Mycro Mat / Clamp

Post by Cossack » 05 Dec 2017 14:05

Hi all

I've just bought a Mycro in great condition and really pleased with it.

It came with a dark green felt / wool (?) mat a few mm thick.

I have read that the clamp is "mandatory" but the thickness of the mat does not leave enough spindle showing. I am assuming therefore that the mat is an "after market" addition and that the deck was intended to be used without a mat?

This being the case and given that I don't really like the mat would I be better off either buying a clamp or a new (eg Origin Live?) mat?

With the mat in place it looks like the VTA is about bang on and not sure the RB250 will allow adjustment.

Obviously I want the best for my Michell but don't want to enter a world of pain / expenditure.

Any advice, as ever, gratefully received..

A Mycro has a black composite platter and you should put the record directly onto that - no mat.

The clamp certainly brings out the best in the setup. I have a spare one; if you're interested let me know.

Great purchase, I hope you enjoy it!
