Brought to you by HeartFirst Recordsa punk vinyl label and mailorder. Sometimes friends come to town and ask me about used record stores in Munich. Which ones would I recommend.
In the past, I have seen some rather incomplete or outdated lists on the web, but maybe my musical focus is just different. So I have compiled some info here which I hope helps you vinyl fanatics. I have been buying records since the s when I lived in Berlin and when I had little pocket money to spare.
Since those days I visited quite a few record stores around the world. The list below is far from complete, it's missing some stores that for some Hold The Line - Various - In München Nix Los! A Munich Punk / HC Statement I hardly ever visit and don't find worth mentioning. I might add info about those in the future, though. What I buy usually falls into one of the following categories: - Rare well, more or less hard to find Punk, New Wave, Industrial, and some Metal.
For more information about Munich stores, also check out the following websites: - Vinyl hub excellent resource, brought to you by the fine folks at discogs - Recordshops. It's up to you to decide if a store is worth your time and money. I don't pretend to be very objective and have an attitude about vinyl culture, so deal with it. There is also some standard info on the store, such as the following: - Are any new records in the store, or just second-hand ones?
I think that this is relevant for pricing. If yes, how much are the cheapo records? This only is a rough estimation. But also, how many are too expensive, if any? Will they still be there when you come back in 3 years? Running a record store in Munich with new stock, focusing on anything Indie or even Punk, seems like a suicide mission. This definitely is the best Punk record store in town, hands down. There now even is a movie about it. The store is located on a long block right behind the famous Augustiner brewery Westendstr.
Mainly new, but also a selection of used goodies. YES - Is there a cheapo section? Yes, boxes in front of the store if weather permits - How long would it take to browse through every piece of vinyl? Fair DIY prices, slightly higher than online. New LPs starting at around 12 Euro. Munich needs more places like this!
They are located in the hip but unhip because it has been gentrified to death since years Glockenbachviertel which is located close to the city center. The store is pretty big and focuses mostly on dance and electronic music, but also has a decent selection of new and used Rock and Indie vinyl. Basically they have what is hip in the clubs of different sorts in town. They support small local labels of various musical styles by stocking Hold The Line - Various - In München Nix Los!
A Munich Punk / HC Statement vinyl releases and Child Of The King - Keystone Quartet* - Sings them special sections. Often the store is full of DJ types who check out the latest 12"s. Optimal has very knowledgeable staff and know about the different musical styles and what used vinyl is worth. YES, the mix is around half-half. YES, they have various turntables s! YES, also on Discogs.
NO, there are crates on the floor and cheapo bins in the back, but the records there are cheaper but not really that cheap, like not less than 3. Roughly 1. Very inconsistent. This place is not great for deals. Some records have ridiculous prices, but on the other hand some are surprisingly cheap. There was a strong upswing of prices in it seems.
Optimal is a well-established instituation in the Munich Galaxy Constellation - Controlled Fusion - Patient Zero scene. Also, folks who work there seem to also have other jobs, so I am sure the store will be there for many more years.
There used to be two! But unfortunately, they had to close down when the building was sold. But this review is mainly about the main store which is Have You Ever (Original Mix) - Reiklavik & Iga Martin - Have You Ever full of records.
Many of them are not even on display but sit on shelves upstairs or in boxes in front of the counter. This sometimes makes it hard to even enter the store. NO - Can you listen to the records before buying? NO, but they guarantee the records' condition. You can return records if you are unhappy with the condition. NO - Does the store have online access? YES, they have. Actually, they didn't until a few years ago. This has not made their prices come down. Also, there is a 2.
All Singles are 1. One word: expensive. Apart from the cheapos the prices are consistently high, or even extremely high. Sometimes I feel kinda insulted by some of their prices, because much is findable for so much less elsewhere. Their schtick is that everything is in really excellent condition and they have a lot of special titles because they seem to regularly buy complete quality record collections. Otherwise, they might not buy them in the first place. Or they go to their outlet store or straight to the cheapo bins.
Almost everything mediocre is priced by default at 9. The owner seems to hate certain musical styles and bands, so those releases All About Eve - Steve Vai - Fire Garden up being somewhat cheaper. Also compilations are moderately priced most of the time. Metal is also relatively moderately priced, but becoming more expensive recently as the owner is a smart guy and has realized that everyone wants, for example, Black Metal originals and certain NWOBHM bands.
Unfortunately the owner knows that anything even remotely Punk will probably be wanted, so Punk and New Wave can be especially expensive, starting at Krautrock and nerdy stuff from the s is often priced at All 12" Singles are always 9. Almost everything at the store is marked way more than you would pay on Ebay or Discogs for example.
But because of their quality approach at the store they seem to get away with it. Also buying used records online is not for everyone. If stuff does not sell, they might put it in the other store the Filiale.
From countries that do not have many second hand stores like this. I regularly see Italians in the store, also this one guy who I think is from Russia. But that was some years ago. They have been at it for ages and the owner has extremely good knowlegde of all musical styles and their value.
They get away with high prices and constantly get in new stock. Now we are talking! They carry stuff that did not sell at the high Zentrale prices, overstock, but also a lot of stuff that gets put directly in here, mainly because the condition does not meet the high standards of the Zentrale branch.
I find that many of the records in this place rather belonged in the 2. As I said above, the boss is not into selling the goodies cheap. The Filiale sometimes really has a lot of overstock in, as you can see in the picture below. All good records. The Munich store is located Trippin (Hide U Mix) - Various - Music Choice CD JY 284 Hold The Line - Various - In München Nix Los!
A Munich Punk / HC Statement the center Altstadt on Kreuzstr. Also they have a rather trashy, albeit not cheap, 7" section. Much 90s punk which is somewhat obscure but that noone wanted when it came out will be here for at least 10 Euros. What appears more wanted to the owner is 14 Euros or even Lately everything remotely rare is 21 Euros there.
The prices are in the range of 1, Euro. They will mark down prices if something does not sell over time. So you might get lucky if you go there regularly.
They know the prices very well and are aware what is in demand. I do not go there often any more as it seems a waste of time. They have very friendly young staff and the owner seems to be more in the background.

Jan 04, · Their main store (Zentrale, Fraunhoferstrasse 26, München) is in a prime location in Glockenbachviertel, not far from the OPTIMAL record store. There used to be two (!) more stores right next to each other in Augsburg (50 km from Munich) where they sold overstocks from the Munich store at 50 Cent, Euros and Euros.
