Garrard 440M


The classic, very modestly priced 440M represents what Garrard considers the minimum requirements for genuine high fidelity reproduction.

It has a new low mass tonearm with adjustable anti-skating control, a 4-pole motor, and overhead stabiliser arm for the record stack and a viscous damped cue control.

The magnetic cartridge is a Pickering V15-ATE-4, factory fitted, installed and balanced.

The base and dust cover are of the same design as in the 770M.

The 440M is also available with ceramic cartridge as the 440C, or without base and lid as the 440.
