SME 3012 Series 2

12 Inch Tonearm – With Fluid Damper

With metal knife-edge bearings, this beautiful 12” SME is in full working order and really excellent physical condition - gleaming like a new pin (see close-up pictures). You will also see that it’s fitted with the SME FD200 fluid damper. The damping fluid has obviously been removed for transport but included is a syringe containing the correct fluid to re-fill the trough before use. The benefits of the fluid damper are explained in the last 3 pictures

The bearings and arm geometry are all fine, full signal continuity from head-shell tags to RCA plugs and the dash-pot lowering mechanism operates smooth and slow.

This comes with 4 x bed-plate fixing screws, a set of cartridge mounting nuts & bolts, original SME signal cable, SME head-shell with gold wire tags and original & unused SME cartridge seating compound. It also comes with a print-out copy of the original user manual.
