  3. I have just turned a corner with my mental health, mine was cancer related. I never thought I'd need support, but I did and I really appreciate the help I'm now getting. Please talk to someone asap. There will be support out there for you. The good thing is you have told us- that is a huge thing to do and probably way out of your comfort zone. Do small achievable things that you can manage hour by hour if necessary. Post back here, let us know
  4. Hi Some advice please. I've located a used trumpet part I've been looking for - for a long time! The chap wants $125 for it which is an absolute bargain + shipping Questions in my head before I say yes Best way to pay Best way for him to ship to UK- reliable firms suggestions please Will I be subject to import duty? (not a problem, but how does it all happen?) Or shall I walk away as there are too many risks since brexit? Thanks Nigel

  10. Thanks for all contributions so far, really looking forward to get confident in doing these dark arts! Azimuth- if it is out of adjustment do you tighten/loosen one of the cartridge bolts slightly or have I got the wrong end of the stick? Thanks
  11. Never done this before so need to get proper kit together, so much choice out there and some very expensive gear. Suggestions please for a first timer (nothing rude) Thanks

  16. Fair point, all our TTs have been used models, and not far up the makers model ladder........£2k all in, maybe. Don't think the Raven has a dustcover iirc.
  17. I have had a Michell mycro and Tecnoarm, Nottingham Analogue Spacedeck and Hyperspace with Tecnoarm, wave mechanic, Dynav 20X2 They’ve all been good in their own way. I’m missing the NA sound but not the bulkiness of the decks, and the dusting. The engineering of Michell and NA is excellent. I’ve currently got a Funk Firm LSD with a FF FX5 arm, MCRU linear PSU, Dynav 20X2 – sounds very good. The dusting is minimal as it has a dust cover Here’s the thing, now I’ve got loads of time on my hands recovering from my illness and retirement. I am playing a lot of vinyl daily, more than ever really. So with time on my hands – · I thought I could a buy vintage/ older TT and restore it. I had to sell my classic car so a good old tinker is therapeutic ( oh err missus). I’m going off this given prices on certain bays of plenty · Or commit to a newer TT and tonearm and learn the dark arts of cartridge fitting (never done one, always dealer) filling my drawers with cartridges (!?) and phono stage rolling and listen to more vinyl. But what turntable with a dustcover? So my fellow wammers, Mrs trumpetman and myself need your guidance and assistance here. Thanks
  18. Glorious Black record box (Yes silly name of manufacturer) In good condition Still a current product Looks like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000NB0722 This must be collection only - social distance rules will apply as I'm still on the vunerable list Donation of £5 to MacMillan Cancer Support, their support for all cancer patients, including me, is brilliant.
