Counterweight upgrade for Rega based arms.
« on: April 24, 2016, 07:13:50 PM »
Available again, counterweights and stubs to upgrade your Rega based arm. An instant non intrusive upgrade to RB250/251/202/300/301/303 and derivatives.
Precision made out of 316 non magnetic stainless steel.

All items available individually and compatible with the standard steel stub and weights. 

The stub is a 3 part system with an insert that fits the arm, a bolt then tensions the stub on to the arm tube.

The round counterweight with set screw on mounted to the 3 part stub secures the heaviest moving mass of the arm is fitted tightly and dramatically reduces resonance which result in more information being  retrieved from the grooves. 
Massive improvement over the plastic stub and spring loaded weight on the RB202/250/251 and derivatives. 

The off set counterweight additionally brings the mass closer to stylus level. 
It also allows higher setting of the arm for vta adjustment on tall cartridges so the weight does not crash with the lid.

Combination of solid stub and a similar offset counterweight elevated the performance of my RB250 to a level of RB300 with solid stub and tungsten counterweight.
