FS: Garrard 301, modified and restored by Loricraft with a special tonearm

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am selling a highly upgraded Loricraft restored Garrard 301 (oil bearing) turntable along with a special tonearm. This turntable has gone through complete strip down restoration. Here are the details:

1. The motor has been restored with NOS parts from the original Garrard motor. These spare parts are only available with Loricraft. As per their assessment, my motor is as good as NOS.
2. Platter has been refinished to make it absolutely true and even (see picture)
3. The main bearing has been reworked to improve the tolerance to a much higher level. As per Loricraft it is quieter than a NOS grease bearing. It is the same job they do for their 501 models. 
4. All new springs, linkages, grommets and bushings as per NOS Garrard standards.

Additionally, there are some very important mods:
1. Kokomo Mk2 bearing upgrade
2. Audio Silente idler wheel
3. Woodsong Audio brake wheel
4. Western electric power cord
5. Funkfirm Achromat platter mat

The plinth was specially imported from Russia and is made of multiple layers of baltic birch ply.

Tonearm: This is a magnetic bearing tonearm (like Schroeder). It replaced my SME M2-12. A very quiet, neutral and accurate sounding tonearm. For more info, please contact me as it is not a commercial product.

Asking GBP 3500  with tonearm. If you do not want the tonearm then let me know, we can work it out.

I will ship worldwide and accept Paypal.
