Default Help me identify tonearm maker please.

Does anyone recognize this tonearm? I think it's a Jelco but I'm not sure.

Revolver Rebel. I'm rather ignorant about TTs but I thought it would be a good starting point. I was thinking of trying a Denon DL-110 with this table because of all the good reviews and the reasonable price. Thoughts? Will a standard MM phono stage give me enough gain with only a 1.6mV output from the cartridge? Any suggestions on phono stages at around the $150 price point.

Or maybe a Ortofon MC-1 Turbo?

Hi,
It looks like a derivative of the old Mission 774 tone arm (circa late 80's)
Regards.

Found what appears to be the same arm on a Mission 775LC. There are also some Revolver pics in the VE gallery with the same arm but no comments.

All of those arms are Japanese Jelcos, made as OEM arms for various manufacturers hence the family resemblance.

Also came stock on some later AR's, the Sonographe, also sold as Graham Robin and Audioquest. Apparently the label deteremines how much someone is willing to pay for it.
