SME 3009 Series 2 Improved

Fitted With SME FD-200 Fluid Damper

Fixed headshell, with knife-edge bearings and fitted with SME fluid damper, this lovely tonearm is in full working order, gleaming like a new pin (see close-up picture), a real credit to its original & very fussy owner. Arm bearings and geometry are all spot-on, full signal continuity from headshell tags to RCA plugs and the dashpot (arm lowering mechanism) operates smooth and slow.

The last two pictures describe the advantages of the fluid damper.

Of the fixed head-shell 3009 SME say:- "The fixed head-shell is the purer design with the lowest possible mass - only 5.5 grams…. offering a significant improvement in trackability and all round definition plus cleaner bass and low sensitivity to external shock and feedback”

This comes fitted with the SME FD-200 fluid damper (with a syringe of damping fluid) and is complete with original user manual, signal cable, 4 x bed-plate fixing screws, finger-lift and a set of cartridge mounting nuts & bolts. It also comes with exact scale copies of the mounting template and alignment protractor.
