Measuring Tracking Force

Post by Doug Burskey on Fri Apr 05, 2013 10:42 pm

I found out a small digital jewelers scale works well to measure phono cartridge tracking weight or force.Usually in grams.Just worked on a Califone that the tracking was set to low.Someone taped a penny to the end of the tone arm in an atempt to fix the skipping problem even with a new stylus/cartridge.

I did not know that! Thanks for the nugget of knowledge!
I wonder how much pressure a Edison diamond disc has? those arms are heavy!
