Listed here is a custom VPI tonearm wand storage and/or travel box. It will provide a snug and secure environment to store a second VPI JMW 12 arm wand (or JMW 9 and JMW 10.5 with extra room) and mounted cartridge.
It can also act as a repository for an owner with a single arm/cart combo that would like to have a safe place to store their tonearm while doing maintenance on the turntable, moving a system in a car or a safe haven if guests are coming to visit with small children or pets and you want to put the tonearm away temporarily. Essentially, if you need to store a VPI tonearm wand & cartridge away for safe keeping for any reason, these boxes will aid you greatly. THOUGH THE DESIGN OF THE BOXES WILL KEEP A VPI TONEARM WAND SAFELY STORED AWAY ON A SHELF OR ON A CAR SEAT DURING TRANSPORT, THEY ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE USED AS "SHIPPING CONTAINERS" FOR FEDEX, USPS, ETC. SO PLEASE DON'T USE THEM AS SUCH!
The boxes are made from various sizes and types of wood wine boxes (most are pine) and custom sized high density foam inserts. Some have sliding lids, others have hinged lids with a clasp. Some that will be offered are nailed construction while others are glued dove tail joint construction. All are pretty cool and most certainly unique. Prices are set according to box type/quality and size.
I've carefully measured and cut custom high density foam inserts for each box size/type that will firmly yet gently cradle your VPI JMW tonearm (with or without cartridge mounted). See pictures for how the foam pieces fit & cradle the arm. Included are some additional small strips of foam used as an added "riser" that will fit under the arm wand base (bell) if needed to accommodate for the additional bottom-center clearance of a Soundsmith Counter Intuitive if one is installed on your tonearm counterweight. A users guide will be included with each Tonearm Storage Box.
