Tonearm is made by Alfred Bokrand

German broadcast engineer (Radio+TV)

very well known for its Ortofon AS-309 12 "straight

and Ortofon AB-309 12 "banana tonearms

I only have the parts to make 3-4 arms. Do not miss the opportunity to own a tonearm with one of the lowest distortions in the world. There are only 8 of these tonearms worldwide until now. Now you can buy one of the best Tonearm

perfect music reproduction is no coincidence but arises from best armtube geometry

EMT 16" Tonearm

effektive length  415.7 mm


This tonearm produces the fewest distortions world wide. 16 inch tonearms were specially built for broadcast applications 

- first EMT 16 " tonearm was made for Stefano Pasini for the Carrson Broadcast turntable

Stefano Pasini has written the world famous book


Deutsche perfektion

the first important thing is the geometry of the arm tube for lowest distorsions.

Only then do materials come from armtube, bearings or internal wiring as influencing elements.

This is similar to Formula 1. If the engine is wrong, they can have the best tires and the best aerodynamic, but they will not win

only a perfect geometry of the armtube guarantees a low distortion.this is the first and most important thing with a tonearm.not the material, not exotic armtube materials or mimics can eliminate a fundamental distortion that exist due to a wrong and bad geometry.material of the armtube and Vaccination only has an impact on resonance and vibration coming from the plinth (engine vibration and music waves) tonal arms are offered on the market, which cost well over $ 15,000 and are advertised that give the materials the highest in technology (space travel, NASA ect)


the geometry of a perfect tonearm with the lowest  distorsions consists of:

 1) effective length

2) overhang

3) offset angle

 nothing more and nothing less


these 3 parameters are dependent on each other. This is mathematics and is based on formulas that have absolutely nothing to do with materials. With existing PC calculation programs, anyone can see if their tonearm has the least distortion due to the armtube geometry. This is the only objective method and not the subjective belief in exotic materials or great promises.

 If the distortions are very high, because the geometry of the armtube  is bad, then helps  no ball bearings from NASA or whatever. Many manufacturers want to persuade one. it also no helps no arm tube, made of 500 years old wood, which is the specially manufactured and polished by moonlight from a virgin.
