Yes, the SME IV is a good match for the Michell Gyro SE.

You will need an arm board to mount the SME IV, Michell stocks these.

 

BTW, bargain price for an excellent tonearm.

Hi there

 

Yes...good match with the Michell. You need an armboard like @arthur63 said. Something like this:

Alternatively, you may be able to get a collet (adapter) that converts your armboard to fit an SME. As the gentleman above said, both being British, Michell+SME was a fairly common combination.

The SME IV looks as though it was designed for the Gyro SE

Here's a pic of mine.

Are there any organs you'd trade this for? I have spare: 1 Kidney, portion of liver, possibly 1 arm or leg.

I had the exact same combination.. they were great together.. unfortunately a SME10 came my way. I transferred the SME IV arm onto the 10.. just couldn’t keep the gyrodec.. Pity.
Great price. I just need another arm.
