Garrardzilla... waiting to complete hauling my ol' trusty 301 into...







... Raymond's "solid" chassis...

An easy, BUT delicate job, folks... I'm doing my homeworks, yet cannot stand in my shoes waiting to listen to - at last - the completed, full optionals;-) "Garrardzilla"...

So, here are - in the meantime - some shots of "white whale" platter...

The final result will be ready, soon... stay tuned!

Look forward TRULY gorgeous results... the most difficult task is keeping "that" Garrard's feeling, NOT going on unknown paths... like creating a new freak, a Frankenstein: not looking for obtaining a wannabe Micro or a Verdier, actually;-)!

All must be carefully balanced and cared for... new, bespoke plinth, spindle, platter, mat, stainless-steel spings set, intermediate idler-wheel... like in a recipe for a great dish, difficulties and expense and effort must not over-shadow or make it redundant the final result... ALL must "click" together and sound easy and effortless... and, possibly, better - I mean MUCH better - than a stock Garrard 301;-)))

A Garrardzilla.
