Up for sale is my VPI 12" 3D Printed Tonearm with premium Discovery wiring. This was on my VPI Avenger that I received about 1 month ago. The tonearm is in mint condition (except for a small mark on the top of the headshell where the cartridge/screws was mounted, and is not visible when a cartridge is mounted) and is the latest version of VPI's 3D tonearm. Only used minimally, and am upgrading to VPI's reference tonearm. This price is for the arwand ONLY (not the VTA arm base). If you want the base as well, email me at email@example.com and we can work out a price.
The tonearm retails for $2600. Asking $1495 plus 3% paypal fee. FREE SHIPPING.
The arm looks like a traditional VPI Unipivot arm, except it's made in a 3D printer. The material is basically epoxy, which forms a rigid, lightweight, structure with good insulation properties. Epoxy is non-crystalline which impedes the transfer of vibration, so it’s the perfect material for tone arms. The shape of the tone arm shaft also adds rigidity to the structure and further prevents the transmission of surface vibrations. The result is a low resonance lightweight tone arm.
