Hi, Does anyone know where I can get a drive belt for a Royce Spectrum turntable?

Thanks

What type of belt is it - flat or round?
If it's round you could make one to fit with a length of o-ring rubber, with the ends carefully cut and glued together.

Just measure around the pulleys if you don't already have a belt,if you do measure the old belt for length,width and thickness and then go to one of the many online retailers for the same.

thanks for the response. unfortunately the turntable is a recent second hand purchase and is missing the belt (among other things) if I can't find out what belt it is I will have to measure and go down the trial and error route.

Just subtract <5% from your measurement.
