NO MATTER WHAT THE GRADE IS ON AN ALBUM, FROM VG. SOME VINTAGE VINYL RECORDS CAN HAVE STATIC NOISE. DUST AND DIRT IN BETWEEN THE GROOVES CAN CAUSE THIS, I'VE HEARD IT ON ABSOLUTE PRISTINE COPIES TO COPIES WITH SCRATCHES, AGAIN THIS HAS NO EFFECT ON QUALITY SOUND. ITS A POPULAR BELIEF THAT RECORD MANUFACTURERS SELL A PRISTINE RECORD HOT OFF THE PRESS BUT NEW RECORDS CAN BE CONTAMINATED WITH FACTORY DIRT, PACKAGING DEBRIS AND RELEASE AGENTS FROM THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS, NOT TO MENTION STATIC CHARGE. The principal cause of static electric charge on the surface of a record is the friction between the playback stylus and the vinyl groove wall that occurs when a record is played.
Another significant source is the process of removing a vinyl record from its plastic inner sleeve. Because the surface of a record is not conductive (vinyl is an insulator), any static charge that occurs stays locked, immobile on the surface of the record. During cold, dry weather that most of the country is now experiencing, that static charge builds up and is the source on clicks, pops, and noisy playback from our record players. As the record is being played, a microscopic, tiny spark will jump from the record surface to the stylus cantilever as an electrical discharge. That impulse is greatly amplified by the system electronics and results in the "staticiky" noise that you are experiencing.
I use Goldmine® visual grading and always try to grade conservatively. M (mint) Record is new, shiny, never played. M (Mint) Jacket is new no marks, almost always sealed.
NM (near mint) Record is like new, probably played a few times, may have one or two light marks but it doesn't effects on the quality of a sound. NM near mint Jacket is like new, may have a light corner bump, maybe one or two small creases. One or two light flaws.EX (excellent) Record in great shape, may have light marks, played more than a few times but low in surface noise or no surface noise. EX (excellent) Jacket in great shape, has very little edge, spine and corner wear, a light corner bump, maybe some light creasing or ring wear.
Maybe a sticker or two. VG+ (very good plus) Record has been played more times, it has light marks and surface noise but doesn't overwhelm the music. It is well taken care of and it doesn't skip. VG+ (very good plus) Jacket may have more spine and edge wear, More ring wear, one or more stickers, light writing, a punch hole saw or corner cut.Light corner bends could have more creasing as well. VG (very good) Record has been played many times, may have more surface noise, but it shouldn't skip while playing. VG (very good) Jacket has noticeably more spine and edge wear, some splits, more ring wear, tape, corner bends and creases, writing, punch holes and saw cuts could be in this category. G (good) Record is in bad condition, this is worth only for archive items - just to have that until you find better. G (good) Jacket Very bad shape, only using until a better one is found.
