Technics SL-1200 series solid one piece exotic hardwood tonearm boards (made to order): £POA inc fitting kit for Ebony and £POA for African Blackwood (approx 1" thick).
Ebony, African Blackwood and other exotic wood SL-1200 / SL-1210 tonearm boards.
Made to fit a wide range of tonearm / bases.
These do not ring or impart a metalic sound that many customers report after having tried steel / aluminium / copper / brass / gunmetal etc armboards.
Unlike other woods they do not over dampen or mask the sound either.
Ebony and African Blackwood have just the right acoustic properties to bring out the very best of your deck and tonearm.
Once the original arm is removed the Magna Audio armboard is fitted from above via 3 discreet black domed bolts into
our unique non-invasive blind nut fixing system that simply fits in the plinth from above.
No taking the deck apart each time the arm is to be removed.
If you have two or more arms and armboards this makes swapping between them very fast.
I can also make a top bolt free solution if preferred.
See customer feedback for reviews - the sound quality surpasses any metal plate or other solid armboard they have tried.
Fitting kit includes custom threaded inserts and black caphead bolts for easy self fit.
For those who already have rivnuts fitted I can of course supply just the board at reduced cost.
I supply full original arm removal and new armboard fitting instructions.
I also make armboards for Thorens TD range, Garrard 301 / 401, Technics SP-10, Lenco, Linn Ariston, separate tonearm columns, solid brass or gunmetal armboards and many more. Please enquire.
SME fitting £10 extra for all armboards.
