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!


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.

Hello everyone!!  

First off, we want to let you all know that on Oct 1st we will be stopping our delivery service. Since we have re-opened the shop, our ability to deliver records has been difficult and the Tone Deaf partymobile has taken quite a beating and is on the brink of falling apart. We will still be offering curbside pickup and we will be more than willing to throw your records in the mail for you for a few bucks. Thank you for all your support during the last six months and appreciate the orders you all have made, we loved doing delivery but it has become very difficult to do as of late. 

We also wanted to try and help bring attention to the fact that most of our local music venues are really struggling right now, and a lot will most likely close. Please read this very informative and downright scary article Block Club wrote recently and then sign the form below it. This really is an urgent matter.
