View Full Version : how to pivot the tonearm base

I am currently using a technics 1200 mk2

Basically what I am trying to say is I would like to move the tone arm base. The base is right above the height adjustment. When both of my turntables tonearms are resting on the tonearm rest, one cartridge is closer to the platter than the other.

If I were to line up the needles with the logo "Technics Quarts Direct drive turntable system SL-1200 mk2", the needle for the first turntable would line up with the "C" in Technics, and the needle for the second turntable would line up with the "Q" in Quarts.

Anybody have suggestions? The uneven position of the tonearm is bothering me. Thanks

Sounds like one of your tonearms might be bent. Can you take a couple of pictures?

Not sure if thats the problem. I checked the tone arms and they seem to be okay. No noticeable bends, no marks, etc. I just got to find a way to pivot the tonearm base so it moves closer to the pitch fader or closer to the platter.
