Arm kit II

A high-end tonearm in a DIY packag
Not a conversion but a built-from-scratch new arm.
The arm kit has the design features and components of our finished arms, including the ceramic bearings and contrained-layer counterweight in a DIY package.

Kit II builds an arm identical to the latest Classic II arm and features a new Rega 303/330 arm tube casting and arm lift, Audiomods alloy arm rest, stainless steel vta lock and variable mass counterweight.

Included in the kit are all the parts needed to complete the arm and all that is needed is to add wiring. There is a wide choice of wiring options, from the kits sold for RB series arms or your own solution from any quality tonearm wire. The kits include a "wiring accessory pack" with base and headhsell grommets, clear and coloured heatshrink, solder and guide wires to help with diy wiring.

To build the kit you will need access to some basic power tools for finishing and drilling the bare arm tube, simple hand toools for assembly and some practice with soldering the fine signal wires.

The kit comes with complete build and setup instructions and a drilling template. Each kit is built to order with a delivery time of 3-4 weeks.
