Old School Music Formats Making An Impressive Comeback

You’ve probably heard that vinyl sales have increased for 11 straight years. Can you guess what other old school music technology is also making a comeback? The image above should provide a clue!

Vinyl boasted a 22% jump and CASSETTE sales grew by 35% in 2017. While these dated physical formats still make up only a fraction of music industry revenue, the comeback is still impressive. Just last year Sony announced they’d restart pressing records after a 28-year hiatus.

It’s no wonder turntables and vintage audio equipment is selling well at garage sales these days!
