What To Get A Vinyl Dad For Father's Day

Father’s Day is almost here. As in, THIS Sunday, June 16th. So call your Dad, first of all. That’s the real value of a Hallmark holiday. If you do gifts, and your Pop has vinyl interests, we’ve got some great options that he is going to love. Nobody needs two “World’s Greatest Dad” mugs, after all.

Full Force Hifi Cork Slip Mats - New to Deep Cut’s online store, this California company hand-makes cork slipmats in a variety of fantastically cool patterns and colors. Beyond looking great, these slipmats also are said to improve the sound of your stereo by absorbing some of the vibrations from the motor, speakers, or other sources that can result in unwanted noise in the needle signal. And they reduce static. And that’s all great, but come on, just look at them! It is an instant style upgrade for any turntable. (Price: $25 - free shipping to the lower 48) - order deadline for Father’s Day: 11:59pm on Tuesday, June 11th.

Deep Cut Coasters - Maybe Dad’s record situation is all set. Maybe he keeps talking about getting a turntable, but he just hasn’t pulled the trigger (read our “Where To Start” blog if that’s the case) . Or maybe he’s never going to do the record thing, but he appreciates the style and culture around vinyl. Either way, these solid, handmade maple coasters featuring a vintage turntable design make a nice addition to any space that is meant to be enjoyed. Living room, home bar, kitchen - wherever. They’re just fun to have around. Added bonus: he may even stop leaving drink rings on the nice wooden table. Come on Dad! Still?? (Price: $16 for a set of 2, $29 for a set of 4 - free shipping to the lower 48) - order deadline for Father’s Day: 11:59pm on Tuesday, June 12th.

Onzow Zerodust Stylus Cleaner - no matter how clean you keep your records, eventually your stylus is going to build up dust and other gunk, which can degrade your turntable’s sound. This stylus cleaner offers an easy and effective way to remove all the gunk without damaging your equipment. It is also very satisfying to use. You just drop the stylus onto the gel-like dome, and lift it back up to see what it left behind. All that was on my styus?? Now it isn’t?? Fantastic. It gets a lot of use around Deep Cut households. (Price: $45) - check website Father’s Day delivery deadlines.

Stylus cleaner that is easy to use and clean. A must-have for turntable owners.

Vinyl Subscription from Vnyl - Finding new music can be hard, especially on vinyl. There are a few vinyl subscription services that promise to introduce you new artists and releases. Vnyl puts special emphasis on matching the selections to the user’s taste. So your Dad won’t end up with a post-rock tone poem when what he really wants is a vocalist with some soul. (Price: $40 for one month, $100 - on sale - for 3-months) - subscription service, so don’t have to worry as much about delivery. Just write it in a nice card perhaps?

Spin Clean Record Washing Kit - Older record collections (possibly like your Dad’s) may have picked up some dust and grime over the years. For that deep grit, Pittsburgh-based Spin Clean has a record washing kit that includes solution, a specially designed bath that soaks and scrubs the vinyl, and lint-free drying towels. All of it made in the USA. (Price: $79) - check website Father’s Day delivery deadlines.

Spin Clean is still THE record cleaning device of choice for many after all these years.

Integrityhifi Tonearm Lifters - If your Dad has a turntable without an automatic tonearm lifter, you may have heard that annoying scratching sound at the end of a side of a record as the platter keeps spinning and the needle traces the blank center of the disc. Not only is it annoying, but it puts unnecessary wear on the needle. This gadget, which can be installed on any record player, will automatically raise the tone arm at the end of a record side. Their videos also make for a very soothing watch. Smooth action… (Price: $209) - check website Father’s Day delivery deadlines.

And if dad needs a better way to store and display is records, there’s always the Deep Cut line up including Wall Cubes and Flip Shelves. Handcrafted from beautiful hardwood materials, featuring the cleanest of designs, and with easy assembly-free install right out of the box. Added bonus: he gets to use his drill, but will likely be done in under 15 minutes.

Holiday Gift Guide For Record Lovers And More
Holiday Gift Guide For Record Lovers And More

November 22, 2022

We want you to crush this holiday. We want each of your gift recipients to shed a single tear that catches the glint of candle light just as a light snow begins to fall on the handbell choir that has gathered to serenade the class of orphans that has come to the town square to pick out a kitten from an miracle litter at the humane society. And we want them to say ‘This [sob] is what Christmas means to me.” And if the gifts in your own stocking would earn the side-eye from the Goodwill donations rep, we’d like you to have some ideas for yourself as well.

Interior Design for Turntable Setups: How to incorporate records beautifully into your living space

August 30, 2022

“Trends can be really fleeting. Something might be trendy, and then you are sick of it six weeks later. And this happens faster these days because, with Instagram and these other platforms, you will just see so much stuff.” Gilmore tells her clients not to copy Instagram. “Try to dial in on what it is you’re actually attracted to,” she says. “Is it the use of lighting? Is it a really interesting wood detail?” Thinking about the broader effect, rather than the specific detail, can help you avoid creating a space that feels dated a year or two later.
