Jep, quite heavy.. the TT and the stone platform are both a little over 15 kilos. Like in the Scheu original there is lead inside the round collar. Only buying lead pebbles would have been quite expensive so I melt down some car/truck tire weights for it. It looked kind of ugly though by its self so I pored some coffee to the sides.

The stone platform is actually a gravestone (not a used one though ) Wasn't quite first class so I got it cheap. Also the pillars around the motor are from the same stone worker. They are cutouts of completed gravestones.

The platter, bearing and motor are from Scheu Analog / the arm is of coarse a Schröder copy.

IZHAKKATZ, sounds quite good..

In many respects it beats my CDP, a 2k euro player... the TT, cart and also phone pre are still running in - so we'll see.

Also, since I have very little experiance with proper TT:s I'll probably buy a Scheu classic tonearm for some kind of reference. Also I'm thinking of building the Poul Ladegaard's Air Bearing Tangential Tonearm to see if it's a good one.

Another picture too..

Hi,

nice work with the tt . About the tonearm... is it a clone, or just you used Scheu for inspiration? I mean did you tried to reproduce their magnet bearing? If yes, I'm intersted how it sound, 'cause I'm planing one

That must sound dead

Looks as a very nice turntable, congrats!
