Christopher Thornton at Artisan Fidelity has just finished fitting all the components to the plinth he created for the Garrard Project 2015, and sent me some photos of it to drool over – it’s a beauty! (you can click on each of the photos for a larger view)
That’s Christopher’s Macassar Ebony plinth with Stillpoints Ultra isolation feet, the Classic 301 with a brass platter, mounted with two of Thomas Schick’s tonearms, one for mono with an Ortofon SPU Mono CG 25 Di MkII, and the other for stereo with an Ortofon SPU Classic GM MKII.
Check out that gorgeous shot of the Ortofon cartridge!
I love the contrast of the brass platter and Schick tonearms with the gorgeous Macassar Ebony of Christopher’s plinth.
Here’s a closer look at the rear Schick tonearm.
Here’s a closeup of the right Schick tonearm.
Here’s the Schick tonearm even closer.
Here’s a right angle view of the entire ‘table.
Here’s a closeup of the Classic 301 with the brass platter. I love the contrast of the Hammertone finish with the brass platter.
Here’s some rear views. It’s gorgeous from every angle!
Here’s another closeup of the Schick tonearm.
Another closeup from the top.
Christopher’s doing the last little bit of fine tuning now, and it’ll all be heading my way soon. I can’t wait to hear it!
Many thanks to Christopher for sending the gorgeous photos, I’m drooling!
Much more to come!
