Overview

Backbeat Books and Music is a locally owned store in Perth, Ontario. We specialize in new and used books, vinyl, CDs, turntables and audio gear. We carry new turntables and related accessories from Pro-Ject, Rega and Music Hall. At Backbeat we also have guitar strings from Sfarzo USA, mics and headphones from Shure and, yes, you can buy those little plastic 45rpm adapters at our store too. We are focused on providing a book and record store experience so we do not offer any online shopping. We are a real store where you can browse vintage records, maybe take a listen to one on the turntable, grab a book off the shelf and have a sit on the couch and a bit of a read. We hope that when you are in Perth you stop by and enjoy some time at our store.

A great store for new and used vinyl, as well as new and used books. I make the trip regularly from Ottawa and it's always worth it - Great selection of new stuff, and always a lot of gems in used. Lot's of late 80's...More
