Free Cartridge Protractor And Speed Discs!

Free Cartridge Protractor And Speed Discs!
There's no place like home. Home is where my turntable is and everyone should have a two point protractor and speed strobe discs. For the cartridge alignment tool, the trick is to have the cartridge mounted so that the needle aligns perfectly on BOTH dots without moving the protractor. What you may need to do is mount the cartridge a bit loose and slightly move it forward or back and see how it aligns on both points. You know you have it perfect when both points are perfect without moving the protractor. It takes time and patience to get it just right, but the results are worth it! As an added bonus for you, Enjoy the Music.com also offers a free Excel file two page spreadsheet with one page for Löfgren "A" alignment and one page for Löfgren "B" alignment, plus you can calculate your own custom alignment points too!
