After reading Tejinder article I realized you can't get better than the original Beogram 2202 toneram when using its cartridge , but i wanted to use this tonearm externaly with some Duals and PE turntables so i had to have at least 12 inch for that matter.I have an etremey light tonearm attached directly to the cartridge though and if the results won't be good enough, cutting a toneram from 12 to whatever length might accomodate a better performance is much easier than making it longer On the other hand i'm using a very high quality elastic and esily replaceable adhesive between cartridge and tonearm and i hope that will solve a lot of the possible problems except the vertical behavior of the tonearm effective mass .Still didn't have a try, but it took me 3 weeks only to make the pure horror lift system work....

It's a 0.3mm elastic jelly like but firmer adhesive which will damp any low resonance decoupling the cart from the arm.Altough the usual way is to use some brass to damp the cartridge trough weight , that's a commercial approach aimed at giving long time reliable use, although sacrificing effective weight performance, while this is my tonearm and i can replace that damping any time in the future .
