Aad's Platenzaak is a much smaller shop than Tommy's. Strong point though are the prizes. Owner Aad imports CD's directly from the USA where they are much cheaper. You will not find many older titles here, mostly new ones, except for second-hand. But there's the occassional collector's item and especially when you like Prince (I don't) this is the shop for you. One problem with this shop; Aad has the extremely annoying habit of suddenly putting on a record much too loud.
One of the more famous products from Tilburg is this liquor of 21,5% that is based on 43 different spices. Try it at any bar or buy a bottle at one of the numerous shops that have it on sale. And don't even try to pronounce the name which is local dialect.
In this small shop you'll find a lot of cd's and records for reasonable prices. You will also find a lot of special pressings and limited editions here. The owner, Aad, brings these cd's from his trips around the world.
What to pay: Prices vary, but for the normal pressings you pay almost half of what you'd pay in other stores.
