If you are not using some type of system to press the record firmly against the platter for vibration control, you are missing out on half of the performance your turntable can provide. That is a proven fact. You "must" be able to help eliminate the incredible vibrations that are being created by the stylus dragging through the vinyl grooves. The imaging and sound staging will be enhanced dramatically. That in turn improves all the dynamics throughout the range. If you dont have a vacuum system, clamping and then weights are the next most effective alternative.
Nothing works better for attracting resonance and dampening it, than brass and the air-dried myrtlewood that is used in these products. They have incredible mass, a perimeter outer rim foot for decreasing skin effect and label contact, and a neoprene washer to place under the record to help cup the record flat. Each one is made from the most beautiful and unique burl available. No two are alike.
A custom box is included along with half the priority shipping. $6.50 to anywhere in the US covers all fees. Please contact me direct @, (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any questions. Its much easier and discreet than going through this facebook type system.
Look for Wai Puna Sound listings of 1,2 and 3 lb, burl and brass record weights if your spindle is not threaded. Please visit my website for all my other great resonance control products at, www.myrtlefeet.com.
