Garrard 30


The Garrard model 30 is a compact high performance automatic and manual unit, supplied with an excellent, pre-installed flip-over ceramic cartridge with diamond stylus, to provide excellent record reproduction in budget music systems.

Features include an oversized weighted turntable with decorative mat and tubular aluminium tonearm.

Automatic operation is particularly versatile, permitting records to be intermixed.

Two interchangeable spindles and unitized control panel facilitate record handling for single play and automatic operation.

Stylus pressure adjustment is simple and accessible, and the trip mechanism is super-sensitive, made of Dupont Delrin to minimize friction. This permits excellent tracking, and prolongs record life.

The Model 30 is an automatic turntable of superior quality at modest price - designed to deliver reliable, excellent performance and to satisfy both the critical listener and Garrard's own standards of quality.


Type: automatic record changer

Speeds: 16, 33, 45 and 78rpm
