Pioneer PL-51 from 1974

Post by riveroaks2009 » 17 Mar 2012 13:09

I am in search of an appropriate strobe light to fine tune my PL-51 turntable's speed. I can tune it fairly close by "ear" but would like to try the strobe method. Does anyone know where to find such a light? Thanks

An LED night light from a dollar store works well. If you don't have a strobe pattern, there are some under "Tools" at the top.

Cheers,

I know this is an old thread but is it safe to say I need a light that flashes 60 times per second?

Yes.
Cheap LED strips might be a good bet. If you see a broken line when you sweep your eyes past, it should be good.
