Garrard 401

Looks to be unused

As you can see from the pictures, this was a gift from Harrods to one of their employees marking 25 years of service.

All the evidence points to this having never been used. There was no mains cable connected, the underside and linkages are gleaming like a new pin, No marks around the On/Off, Pitch Control or Speed Selector switches, the brake and felt washer look pretty-much perfect and the mat and metal centre also look perfect.

We obviously did connect this up to the mains for testing. The motor runs smooth & whisper quiet, the bearing is fine, the idler is excellent, all three speeds are accurate and stable. On 33 RPM this reaches stable speed in around half a revolution.

This came in just on its own, with no manual or fixing nuts/bolts. However, we will include a full size copy of the original mounting template and we also have a copy of the user manual as a PDF on our computer which we will be happy to email to the new owner on request.

The motor clamp is present and will be used for safe shipping.

This is currently operating on 220 - 250 volts / 50 cycles. Conversion to 110 - 125 volts is really simple, but 60 cycles operation will require a replacement motor pulley.

If requested we can convert this to 110 - 125 volts prior to shipping (free of charge). If conversion to 60 cycles is required then a replacement 60 cycles motor will cost an additional £20

£725 (GBP)
