The Aspects of Low-Inertia Tone-Arm Design

The desire for low-inertia tone arms accompanied the development of high-compliance pickups. Recent investigations have demonstrated further advantages of such tone arms. A constructive example is analyzed to demonstrate the possibility of conceiving a conventional tone arm in which a resonance frequency of approximately 10 Hz is ensured with modern pickups. The requirements for specific elements of this tone arm are discussed. The concluding remarks treat the vibrational factors to be considered in connection with low-inertia tone arms.
