AIRTANGENT 10B PRECISION TONEARM SPECIAL BUILD WITH PURE GOLD WIRE.

This is the rarest Airtangent Tonearm to be built with the purest sound ever this tonearm comes in its original metal flight case and is simply stunning. The tonearm was built as a custom unit with pure gold wire this was specially produced for this purpose and is a total one off artisan unit. The tonearm comes with 220/240v air tangent air compressor and filter station all comes with air pressure gauge this is a truly great opportunity to purchase a very rare tonearm and all complete with manual and accessories. The high pressure models are vastly superior to the low pressure examples such as the 2002 and 1b.1c.1d and 2b and they have a greater sense of scale and deeper bass response. The gold version adds a sense of detail and delicacy that we have never heard from a tonearm. We have installed these units on many turntables over the years and can assist with this.
