About Gaffer


Let me tell you a little bit about me and my journey to becoming a bit of a vinyl junky

Growing up I could never afford records and used to visit my friends and peers who were collectors, spending hours  listening  to the latest purchases whiling away the hours. Later we would go to house parties and raves and try to find out what the latest big tunes being played were. Remember this was pre Shazam and Spotify

Much much later I rekindled passion and started collecting vinyl after going to an open vinyl session called Vinyl Therapy. At these sessions you could only play 3 records, all on a particular theme, so you had to be creative and do a lot of research to stay on theme. However this really tweaked my interest  and i began buying vinyl records. So what started out as a hobby has grown into a passion. I now run my own vinyl only session called Hands on Decks and a vinyl appreciation group called South London Vinyl Experience.

Through my running of the vinyl sessions I discovered the power of community and how pleasurable a simple thing like putting a needle on a record and hearing that unique sound come out of the speakers can be!  Through trial and error I have had to become more knowledgeable about equipment and accessories around playing vinyl at different venues and my aim is to pass on that knowledge and experience and make new discoveries that will hopefully help others at the same time.

In order to produce this website, I have also joined a cool platform for internet entrepreneurs.  If you have been thinking about starting something online, then this is the place to do it. You get a free website, and you can have it up and running within the first few lessons of the training (which is included within the test drive).

You can take any of your passions or interests and build a business around that, just like I am doing here. It is pretty straightforward and leverages the affiliate marketing business model. The company is called Wealthy Affiliate (they have a 4.9 out of 5 trustpilot rating).

There is a good breakdown on their website as to what is included in the platform, and how this business actually works. I think you are going to find it really interesting, but if you have any questions do let me know.

My mission, my goal, and what I get enjoyment out of is helping other people achieve results. So my passion derives from helping folks, and I know that I can help you or anyone else you choosing the equipment.

The goal of the website is to help others  to help me ! I love playing vinyl records and I want to impart some knowledge around vinyl record accessories, pass on the passion for vinyl and grow a community of vinyl lovers! In turn I will be able to buy more records (lol) and grow the open deck sessions that I run

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
