Default WTT: I have TB 4" and Tympany 1" for TT cartridge?

Hi!

Would anyone be interested in a trade? My kids' new kitten decided to drag my tonearm across the platter and rip my stylus out! Anyway I have to replace the cartridge and I figured I'd try this before I ran out and bought a new one. No, I'm not looking for some top end cartridge, just something decent.

I'll trade a pair of these

and a pair of these


the tweets are new bulk and the mids are nice - but appear to have been mounted. The actual part # is W4-1052SA. No factory packaging on any.

Grados need not apply, I have a rega. Lemme know if it works for you!

Any plans that used these speakers? I've got a couple of extra mm carts around here that I'd trade, including a Sumiko Oyster that's got a grand total of 1 hour on it.

Geez I know of no plans...

I would imagine there would be good support here on the mid - it's pretty popular and has a solid following. The tweet seems a good match too, slightly more sensitive. Both are '4 ohm' drivers and both don't affect my CRT screen. I'd use them but I'm into much bigger stuff right now....

My Rega doesn't mind Grados (and when i was selling Regas new, a Grado was a pretty standard install) ... i'll see if i have anything else.

I sold an awful lot of NAD 3020/7020, Rega 2/Grace 707/Grado + speakers of your choice (Advents, Bostons, LS3/5A, KEF... ) and it was never a problem.

You should check for wiring problems.

I've 'run the gamut'!

I even removed the arm and used it as a wand. The hum is a result of proximity to the motor. Definitely radiated. Maybe the motor has an issue ... dunno?

The tt has a Linn Basik plus mounted.

The cartridge that I just 'broke' was a grado black. In terms of grado I won't go higher than the blue (pricewise and risk) and the blue is just a better black. I'd certainly like to try something else....

Same as mine... i'd be using one of my black grados (probably an F1+ if someone hadn't gifted me a Garrott P77 (swaps/trade/bribes have kept the table to $100 expenditure so far and i'd be able to recoup that if i could find the Jelso that was originally on it.

At some point i'm going to rebuild it to accomodate 2 arms (have a nice S-arm off a high faluting Technics TT) attachment is now (i do need to dust it)

I think you might have to change your VTA to accommodate that LP.

sort of a coincidence on the arms tho..
