!!!!!!!REDUCED!!!!!! Black Friday special price!!!!!!!!!
This ad is for a Sumiko FT-3 Tonearm (made in Japan). This tonearm is like the Jelco 750E . My one have many upgrades recently done. The arm comes with: mounting template & manual instruction, elevation adjustment & VTL locking adjustment tool's (as shown on photos), mounting base screws with washers & nuts, stylus force indicator & counter weight and another extra counter weight for heavy cartridge.
Now let's talk about the upgrades:
A) The tonearm has been rewire (Cardas) by Teatime ($275) ; I will include the invoice. This has been the major transformation regarding the sound that you can get from your cartridge.
B) The rca plugs from this rewire has been replaced with the excellent Teflon rca plugs with Silver center pin from Aural Thrills Audio ($35).
C) Solid brass arm pivot damper (made by TTW from Canada) which help improve the sound & control of this arm ( a new piece of rehusable Yellow-Tak adhesive has been included for installing this damper over the pivot dampening screw). $90
D) Dynamat ( which reduce noise & vibration) has been applied to the top of the solid brass pivot damper and between the headshell & arm tube ($5).
Total amount of upgrades are $405.
I have replaced this tonearm from my turntable with an expensive one.
I have decide to rate as a 7 ( due to age) but funcionality is like a 9 ( the arm works properly).
I am a meticulous audiophile who take care of all my gears (analog in this case).
