Garrard SP 25

Description

The Garrard SP25 is a four speed single record playing unit incorporating an improved tubular pickup arm with a resiliently mounted counterbalance weight and a calibrated dial to set stylus force easily.

It is elegantly styled, and has many features associated with more costly equipment, such as cueing device to lower and raise the pickup gently, a patented pickup arm bias compensator and a lightweight plug-in pickup shell which will accommodate a wide range of cartridges.

In addition the SP25 has a large, loaded turntable plater driven by a magnetically screened resiliently mounted Laboratory series motor, through a retractable rubber idler wheel.

The pickup returns to it's rest automatically after playing a record and unit switches off.

SP 25

Recently I have acquired what seems to be a Garrard SP 25 TT mk II on the Brussels Flea Market. It works but apparently needs a new idler wheel as it rumbles a lot. Does anyone know where these are available ?
Thank you for any info.
