The new price is for tonearm without pod/stand. If you want the pod/stand it will be 249.00 more. Can make a arm insert for your table if needed.
This is a great sounding full body detailed tone arm. The way it set up now is with a custom shim up front which you can change shims and or nuts to fine tune head weight without moving the cart. Once you get the right match for your cart you can use that weight and put it between the cart and headset to make it pretty. It is set up really well for denon 103/103r now. I had to make a middle brass plate for the counter weight to off set the brass shim on headshell. The counter weight can be changed by unscrewing 3 3mm Allen screws. It has 2 original shims (head shell ) from automods if you are going lighter.
The pod/stand is billet 6061 t-6 , solid brass, and solid orange wood. The brass cones are adjustable with your fingers. You can lead shot load or your preference the alum cylinder to play with vibration control.
The arm is wired with shielded cardas wire. I exit the wires out the top of the arm as not to make a tight 90 degree bend against the side wall of a small tube. I do not use RCA jacks on a .2 to 5mv connection. But will make a mount with some female RCA connectors if you want it.
The arm may have 20 to 30 hrs play time. I am making my own 12.5 tonearms now and can use the money for more projects.
