Please note there is no better investment for your money as upgrade to an vintage LP12. We will include shipping with-in North America at the asking price.
For sale is a new Hercules 2 power speed device with a power switch and it will play 33 & 45 rpms without an adopter. The AC motor requires a 21mm pulley to run at the proper speed, and a new motor is highly recommended on a vintage LP12.
Hercules speed board sits over the mountings already present on the chassis if you
have a Valhalla (if you have an older, basic power supply, you need to
obtain a cross brace to mount the board onto). The Hercules II replaces
the Valhalla board completely and can be fitted in a very short time,
merely requiring the mains lead and motor wires to be disconnected and
refitted to the new board once in place.
The new on/off
switch that replaces the LP12s original has two LEDs fitted rather than
the one to show the selected speed as the Hercules II offers 33 and 45
rpm. Please note both speeds are selected through this
single button; from standby mode you simply press to switch on at 33
and light the red light, or press for 5 seconds to switch to 45 rpm
and light the blue LED.
Hercules II runs on a pair of low noise, high precision crystal oscillator
circuits that have their frequencies divided to generate a clean AC sine
wave which drives the motor at either 50HZ (for 33rpm) or 67.5 Hz (for
thank you, and good day.
