A little bit about us-
3 Dachshunds Records is a consumer-friendly small business. I was taught by my Dad at a very early age about consumer satisfaction. I used to ride along with my Dad on weekends when he used to go out of town to supervise one of the many service stations he was supervising (he worked for a Petroleum Company). He taught me at a very young age about making customers happy, doing the right thing, inventory control, etc.
I learned many things as a very young youth about business that some kids didn't learn until after they left high school. Having ran and worked for many businesses during my life, I have an unique perspective on managing a business. I love talking to customers, and my knowledge is fairly sufficient to really contribute to any conversation. We here at 3 Dachshunds Records have a 100% guarantee policy.
Named 3 Dachshunds Records in memory of three former pets, Ware decided
during his years of collecting merchandise to expand into records. His brother, a music major in college, used to be in the record business, owning his own record stores. That along with Ware's own knowledge about records, enticed him to pursue that direction. Having grown up in the sixties, as radio stations played "classic" records, Ware heard them all as there were only a few years of rock n' roll before that time.
Record sales have really increased for the last 13 years while CD sales dropped during that same period. The "total" sound you hear on a Vinyl Record exceeds what you hear on a CD.
The last 13 years has seen a revival of interest in long playing 33 1/3 rpm vinyl records (LP's). Perhaps it is a backlash against the CD trends, not unlike abandonment of 8 tracks or cassettes of former generations. The colorful LP jackets showing the singer usually with a biography on the flip side and the careful handling of the LP, transferring it from jacket to the turntable shows a patience and love for the collection that CD's do not muster. There is also one element of sound that comes through on a vinyl pressing but not on a CD.
So many young people are into vinyl. Parents always tell him about their kids getting turntables for Christmas or Birthdays and many more bring in their children or grandchildren and show them about records, using turntables, etc. Parents love passing on their knowledge about earlier era's loves and what made them happy and so many kids are enjoying their vinyl as well, having grown up listening to Dad's and Mom's Music.
Ware's careful grading, cleaning, and placing records into new polysleeves indicates his love for records but also the desire to sell an appropriate priced record. Ware not only discounts records based on actual condition but also on the jacket condition. He simply sells records for their worth.
The store does in fact have something for almost everyone.
