Garrard 401

Transcription turntable

In, full & perfect working order and complete with original user manual, mounting nuts, bolts & washers, along with a full size copy of the original mounting template, here is a nice example of the classic Garrard 401 transcription turntable - flush strobe with twin spark suppressor.

The motor runs smooth & whisper quiet, the bearing is fine and freshly lubricated, the idler is excellent, all three speeds are accurate and stable, pitch control works as it should and all linkages are nice and smooth and in gleaming condition. On 33 RPM this reaches stable speed in less than half a revolution.

The close-up pictures show physical condition but what they don’t show is the faintest outline of a dust-bug. Very feint and only really visible if you look real close.

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 we can carry this out prior to shipping. A replacement 60 cycles motor pulley & collar will cost an additional £30.

This will be supplied to its new owner with original user manual, original fixing nuts, bolts, washers & circlips - along with a full size copy of the mounting template.
