Feet for SL 1200 mk 2

Post by Jorlsafar » 01 Oct 2019 21:03

Hola!

I have a T12 that's footless. The original S/H and new feet are scarce and expensive. What shall I look for when it comes to as a cheaper alternative, Vibrapods? Or other sorbothane feet? What characteristics/specs shall I look for? Is there room for improvement over the stock feet? What do you use?

All the best/J

The MK7 feet are available here for example but unfortunately they are twice the price the original feet were before they were discontinued:

The Isonoe feet are a popular alternative and considered by many to be an upgrade over the originals:

Thanks chiz! Perhaps I'll go with Isonoe feet, although they're a bit expensive.

Sorbothane hemispheres are a cheaper option that I have seen some people use but not tried myself:

I recommend the sorbothane. Tried the Isonoe's and they robbed the t/t of it's 'drive', on my platform anyway.

Went back to the sorbo.

Thanks - sorry for neglecting the thd, but I hadn't had time for my decks. Will order Sorbothane feet.

Lazycat - what was the denomination of the sorbothane feet you liked? Is it the ones sold by Kabusa?
