Modified Technics Arm. It certainly looks the part, all it needs is a single length of Cardas wire from headshell to Phono stage and its ready to try out. The mass of the arm/headshell worked out well at 22g. The Technics arm/headshell weighs 24g, so not much difference. The combination of Carbon/Aluminium tube is much better than carbon on its own which would have come in at 13g including headshell. Where the difference lies is in the distribution of the mass. The Technics is 24g but 16g is hung off the end in the form of headshell and connector. The tube itself weighs only 8g. With this modification the mass is more evenly distributed along the length, 5g for the headshell, 17g for the tube.
