Jelco TS-550S 9″ Static-Balance Tonearm with removable headshell

Categories: ,


This S-shaped device is essentially the classic and sought after Jelco SA-750 reborn, offering high-quality bearings and construction together with a detachable headshell and optional oil damping, all wrapped up in a seriously lovely black and chrome finish.

In most parts of the world detachable headshell arms are considered to be very good, this one certainly is. You could install a £2,000 cartridge on it without any problems or for the die-hard enthusiast have a different cartridge on a selection of headshells.

Supplied without a tonearm cable. All other fitting accessories and templates are included. Designed and manufactured in Japan.
