Where are you located & Where do my items ship from?
TNB Records' main warehouse is located in Adelaide, Australia. It is here that we hold thousands of Vinyl, Cassettes and CD's. We offer a 'Special Order' service that enables you to browse thousands of more titles that we then source from our partner warehouse in the USA and ship to us here on your behalf.
Please note: if your order includes both 'in-stock' and 'special order' items, we will ship your order as a whole once all items have arrived. If you need the in-stock item sooner, just reach out and we will organise it to get out to you sooner :)
I’ve received only part of my order?
Given the above info, we ship from multiple warehouses and it's not uncommon for you to receive multiple deliveries if you have mixed and matched Music and Merch items in the one order.
If you happen to be missing an item from the same warehouse, please email us and we’ll work on resolving this with you. Contact Us (tnbrecords.net)
What currency is your site in?

Customs Duty is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders. The purpose of Customs Duty is to protect each country's economy, residents, jobs, environment, etc., by controlling the flow of goods, especially restrictive and prohibited goods, into and out of the country.
International taxes, duties are not a charge by TNB Records and are the responsibility of the receiver. This fee is not included in your purchase and will be sent to your email during your local custom processing.
Are all items new and sealed?
The majority of the items we sell are brand new, sealed and unused, however if the item is one of our second-hand or scratch n dent item, we clearly list this in our listing description.
Can you order specific items in for me?

What are your payment options?
TNB Records have various secure payment options including; VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, Paypal, Afterpay, Shop Pay, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
My record has a warp in it?
A small degree of warp is quite common, turntable tonearms are designed to compensate for it and unless the warp affects playback you shouldn’t need to worry about it.
Factors that cause the degree of warping are type and quality of the PVC (polyvinyl chloride) used to produce the record, the thickness of the vinyl and whether it became warped due to heat exposure. Coloured vinyl is well known for warping very easily and is of lesser quality to black vinyl. The same can be said for transparent varieties. If it's the music and the audio fidelity that matters to you, always look for black vinyl.
Is the item I am purchasing in stock?
To offer the most awesome range, we stock a combination of both 'in-stock' items as well as 'special order' items. This means we can offer thousands of titles that we hold here in our warehouse as well as our partner warehouse in the USA. Special Order items are clearly marked on each products page and you can even use our search filter to select 'in-stock' items or 'special order'. We have deliveries arriving from our US partner warehouse weekly so your 'special order' item is never far away.
