Penguin Random House Invites You To The Official Launch of Sugar Man Book

Rodriguez Merchandise

Rodriguez Merchandise

Something we put together when we visited your shop [Mabu Vinyl], we were so moved by the movie [Searching For Sugar Man] and decided that next time we in Cape Town, we will purchase Rodriguez merchandise from you, which we did.

It hangs in our bar in Port Elizabeth.

All the best.

Mabu Vinyl has opened another two-roomed basement shop in a house in Oranjezicht where we keep all our more valuable and collectable records in a series of Blue Trommels, hence the name….

In the Blue Trommels are a wide selection of international and SA pressings that we sell on eBay, and to private buyers and collectors from all over the world who visit the basement.

We have plenty of LPs, 10″ albums, 7″ singles, 12″ maxis, and rare CDs in stock in the Blue Trommel Basement and customers are welcome to visit, but by appointment only.

While Mabu Vinyl’s well-known shop in Rheede Street will always be filled to the rafters with lots of great records, CDs, DVDs, books, cassettes and other cool stuff, the Blue Trommel Basement is mainly for those vinyl customers and collectors looking for the more collectable and rare and expensive records.

Please contact Jacques or Stephen to arrange a time to visit the Blue Trommel Basement.

Yip, the Mabu March Madness Half-Price sale is no more…

But we sold a lot of stuff to make room for all our new stock, so come on in and see all our new LPs, CDs and DVDs.

And, don’t forget, Saturday 16th April is Record Store Day!!

So visit your local record store and buy a record, you know it makes sense!

This is Landi, she will show you around…

The PERPL mini guitar amp is a totally portable battery operated headphone amplifier for your electric guitar or bass. Simply plug in your guitar and headphones! You can even connect the PEPL into your power amp, hi-fi or PC, or use it with your effects pedals.
