Default What is this tonearm?

Hi All,

Does anyone have any info about this tonearm?
How is Bakelite as a material for an arm tube?

Thanks
IK

It is not suitable for current cartridges. VTF probably starts from 10g and certainly no antiskate. But great value for $6 You can cary it in the car at night and feel safe.

thanks analog_sa - I'll try to remember it on moonless nights...

Actualy- there is a "pocket" in back where you can fill it with lead, sand or whatever and balance the arm to any weight. it also has a very nice looking unipivot bearing...I could add antiskate weight or magnet

I would like to know its effective mass and length if any one knows.

cheers

Probably an ACOS.

Bakelite has a very pleasing tonal quality. For tracking a piezo cart at 5 grams it would be alright, but not high fidelity. Mark
