.

The Horrible customer service completely cancels out the great & amazing collections of CDs, Records & LPs this store has. I live exactly 16 miles away form this place, I go there the first day & find some amazing titles. But my 1st run-in with their bad customer service came from one of the staff members - his knowledge wasn't as great as I thought it might have been.
2nd bad customer service: There was a rare Cajun CD that their preview system didn't read in their Data base, so I asked them (It was used) if there was any other way I could listen to the CD to see if I was gonna put it on the rest of the CDs I had & getting ready to pay $60 for. My response was, go find the album & see if you can listen to it on the internet. Any other Records store would have at least extended me the courtesy of letting me listen to the album for a few minutes.
3rd Bad customer Service: I get ready to pay $50 for some rare 1920s Blues CDs I wanted to buy, and the guy - the owner perhaps who went by the name of Dave, told me that my Bill was too old for him to accpet and that I needed to go find a newer bill to pay with. I asked can he put the item on hold for me, he agree but only until the next day.
So they EXPECT their customers to have internet access at home (which I don't) & they expect an easy internet access for all of their customers, and on top of that they must rbing in new clean crip bills if they want to pay in cash.
4th Bad customer service Experience: The Next day I go back feeling all excited that now I can finallty but the CD's and hear some rare 1920s Blues music, - I took 3 CDs of mine to see if I can actually trade them and get even a better discount so hopefully I can get some more CDs- One of the people who works there tries to comeplte with me to get inside before I do, and then turn around and tells me that the buyers is on his lunch & he can't serve me for another 35 minutes and that I need to wait. It was 3:45 pm, so I didn't understand the whole lunch thing given that it wasn't exactly lunch hour.
I tell the guy, look I'm parked on the street and If I wait for you buyer to come my time on the meter will run out, can they please call him up, I'm here getting ready to pay them $60.00 RIGHT NOW- These are just 3 discs. He said I need to wait, I tell them have items on hold & I am baout to make a $60.00 transaction- he told me he didn't care & that I needed to wait.
So they pretty much expect their customers to make things wasy for them & adapt to them,, but they refuse to do anything for the customer. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that this place has no competition, they can get away with giving their customers poor serivce, and Oh yes, I'm a colored man, and everyone working here is white pothead dressed up like wackos as well, so go figure.
I guess there are enough crackpots in the neighborhood that reward them for their bad behavior, or maybe because their fine details matches the fine detailes of them, they go out of their way to help them but not me, which means, this establishment at BEST is also RACIST, a man of color want to pay but has a good Old bill, they make him go change it, then they make him wait. As if the customer doesn't have a life of his & other things to do that he has to wait for them. NO NO NO, I don't recomend this racist establishment with lots of white potheads working who expect you to bed over backward for them & give them you money. DON'T GO HERE! LET THEM GO OUT OF BUSINESS SO THEY LEARN A LESSON ABOUT MAKING THINGS EASIER FOR THE CUSTOMER.

I'm a regular at this Valley store that sells new and used vinyl, CDs and DVDs.

Uppers: They have a pretty good selection and the prices are usually reasonable. I've bought 'used' CDs, still in their plastic wrapping, starting at $5.99 and new starting at $7.99. New release stuff is usually $10-$13. I've never had a scratched or unplayable used CD. The frequent buyer card gives you a stamp for each disc you buy and after 10 stamps they give you $7.99 off your bill or choose a disc for free ($7.99 or less). The tunes they play in store are usually good.

Downers: It's poorly organized, doesn't have much turnover and many of the staff are surly at best. I've never sold anything here but I once made the mistake of asking what was playing on the store's stereo and got a withering look for not knowing - it was Ash. Although visiting just about once a week only one of the regular staff acknowledges that they've ever seen me before. Attempts to engage in chat at the register are met with the briefest of replies. I once saw a kid try to sell a dozen CDs, only three or four of which they wanted to buy. He asked where else he might try to sell them - a reasonable question - and the kid was much derided after he'd left the store. This is good old fashioned record store snobbery at its finest.

This is not the place to drop into to pick up that latest piece of throwaway pop or gangsta rap; their main business is alternative, rock and jazz. But I can browse away an hour or two easily and have found some bargains.

Pros: Some bargains, frequent buyer program

Cons: Staff, slow stock rotation

I can't tell you how glad I am that this store exists, let alone that it is in my neighborhood. Amoeba, Soundsations (still around?) are great but too far for the casual visit. Moby Disc is long gone. Haven't been to Freakbeat. But--CD Trader rocks!! It is fairly well organized, but not set up to be visually-friendly to the newbie. You have to learn your way around, but it is worth it once you do. Rock is their largest music category, and it is split into new and used; other categories are combined. They have a lot of rare, unusual, hard-to-find cds, and many a treasure I have unearthed there. Their prices are usually outstanding, and their bonus system is pretty generous. DVDs are also a strength here. They are building up their Blu-Ray inventory now, too. There are lots of great little pockets to discover; you must always scan new arrivals for music and DVD, and there are usually some juicy items behind the counter and in the glass case. Even the trays they use to stock the shelves can be perused for great finds! They recently added a books section, which I suggested to them years ago, and the prices on books are especially great. There is also a large T-shirt rack now for those who are interested. About a third of the store is dedicated to vinyl now, which I find charming but I have pretty much left that technology behind at this point. They offer pretty fair trade in prices on most things, but they can be a little picky at times. The upside of that is I am always very confident when I buy a used item from them that it is in excellent condition. Music played in the store is often outstanding and usually for sale, I've snagged many a gem that way!

There are only a few down-sides to CD Trader, and most are mentioned elsewhere. They close a little on the early side (8 pm), and man, do they ever rush you out the door as it gets close to zero hour! The staff is very Jekyll & Hyde: some are friendly & nice---but they usually don't last too long. The typical staff is pod-person flat. There are a few who are curt on a good day and downright ornry the rest of the time! I've come very close to blowing my stack a few times at the tatooed gal who is clearly off her meds. The old owner used to let patrons use the bathroom, but those days are long-gone, so if you are going in to browse, make a pit-stop first. Some of the shelves are a bit low for us older folks. I don't really care for the generic music sampling system they use--many titles are not listed and who wants to share headphones with the general public these days! They used to have players to let you listen-- but gas also used to cost under a buck. Parking is tight during the day, and the lot is cramped. All of these issues can be easily navigated, though, when you consider the trade-off. This is pretty much the only non-internet source I use anymore for music and DVDs. I have to say that I love this store!

Not all the employees are rude, but the manager of this place takes the cake for bad customer service. If you are a vinyl buyer I would highly recommend Amoeba or another store. CD Trader has very high prices for collectable LPs, and a no-return policy on new LPs.

I have been a loyal customer for the past year spending $100-200 a month on mostly vinyl and some CDs/DVDs. Over the course of a year I have returned 4 LPs all brand new, each with a very bad and obvious defect, ie bad warp or off center spindle hole. Each time I was given a hassle and treated rudely in returning a brand new defective LP, as if it was my fault the product was defective, or I was "just being to picky".

Today was the last straw when I tried to return a new 2 record set that had an obvious large warp on both LPs and was unplayable on my system. The manager refused to refund or exchange my copy for another, complaining to me that it was not his fault that the record was defective and that I am just too picky a customer and will not take anymore returns from me.

In this economy what kind of store manager would turn away a loyal paying customer to save a few dollars on a single purchase??? The funny thing is that the records I previously returned just ended up back on the shelf reduced by a $1-2 or re-wrapped as new.

All I can say is buyer beware, drive to Amoeba for a better music selection, no-hassle return policy and great customer service. It??s worth the extra drive!

PS: I just read through the other reviews here, the common thread is the bad customer service and attitude of the employees. Funny how the first few reviews sound just like a store advertisement, instead of a real review from a real person???

I am a record collector from England and visit LA four or five times a year. I have explored dozens of used CD stores over the years and always check out any new ones throughout the LA area.
My first stop is always Soundsations in Westchester because it is close to LAX, but the preferred choice to check out used CDs is always CD Trader in Tarzana. I find that ( for jazz) they have interesting selections not found elsewhere and have excellent prices. I go elsewhere but CD Trader is TOPS.
I know that if I go to Amoeba I can often find the same CDs but never at a better price and often not available even in Amoeba's vast selections.

This place is mediocre at best. Yes, there are occasional finds for decent prices. Yet, the rotation is slow! I have attempted to bring in good dvd & lp material for trade or sale, but the offers these guys give are insulting to the collector. They don't even give a higher percentage for store credit. Come on guys, are you serious?! Don't they realise that it is good for business? I recommend Amoeba to all that read this. The customer service is another area of concern. CD Trader is just not cutting it for the collector.

Pros: One of the larger music stores in the Valley

Cons: Selection could be better, service could be better

.

This used to be a really great place. Amazing finds used for 5.99 or even 3.99, though most are 7.99.

I was there last week and bought 9 CDs. It turned out both discs of a double-disc album were horribly scratched, so much that my CD player wouldn't even play it. When I brought the CDs back the next day, they just pointed at their "no returns" sign and refused to take the album back. They claimed they would never have sold CDs in that condition. Without my receipt, my cause was hopeless; so I ate the loss and vowed never to return.

If there was no such thing as Amoeba, I would consider going back to CD Trader, but since there is - screw you, CD Trader!

I hereby proclaim this store only for the use of deep west valleyites who don't feel like driving to Amoeba.

This place rocks. I first discovered this store around 1990 or so. I have yet to find a used music store as good as this one. They have a great selection. You can find CD's, LP's, imports, new & used, VHS, DVD's and lots of other stuff. You can listen to the used CD's before you buy them, which has saved me from buying some real bad discs in the past. They also have a customer loyalty program where you can earn free music. The staff isn't the greatest, but the shop sure is. They also buy used product for cash or store credit.

PROS: great selection. listen to music before you buy
CONS: the staff could be more helpful

I enjoy coming to this store more than any other music store in the vicinity because they buy cd's, so I can get rid of those ones that are collecting dust on the shelves. Awesome!

I've been going here for a while now, and I have to tell you this is the best place to go in the valley. Huge selection of CDs, DVDs, and records. The staff is always friendly and will make an effort to hook you up with whatever you're looking for even if you can't remember the title. Also, now you can preview CDs before you buy them at the various listening stations throughout the store. I can't say enough positive things about this store. It's the only place I shop in the valley.

PROS: They pretty much have whatever you want.
CONS: There aren't more of them.

Don't shop anywhere else. CD Trader is the best record, CD, and DVD store in the San Fernando Valley. They buy, sell, and trade new and used media. They're prices are fair on both new and used purchases. Best of all, when you buy ten CD, DVDs, or records, you get one for free. And, if they don't have what you want in stock, they will gladly order it for you and when it arrives, they will call you. Sometimes, the CDs are even cheaper at CD Trader than they are on iTunes and here you get the physical disc too.

PROS: Cheap

Sometimes, the CDs are even cheaper at CD Trader than they are on iTunes and here you get the physical disc too.

PROS: Cheap
CONS:

I used to really like this place but whenever I go in I feel like I'm greeted by Jack Black from High Fidelity. The customer service isn't all that great but they do have a good selection of used cds and dvds most in great condition and a pretty decent price tag.

PROS: Lots of DVDs and CDs
CONS: Don't expect them to care

CD Trader has been around for a while. They have a steady group of regulars, myself included. They offer used and new CD's and DVD's. DVD section is a limited. Jazz cd section is bountiful. Good picks if you're willing to search a little. For music hounds such as myself, that's no biggie. Only thing is that you can't preview cd's before you buy them. Rock section is huge, most of the store actually. Box sets and memorabillia also available. Blues, reggae sections are limited. I've traded some Merle Travis and Neil Diamond CD's I don't ever remember buying, and I was able to hook up some nice deals. You can also get a frequent buyer card. After 10 purchases, 11th is on the house ($7.99 or less).
