THESE ARE ALL NOW SOLD – EMAIL TO RESERVE SECOND RUN
weight: 415g height: 5cm Width:6.5cm hand lathed – not cast aluminium completely solid high quality HiFi graded vinyl weight made in UK – not moulded from recycled ‘run-off’ chipping
Record weights that fit on the spindle of a record player are designed to ensure the stability of the vinyl for a better tracking.
They will help flatten the record to the platter, and by this, keep resonances and unwanted needle motions to a minimum. You will get the most benefit when playing thin, flexible, slightly warped or bowed vinyl, but it won’t eliminate warping or bowling completely.
Record weights have been shown to provide clearer trebles as well as a deeper bass response and also less skipping needles on records with heavy basslines.
The optimal weight of 415g means firm support (unlike lighter designs) and without long term damage to motor or speed fluctuations unlike some heavier designs.
