I have some real works of art – LP album covers! Santana’s first album, Earth, Wind and Fire’s All ’n All, Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life, Freddy Fender’s Wasted Days and Wasted Nights – how to display them all? Go ahead and drop the needle because WAXRAX has the solution.
They produce extremely sturdy, extremely stylish racks that simultaneously allow you to store and display your vinyls. Their “LP-C” vinyl record pedestal holds up to 60 records. As WAXRAX says, “Vinyl albums are works of art: place them on a pedestal.” Then there is the “LP-H” vinyl record console. A combination shelf for your turntable and audio system, it can hold 550 records, which would allow a bit longer listening session.
Indy music clearinghouse Pitchfork proclaimed the WAXRAX “45A” center-hole adapter for 45’s as the top in the industry. Do millennials need us to spell this out? A “45” was the 7” record that fit the single on top and the “B-side” on the back. It plays at 45 revolutions per minute. It had a bigger hole than a 33 1/3 rpm, but you could play it on the same turntable if you put an adapter in the middle, a little disc with a distinctive squiggle spider shape. WAXRAX even has a glow-in-the-dark 45 adapter, so DJ’s on the ones and twos won’t be groping in the dark.
David Stanavich heads the company, which has been proudly building racks in NYC since 2013. Benchmark printed the brochure on their racks and a postcard promoting the 45A adapter. As they say, “For the record, WAXRAX is best.”
