My deck will be different to the one you tested the clamp on so is there any guarantee of improvement?
While it’s a valid concern, a record clamp primarily contacts the record, not the deck. Although the deck influences record vibrations, exerting control from the top side of the record yields different results. To illustrate, we conducted tests using the clamp:
- Solid platters
- Platters topped with felt mats
- Suspended decks
- Non suspended decks
In all instances, the record weight yielded the same improvements as previously mentioned.
This record weight is exceptionally lightweight, around 70 grams, ensuring it won’t disrupt suspended turntables.
