VPI RELEASES NEW FATBOY TONEARM RANGE

Legacy US turntable brand VPI Industries has released its new JMW-Fatboy tonearm range at this week's Axpona show in North America.

Available in two bearing configurations, the Fatboy range includes cardanic/gimbal and unipivot models, with the 12-inch length version available first. 10-inch and 9-inch models will follow.

VPI says that while the Fatboy tonearm range is ideally suited to VPI turntables, they can be used with any brand.

Mat Weisfeld, President of VPI Industries, said:

The Fatboy adds a new level adjustment to the VPI type tonearm. On the unipivot flavour, you can adjust azimuth using the the side arm tube setscrews, the adjustable side weights, or the included dual pivot.

By having the combination of a 3D printed tube with the fine machined back stock, it creates the perfect balance of precision and balance for your tonearm. The fine adjustable counterweight makes cartridge set-up easier than ever.

The 12-inch version will be available soon selling for US$4,000. Local pricing and availability have not yet been confirmed.
