A good auction has records for both avid collectors and novice enthusiasts.
Music was always important in Denny Hoekstra’s family. His father was a musician and Denny was often allowed to play records on his record player. That was how he became acquainted with a wide range of genres. The floodgates opened when he got his own record player at the age of 10. Denny began collecting records and hasn’t looked back since. He now has over 6,000 records, and a wealth of experience in buying and selling special LPs.
He puts all these years of experience to good use as an auctioneer. He is committed to putting together great auctions that generate international interest. Denny believes that the perfect auction is high quality and has something for everyone. Auctions with diverse records for novice enthusiasts, special editions for avid collectors and everything in between. Thanks to his sharp negotiating skills and good relationships with sellers, he and his fellow auctioneers have never failed yet.
There’s nothing better than experiencing music through a physical product.
Jeroen Hamelink developed a love of vinyl at a young age. He enjoyed browsing through his parents’ collection and choosing something to listen to. He still enjoys the whole experience of putting on a record. Jeroen has also built up an impressive collection of vinyl and CDs. This is in part thanks to his work as a branch manager in a record shop, where he came across thousands of records and CDs and learned the market inside and out. He now uses that knowledge at Catawiki.
Despite the advent of digital listening options, Jeroen notes that there is increasing demand for vinyl. And not just from collectors. More and more young people prefer to buy their music on vinyl, in addition to having a digital copy. They are often interested in the classics like Led Zeppelin, The Doors and The Beatles records. Jeroen also focuses on lesser-known genres using themed auctions, where a lot of vinyl is on offer. This helps him to create multifaceted auctions, with real gems for vinyl connoisseurs and good quality popular vinyl for enthusiasts.
