Actually I had already planned to buy a new tonearm, but then I remembered again the website of Mr. Graetke. I was a bit sceptical, but after the first phone call my doubts were gone. Very competent, friendly and fair, I felt I was in good hands there. Now the tonearm has been tuned, remounted and the tonearm cable has been installed and it only remains to say: great cinema, my expectations have been exceeded by far! It is not necessary to go into detail at this point, because the tonearm is now better in all details. Price/performance: Mr. Graetke’s work and the resulting sound are worth every cent. I can only recommend every doubter to contact Mr. Graetke and let his knowledge and craftsmanship flow into his own tone arm.
Product(s): Service für SME 3009 Series 2 improved, Bronze-Schneidenlager Mk3, Pure Silver Hair Wire
These nice tonearm came in dusty and dirty condition on my bench. The balance weight was lost. I serviced these tonearm, include a new wiring with Pure Silver hair Wire and made a copy of the original balance weight. The result sounds and looks pretty nice.
