Garrad 301 with new flywheel, belt-driven!!!

Here is something cool, folks... a French artisan gave to the mighty Garrad 301 (but also to the 401) a new soul, as it can be ran via a large flywheel and - instead of using the vulcanized rubber intermediate wheel - using a belt... yes... a belt on a 301!

My friend Alessandro - owner of the black, one-of-a-kind 301 - who sent to me the pixes I'm showing, told me he's VERY satisfied with the final result...

Will investigate... Pierre Riffaud's site

To me, the beauty of the Garrard is the incredible torque that the idler brings to the party. Rumble has never been an issue for me, but all of those TD-124 fans out there can't be wrong. Sounds like fun.
