tonearm inner cable

Hi all, was replacing my cartridge with a new cartridge when I accidentally broke one of the very fine inner tonearm cables! doh!

I can by another from Hendley Designs for £7.50 but is it easy to install a new on? obviously I will be more careful this time..or do I have to get a specialist to install it?

RE: tonearm inner cable

If it is one tag, mounted within the headshell, then you should be able to replace it easily - with care, and maybe some fine-nosed pliers, ot tweezers.  That's what it sounds like for £7.50.

But if your arm is wired through to the arm base, or even through to the cables that lead to your pre-amp, you will probably need it done professsionally.  Worth asking Henley - is it is Pro-Ject model, perhaps?    

It would help to say what arm/TT you are using!  That may be why no-one replied sooner...

Hi, thanks for the reply. It's a pro-ject experience 2- is that hard wired or just simply connectors?

RE: tonearm inner cable

Well, I don't know from memory, but I looked here: http://www.project-audio.com/main.php?prod=xperiencesp&cat=turntables&lang=en

and it says:- 

"The internal wiring consists of flexible high-purity copper from the headshell right through to the gold-plated phono sockets."

 

So, if you do indeed have a Pro-ject 9c tonearm, I'm not sure what you are getting for £7.50, but surely not the whole internal wiring set.  However, I suppose you might still have links from cartridge to within the headshell.  Can you not see if there are tags before the wires disappear up the arm-tube?  If there are tags, then you are OK.

The four little spade-like connectors on the end of the wires at the headshell.

RE: tonearm inner cable

Anything involving internal wiring is going to need to go your dealer (and will almost certainly go back to Pro-ject/Henley to deal with) unless you have expertise in this area.

If not, and Henley cannot help, then try J7 at audio origami (I don't think I'm meant to put a link here, but you'll find them).  They seem to be able to rewire anything.

RE: tonearm inner cable

sorry to hear that - dropped off my turntable to sevenoaks who then sent it to pro-ject, total cost was £50. A costly mistake! not sure if your turntable is hard wired though..?
