Things I buy
English, We do know how to use Babelfish!
My name is Mike Farrace. OptikRock.com is my company. I started as a rock writer for the Sacramento Union and later had my own magazine, Rock N Roll News. I worked for many happy years at Tower Records as a clerk, artist and buyer, and at the ad agency as an account manager and media buyer. I started and published Tower's Pulse! Magazine for around 20 years, and started and/or advised Tower mags in the UK, Japan, Mexico and Taiwan. I also wrestled Tower onto the Internet, starting with America Online's first record store in 1993 and launched towerrecords.com in 1995. During those many years I have been an inveterate collector of all kinds of musical things. I have bought stuff at record stores, street fairs, flea markets and from collectors in places all over the US and the world for around 40 years. I left Tower and started OptikRock in around 2002, using my great collection as the 'starter' for all the great stuff you see here on eBay.

We like the USPS. Fast, cheap and reliable.
14 days for any reason. A reasonable amount of time to be determined if the product is flawed or if something goes wrong that's our fault. Our policy is to talk it over and decide together what's right.
