Just spotted a central station TT mat in the classifieds, bought back memories.

Here's one I just dug out of the cupboard!

Show us what you've got!!!

I come across slipmats  now and then amongst record collections I purchase. Although I own a couple of SL 1200 , I do not have a use for them. This one is used to stop the zip on Rolling Stones ,Sticky Fingers damaging the cover of the record in front of it, So afraid I am unable to tell you any thing about it.

no clever wording, but thought they looked striking when I ordered them last year.  unfortunately couldn't use them as they were not properly finished to be smooth on the surface.

Hi Andy,

 

TBH I’m not sure. It’s about 1mm thick and has a flexible structure. 
 

I have taken a close up photo.

I have some of the discs that are placed under my TT and components, but as you can see they also do a platter mat.

I cannot say that thediscs made any difference, but I got them for cheap as an experiment.

The mat does make a difference. I was pleasantly surprised.

Much like the Les Davis mat, my Soundeck Mat uses CLD (constrained layer damping). Not using it atm, it’s a little heavy.

Blue Horizon promat.

Composite of rubber, cork and leather.

I'm happy with the difference it made.

The Les Davis mat is very light.

It’s a bit like the old reversible jackets you can flip it over for a plain silver finish.
