Woody Universal Tonearm:

$1900 in the Lacquered Brass finish. The Woody Universal tonearm is intended for all standard mount cartridges. The price includes headshells and headshell adjuster plates in brass, aluminum, and wood. Headshells and headshell adjuster plates in the different densities of brass, aluminum and wood may be used to achieve optimal arm/cartridge resonant frequency (8 Hz) for cartridges of different compliances, masses, and tracking forces. This allows optimal setup for low, mid, and high compliance cartridges.Counterbalance configurations are included to balance any cartridge.  Effective length options: 9 inches (229 mm), 9.45 inches (240 mm), 10 inches (254 mm), 12.2 inches (310 mm), 14 inches (356 mm), and 16 inches (406 mm). The 14 and 16 inch effective length arms are suitable primarily for low and mid compliance cartridges.
 
$2000 USD in the Smokey Silver finish.

Woody SPU Tonearm:

Also will optimally play low and medium compliance standard mount cartridges with a user supplied headshell. The effective length is 12.5 inches.
 
$2100 USD in the Smokey Silver finish.

Shipping and insurance for the Woody SPU Tonearm are billed at the actual cost of shipping and insurance.

VTAF Accessories and Replacement Parts:

Shipping and insurance for most accessories are priced at $8.00 USD for shipment to the U.S., $12.00 USD to Canada, and $15 USD to other destinations worldwide. Worldwide shipping is included in the purchase price of the VTAF Teflon Upgrade. Shipping and insurance for the VTAF armboard for Rega arms on Technics 1200 Series tables are priced at $10 USD to the U.S., $18 USD to Canada, and $22 USD to other destinations worldwide.
 
Counterweight for the Common Man (structural improvement for any Rega tonearm):

$90 USD in Lacquered Brass finish; $108 USD in Smokey Silver Finish.

VTAF Teflon Upgrade:

$36 USD (worldwide shipping included).

VTAF Metal Finish Options:

Standard: Lacquered Brass finish (protective lacquer over engine turned solid brass).

Optional: Smokey Silver finish (protective lacquer over nickel plate over engine turned solid brass) is priced at $36 USD.

Extension Plates:

For VTAF mounting on non-traditional tables with small arm boards: An extension plate may be required to mount the VTAF Guide Assembly. Please inquire about your arm/table combination.

A mini-extension plate is available for $15 USD in Lacquered Brass finish or $20 USD in the Smokey Silver finish. This plate mounts with a single small screw which is hidden by the VTAF Adjuster Wheel.

Large extension plates are available for combinations of table and arm that require them. These extension plates are rotatable to allow the tonearm rest postion to be directed as desired. This is particularly useful for armboards which rotate for adjustment of spindle-to-pivot distance. Large extension plates are priced at $60USD in Lacquered Brass finish, or $78 in Smokey Silver finish.

The Michell Gykrodek arm board does not require an extension plate for Rega arms, modified Rega arms, and the Origin Live Silver or Silver Mk.II, but does require an extension plate for the Silver Mk.III and all other Origin Live tonearms.

VTAF Sliding Mounting Plate:

$48 USD in Lacquered Brass finish; $66 in Smokey Silver finish.

The VTAF Sliding Mounting Plate is designed to work with all versions of the VTAF. Like the SME sliding mounting system, the VTAF Sliding Mounting Plate allows the mounting distance (spindle axis to pivot distance) to be easily changed to allow the correct relationship between cartridge overhang (stylus to spindle axis distance) and the mounting distance. This is a great convenience, particularly with headshells which are not slotted, or cartridges which mount short or long (for example, the Denon DL103 series which mounts short).

The VTAF Sliding Mounting Plate is inspired by the SME sliding mounting system, but is simpler and more trim in appearance than the SME mounting system. When used with the VTAF, the VTAF Sliding Mounting Plate is hidden by the VTAF Adjuster Wheel.
 
VTAF Armboard for Rega Arm on Technics 1200 Series Table:
 
$120 USD in flat black finish. Shipping and insurance: $9 USD to the U.S., $15 USD to Canada, $19 USD to all other destinations worldwide.

Cartridge Shims: $24 for set of five shims in thicknesses of .01, .02, .03, .04, and .05 inches. Free shipping for cartridge shims.

These shims can be used to rotate the cartridge body lower in the rear for us in any situation where the turntable setup does not allow the cartridge body to be sufficiently low in the rear to achieve optimum Vertical Tracking Angle. Each .01 inches of shim thickness has roughly the same effect as lowering the armboard by 1/8 inch.

Wood Cartridge Spacers: $10 USD each. Free shipping for cartridge spacers.

These Cartridge spacers are an alternative to cartridge shims. Standard scrw spacing of 0.5 inches. Finish is flat black. Thickness is 1/4 inch, or as specified by purchaser. The 1/4 inch spacer has the same effect upon VTA as lowering the armboard by 1/4 inch.
