Tri-Planar Tonearms Now Available

Tri-Planar, founded by Herb Papier who has built tonearms since 1967, emerged commercially at CES in 1981. Now more than 30 years later their current tonearm range is available in Australia.

Enjoying great success with his tonearm designs, to this day they are considered one of the world's best. Sadly, Papier passed away in 2003 at the age of 83, but not before passing on his knowledge, and company over to his hand-picked successor, Tri Mai, of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

There are three models in the Tri-Planar range today.
