THE CONDUCTOR AIR-BEARING A MUST SEE! [Expired]


no longer for sale

Greetings, Up for your consideration is my Conductor Air Bearing Tonearm manufactured by Len Gregory; the Cartridgeman. As you can see from the pictures it is in pristine condition. It may not look like other Conductors you may have seen and this was my intention. I had a chance to hear the Conductor a few years ago and from that time on I was hooked. I loved the arm but had always believed that I could improve upon its very industrial look. As you can see I have succeeded; IMHO. To begin with I disassembled the arm and gave all pieces that could be polished to a machinist and told him to polish everything to a mirror finish ($125). I then sent the flat bar stock portions to be powder-coated with a Satin Black light speckled finish ($65). I then had the machinist fabricate the much larger base-mounting nuts. They are made of 316 Stainless Steel and I had the circumference knurled and the tops polished! ($215). The original nuts simply were not sufficient enough; again IMHO (the stock ones will be included). I then added Discovery Wire w/Cardas Leads ($95) and made my own Stainless Steel Shielded Cable Protectors for the tonearm wire ($45). Finally I terminated w/Cardas RCA jacks ($65). In essence what you have is a straight-thru, from Cartridge Clips-to-Preamp, connection! I have also installed a Cartridgeman Isolator ($150). It comes complete with the original wooden carrying case and the manual. What are not included are the pump and a Surge Tank. Why? Because it would literally cost more to ship them then it would be to buy the items and DYI. You see; the Conductor is a low-pressure design and requires very little air pressure so this very simple, and cheap, around $50, and is all that is needed. The Aquarium pump can be purchased at a Pet/Fish Store and the Surge Tank I used was nothing more than a large clothes detergent container (or any large sealable container will work). The rest is nothing more than some ¼” nylon/PVC hose & some air-hose barbs. These items are all available at any Hardware Store, Lowes or Home Depot. I believe I’ve covered everything? If not please ask me any questions you may have and I’ll be happy to answer them. Thank you for looking. Mark
