Tone Deaf Records

Tone Deaf Records is an independent record store located in the lovely Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago. We carry new and used records, CD's, shirts, record cleaning kits, and other fun stuff for the vinyl junkie. We specialize in punk, metal, jazz, soul, indie, classic rock and a ton of other musical genres. We have been open since June of 2019 and look forward to your visit. Drop in and say hi when you are in the hood!

Recent News 5/30/2020

We've been getting a lot calls and e-mails asking when we will be opening the shop back up. Legally we are allowed to open on June 3rd but we just don't feel comfortable opening the shop up to the general public that early. So, in the interim we have decided we will be offering 30 minute solo shopping appointments. Starting on Friday, June 5th, you can give us a call or email us to schedule an appointment. We will have a strict set of rules to abide by. Face mask must be worn at all times, you must sanitize your hands when you walk in (we will provide the sanitizer), you must come alone and unfortunately the listening station will be off limits, though we will be happy to play you any record on the shop system. If you still don't feel comfortable with this, we are still offering free no-contact delivery service. We will be sending another email and social media blasts announcing this. As far as a date for opening the store, we are shooting for sometime in mid to late June so stay tuned for announcements around that. 

As just mentioned, we are still doing free delivery service to the NW side of Chicago and a few NW burbs. This has been going very well and hope you all have been enjoying it. You can order from this very website below and make sure you enter your correct address and phone number so we can text you when the goods have been dropped off. We plan on tentatively continuing the delivery service after we have opened again, but we will be scaling it down from same day delivery to a twice a week delivery. 

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, concerns, requests, or whatever. Thanks for your patience and look forward to seeing you all again very soon. 

We Buy Records

If you have any records you would like to sell for cash or store credit, you can bring them by the shop or give us a call to setup a house call.
