What armplate do I need?
English

I think i'm finally pulling the trigger, next week, and buying the Tonearm, DC motor and PSU that I need to get my Gyrodec working.

My Gyro has a Rega armplate and I think i'm going to get a Tecnoarm A. Is the armplate compatible with the arm?

Woohoo!! about time Bretty!

The brilliant TechnoArm will fit directly onto you armboard no problemo as long as its not the latest 3 point rega fixing armboard (which it probably isn't)

You ain't kidding!!! 

Honestly, I was going to put the Gyrodec on the back-burner, because I need to buy a drum kit ASAP and it's gonna cost a large chunk of money. But, I picked up a new contract this week, so I can afford to get both now.

I'll finally see that beautiful platter, with it's brass weights inderneath, spinning!

Has your Tecnoarm turned up yet?

Yes it should drop straight in as long as its not the latest 3 point fitting as previously mentioned.


Good for you. I see you got your second Exposure power amp too eh?

Do not get me started!! I ordered it through HiFix 4 weeks ago and apparently I've still got two weeks to wait (if I'm lucky) It's annoying really as I've had to do all the chasing to get any info Angry

Well done on the new contract, by the way, finally gonna get those gold weights spinning. Have you been down to Little Common yet?

Cheers, fellas. I've looked at it and it seems i'm all good. There's only three holes in the armplate which match up to the anchor points on the sub-frame of the gyro. Like this, but without the four small holes around the centre:



Alears, I haven't got the second super VIII yet. Still haven't manged to source one. I'm still sniffing about, though!

I'll be getting mine from Analogue seduction. Hopefully I don't have to wait as long as you for it! You must be getting frustrated.


I haven't been to the Little Common store, yet, but i'm in Bexhill on Tuesday so i'll try and stop in between jobs. What's it like for prices?

Re: What armplate do I need?

Bretts. Unless you are getting the tecno on the never never. Ring Ian Harrison HiFi and save yourself a fair amount of moolah. I bang on about this guy now and again but he slaughters everyone price wise.

 

Oh yeah,wanna buy a huge drum kit, cheap. Does this count as trading ?

I've given Ian a call and he's gonna get back to me with a price.


 


Thanks for the offer, matey, but i've already got a kit in mind:

Well I've had about 30 or so from his £1 selection and I've only had one midly duff (not the beer) one, the rest were all very good to excellent. generally he seems cheaper than lock-up rock down the road from you but to be fair he has a bigger choice.

Yeah, it will. Analogue Seduction have knocked £50 off the retail and have it up for £425. Be nice if he beats it. 

What's he like with delivery times, FD?

Getting mine for £419.00 (cheapest I could find), delivery times will probably be similar to mine unless you are lucky enough to find someone with one in stock

Sorry for delay Bretts.

Well if he can get his mitts on what you want he is pretty damn quick. A lot of carts for instance he keeps in stock. I guess that you are aware he only deals in cheques or bank transfer ?. Well unless he has shifted the goal posts lately.

 

Gary at Analogue is a good guy  Bretts but money is money so if Ian comes up trumps i would go with it. Playing 'can you beat so and so's price tennis' is bad form imo*.

 

* always assuming you have already had a personal quote from Gary.

You weren't wrong about Ian, mate. He had one TecnoArm left in stock, in silver (which is what I want). Brand new, delivered £385. He said he could rush it out to me now, for an extra £12, if not it'll be here next weekend. Nice! Right, just the motor and PSU to get and i'm in business!

It is still cheque or bank transfer, with him, BTW.

Thanks for the top tip, me ol' matey!
