Ortofon Hi-Fi Stylus Pressure Gauge - Tonearm balance tool
Getting the balance right on your tonearm can make a world of difference to how your music sounds and how long your records last. It’s a fiddly process, and most of the time it gets lumped in the Too Hard basket.
This little pressure gauge is an easy way to make sure your tonearm is balanced properly, so your cartridge is getting enough pressure to keep it firmly in the groove without pushing down too hard on your records. Get the balance right, and you’ll find your records sound more lively and detailed, with less distortion or skipping.
Make sure you check the tracking force of your cartridge to be sure you’re using this pressure gauge properly.
