I'm offering my Michell Engineering "Tecno Arm A” for sale. This arm is rated as an 8/10 only because it has the usual light marks on the headshell from cartridge mounting, and normal wear marks on the cable ends from use. The bearings are in perfect condition. This is arguably the best Rega based arm one can get. The original Michell arm accessories are included in the sale:
- Two different counter weights w/ fine adjustment hub
- Precision VTA adjusting mount
- Allen key for adjustments
This arms sells currently for $1,195.00 USD. Here's some info from an online retailer:
Michell Engineering "Tecno Arm A” is a fundamental mechanical rebuild of the well-known RB250 tonearm, to which is added monolithic wiring of the highest quality. The arm tube is bead-blasted and perforated, which disperses structural resonances and yields a lower effective mass. The arm wand is internally damped to reduce resonance further, and the headshell is machined flat, to allow true azimuth relative to the bearing cradle. After modification the bearings are re-adjusted for highest possible performance, according to original Rega procedures.
The price is in US dollars. I'm happy to accept Canadian dollars with the current exchange rate. Shipping is a flat rate of $40 to anywhere in North America via Canada / US Post.
