Our New Website

We’ve been diligently working on our new shop. The old site was fine, but with upcoming PayPal and credit card changes, it was crucial to update it. Today, I’ve been busy taking photos of my Loricraft Garrard 501 turntable for a striking front-page feature. I believe the photo turned out well; it’s truly a beautiful piece. Honestly, I feel fortunate to own such a turntable, and I’m skeptical that it will ever be produced again. Let’s see what the future holds with SME as the new owners of Garrard.

Sorbothane Balls

Garrard 301 Turntable Mat Update

Today, we collected nine Garrard 301 turntable mats from my supplier, who had reserved them for an emergency—and rightly so. I’ve requested a new batch to be manufactured, and he’s already working on it. Here’s hoping we’ll have them by January.
