon! What a perfect compliment to my beloved studio!
The box it came in was nicely designed and contained the clock securely in a polystyrene case, making it extremely difficult for any accidents to occur during transit!
Upon opening the case, I was presented with a Beatles 7″ single featuring ‘She Loves You/I’ll Get You’ – very cool! On this occasion, the vinyl was selected at random but on the Vinyl Clocks website there is a huge range to choose from of both 12″ and 7″ vinyls, picture vinyls and even cover artwork.
The clock mechanism itself is very securely attached and contains a hook on the back to easily mount onto any wall. The hands of the clock are gold which looks great in contrast to the black vinyl. Not much more to report there – it does its job and that’s to tell the time!
The website is smart, nicely laid out, easy to navigate and conveniently it uses PayPal as payment method. Considering the time it takes to source vinyls in good enough condition to use for display and to then mount the clock mechanism securely without damaging the vinyl, the pricing is very reasonable indeed starting from £13.95!
So, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, why not grab one now for the music lover in your life? Or even just for yourself! I am delighted with mine and know that you will be too.
