Calibration of Pitch and Mainboard

Mainboard calibrated to 262.08khz. Pitch calibration begins at 2.7ohm and is tuned accordingly to +6 (with repro pitches, +3.3 will usually be around +2.0 to +2.5. -3.3 will be at -3. Zero will be perfect). We use a pair of matched resistance pitches for all our servicing (when servicing a pair).

We still have stock of genuine replacement pitch sliders if required, please enquire.


Deep clean of platter starting with a hot soak, brush scrub and light machine polish. Please note, this will remove most of the tarnishing but does depend on the condition of the platters initially. Full platter restoration is also available on request.
