About Us / Our Beliefs
My name is Yannis Pantazis and I was born in Athens, Greece, in the early 1970’s. I started collecting vinyl records right around mid 1980’s. I bought vinyl records before I even had a turntable. The vinyl record attracted me so much. From then on, I never stopped loving music and, more importantly, I never stopped believing in the vinyl record.
In Vinylom we BELIEVE in Music. Without music, life would be extremely hard. Many times music is the only medicine our heart and soul need.
We BELIEVE that the vinyl record is the best format for music to “live” in. We sure love CD’s and cassettes, but the vinyl record could be a unique piece of art, even if it is released in millions of copies. Everything about a vinyl record is a pleasant experience, even the small scratches or the "hairy lines" that define its route through time.
We BELIEVE that the vinyl record is not just a strictly commercial product; it is something deeply sentimental. Every vinyl record in our collection, is a small piece of our lives. It’s full of sounds and feelings, joy and sorrow. Many vinyl records represent the circumstances of when they were bought. So, we should strive for a platform that respects it and gives it value, when it comes to the sale or trade of it.
We BELIEVE that getting vinyl records through a marketplace should be attainable and available to anyone. We cannot put a ceiling on the prices, but we can easily allow trades between users, thus enabling all collectors to obtain vinyl records paying nothing but also to unload records they do not want.
We BELIEVE there must be a Community of people who love music and the Vinyl Record format and who will create strong relationships with each other, help each other and work all together for the development of the vinyl album by a powerful music community.
That's why we created Vinylom Community, Vinylom Marketplace and Vinylom Encyclopedia. That's why we collaborate with vinylom users around the world, with whom we share beliefs and work hard to improve and develop the marketplace, the blog the Community and all other features to be added soon.
That's why vinylom managed to have thousands of registered members globally, hundreds of sellers and 1,500,000 items on sale. Numbers which become larger as you read these lines.
