Garrard 401 COMPLETELY REBUILT WITH HI-END PARTS [Expired]


no longer for sale

Completely Rebuilt Garrard 401.

 

VERY low use 50Hz (CONVERTED TO 60Hz ) model 401 in Excellent cosmetic condition!

…..

Table has been completely rebuilt with high quality parts including the following parts:

…..

New motor bushings in top and bottom motor housings and new felt washers in both ends.Rivets were drilled out and tapped for Philips head screws, new bronze bushings installed and the felts replaced.

…..

Spindle bearing was disassembled, spindle was cleaned and a Kokomo spindle bearing by Analogue Tube Audio of Germany was installed.  

…..

 All springs on the motor suspension were replaced. Various springs on table were replaced with new springs and other small parts from Classic Turntables.

All linkage was cleaned and lubed with white lithium grease.  A new strobe cover under the platter was installed. The original Garrard 50Hz motor pully was replaced with a 60Hz pully by Woodsong Audio. The idler wheel was replaced with a new style idler from Woodsong Audio. The platter has two dampening rings attached from Classic Turntables.

…..

The original 220 volt strobe bulb has been replaced with a modern Keystobe brand LED strobe light and pulse unit set to 60 Hz power and use of an original 50Hz platter. Although expensive this is the only way to actual adjust the speed in real time AND use the 50Hz platter in the USA with our 60Hz power. The majority of 401s are European 50Hz models and without the installation of the KeyStrobe Pulser and Light unit you have to use the old-fashioned strobe lite in hand and spinning platter insert with the timing marks, no on the fly speed adjustment!!  AND a major pain……..

…..

Cosmetically the 401 looks very good suffering a few usual marks/blemishes.

Please refer to the attached pictures. Also, there is a picture of some of the old parts that were replaced during the rebuild. Note the pic of some of the new parts has a strobe bulb and a Classic bearing. I opted for the better Kokomo bearing for this rebuild. 

.....

Add a high quality plinth of your choice and mount your favorite arm/cartridge and see what all the idler-wheel fuss is about!!!

…..

TT is subject as it is listed on audiogon, USaudiomart and locally.

…..

The 401 unit will ship in its own box. Shipping and insurance will be via FedEx ground and at buyers’ expense. PayPal fees on the seller.

…..

Local inspection & pickup in Westchester County NY is welcome.

…..
