Garrard 301

Owner: Neil Hollow

Neils comments:

I designed and made the plinth from 18mm Birch plywood in five laminations.  Each lamination has a different cutout to suit the entrails of the Garrard 301.  The SME 309 arm is mounted directly to the plinth for rigidity.  The arm is located in a position to minimize the size of the plinth thus allowing it to be symmetrical.  The plinth is sanded, stained and varnished.  An Ortofon MC10 Supreme cartridge completes the setup. 

I have designed and supplied several bespoke plinths to Garrard fans around the world.  I try to specialize in one-off designs for 9 inch, 12 inch or multiple arms.
