Garrard 401 Flush strobe, RC Shindo style plinth & NWA upgraded bearing

Recommended Posts

For sale ..my lovely Garrard 401 (repainted in hammertone grey),
Upgraded NWA Bearing/spindle and 2 x Arm Russ Collinson Sapele wood plinth.


So after lots of deliberation...
I maybe looking to go off on another direction.
So possibly moving this beauty on.

My early Flush Strobe Garrard 401 runs silent and has been serviced last year.
Motor total stripped down, relubrication, all linkage re-grease.
It was stripped and repainted last year by Ray Clarke of 'Classic Turntable Co.'
in beautiful Grey Hammertone paint. The original Garrard 401 mat is in great condition.

It will come with the hugely over engineered upgraded N.W.A Bearing/Spindle. 
This brought a very noticeable new dynamic presentation and runs silent. The tolerance on this bearing is incredible. Well worth the upgrade and now unobtainable. This was a simple drop in replacement so can be swapped in and out with the the original Garrard Bearing spindle assembly, which will also be supplied. 

The Turntable is fitted into a lovely ‘Shindo style’ Layers of Beauty, (Russ Collinson)
2 arm plinth.

The plinth is beautiful Sapele Wood veneer on layered birch ply core. 
The plinth is designed so the turntable sits flush level with the plinth top. Clean.
It will be sold with blank matching armboards for both the 9’’ and the 12’’ cut outs, x 2 of each Plus the 2 which are currently on duty. (cut for SME 12’’ & audio-technica ATP-12T arms)

It has an IEC plug socket so you can use a posh power cable if that floats your boat.
The plinth is 570 mm long x 450mm. Adjustable levelling feet included.

Obviously very heavy indeed.

There is a dust cover which is the kind that totally covers the whole plinth
which I actually may keep, but if I don’t will be included Free in the sale bundle.

Any demo very welcome.
The Turntable is simply stunning to hear.

At this stage I won’t split (but I may later if the plinth is to be sold first!)
More picture will be added of NWA bearing and blank arm boards.

£1350 for The package.Which is what it owes me

Tonearms are NOT included!

I believe interest checks aren’t accepted here.  It’s a good post that maybe can go in the 2 channel section?

Nopiano is correct - interest checks are not permitted in the classifieds. You have a choice - either convert to a for sale ad or we can move it to 2 channel. Let us know which.
