Thanks! I think the tonearm tube, and the base also looks a lot like this Ortofon.. guess someone used parts of this for a DIY project. The lift and the rest are defiantly the same!

Correct, I paid a premium for a mint version myself.

I need help identifying this tonearm. I’m pretty sure it’s a Pioneer, but could use help narrowing it down.

It does look like a Pioneer, but most of them had the lateral weight. PL 10, perhaps?

Does anybody know what kind of tonearm this is? No brand, no number, nothing.

I think, it seems to be a Bluenote Borromeo tonearm.

Hi all,
New to the site. Looking for some help identifying this tone arm and any recommendations on a head shell/stylus combo to complete this otherwise functioning mid modern turntable. Thanks.

Hello and welcome to vinylengine.

Your tonearm looks like the ortofon RS-212.

https://www.ortofon.com/media/15229/ort ... s_212.jpeg

For the missing headshell: If you want to keep it original, you could search for an ortofon SPU type headshell, or - as they can be expensive - the headshell of an ortofon AS-212 would be also suitable, in my opinion.
Otherwise, every other SME-type headshell should fit

Regards.

Hi can anyone tell me exactly which tone arm this is? I got told it’s an Audio Technica 1503? And are there any reviews out there ?
