Record Player/Turntable Kanoot from Moth Group - Motor Pulley for 50 Hz needed
The record player "Alamo" from Moth is a good known record player (nearly identical to Rega Planar and NAD's 533.
But I have an other model from Moth. Typ: "Kanoot" Unfortunately there isn't similar type from other companies.
The actually not failured device has on problem: the motor pulley's sizes (for belt) is made for the british marked (mains frequency 60 Hz instead 50 Hz).
Therefore in Germany the RPM value isn't right.
Where I get such motor pulley for 50 Hz (to replace the exist 60 Hz version)?
The old address from Moth is follow:
Tel: 01234 741152
10, Dane Lane, Wilstead, Bedford, Bedfordshire MK45 3HT
and the related URLs here with some history of the Moth Group:
in the UK the mains frequency is 50 Hz, so a standard UK pulley would be fine and i suspect easier to get hold of.
there are as an alternative a DC motor conversion kit that may fit, and be of interest
A. diameters: both from the mains frequency and the outside diameter (belt circulation aera) for the turntable platter
B: groove wide: both from the kind of belt (round/square/flat) and the material diameter
What is a standard UK pulley for you ??
Thank you for your explanation.
If I realize an alternative with DC motor conversion kit I must destroy the presently motor (no screw mounted pulley) and must press this pulley to the new DC motor.
If I get a 50 Hz pulley (the present pulley is definitely for 60Hz - speed control led me note this to slow speed) I would fix resp. clamp and stick on top of the old pulley - the easiest solution.
BTW: In post #1 I have written
"the motor pulley's sizes (for belt) is made for the british marked (mains frequency 60 Hz instead 50 Hz)."
but I mean
"the motor pulley's sizes (for belt) is made for the United States marked (mains frequency 60 Hz instead 50 Hz)."
look here, im sure they have the pulley already fitted
sorry heres the link Origin Live | Fitting Record Deck Motors To Specific Turntables
Same as Rega - see Rega notes
This isn't right. Moth have produced three different models. Only concerning the model "Alamo" the claim "Same as Rega" is right.
But here we talk about an other model, namely "Kanoot" and not "Alamo".
Unknown record player from "Moth Group"
Who knows the model naming of the turntable from the attachment?
This model was above the "ALAMO" and "KANOOTH"
Original Version: 'The Oak' turntable
Now I have find more information: about
The Oak Turntable
I read follow by post #8:
'The Oak' turntable dates from 1983 and was designed by Steve Williams (who also worked at Guildford Hi-Fi)and John Young from Oak Audio Ltd,it was eventually distributed through Mike Harris of Moth Marketing.
And additional URLs:
Review | Moth Marketing, 47 Armstrong Close, Wilstead, Bedford have modified their Oak turntable since its launch in January 1983. It is now in a black, grey and red styling with a multi-layer Medite fibreboard plinth supporting the main bearing, ton.
Acoustic Imagery Pre Amp/D400M (3594/2394 each) - Pre/power amplifiers
Mike Harris (email@example.com) send me a reply to my question about the model naming:
"That is a Moth Alamo, the later 'Split plinth' version complete with an OEM
Rega 300 tonearm"
He say's additional, that there are no service manual available, because this product is older than ten years.
Perhaps one of the members can post a service manual of this record player model.
