FOR SALE, here I have a pristine as in new condition' Schroeder Reference SQ 10.5" Tonearm made of Snakewood.
The Arm is conservatively rated at 9/10 as it had very little use.
Each Schröder Reference arm requires a minimum of 40 hours to build, and is made entirely by Mr. Frank Schröder himself, in Berlin, Germany. A trained watchmaker, Schröder has perfected the Reference arm over the course of thirty years of continuous tonearm building, and holds a US and European patents on the string and magnet bearing concept at the heart of the Reference tone arm. All parts of the Reference are machined by Schröder manually.
This arm is the Reference SQ 10.5" version made of Snakewood, which adds further refinements like:
• Neutral balance bearing geometry
• Cryogenically treated Nordost Valhalla wiring
• Silver cartridge clips and silver RCA plugs
• Finetuning of vertical tracking angle (VTA)
The waiting period for these arms is now 18 months and the queue for the Schröder tonearms, especially on the second hand market is the best indication of the esteem in which it is held by discerning audiophiles.
No waiting time here, this is your chance to acquire one of the finest tonearms available anywhere in the world for a fraction of the new retail price.
NOTE FOR BRINKMANN BALANCE TURNTABLE OWNERS: For an additional $700.00, the genuine Brinkmann Armbase for this tonearm can be acquired together with the tonearm.
Also, other 10.5"and 12' arm bases for Brinkmann Balance turntable are available.
Low ball offers will be politely ignored and all questions from serious buyers will be answered.
Flat Rate for Shipping at buyer's cost can be arranged.
I prefer direct bank transfer unless the buyer is willing to add the 4% paypal charges to the purchase price.
Thanks for Looking!
