Since its inception, Zzz Records has been an authorized dealer for Nitty Gritty Record Cleaning Machines. Nitty Gritty Inc., based in California, has been around for 30 years, and is recognized as one of the leaders in the battle to preserve vinyl. They manufacture record cleaning machines, protective sleeves, cleaning fluid, and other supplies.
A Nitty Gritty machine is a great investment for your household. They are invaluable for keeping your own records in good shape, as well as when you pick up those slightly beat-up garage sale finds that need a good home. Keep in mind that all of the machines listed below will produce the same results, more or less; the only difference is the amount of work (and time) required to clean each record.
All of our machines run for 10% less than the standard retail price -- from $300 to $915. (6% sales tax added to all sales within Iowa, 7.75% sales tax added to all California customers. UPS shipping charges are also added to final cost.)
