BEAT BEHIND THE DYKES is a Dutch mailorder company established in the late 80īs. I specialize in obscure worldwide 60's (beat, garage, mod, psych, soul etc.) and 70's/80's (punk, mod & powerpop) vinyl. BEAT BEHIND THE DYKES is run by a collector for collectors, so record trading is always encouraged! If you have anything cool to offer (only similiar to what you see here!) then please get in touch! Sending wantlists helps! Lots of records go directly into collections without ever appearing on the website!
GRADING: All records are graded as accurate as possible. If not satisfied with it, a full refund is possible. Grading = record/sleeve. I use the standard grading system, so M (mint), EX (excellent), VG (very good), G (good) etc. +(+)/-(-) = slightly better/worse than .... Some abbreviations that I use: wo(b)c = writing on (back)cover; wol = writing on label; toc/tol = tape on cover/label; rw = ringwear; soc/sol = sticker on cover/label; nc = no center; co(h) = cut out (hole).
SET-SALE: All records are sold set-sale unless noted. Prices are in EURO. Send an e-mail to reserve the items that you want. Don't forget to mention your name and postal address. For a good fill it is recommended to list some alternatives. Records will be sold first come first served, so get your orders in as quickly as you can.
PAYMENT: All prices are in EURO. Do not send payment before confirmation of your order. You can send your payment with PayPal. Customers from Holland or other EURO countries, please send payment directly into my bank account (ask for IBAN/BIC). Cash in a (registered) letter, only at your own risk. Records will be held 3 weeks for Europe and 5 weeks for overseas.
POSTAGE: Postage = extra. I'll try to keep the postage costs as low as I can (solid packaging, but no fees for materials, handling etc.). Packages abroad will be sent from GERMANY (= cheaper, faster & more reliable then the Dutch postal service). I take no responsibility for lost packages.
