Galibier Design Headshell Shims - $159 [Expired]


no longer for sale

Galibier Design is your source for all things vinyl in the U.S. Mountain West.

This ad is for a problem solver - a set of headshell shims. Everyone needs a set in their toolbox.

  • It's a Saturday evening and you're performing a new setup.
  • You discover you need to adjust your VTA beyond the range of your tonearm.
  • You want to experiment with different mass for your arm/cartridge combination.
  • Do you really want to wait for the Post Office or (worst-case) a new production run?

This set of three shims includes an angled one we developed to solve an adjustment limitation of the Kuzma 4Point-9 tonearm. The other two are for mass tuning.

You can read the Kuzma story by clicking here.

The following three shims are sold as a set (we don't sell individual shims):

  • A light angled shim made from 7075 aerospace grade aluminum (2.5 grams).
  • A light straight shim, also from 7075 (4.05 grams).
  • A heavy straight shim from brass (8.25 grams).

With 20 years' experience designing turntables, we consider ourselves to be uniquely positioned to solve your vinyl playback problems. Our Galibier turntables may not fit your budget, and it is for this reason we offer both the Feickert and Kuzma turntables which receive our endorsement at their respective price points.

Bonus!  Subscribe to our mailing list and download a free setup report of a recent installation - complete with tips, tricks, workarounds and instructions for creating your own azimuth gauge.

Scroll to the bottom of any page on our website to subscribe.

All new tonearms (cables) are burned in on our Cable Cooker.

All new 4Points sold come with a complimentary set of our headshell shims. Click here to view them.

Questions, Ordering and Payment Options:

Payment can be made by PayPal, major credit cards, check (with time to clear) and of course, old fashioned cash.

Delivery times vary depending on the product. All of our cables are built to order and our power and speaker cables receive an extended burn-in, so factor that in to your delivery expectations.
